Format: Paperback
This book is written by-the ex-SAS member-Chris Ryan for children. It is a vision of every kid’s dream, a group of best friends fighting the “Bad guys”.
The team of five go on a training holiday to learn how to dive. However while away they uncover evidence, this evidence proves that a mining company is dumping toxic cyanide. When the company kills a scientist that has befriended them, it turns to a revenge mission.
The five kids go after the mining corporation, while using their specialist skills they fight with a vengeance. However when one of the team is captured the team is thrown in the deep end.
This-albeit short-story is a great adventure tale that everybody will enjoy. Li uses Karate, Hex uses his computer hacking skills, Paulo drives, Amber translates and Alex helps everyone survive.
It’s GREAT!

This book is action-packed and exciting from beginning to end. I've found all Chris Ryan's young adult books to be enthralling and this one does not disappoint. The five members of Alpha Force are carrying out a study on seals in the arctic while also helping an environmentalist collect samples. They return from their last survey to find their friend murdered and themselves now a target.

The team have to keep themselves safe while trying to stop a crooked businessman from dumping toxic waste which is damaging, not only the environment, but also the people from a nearby village. One member of the team is badly injured, another taken prisoner. In a race against time they must battle the elements and the ruthless workers who will stop at nothing to keep their profits rolling in.

An excellent read

This book is amazing. I would rate it 10/10 because it is an action thriller with an adventurous plot. I would recommend this to everyone because it epic and I can't wait to read the next one. The best bit was probably when Ice saved Amber's life and the funniest bit was when Daniel Usher got exposed on national tv.

Bought the first three of the series for my nephew's 11th birthday. He loves them. I even got a 'thankyou' phone call- miracle! My brother tells me he can't put them down.
