Review by: Suzanne Fellenz on Sep. 16, 2013 :
A delightful sequel to Otters in Space! The author deftly develops the characters further, including details relevant to the species of each one. Poor lovable Trudith – as a dog she struggles to understand the nuances of communication when she’s hanging out with her feline friends. At times I was focused on getting better acquainted with a character when the plot would develop a new twist, and I could hardly read fast enough to find out how this new challenge would be resolved. A solar system thriller unlike any other!

This was a great follow-up to Otters in Space. A fun space adventure filled with surprising depth. I absolutely love how the perspective changes from Kipper's character to Trudith's character every other chapter. Having the dog perspective is hilarious. I found myself laughing out loud a lot while reading this book. So refreshing!

A great read, with something for all ages - talking cats and dogs (and, of course, otters!), political intrigue, social issues, loads of fun and excitement. I love this series. Mary Lowd has done it again. I hope there is a third book (and maybe more)!!

Review by: Garrett Marco on Aug. 25, 2013 :
After being surprised by my enjoyment of the first Otters in Space, it came as no surprise that its sequel had everything I loved about the first installment and more. The plot picks up where it left off with our feline heroine Kipper on a ship with its crazy otter crew and our canine heroine back on earth dealing with the nitty-gritty of post-human politics and cat/dog relations.

All the humor and commentary from the first book cross over quite well, but the biggest addition (beyond the deepening of characters and a broadening of plot) is a mystery on Jupiter where there have been attacks on before unknown cat colonies on the gas giant’s moons. The answer to the mystery had me jumping out of my seat and squealing with childlike joy. Otters in Space 2: Jupiter Deadly is another great installment in a powerful series that goes beyond its surface of anthropomorphic, talking animals and dives into the deeper politics of our time and our mutual hope and fear of what awaits us beyond the bounds of Earth.
