I really really liked this book as it had a lot of action as well as mystery and suspense. There was also a few unexpected plot twists as well ! It almost felt that the whole world was over when his mum died, sister (Lauren) taken away by evil step dad Ron and James (main character) was getting in trouble with the police! But then came Cherub !…
My favorite part was when James had to do a survival course in Malaysia !
The mission he had was very intriguing as well !
I love the idea of kids going on missions instead of adults, especially as kids are said to be the most ‘vulnerable’ and ‘weakest’ and there they are fighting against the worlds top criminals !

I think this is a really good start to the series and really love the idea of teenagers handling out agency tasks all the while the author tries his best to make t seem realistic giving out explanations and overall I really like the bond they’ve established between the characters, I totally recommend this
