Product Description

Product Description

Melina has been preparing for a future career as a spy.

She just doesn’t know it.

Legendary spy Evan Roberts always knew that his fifteen-year-old daughter Melina also possessed
the absolute lack of fear required of an agent. Without telling her his real profession or his intention,
he began to guide her toward an eventual career as a spy. However, Melina’s world is shattered after her
mom is involved in an accident that leaves her mysteriously unhurt but unresponsive. Her father’s
plans on hold, Melina settles into life at a suburban high school, immersing herself in a world of schoolwork,
her friends and a budding romance with Alex, the cute new guy in her class.

When Melina and her father uncover shocking new information about her mother’s accident, Melina is
pulled deep into her father’s shadowy world. With Alex desperately trying to find her and only hours to go
before it will be too late to save her mother, Melina and her father work together using their combined
skills to find a way to reach her.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun and enjoyable 31 Jan 2014
By Consuming Worlds - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Melina is an incredibly smart young woman who just so happens to be the daughter of a very smart and talented spy. Only she doesn't know it. She thinks her dad is just a boring software engineer. She also doesn't know that her father has been priming her for a career as a spy her entire life. Her mother is in a coma and things just haven't been the same in the Roberts household. And her dad's latest mission changes everything, for all of them. Secrets are revealed, skills are tested and danger is around every corner.

Melina is very strong, trained from a very young age in the art of self defense, she could probably kill you in under a minute. But when it comes to talking to her school yard crush, Alex she is a bumbling school girl. Completely bewildered and out of her element. Alex is new to the school and she hopes that their shared love of science will bring them together, the fact that their dad's work together doesn't hurt either.

Evan Roberts is Melina's secret agent father who has put his life on the line in the name of his country more times than he can count. And he want's his daughter to follow in his footsteps and become a spy. He knows that she possess the skills required now all he has to do is tell her.

The Agent's Daughter is not your typical spy story, the fact that Evan is a spy is not the main part of the story. Rather it is just a portion of what makes this story great. You get to follow two worlds in this book as they happen side by side, Melina and Evan; normal high school girl and secret agent. Until finally their worlds collide in what is a great show of skill, talent and genius.

The Agent's Daughter is more than a spy story. It is a story about a young teenage girl discovering how to maneuver in the world where nothing is certain. It is about dealing with curveballs and the unknown. The Agent's Daughter was a lot of fun to read. It quenched my thirst for thrill as a spy, gave me the joy of discovering love as a teenager, action and a hearty lesson in physics. If I had one complaint about this book, it's that there wasn't enough action. There was a lot of time spent on the science but that action seeker in me thirsted for more. But it was still a fun book that left me happy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some cool gadgets! 22 Jan 2014
By Debra L. Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Teenager Melina Robert's perfect world is shattered when her Mom is involved in a car accident that leaves her in a coma. Her father Evan retreats into his work, leaving Melina and her brother Travis alone to deal with their own issues about the accident. Evan has more problems - he's an elite spy and he's been lying to his kids about it. Things get more complicated when Evan is nearly killed on a mission and Melina meets a new boy at school.

My favorite part of the book was definitely all the "tools" that the spies used. They were inventive and added much to the storyline. However, I didn't particularly like that everyone in the Robert's family is perfect - Evan is the consummate spy--top of his game, Melina has an unusual aptitude for martial arts and her younger brother Travis is a physics genius. That was unrealistic that everyone was outstanding at something. I did find it refreshing when Melina reverted back to typical teenager behavior when she meets Alex, a boy she likes at school. Overall, the story moves along at a good pace and there are a few surprises along the way, but I did find it too easy to put the book aside. I think YA fans of thrillers will enjoy this, but I don't think it is engaging enough for an adult audience.

I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Agent's Daughter 25 Dec 2013
By Beth H - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The Agent's Daughter was a fun, action adventure for all ages.

Melina was unknowingly groomed to become a spy from a very early age. When a tragic accident leaves her mother in a coma state, Melina's life changes forever. Melina and her father must face a terrible enemy closer to home than they ever imagined. Everything that her father has taught her now comes into play as Melina must fight for her life and the lives of those she loves.

The Agent's Daughter takes us on a fantastic adventure of self discovery, heart ache, budding young romance and intrigue. A charming and dazzle mystery that captivated and entertained me from start to finish.

I received this copy of The Agent's Daughter from Ron Corriveau and Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for a honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for all ages! 4 Aug 2013
By Jillian - books and motherhood - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Ok, so I absolutely LOVED this book!! Like seriously loved it! It is technically a young adult book, but had enough drama and suspense to make me completely 100% interested from the very beginning right to the last page. I even found myself holding my breath a few times!!

I really liked Melina's character. She seemed very much a typical teenager on the outside, but has a strength hidden deep inside her that rivaled some UFC champions (literally and figuratively)!! And it really helped her cope with her mothers condition, as well as made her an excellent person to have around in certain other situations (ahem).

You need to read this book!! And even better, it is a book you can read and enjoy with your teens/tweens!! I know Ron Corriveau is an engineer by trade, but I think he has found his second calling! I would DEFINITELY read another one of his books. This one could easily turn into a series and become the next "Nancy Drew"!! (Did I just seriously date myself by that last comment?!)
4.0 out of 5 stars The YA disclaimer means what it says! 15 July 2014
By Patricia Austin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book really is for teens. The style is simplified and the "does he like me?" girl/boy issue gets more space than it deserves given that the presentation is unoriginal. We are told that Malina is fearless, thinks on her feet and is "agent" (spy) material. But when we meet her she is trying to cover up for having lost the book she was supposed to read for class...and doing a very poor job of it.
We then get a glimpse into what Melina's father, Evan, really does for a living and are given a chance to wonder why Evan ever thought of grooming Malia for espionage work when he's afraid to let her out of his sight.
Then, of course, things heat up in the second half of the book and we learn that Melina really is all that her dad believes her to be.
The yarn is a good one, albeit a tad too simplified with some things skipped over....e.g.: if there are 16,000 ways to signal that an agent needs help, how come no one was looking??? And how come no one noticed anything unusual about Melina's mom's coma??? For a bunch of elite spies, they really screwed up!
