CHILDREN'S book of the week.
NEW GUARD BY ROBERT MUCHAMORE HODDER CHILDREN'S BOOKS, PS12.99 AFTER 12 years, the final in the award-winning Cherub series has arrived.
In New Guard, original CHERUB James Adams is now a mission controller and trains up the 'new guard' fronted by the brilliant 17-year-old Ryan Sharma.
Ryan and James assemble a legendary team of CHERUB agents, old and new, to succeed in their final mission - to bring two hostages home alive.
But what do you do when there are Islamic state-controlled checkpoints between you and the Syrian/Turkish border? The absolute rule: CHERUB agents are never put in danger unless the mission can't be performed by an adult.
This final instalment has got everything fans have come to expect from the series: a gripping read, good plot and characters and lots of action.
The appearance of characters from the early books is a bonus for those who have grown up with CHERUB.
