It has been some time since my review of The Recruit but I still remember every part of it so thought it was time to move onto the next book in the series. Anyway, it is time for a review.
Drugs, cars and guns!
Keith Moore is Europe’s biggest cocaine dealer. The police have been trying to get enough evidence to nail him for more than twenty years.
Now, four CHERUB agents are joining the hunt. Can a group of kids successfully infiltrate Keith Moore’s organisation when dozens of attempts by undercover police officers have failed?
James Adams must start at the bottom, making deliveries for small time drug dealers and getting to know the dangerous underworld they inhabit. He needs to make a big splash if he’s going to win the confidence of the man at the top
Taken from goodreads
From the off you notice that compared to the first book in the series this one is going to be full of more action, drugs and violence which is not something you normally expect for a YA book but it does mean that I personally loved reading every second of it and couldn’t put it down.as I just found myself wanting more and more of what Robert Muchamore was writing.
From the first to the end of the second book James has really grown up as a character as he starts to make less rash decisions and actually starts to care if he has hurt someone feelings. For me in a big book series like this then this sort of character development is huge as it means that it is not just going to be the same sort of characters throughout the series in fact it means you could go from loving one character in one book but two books later hate them for the way they change.
My favourite feature of this series of books is the final two pages of the book as it gives you a little bit of information of what happened to some of the side characters as well as some of the lesser known ones which means it leaves a nice feeling inside of yourself as you now know everything you could possibly want.
