Genres: Detective; Mystery; Adventure; Action
Every day thousands of animals die in laboratory experiments. Some say these experiments provide essential scientific knowledge, while others commit acts of extreme violence in order to stop them. James and Lauren Adams are stuck in the middle. They’re CHERUB agents. Trained professionals with one essential advantage: adults never suspect that children are spying on them.
I love all of Robert Muchamore books, but I particularly enjoy those in the CHERUB series; with a perfect blend of adventure, mystery, suspense, action and thriller, this book kept me on the edge of my seat from page one. The characters are well developed and each have their own unique characteristics which make them interesting to follow, however whilst on their mission, the children are able to act professionally whilst still allowing their characters to show through.
Muchamore’s writing is gripping and thrilling, with perfect length chapters to keep you turning the pages, to find out what happens next. A wonderful book for junior readers.
