Hey all, I’m back with the second volume of a series for this week’s Bookish Wednesday. It’s “Growth Hero Volume 02” by Brent Tyman.

Plot: The plot is a bit better in this entry, mainly because the main character Alex Augere isn’t constantly comparing things to games and novels from his past like in the first entry. This volume of “Growth Hero” still isn’t a great story, but it isn’t terrible either. Still it picks up almost immediately after the ending of the first volume and covers some major revelations that Alex and his party have to overcome in order to succeed. I won’t say much more since that’d be spoiler territory, but this volume does end in a pretty surprising way.

Characters: We get to meet a few new characters, but my favorite is Orielle. That said, the characters are still relatively weak and not very interesting.

Overall: A fairly solid sequel, but it’s not extraordinary.
