After finishing one series last week in the Reckoners and again this week with the Lorien Legacies and I want to see if I can keep this run going. As you could probably tell by the title the next series I am hoping to finish in next week is the Aramov series by Robert Muchamore. I have just finished the second to last book in the series so it is time for a review.
Fay has spent eighteen months locked up in a Secure Training Centre. Drug deals and rip-offs are the only things this teenager knows. Now she’s back on the street, looking to settle old scores.
CHERUB agents Ryan and Ning need Fay’s knowledge to unearth a major drug importer. They’re trained professionals with one essential advantage: even experienced criminals never suspect that children are spying on them.
But Fay’s made a lot of enemies and she’s running out of time …
For official purposes, these children do not exist.
Taken from Goodreads
This book follows a different mission from the last 3 books but it still follows the same main character in Ryan as he is working with Ning in order to try and bring down one of the biggest drug dealers in London. This book feels different from the first 3 but it is a good different, I’m glad the author was able to bring out another two books but instead of making the same mission drag on longer than necessary (I thought three books was the perfect amount) he decided on keeping the same main characters and instead sending them on a totally different mission where everything is going to be fresh for the reader making for an overall more enjoyable read.
If you have followed my blog for a long time then you will of seen that I have reviewed all 12 books of the first cherub series and they were also my first reviews on the blog. So you could probably tell that I am a big fan of Robert muchamores work. So I am even happier to say that the writing in this book is amazing and I literally couldn’t put it down. After waiting a few hours after writing my review for united as one I started this book and the next day I am writing the review for it. I was gripped from the start and if it wasn’t for a pesky thing called sleep I could of easily of finished it in one sitting.
The story was action packed right from the beginning and after the first couple of chapters I knew that I wouldn’t be able to put my kindle down. I do like the idea of some characters from the old series coming back and idea that james is now a mission controller is great addition to the book but I think it is even better when the focus is on the new characters for this series as it can help show how good a writer Robert Muchamore is.
Overall this book is great and is a great addition to a series I have fallen in love with and a little bit sad knowing that the next book is going to be the last ever cherub book that Robert Muchamore is going to write. So lets all hope he makes it a great one.
