With SPYDER defeated, Ben Ripley is looking forward to his life getting back to normal, or as normal as possible when you’re a superspy in training. Until someone bombs the CIA conference room next door. To Ben’s astonishment, the attacker is none other than Erica Hale, the spy-in-training he respects more than any other.
His mission: prove Erica is not a double agent working against the US, locate the fabled colonial-era insurgent group that’s blackmailing her, figure out what their devious plot is, and thwart it.
But this time, Ben finds himself up against opponents he has never encountered before: his own friends. How can he succeed when he doesn’t even know who he can trust?

For me, to be honest, it fell a bit flat. What I like about Spy School is the humor and Ben. In the first book, Spy School, Ben is brought into spy school under false pretenses and set up to fail. By showing unique gifts, Ben manages to succeed despite adverse circumstances. (The reality is that, for the most part, Ben succeeds by being good at things that a real-world spy needs to be good at, while Spy School teaches skills of the James Bond-spy variety. Anyone who has thought about intelligence work seriously knows that James Bond would have been an absolutely terrible spy. So the Spy School series is a sneaky way of showing what it really takes to be a good spy in the real world.) It is always a pleasure to see someone succeed through unexpected merit.
Unfortunately, we have little of that pleasure in Spy School Revolution. Somehow Ben never really shines. As for the humor, this one was really not all that funny. After the joke about blowing up the Witness Protection Program vehicle if they park in the wrong spot again, there was little in it that made me laugh.
Also, I have a shocking revelation to make. Stuart Gibbs has not read The Iliad. (Or had not when he wrote Spy School Revolution.) I base this claim on the following passage, where Ben writes:
"The Iliad was the ancient Greek poem that told the story of the Trojan War. I had tried reading it in sixth grade, though I had ended up skimming most of it to get to the good parts, like where the Greeks scammed the Trojans with the Trojan horse."
In actual fact, the story of the Trojan horse appears nowhere in The Iliad. The Iliad ends before the fall of Troy. The story of the Trojan horse is told in The Aeneid, written hundreds of years later by the Roman poet Virgil. This error makes nonsense of a major plot point of the last few chapters of Spy School Revolution. You can self-correct this fault by mentally substituting "The Aeneid" for "The Iliad" throughout Spy School Revolution.
