More About the Author

Robert Muchamore was born in Islington in 1972 and spent thirteen years working as a private investigator. He loves Arsenal and watching people fall down holes. He hates swimming and getting chased by cows. He was inspired to create the CHERUB series by his nephews' complaints about the lack of anything for them to read! The CHERUB series has now become a number one bestseller in several countries.

Format: Paperback
As a dyslexic I have always been reticent to read books. So when we went on holiday to the most sleepiest place in the world, boredom around the pool forced me to pick up my sons copy of the recruit while he was in the pool. 10 days later here I am finishing divine madness, in what can only be described as a minor miracle. 5 books in 10 days; before this the best I achieved was 4 weeks for the curious incident. Just like the stories before this has gripping chapters (that are not too long, which make you think just another chapter before i turn out the light) that make you eager to know whats next. Unlike before, I did get a little bored in the middle third, but the background to mind control techniques, have really given me an insight into how the shopping channels can sting my wife for so much money!
The book made me laugh in some places as an adult so most 12 year olds should find the 'illumination' of James predicament in the septic tank mildely ammusing.
The book is more detailed in plot than some of the others, but not to heavy that it makes it boring.
My only concern would be some of the languague for younger readers but then again my son is only 10 and has read 1 a day also, and as yet is still polite (at least in earshot!).
What is superb about all the series is that if it can get both dyslexics and 10 year old boys to spend hours reading then that has to be a good thing.
Recomended for children and Male adults who just couldnt stand reading anything but the paper (especially ones that read the paper from the sports page first)......you will be rewarded!

Absolutely fabulous! I had to buy this book to go on hols as I'd read the previous in the series and had to read more. Amazon were amazing with their promise of delivery too.
Divine Madness is about these 'Cherubs' teenage M15 agents who infiltrate a cult in order to stop environmental terrorists form killing more people. You get totally engrossed in the book as its action packed. Read the others in the series too!

Format: Paperback
Divine Madness is definitely the most action packed and explosive of the current 5 CHERUB books. Muchamore's latest sees James Adams, Lauren Adams and Dana Smith, three undercover teenage spies infiltrate a religious cult known as The Survivors. It had been discovered on a separate mission that The Survivors were brainwashing vulnerable children into working with the Eco-Terrorist organisation: 'Help Earth'. So the three Cherubians task is to infiltrate the cult, they will be subjected to the same brainwashing powers that have over powered many ordinary school children before them. Will the agents training be enough to shield them or will they be manipulated by the cult members?

Divine Madness contains at least twice the thrills as any of the previous books in the series; with superb action sequences filled with suspense and excitement you'll never want to put this book down.

If you've never experienced the gusto of reading a CHERUB book before then you must buy this book now, and once you've finished reading, be sure to relinquish your cravings and buy the rest of the books in the series.

I amsolotly love all the books in the cherub series and this is no exeption. I would recommend this book to people above the age of 12 as some sections may be unsuitabal for people below this age. Well worth the asking price and well worth a read. suited to adults and children alike. overall a fantastic book thats well worth reading.

Format: Paperback
In his fifth adventure, James Adams, a teenage secret agent, and several of his colleagues are sent to infiltrate a religious cult believed to have terrorist links.

As usual Robert Muchamore has crafted a thrilling and action-packed read which will easily hold the attention of teenagers of any age. He expands the cast again, and really uses secondary characters well, making them feel fully developed and far more than guest characters. It's really nice to see what's happening from so many different teenage points of view.

The plot is well constructed and presents a really detailed look at how cults form and recruit. It seems clear that Muchamore has done a lot of research, and as such the book has an educational element hidden within the narrative, which is an interesting and effective way to warn readers about the dangers of indoctrination.

The Cherub series is one of the most entertaining things I've read in recent years and really deserves to top bestseller lists and achieve the notoriety of other high profile series aimed at a similar age group.

Having read this a long time ago (and thoroughly enjoyed it) I came back to read it again and found the similarities between "The Arc" and Jonestown disturbingly similar. I wonder if anyone else has noticed? One of my favourites along with Man vs. Beast and as with all the CHERUB books, a light, easy read but with more adult language and content.

I love the Cherub books, interesting form the out set and you just can't put the books down!

Mission in Australia, eco warriors gone mad. Brain washing, trying not to conform and keep on the mission at hand. Isolation from the outside world. Muchamore writes like the Cherub school is real, and he was a former pupil he writes it so well.
