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.

The book is disappointing. Most of it has nothing to do with James, instead we follow a female journalist. The book seems to obsess over the plot as if it is some master plan conclusion to the series, but in actual fact it's just about a rich man building a hotel and how some environmentalists are trying to stop him. Cherub features on the sidelines, and it's hardly Jame's final epic adventure, he barely even features in it.

Very disappointing.

I am a huge fan of the CHERUB series, and purchased this book as soon as it came out, but I have to say that I felt that it is a slight let down. The plot itself is a slightly bizarre choice, and the use of a lengthy flashback which doesnt involve James at all is rather dull and mundane. The bits on campus are extremely eventful, and I feel that they are equally as enjoyable and well written as any other book in the series. I also like the bit when James finishes his mission with the Brigands which comes right at the start but after this point it all starts to go downhill. If you are expecting an action packed mission, then this may perhaps not live up to your full expectations, but it is a good ending to an immense series. It feels as if Muchamore has tried hard to give James a happy sendoff, but the result is slightly cliched and lacks depth. Ranking this book, I would sadly have to put it as my second least favourite, after Man vs Beast, but I would also add that it is a must for an CHERUB fan, and that the book reads much better on its second read than on the first.

personally i couldn't wait to read the fate of james adams. what was i expecting... the biggest mission ever, pull out all the stops. what did i get... something that was limp and lifeless that at best was vaguely interesting. overall i think that muchamore has ended up writing a story that will fit the epilogue he had in mind. straight away thats back to front. you write a story to blow people away and use the epilogue to tie up loose ends. i have spent the last 3 years anticipating the endless possibilities and this is the result. fair enough it wasn't dreadful but then again it didn't grab you by the scruff of your neck and throw you into the action like we have seen numerous times before. we know he could do it, so why didn't he? the only reason i can think of for him not giving us the gung ho book we wanted is that he couldn't think of the plot but knew he had a deadline so wrote a fairly half arsed atempt. as a cherub fan i would say read it to complete the set but i will always remember his last great book to be the general.

i had always said that the weakest books in the series were the fall and brigands mc. this is worse than them by far.

i just hope the next cherub trilogy will revert back to the early cherub style of writing.

I have been a keen reader of the Cherub series and eagerly anticipated the release of Shadow Wave. However I found the lack of action and slow pace made it very difficult to enjoy the book. Most readers will purchase this book hoping for an exciting ending to the series. THIS IS NOT WHAT YOU GET. Very disappointing end to what would otherwise be an excellent series.

The book was ok but not a good or fiting end to the series, wish muchamore did not rush the last 3 books out and they would have been a lot better

here is my list of the best cherub books

1. Mad dogs
2. The killing
3. Class A
4. Divine Madness
5. The Recruit
6. The General
7. Maximum Security
8. Brigands MC
9. The fall
10. Man VS Beast
11. The sleepwalker
12. Shadow Wave

I know some will disagree but shadow wave deserves to be last it was only ok

This was the last book in the James Adams' series I'm very sad that this series ended I'll miss this but this book was great way to end the series and all I have to do now is read the Henderson Boys and then I've read all the Robert Muchamore books. This book kept me on the edge of my seat I couldn't stop reading the book. But I am sad to see James Adams go. By the way I am 11 and I recommend this book to 11-14 (not that it's rude) I will dearly miss the series.

The first eleven cherub books were incredible. They were perfect because there was no boring bits and you just couldn't put it down. I was very exited about the book for ages and bought it the day it came out.
I started reading and the first 6 chapters were funny and unputdownable. But then there was a bit where James' old friend Kyle has a flashback. I thought this would just be short but it ended up taking up half the book and i wanted to know what happened to James and the current cheub agents. The mission after the flashback was enterttaining again, however and kept me reading until the end.
Overall, this book was good, but i was a bit dissapointed that half the book was a flashback, when i wanted to see a really big, exiting mission to finish the incredible series with a bang!
