Meyer has combined the genres of horror and romance to produce Twilight, an absolute page turner that is anything but your typical vampire novel. Loose yourself in this fabulous story about a special girl called Bella, who moves to the dreary town of Forks to live with her father. And that’s where ‘normal’ ends. Forget what you thought you knew about vampires and let Meyer open up a whole new world, with fantastic characters such as Edward, the male lead, who forms an unnatural and unsafe connection to Bella. The best part is, this is book number one of four. Harry Potter, move over. 10/10
After loosing his mother, James is separated from his sister Lauren, and sent to Nebraska House (a home for boys). But little does he know, he is being kept under close surveillance by CHERUB, a British intelligence for kids. There he is offered a position, which involves 100 days of intense training and the completion of various tests. Will he be up to it, or will something stop him dead in his tracks?
This was a great novel and I recommend it to anybody who’s looking for a bit of action: especially teenagers. It is an excellent read and I was glued to it the whole way through. I rate it 10 out of 10. If you loved Storm breaker you’ll love this. I think I’ll even give the second one ago. My full praise to Robert Muchamore.
