Book Description

31 May 2011 Heroes

14-year-old Luke Kitson has it all – a luxury London flat. A massive telly. No school. No parents. And the ability to hack his way into any dream he could imagine. Until one day, a knock at his door brings him to ELITE – a covert section of MI5, full of teenage cyberspys working to combat cyber terrorists. But when Luke and the ELITE team begin investigating YourLife, a new social networking site with vast ambitions, his new cyberspy job takes a turn for the terrifying. Disappearances begin - first members of the site, next MI5 agents, and finally one of the ELITE hackers. Luke’s mission? Infiltrate YourLife's skyscraper headquarters, find his friend, and try to stay alive. One hundred floors. One thousand people who will do anything to stop him. Can Luke prove that he belongs to the ELITE, or will he die trying?

i-SSASSINS is part of the HEROES series – created with series editor Frank Cottrell Boyce and specifically written to engage and captivate less confident readers.

An epic tale packed full of action and cliff-hangers that boys and girls will not be able to put down. A great solution for reluctant readers and encouraging reading for pleasure.

“The action was exciting and balanced with information that helped to develop the plot... My pupils have a variety of reading difficulties and they are loving this series!” Julie Sutherland, Forrester High School, Edinburgh

“A fabulous story and so inventive!” Christine Babbs, Liberton High School, Edinburgh

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent read! 1 Aug 2011
By Abi B
I bought this book for my 12 year old son who took it on holiday and read it in two days. His verdict: "Brilliant!"
He liked the fact that there was lots of detail about the main character, including a bit about his past, in the first chapter, so he felt he got to know him. He also liked that the characters were teenagers. The main storyline is that a group of teenagers try to stop terrorists and others from taking over the world using computers. He found it exciting and quite different to other things he'd read. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Short, punchy read 2 May 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Part of a series called Heroes, these are targeted at less able and reluctant readers, especially boys as the main character in this story(and many of the others), is a 14 year old boy. Luke Kitson has re-invented himself using his skills as a cyber hacker. When his granny died, he managed to create not only a new persona for himself, but also a lifestyle to match - that is until ELITE, a cyber spy team of crack young people track him down and enrol him to their team. They are tasked with solving and eradicating cyber crime and terrorist threats before they happen - using sophisticated cyber monitoring techniques. Hearing of the latest initiative, due to go global and supported by the UK government, the ELITE team are asked to find out more. They are asked to infiltrate the "YourLifeNetwork" and see if it's as good as it appears, but all doesn't go according to plan and Luke and Gemma find themselves fighting for not only their lives, but the fate of the world. Fast paced, well written and current in its subject matter it will appeal particularly to young adults who are IT savvy
