Considering this is James Adams' swan song, you would think he would feature more of in the book. The plot seems more to do with Kyle and James is only slightly involved in the first and last parts of the book. A good read but not the kind of plot I thought Robert Muchamore should have finished on.

This rating was appropriate because the book is a very engaging thriller stretching the imagination of young little boys like my son

*SPOILER ALERT*

I have always enjoyed the CHERUB series, despite the books going downhill in the last few. However, I was expecting a lot from Shadow Wave. However, there is no big mission to end on, and half the book is spent telling you the story of Kyle, not James. There was the question posed before it was released "Will James Adams survive?" but there was never any real tension in the book and James was never really in a life or death situation. What's more, the blurb seemed to indicate a tough moral decision for James whether to side with Kyle or CHERUB, but the decision was easy and was made without a second thought, seemingly.

In short, the book lacked a mission and enough time on James, the supposed main character of the stories. It was nice having some of the reminiscing about earlier events, but this could not make up for what is a very lacklustre book which failed to deliver a satisfying conclusion to James Adams's story.

Read it if you wish to complete the series, but do not expect much at all.

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.

I have been obsessed with the cherub series since I got the first book. When I got this on my kindly I couldn't help but feel disappointed. It was quite dull and the interesting parts main character James played no part in. When I read the bad reviews I thought it's cherub it can be that bad but bluntly it was.
