Have you ever been so mesmerized by something so impeccable? If not you should certainly read the C.H.E.R.U.B. series. Rob Muchamore has done an awesome job of making his plots absolutely phenomenal. I’ve become addicted to the conflict in this particular story. From high speed chases to daring romance between Protagonist James and his lovely companion Nicole. And I can’t seem to set down this immaculate novel. And although this book seems to have made no societal impact it still continues to remain a fast read that is fantastic for all ages. In my own personal way this book is considered a classic.

The exposition begins with a troublesome child our protagonist James in a world of trouble. James is faced with tons of conflict particularly that foreshadows situations in the future; situations that normally occur on Cherub missions. And normal this is the portion of the book that tends to contain the majority of the action. But this poses a problem when reading the Cherub series because the author rarely slows down the action enough for the reader to understand that they are approaching the climax.

I personally believe that if the climax was better written this story would be more than spectacular. Although I do recommend books one and two because book three begins slow and it may make one not want to read it.  But aside from this flaw this story is indeed a classic. The dialogue, the character development, the conflict, is truly impeccable. This book has not only entertained me but brought me more intense joy from reading.
