Simon Bloom and his friends, Owen and Alysha, aren’t ordinary seventh-graders. Ever since Simon became Keeper of the Teacher’s Edition of Physics and led his friends in defeating deadly Sirabetta, they’ve been having fun playing with the laws of physics and hanging out with their all-seeing Narrator. That is, until Sirabetta escapes and sets out for revenge.    

Now Simon and his friends must follow her to the Order of Biology’s realm, a vast undersea dome filled with harsh terrain and fierce beasts. Simon and company will get help from old friends and new, plus some wild abilities from the Book of Biology, but that might not be enough against Sirabetta and her ruthless army. Science and magic will blend and bend–with the universe at stake–as Simon struggles to master the Octopus Effect in this laugh-filled, action-packed, and dynamically narrated sequel to Simon Bloom, the Gravity Keeper.

    " Maybe a 4, almost a 4. I liked this one better than the first -- the imaginative biodome headquarters for the Biology Guild was cool and I like the interplay with the narrator even more in this one. My 8-year-old gives it 5 stars. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric | 5/17/2013

    " So far I like this book just as much as the first Simon Bloom. Although the bending of science is more fantasy and science fiction, it makes for a good story and cool action. Not to mention some good humor. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniel | 1/20/2013

    " Another fun Simon Bloom adventure. Simon Bloom once again defends the world from Sirbetta using his powers over the laws of physics. This book is a great tie in with The Physics of Superheroes. "
