From New York Times bestselling author Rob Venditti comes the second book in the Miles Taylor and the Golden Cape series, about an eighth grader who finds himself unexpectedly thrust into the role of real-life superhero. His latest mission: to defeat an army of robots designed to destroy him!

Master the golden cape.
Been there.
Save the world from an alien invasion.
Done that.
Dominate the eighth grade.
Maybe later.
Battle an army of super-deadly robots designed to destroy you.
Sure didn’t see that one coming.

After a summer of fighting crime, Miles Taylor is bummed that nothing has changed for him at Chapman Middle School. Sure, he may be in the eighth grade now and have a secret identity as Gilded, the world’s only superhero, but that doesn’t protect him from the Jammer’s bullying or make him any more deserving of Josie’s affection. Miles starts spending more and more time as Gilded, neglecting his schoolwork and his friends. It’s not long before his bad attitude lands him and his best friend, Henry, in a military compound, at the mercy of the power-crazed General Breckenridge. When the General steals the golden cape, Miles finds himself back at square one with no superpowers...and no hope of escape. On the verge of losing everything—and everyone—he cares about, Miles must discover the hero within himself before the General puts his evil plans into action.
