I got hold of a preview copy of the book and thought I'd share my views on it.

This book isn't just Muchamore turned up to 11. The whole series is completely tuned in to what the younger generation wants to read, it seems that Muchamore has managed to capture it in a book so fast paced and adrenalin filled that once you've started reading, you won't want to stop.

I won't tell you too much about the plot however as per usual with a CHERUB book you have just more than one storyline to keep you the story thrilling and the book sees many of the main characters grow up, as well as some of the background details be built up helping you gain a real sense of the CHERUB world.

For the first time we see a gadgets master in the book, although he isn't supplying the agents with gameboys crammed with a smoke bomb and bug finder. Knives, miniature guns and nanotube fabric are the order of the day - this is certainly not Alex Rider. We're no longer talking of kids who can't handle weapons and who certainly can't get injured of hurt.

Mad Dogs is certainly brilliantly crafted and is a superb read. It could be quite controversial as some aspects of the book are more adult than child, however any fan of the series and new readers alike will love the book for what it is.

A true five star read!

Because Robert Muchamore's language is simple and clear, reviewers tend to ignore him. But his writing always puts you firmly in a place and time. Without resorting to long descriptive passages he makes you taste, hear, smell, feel and especially see what's going on around. And what a lot happens! In this book about rival gang wars in Luton, (no false glamour with Muchamore), there is a real sense of danger. The two things I like most about Muchamore's books, apart from the clarity of writing, are that his stories feels absolutely real, and that you never know what's going to happen next. I also like the strong sub-plot about 15 year old James' growing maturity.

I enjoyed reading this series. Each book was very well written. A really interesting concept. Lots of action in each book and we also get to know all of the main characters really well.. .

If you haven't read the Henderson's Boys books - which tells us how CHERUB came into being - then I suggest you really do. Again an excellent series of books, as long as you can forgive some basic mistakes which with proper research would have made a good series into a great series.

Since buying the first book of the CHERUB series, ive absolutely fell in love with it!
Muchamores writing is exciting and well paced and you are bored. Indeed, when i put the book down in order to go out, i would often think about how much i wanted to come back and read it.

Whereas i've found the CHERUB books to drop in style during the middle of the series, this book is certainly one of the best of the series, along with The Recruit and Class A.

A must read for teens and adults alike- you'd be mad not to read it!

Muchamore's CHERUB series has always produced books that teens can relate with, and that can either be read and enjoyed,or read into and truly understood.

Mad Dogs is the best in a long line of fabulous literature and I have no doubt that this is not yet the best to come.

This edition features much of the gritty realism we have come to love and whereas some people would prefer to wonder about traction engine yoyos, with nanotube carbonfibre impregnated clothing and sub-compact handguns as deal of the day, it is clear that this authour has done his homework.

We look forward to more of your work Rob.

Yours,

Format: Paperback
The two biggest rivals to the Alex Rider series are this Cherub series and the Jimmy Coates series by Joe Craig. Cherub started off in amazing style with The Recruit and has continued to be pure class, but has never quite reached the heights of that first book.

While staying true to its grittier roots, it has lost some of the excitement because there's a limit to what real kids can practically do.

In contrast, Alex Rider became more and more ridiculous, while the Jimmy Coates series has improved with every book by striking a balance between a real life setting and more outrageous and daring action sequences.

Mad Dogs is definitely a great read, but it's good to have all these amazing books to read and to compare the different styles. If you haven't checked out any Cherub yet you should, along with Alex Rider and Jimmy Coates. (But start with the Recruit.)
