Lab Spill (The Cool Thing Series Book 2) by Robert Rife – Review by Barbie England

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Lab Spill is the second book in this series. You should probably read the first book, The Cool Thing first for maximum enjoyment. There is definitely some dark humor in this series. In this story you are following the adventures of RL, Jayderay, and Frankie. There are two main settings. The first is in Texas, and the second, well that’s in a place called the Waydown. The Waydown is a place that is the remnants of a long-ago abandoned and thought to be sealed off science experiment gone totally wrong, Lab Spills are creatures that have mutated from this area. Jayderay has been given a house known as Roaton. The house’s personality, a lab created person named Proby (who goes by Elvis), and the cast of characters explore what happens with the breastplate/portal between the “topside” and the Waydown in this series installment.

LAB SPILL: A Dark Comedy. Maybe. is the second book in The Cool Thing series. I recommend reading the first book in this series before this one. When I thought the story couldn’t get wilder, the story was continued. This has more twists and turns, fun dialogue, and more. I enjoy the author’s sense of humor and how it is used in the story. For example, I never would think slime could be a character in a story but guess what it can be! If you like a fun, out-of-this-world read then grab this series. I will give look out for more from this author in the future.

Not like my normal style, but now the 2nd book I’ve read by Rife. He definitely has a fun, campy, 80s movie ridiculous kind of vibe. Honestly I’m not a huge fan of what I know of the characters, he makes them easy to dislike. There’s lots of weirdness, “follow me down the rabbit hole” kind of read because it’s fun and most certainly unique. Slime, sci fi, horror, comedy…check it out!

I just adore Robert Rife. He spins such a fun, interesting tale that twists and turns. You laugh, you feel horrified, and you just are bound to enjoy every second. The second book in the Cool Things series didn’t disappoint! Get your quirky on with this crazy tale. I have rethought my idea of having a bad day that’s for sure!

RL and Jayderay continue their terrifying adventure! I am completely obsessed with this series! It is full of dark, fun, twisted, and quirky humor with settings and characters to match. Robert Rife creates a weird (in the best sort of way) Sci-fi tale full of unexpected twists and turns and laugh out loud scares. I will now officially be afraid of slime! I really hope there is a book 3. I am not ready for this series to end. I highly recommend this to all lovers of Sci-fi and for anyone who just wants something unique.

Funny and attention-grabbing. This book had me laughing out loud and was a good mix of dark humor, sci-fi, and suspense. The dialog was probably my favorite part of the book. This one was strange but in the best way. I am going to read more by this author in the future!
Happy Reading!

This story was a fitting sequel to the first novel. It had nonstop action and surprises. I enjoyed exploring this world a bit more and was excited to reacquaint myself with the characters. This story will not be everybody’s cup of tea but if you want to explore something just a little different I recommend this author and this story.

To say I enjoyed this book is an understatement! It is a unique adventure, that is going to give you laughs, mystery and a good scare from time to time. The dialogue was pretty well thought of, which made for a fun action and page turning book that has scares and adventure. Definitely recommend for a good time! I missed out on the first book of the series, but I can guarantee you that I will definitely be reading that one as well!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I am pretty (read: absolutely) picky about sequels when it comes to series that I like, and I’m excited to say that Lab Spill is even better than The Cool Thing. I still loved reading the first in the series of course, but this one is a gamechanger.

We are right back in the middle of the mutants in the Waydowns of our favorite starship. Poor RL and Jayderay are still kind of exploring their feelings, but also very aware that the medieval suit causing a ruckus in RL’s house. What or who is coming up from the Waydowns?

I liked that we get to explore more inside the starship this time. I highly recommend this book especially if you love sci-fi, dark humor, and general weirdness. You won’t find another read like this and you’ll be clamoring for the next from this author just like I am!

RL and Jaderay return in the second part of this story, RL still has the breastplate and it is currently locked in a safe, but soon a mysterious explosion breaks it and RL has to move it elsewhere, preferably away from Jaderay and all her praying and shouting about it being the devils handiwork, like she does every time she sees it. Meanwhile, in the depths of the Waydowns, the lower decks of a lost starship, an insane doctor, a bunch of mutants and some crazy pulsating mould are moving through the area and becoming ore unstable and unhinged as time goes on, some still look vaguely human and others do not, but the Coiler in particular is slowly moving away from its isolated area, but the creatures down in the bowels of this ancient and forgotten place all have one thing in common, they all need to kill.

As Jaderay and RL explore a new acquisition, they manage to find their way into the Waydowns and have no idea where they are or how much danger they are in, but will they manage to find their way back out, or will this lab spill take their lives, before the other inhabitants get there first? This is a sci-fi which is full of dark humour and darker environments where things crawl and skitter through the darkness to find their next victim in a tale which will equally make you laugh, despair and grimace throughout, but will have you so intrigued you will just have to finish it.
