Book Description

    5.0 out of 5 stars The best in the series by far!!!!! 4 Feb. 2012
    This book is amazing. It is definately the best in the Henderson's boys series, closly followed by the amazing 'The Escape.' This storyline picks up where 'Grey Wolves' left off and follows the story of Marc as he tries to escape from prison. After ten months of trying and failing to escape, he has almost given up hope. But after he does escape from prison he has to get to France as quick as possible and (no spoilers!!!) he has a vital and dangerous mission to perform when he gets there. This book is AMAZING there are no other words for it, and along the way we see Marc team up with some old characters.

    Henderson is such a likeable character and we can easily relate to him. Rosie and Paul are also easily relateable as they are around the same age as the target audience for this book. Muchamore has again written an excellent and clever chapter in the series and I look forward to the next book, 'One Shot Kill' to be released in the beginning of November. In the meantime I will be waiting in anticipation for the new book in his CHERUB series, 'Guardian Angel,' to be released in early August. Well done Muchamore, keep up the good work!!

    ***WARNING*** Do not let anyone under the age of 12 read this book, it has loads of bad language and violence in it.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Astounding 2 Feb. 2012
    In my opinion, this is the best Henderson boys series book aswell as one of the best by Robert Muchamore. I read it in one sitting and the only other book I've doon that with was the Recruit. It follows Marc throughout the book as he escapes through occupied Europe to get back to England. I'll try not to spoil it, but he meets up with a few old characters.
    One of the best books I've ever read and I can't wait for the next in the series!

    5.0 out of 5 stars I love it! 24 Feb. 2012
    By Paul
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    From the very start this book captures your imagination, and takes you into World War two. The main character Marc tries to bust out of a german prison with four other inmates, and so the adventures begin. I strongly recommend this book to other eleven+ readers, I have read all the "Cherub" & "Henderson boys" series and this is one of the best yet.

    5.0 out of 5 stars The Prisoner 12 Aug. 2014
    By njy
    Format:Kindle Edition
    This book is by far one of the best books in Muchamore's collection. It has a gripping storyline and cliff hangers that'll drive you mad. I have had to put my kindle down several times because I'm afraid of what'll happen to the protagonist. This is a great book to read on your holidays, as I found out, and you just want to turn the page over and over again. I was quite distraught when the book ended. I thought for sure there would be more, but alas. It was a truly great read and I encourage many more to read it. I think it suits an auidence of about 13+ due to some of the language used. But none the less, it's a great story. Enjoy fans of Muchamore!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Best book I've read so far 11 Feb. 2015
    By Ethan
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I think that this book has everything adventure,adrenalin and romance. I like this book because I find it really enjoyable seeing how Marc is beginning to develop his espionage skills and how much he's grown as an agent since the first books. I would recommend this to children aged 10 and up due to intense vocabulary and sophisticated plot however I do not wish to off put younger readers as it is a very likeable read.

    4.0 out of 5 stars good 11 April 2012
    By Stephen
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    this book continues the trend in the hendersons boys of being an excellent read. the way muchamore sets the scene and characters in vivid detail makes the book almost seem real. however i would exercise caution for readers below 12/13 as there are graphic nude scenes. only critiscim of the new book is it is a bit to short.
