An exciting, swiftly moving tale (School Librarian)

A fast-paced action thriller, which should turn into a fantastic series - if James manages to live that long. (Young Post)

Format: Paperback
Robert Muchamore is an author who knows no boundaries. He tackles issues which other children's authors fear, which makes his books realistic, exciting and influential.

Yet, making 124 pages, into a book containing real issues, relating to a modern world, must have been challenging.

It would be easy for me to say he failed. But he didn't.

The book is quick to get started, and you're soon into the action packed school day. Featuring a highly skilled CHERUB agent, knocking 'Johno' unconscious. This is Muchamore's writing, it's not pretty, it's real.

The book then progresses to introduce newer readers into the 'CHERUB Universe'.

CHERUB is gritty and down to earth. You won't find gadgets and kids going into space in this book. No issue is forgotten, and Muchamore relates to what his readers really want to hear.

CHERUB is a must-read for any 12+ teenager. Adults can't ignore the issues that Muchamore addresses with style and confidence, and eventually the characters will always find the 'right' answer.

Despite it's size at 124 pages, it's still a great book. The plot is interesting, pretty detailed for it's size and has some awesome events within it. Definetly a 5 star rating from me.

Format: Paperback
Despite only being a short story for world book day, the story is action packed and keeps you gripped until the very end.

Its was also good to get to know about some of the characters, who don't get big parts in the main books.

This is a great book that was written for World Book Day. It is just over 100 pages long and I think that if you are 10 - 14, you would love this book.

My 11 year old son is a big fan of Robert Muchamore's Cherub series. He loves the characters, the drama and the suspense. The books are meant for older children, but he finds it easy to read and though sometimes the content can bit a little old for him, he still enjoys them very much (he just quickly skips over the 'rude' bits and swearing!

Great book, would definitely recommend it.

I thought the dark sun was a wonderful book because it was in great detail. The dark sun was so good i was traped inside the book from page one. It was so good i read the book cover to cover. Robert Muchmore is a fantastic writer and i am very impressed of what he can write into a small book. I hope he writes more after the General!!
