The Lovereading4Kids comment

A terrific new series for teen boys who want something that bridges the gap from Anthony Horowitz and Charlie Higson to authors such as Chris Ryan and Andy McNab. This, the first in the series is a high-octane, adrenalin-fuelled combat adventure series – a real page turner and sure to get readers hooked on the series.
Thrown out of the SAS, Mitch thought his days as a Special Forces soldier were well and truly over. But when he is approached by an undercover unit embarking on a dangerous mission to rescue a West African freedom fighter, kidnapped by a gang of ruthless bandits who will stop at nothing to get what they want, he must make a choice. But is Mitch the right man for the job? Can he secure the trust of the men in the undercover unit, and step back into the danger zone? Perfect for boys looking for a gripping, aspirational read.

Boys will devour the testosterone-filled, nonstop action and page-turning suspense of this cinematic-like read. -- School Library Journal

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Writing reviews help the children with their literacy skills and we always read the books together which gives us good quality family time!
