Bought this for my 11 year old (year 6) son who is an avid reader and who had just reached the end of the Artemis Fowl books available and wanted something 'like the Bourne Identity film but for kids' with a hero that is not an adult (ie someone he can relate to)He had also enjoyed the Alex Rider series by Anthony Horowitz which has a similar level of being a thriller but not too dark. I haven't read it myself of course, but he has loved it and is enjoying the whole series, can't put them down!!
Those who have read the first two and enjoyed them wont be disappointed by this new installment. It has a lot of pace and great plot. I really enjoyed how the characters developed and of course absolutely loved all the action. I found myself screaming at the book towards the end, desperate to find out what happened. It's very well written and I just can't wait for the fourth!
I like assassins. Would recommend this to all other 13 - 16 year olds Only problem is that he is called jimmy, why would you name an amazing assassin jimmy. What about Sabre or Blade ah well it's your choice
After I finished the second book I was left desperately waiting for the third and I wasn't dissapointed. The plot flies along at a brilliant pace and it was good to see how the characters developed. The action, of course, was brilliant and I LOVED it. Every page makes you wan't to read more, More, MORE, and I just couldn't put it down. Sabotage, the fourth book, looks every bit as good as the other books in the series so Jimmy Coates fans watch out.
