Once again Muchamore draws us into an amazing storyline, and sadly for the last time in this series. Having read all of his other books, I'm a bit tearful at the end of this book, the final Henderson's Boys.

Was very good only criticism would be that it sometimes felt like series of events and not an overall story. The ending was the best part as you found out what happened to each character

I will dearly miss this series. The ending was okay but I feel it was a rushed ending. It was also sad what happened during the book.

The henderson's Boys books were the first of the CHERUB books that i read. I was riveted from start to finish. However there are some obvious mistakes in the series which could have been avoided by some research:
Just as an instance:-
In the earlier books SS?Gestapo officers were given military not SS ranks (happily in the later books this was rectified)
In one book we had a captain, in army uniform visiting the establishment. An army captain is lower in rank than a naval commander, so would not have been called sir or saluted first by Henderson.
.The sergeant who was in charge of parachute training was called sir by a lot of people. NO! Maybe the 'kids' would have called him sir but anyone else would have addressed him as sergeant, sarge or sar'nt.
The sergeant who trained the 'kids' as snipers was referred to as an Air Force sergeant. He would have been an Army Air Force sergeant.

Little details but as I said - a little research would have avoided this.

I was not keen on the many references to thrashings and to even suggest that Henderson would have authorised a 'birching' of one boy by another just a short time before a mission is kind of ridiculous. The only related issue that I found slightly amusing was when Marc was caned on his bare backside by a tiny nun for fighting.

All in all, though, I really enjoyed the whole HB series, and was sorry when there were no more to read.. .

Although this series of books and The Cherub series, are aimed at senior school children, my son started reading them age 10 (although he was no allowed to take them into school due to the hard hitting content). He had not been very interested in reading at all prior to this as he found the stories offered to his age-group mundane, probably because he had been listening to far more complex stories being read to him by myself and audio books.
These stories raised many difficult topics and I needed to spend time discussing such things as drug dealing, human trafficking, prostitution and abuse, but now (age 15) my son is a keen journalist; already getting work published in local papers, and intends to do politics and sociology A Levels next year. I am very grateful to Robert Muchamore for writing these books. We pre-ordered this one of course. My son starts the series from the beginning every time a new book is released so that he can immerse himself in the whole story every time. This is his favourite author.

This is defiantly the best book Robert has written yet!
There is tons of excitement and adventure. If you've read the series then a few people have died.(but I'm
not going to tell you who.)
I would recommend this book to teenagers from 13 to 19
There is some violence and some sex but it is mostly fine
