A gripping and action-packed historical sleuth thriller in the vein of The Da Vinci Code and indeed teens who have grown up with the likes of Young Bond and Artemis Fowl. The clever mix of intricate and action-packed plotting and characters that seem all too real make this a terrific adventure thriller not to be missed. It is the first in a series but also a self-contained story.


The Invisible Assassin : The Malichea Quest by Jim Eldridge

As a Junior Press Officer for the British government, Jake is sent to cover a 'non-story' - a demonstration against the construction of a laboratory on the supposed site of an ancient fairy ring.

But what Jake sees there is shocking and terrifying and leads him to investigate a clandestine organisation - the Order of Malichea. And then sinister things start happening: Jake is 'accidentally' pushed, almost falling under a tube train; Lauren, Jake's girlfriend, has all her notes on the Order stolen; and then Jake returns home to find a dead body in his flat and is accused of murder. Who is trying to scare Jake? Is it the British government? Or other, more sinister agencies? Either way, Jake and Lauren must fight for their lives ...

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.
