Eva Nine visits her own kind in the majestic city of New Attica in A Hero For WondLa, the sequel to Tony DiTerlizzi’s bestselling sci-fi book for kids, The Search for WondLa.

Rescued

After losing her robot mother, Muthr, 12-year-old Eva Nine and her alien friend Rovender Kitt move on with their lives. They’re rescued by a teenage pilot who flies them to the established human city of New Attica, where Eva Nine can reunite with her kind. But when she arrives, things aren’t quite what she expects.

Corrupt Society

The city is governed with extreme control. No citizens are allowed to leave, or even learn about the other life forms that live on the planet. Not only that, but everyone sports an identical, strange fashion sense, making it difficult to tell one person from the next. Then Eva meets a long-lost family member who tells her the shocking truth of what’s really going on behind the scenes.

Bye Bye Aliens

When Eva learns that Rovender wasn’t permitted into the human city, she immediately goes on the hunt for him, nearly getting herself and her long-lost sister killed in the process. It seems the corrupt ruler of the city will stop at nothing to take back the world he believes is his, even it if means destroying the newly arrived aliens in the process.

The Bottom Line

Eva Nine’s adventures intensify in the second installment of Tony DiTerlizzi’s WondLa series. While the The Search for WondLa felt magical, A Hero For WondLa ramped it up with a corrupt dystopian feel. Parts of this book were exciting, while a few parts lacked intensity and sometimes seemed confusing. But as a whole, both books proved to be worthy reads. We definitely recommend this series.
