After defeating Lord Electrocucius, Buggy has become a Warrior for the Greater Good of Mankind - picking up where she last left off and ready for another adventure.

Now Buggy and her brother, Frank, have discovered a theory presented by two very prestigious scientists, Cedar and Cypress Deadwood. This theory states that if one of the Gateways to the Nexus is opened (like it was in her previous adventure), the universe would become unbalanced and chaos would erupt.

With the help of her best friends, Sid and Veronica, Buggy deciphers messages, and goes on an adventure to face enemies far worse then any she has met in the past. Fuelled by curiosity and her wild sense of adventure, she embarks on another journey to save the world.

Overall, this was a good book. The plot was very interesting and the characters were well-developed. I didn't enjoy it as much as the first book in the series, BUGGY CRENSHAW AND THE BUNGLER'S PARADOX, but it was still good. It took a long time for me to get into the story, but once I got about 100 pages in, it started to pick up and was quite enjoyable.

This is a good book (and series) for younger teens, as it really stimulates the imagination. ( )

This is the second book in the Buggy Crenshaw series and it starts off right where the last one ended. This one is even more magic filled than the last. They already defeated one evil, but another one is rising. But what happens when Mother Nature turns on everyone? Only Buggy, Sid and Veronica can fight the evil and save the world...again.

I really liked the first book in this series, but this one just couldn't hold my attention. It was well written and had tons of adventure and magic and suspense, but it couldn't hold my attention and i can think of only one reason why. The characters are kids. I thought it gave the first book a nice spin and made it original, but now it's just getting a little annoying figuring things out three chapters before the main character does. I think this would be great for younger readers, but anyone who gets easily annoyed by ignorance you might want to pick another series. ( )

Buggy Crenshaw is back! Beginning exactly where The Bungler's Paradox ended, The Deadwood Principle: Evolution is the first of two volumes that further document the adventures of 12-year-old Buggy Crenshaw, a self-proclaimed Warrior for the Greater Good of Mankind who regrettably often creates more problems than she solves. Based on a theory presented by two of Lloyd's Hollow's most revered scientists, Cedar and Cypress Deadwood, this epic offers proof that what the brothers claim-- that if one of the five Gateways to the Nexus, or the point where Good and Evil meet, were somehow destroyed or set off limits (as in The Bungler s Paradox)--the universe would become unbalanced and cosmic chaos would result unless a particular Warrior who was born to save the world can stop it... While still reeling over her first encounter with Evil, Buggy is visited by the Rebel Phoenix Alabaster, an ancient and feeble creature whose cryptic message is only the beginning of one of her most harrowing adventures to date. With the help of her friends Sid Piccolo and Veronica Hamburg, Buggy deciphers the Phoenix's message to mean she must now face an even more sinister and alarming enemy: the Evil Empress Eartha Naturalus, the second of five Dark Lords of the Underworld. Although the Empress is presently trapped in her prison behind the Dimensional Door, this Wicked Mother Nature is still somehow causing world-shattering earthquakes and the startling arrival of black and twisted trees that rocket from the earth's core, destroying all that stand in their way. While the Empress' Legions begin their violent takeover of our world, Buggy and her friends scramble for a way to put a stop to the chaos before it's too late. Fueled by her unrivaled curiosity and admitted addiction to adventure, Buggy employs every bit of cleverness she has to save the world, but imagine her surprise when she learns that according to the Deadwood brothers' theory she was the scoundrel who caused this second coming of Evil... The Deadwood Principle: Evolution is only the beginning, though. You won't want to miss this adventure's startling conclusion in the upcoming second volume Buggy Crenshaw and The Deadwood Principle: Revolution! But be forewarned: the Devil's in the details...
