Cadel Piggott has a genius IQ and a fascination with systems of all kinds. At seven, he was illegally hacking into computers. Now he's fourteen and studying for his World Domination degree, taking classes like embezzlement, misinformation, forgery, and infiltration at the institute founded by criminal mastermind Dr. Phineas Darkkon. Although Cadel may be advanced beyond his years, at heart he's a lonely kid. When he falls for the mysterious and brilliant Kay-Lee, he begins to question the moral implications of his studies for the first time. But is it too late to stop Dr. Darkkon from carrying out his evil plot?

An engrossing thriller with darkness and humor, freaks and geeks, Evil Genius explores the fine line between good and evil in a strange world of manipulations and subterfuge where nothing is as it seems.

    " This book was an amazing story to read. I am glad that it has a sequel. This is a very action-packed, thrilling, and nail-biting story. Full of deception, lies, disguise, and thrills. "

    " This book was gret. After getting used to the techno terms, I really loved this book. I hope this series has a lot more books in store. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Teresa | 8/26/2013

    " Fun concept that turned itself inside out to come to a "good" ending. I want to read the second book because I'm interested in seeing what happens next, but I'm not approaching it with as much enthusiasm. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danny | 8/25/2013

    " A very intriguing story. It was very gripping from the start though near the end I started skipping most of the lengthy paragraphs. Most of the complicated language was lost on me but I still understood all that was happening - thankfully. Great story! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cheyenne Nevada | 8/2/2013

    " It had enough twists and turns to keep ME entertained. Not to mention the fact the charecter seemed to be relatible as an evil genius turned good can be. =] "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 7/3/2013

    " this is awesome. the second book is just as good, the quality never changes, and the style is sophisticated and interesting "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joseph | 5/31/2013

    " A fun youth fiction book that was longer than it needed to be. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Blowry | 3/7/2013

    " This series was great because in series like this it is rare that you see any of the events have an impact on the main character. In this series you really see it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maureen | 9/13/2012

    " Hilarious premise, surprising plot twists, overall: I loved it! Started reading this early one morning when i couldn't sleep - finished it later that day. Like other Catherine Jinks books, worthy of immediate inhalation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeanne | 5/17/2012

    " It seemed a little slow at the start but really picked up towards the end. I look forward to the second in the series. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Gloss | 9/17/2011

    " Such a mighty disappointment: this book has a fantastic premise, but the worldbuilding is only so-so and the protagonist is...um. Somewhere between profoundly autistic and sociopathic, certainly affectless. Since this is told via his perspective, the reader remains chilled and alienated. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Allison | 8/28/2011

    " I'm picky on what i read and this book was amazing. It has an extremely well thought out plot and I've never read anything in a school library that is this intriguing I encourage everyone to read it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rebecca Mcdole | 8/17/2011

    " With so many books coming out these days about superheroes and so on, I expected this teen release to be fun and cool and exciting. Cadel's struggle, good vs. evil, is almost nonexistent till the end and by then I didn't care. Too cliche for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelli Sprowls | 7/31/2011

    " I really didn't expect this book to become what it is...I was picturing a totally different type of story. I liked it a lot and am now in the process of looking for the rest of the series because it is just too intriguing to stop reading now. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adam | 7/24/2011

    " I didn't enjoy this novel as much as I expected to. I didn't like the idea and plot of the entire book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tessa Eger | 7/2/2011

    " I thought it was ok but it was kind of confusing.
    "

    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lea Ann | 5/17/2011

    " A little bit of a slog, but I love the idea of all the villains in the world going to evil genius school. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lesa | 5/13/2011

    " Very good plot, lots of twists and turns, even though it does tend to get kind of boggy in some parts. I feel for Cadel, and he reminds me of some of the gifted students I've taught over the years. I devoured this and can't wait to read the sequel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gabrielle | 5/10/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rhi | 4/27/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 lisa | 4/25/2011

    " the tone at the beginning threw me a little- i thought the book was going to be more middlegrade and was surprised that it was so long. it got pretty intense as cadel got older though! can't wait to read the next one. also i am in love with sonja. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ana | 4/18/2011
