The Lovereading4Kids comment
A fast pace, genius plotting, original storyline and compelling characters. What more do you need in a book to get even the most reluctant reader reading? You don't. Just give them this gripping read from one of the UK's best new talent and you'll have them hooked. When it becomes apparent that a secret military experiment to turn children into weapons has gone horribly wrong an edge of your seat chase ensues across years and continents. Brilliant. Bunker 10 and Crash are his two previous novels. Click here to see them.
Colony by J A Henderson
Thirty years ago a secret army research facility was destroyed - overrun by millions of ants. Two survivors fled the carnage, unaware that something terrible escaped with them. Now a teenage boy and girl discover that they are linked to that fateful day.
Betrayed by their families and hounded by the military, they begin to realize their whole lives have been a lie. Worst than that, the ants are gathering again ...
Reviews of his two earlier novels:
'One of the UK's most promising children's writers' Edinburgh Evening News
'I raced through it. Great stuff. If there were more books like this out there may be boys would be reading more' Charlie Higson
'Compels from the first page. Strongly recommmended. Now for the film?' Books for Keeps
