Secret Army by Robert Muchamore Review

This is the third book in the series and as soon as I finished Eagle Day I had to get into the third book as I wanted to know more about the group and how they were going to cope. Anyway, it is time for a review.


The Story

Britain, 1941. The government is building a secret army of intelligence agents to work undercover, gathering information and planning sabotage operations. Henderson’s boys are part of that network: kids cut adrift by the war, training for the fight of their lives. They’ll have to parachute into unknown territory, travel cross-country and outsmart a bunch of adults in a daredevil exercise.
In wartime Britain, anything goes.

My Opinion

If you have read the CHERUB series then you will know about the 100 days of training that each recruit has got to go through before they can be classed as an agent, well this book introduces this and shows exactly why it is needed. We see the boys and Rosie go through tough training and can see in themselves the change that the training has done for them, especially for Paul. I enjoyed reading about this as it was different to see how it had all started off and what the children needed to do to become good enough to become an agent.

We get a lot more points of view in this book which is a welcoming change, in the first two we only ever really got Marc and maybe Pauls and Rosie’s depending on the situation. In this one we get 4 different points of view which is nice to have as it means we get to find out more about the children’s life and how they are coping both mentally and physically with the situations that they are in. The points of view that we get are Marc’s, Paul’s, Luc’s and one of the new recruits and it is just great to get to read about some of the new characters that have been introduced as well as get to see how the old one are getting along.

The way that Robert Muchamore has written this book it makes you not want to put it down as it is just that good. With the addition of the new characters and being able to see how the group is being trained to get ready for their first mission everything is exciting for the reader as we get to know how our favourite characters are going to cope with the new challenges that are going to be ahead.

If you haven’t started reading this series yet then trust me when I say give it a go as I am sure that you are going to love every single second of it just like I did.
