Firstly if you’ve read Alex Rider or H.I.V.E. but you haven’t read The recruit WHAT THE HELL HAVE YOU BEEN DOING WITH YOUR READING LIFE!?!?! Sorry what I mean is HAVE YOU EVEN BEEN LOOKING?! I’m an action adventure, spy and danger, mystery type of reader so I’m telling you now, The Recruit is the start of an amazing series of events! Now to give you an idea of what the book is about, there is a young teenage boy with a murderer for a mum. He’s very good at maths but sucks at everything else and somehow finds himself being recruited into CHERUB. CHERUB is an agency that stop murders to save lives – with children! He must survive his interview into CHERUB. But will it go as easy as he think it will? Trust me on this one though, its an amazing book of many!
