By David Burton VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This lays out the story of a number of groups, but only to completing the first step in their battle of the bands journey. Like the pilot episode of a TV Series, it doesn't really stand on its own as far more things are started than completed. It's all a bit exaggerated, with half dirt poor and the other half wealthy to mega-wealthy, but you kind of expect that with the target audience and kind of story, and it does at least include the psychological concerns of various parties and presents developing events from various sides as it jumps between the characters. The story is then reasonably interesting, but unfinished as all the protagonists start their journey and finish up only a step through it - one event has completed but the narrative arcs are mostly incomplete, and the book could have done with wrapping up a bit more and being a little less obviously episodic.

4.0 out of 5 stars First of a series - leaves you a bit in mid air. 25 July 2014
By A. I. McCulloch TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Robert Muchamore is already established as a best selling writer of young people's fiction. Here he tackles the music industry with a story linking young people from a host of different backgrounds, all with a host of different issues and all wanting to make it in music through band competitions.

The characters are generally well-drawn, interesting and engaging. Talented songwriter and guitarist Jay has a chaotic family background with a host of half-siblings. Most of his brothers are the bulky sons of a local hardened criminal, he is the lightly built offspring of the policeman his mother seduced, bullied by his thuggish younger brother. Falling out with his band mates - chiefly the noxious Tristan- he decides to set up his own band, which includes older brother and former young offender Theo.

Vocalist Summer lives with her disabled grandmother in a run down tower block where the lifts seldom work, but works hard at school and does her best to avoid trouble. Trouble comes in the shape of priviledged but flaky Michelle, the indulged child of a wealthy business family.

Dylan is the public school educated stepson of a music producer who does his best to avoid anything resembling hard work, but especially sport.

The story eventually builds to all of the above - plus others - meeting up at a band competition in London, with a plethora of incidents placing barriers in their way beforehand. There's criminal activity galore - which as in life, often goes unpunished.

The story is structured for a sequel, and consequently the ending is slightly unsatisfactory, leaving things in mid air. It's definitely not a story for younger children, but those of 13 and above - the age range of the main characters - should be fine.
There's a thread of gritty realism, including some physical violence throughout, it isn't a comfortable cosy story, so do be warned. Was all the violence necessary in a story focused around music?

After loving the CHERUB series, I was excited to see what's next from Robert Muchamore, one of my favourite authors; it did not disappoint. It's engaging, detailed, and anyone who's read CHERUB will absolutely love this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another amazing Muchamore novel 7 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I never thought Muchamore would be able to even come close to the standard of his Cherub series, but I was wrong. This was very gripping and I couldn't put it down! Can't wait for the second imstallment, 5 stars.

Story about a band who enter a rock competition and put all their energies into winning and the friends and enemies they make along the way. Teenage read but not suitable for very young readers. A good entertaining read.
