    One thought on “Burn Baby Burn: A Supervillain Novel”

    1. This book is a sequel to Nobody Gets the Girl, but it is really a stand-alone novel in the same universe. The supervillain main characters, Sundancer (formerly Burn Baby) and Pit Geek were secondary characters in Nobody Gets the Girl — here, they become the antihero protagonists.James Maxey's superhero universe is as creatively disordered as any comic book universe. There are aliens. There are supergeniuses who have literally remade the world. There are wormholes in space, powers that literall [...]

    2. This is an amazing follow-up to Nobody Gets the Girl. In fact, I'll go so far as to say that it is better in just about every way than the first book.I've always been a sucker for books where the lines of good and evil are not clear-cut. Sunday was brainwashed by her father. Pit was damaged and confused. Servant/Ogre was a conflicted bully. None of them were completely innocent, nor were they completely guilty.The nods to Nobody Gets the Girl were nice, while I appreciated that no knowledge of t [...]

    3. Stick with "Nobody Gets the Girl" unless you REALLY like downer stories.This book starts out ok, and it has some good ideas and things you don't see elsewhere. However it is on a downward slope pretty much from the beginning.It starts off pretty negative and only manages to go down from there.By the end you will look back ad the sad beginning of the story as the highlight and happy time of the book.The protagonist don't have much redeeming qualities about them and the so called hero's are worse. [...]

    4. Being a big fan of James Maxey's "Nobody Gets the Girl", I was eagerly looking forward to his next foray into the super hero world. As soon as I saw "Burn Baby Burn", I down loaded it to my Nook. I wanted to take my time, really savor this book. But I couldn't do it! "Burn Baby Burn" was just too exciting, too awesome to put down! I read this book in a day, I couldn't stop turning pages! This time it's the super villians who get the spotlight, specifically Sundancer and Pit Geek. Maxey does an i [...]

    5. I do love superheroes! Comics, movies, and novels, it does not matter.I read the previous volume in this series about this time last year. I had a lot of fun reading it.So, I picked this one up knowing some of what I had in store for me. And I was not disappointed.This book picks up a few months/years after Nobody Gets the Girl. The story follows two of the minor villains from the previous book as they look for purpose in a world without their megalomaniacal former leader.The pair end up causing [...]

    6. Reading self-published novels is seldom more rewarding than a tedious chore. They're generally poorly written, poorly plotted, poorly proofed, poorly printed, and just poorly executed all around. So I'm excited to say James Maxey's Burn Baby Burn is none of the above! While it does lack the polish that a publishing house complete with a full staff of professional editors, copyeditors, and proofreaders could provide, it still manages to be both immensely readable and insanely enjoyable. With that [...]

    7. This sequel to 2003's Nobody Gets the Girl ups the quotient of weird, wacky comic book fun. The focus is primarily on the two surviving villains from the last book. Pit Geek can eat anything by warping space-time. Sundancer's power appears to be flying and shooting flames, but this is really a byproduct of her ability to open tiny wormholes within her body and let solar energy flow through them.The war between two evil-genius scientists is over. (The good guys won, although readers of the trilog [...]

    8. I read Maxey's "Nobody Gets the Girl" back in the early '00's and thought it was incredible after reading "Burn Baby Burn" I have to say this book is even better. Maxey is the rare author who gets the superhero prose novel. He is able to construct relatable characters who you care for and root for and he handles super powers and battle scenes like a comic book pro. He also does not ridicule the characters or the genre but treats it with the respect it is due. Our two main characters, Pit Geek an [...]

    9. James Maxey is a great author Start with "Nobody Gets the Girl", and then get ready to root for the bad guys (and girls!) in this sequel Have found a new favorite author! (this will last all of a month until I've read all his books - and I can see this distracting from my own writing!) Curses!

    10. I am a big fan of Superhero and Supervillain stories and am real sorry to say this book disappoints. It starts off real well then just dies. Feel bad going against the trend here but that is how I see it.

    11. Whoa. The last thirty pages of this book is like a non-stop rush of superhero super id. Highly recommended when drinking. Full review here: superheronovels.wordpress/
