Avenger (Boy Soldier, book 3) by Andy McNab and Robert Rigby
He devotes the rest of his life to avenging his son. I think that this book was written for an older audience. It has some pretty bad things written into the book.
I would NOT recommend this book for younger children as it may give the children bad thoughts or ideas. Title The title of this book is a one word summary of the book. So yes the title does match the book well, and if I had the chance to change it then I would just keep it the same.
Introduction Yes actually the author provides backgrounds of all the main characters in the book. It provides where the Characters are from and what has happened to them. The author even gives us their age and their height.
The author even gives us a physical description of the characters. They affect the story because they are the main characters. These aveger the characters that the book follows throughout its entirety.
The book is telling these characters stories. These characters are the protagonists. Theme The theme of this book is very effective.
The theme just shows the kind of situation the characters are in. It gives you avrnger feeling of what the characters are going through.
Mcnav theme helps you to understand what the setting is in the book. The theme of the book gives you what kind of feelings you should have while reading it. The book starts off a little slow but the further you get into it the better it gets. The further you read the more action packed it gets.
The characters seem like they match the overall tone and story of the book perfectly. Most everything in this book is spot on. I would give this book a 3 out of 5 stars rating. Jul 14, Khadija Zahra rated it it was amazing. It was such a freaking great series but this book ended so horribly that I cannot even think about picking up the next one. It took me over two hours to calm myself down but overall I loved it and hated it too.
This seems like the most controversial review ever! Jun 08, Morgan J rated it really liked it. The book is exiting and good to read however it’s quite hard to understand some certain words It was a OK read. Nov 06, Nicola rated it did not like it Shelves: To even reach this point in the story requires massive leaps of suspension-of-disbelief. Crucially missing from the story, of course, is any discussion of fundamentalist religion, which is the real reason that kids around the world are blowing themselves up.
In Avengerthe kids in question are just sad, angry and misunderstood. Although only published a couple of years ago, the technology references already feel dated. An iPod Shuffle is referred to as the smallest music player available, when everybody knows that a it is designed to be used in conjunction with an iPod, not separately, and b byit had already be ousted by the iPod Nano.
The descriptions of New York City could have been written by anyone who had only ever seen a postcard of the place, and the attempts by the authors to mimic an American accent are cringeworthy at best. I suppose the most complimentary thing I can say about Avenger is: I finished reading it. So there we are. Oct 13, Catie rated it liked it Shelves: In this book, Danny, Fergus and friend Elena are trying to track a terrorist.
This terrorist has been recruiting teens to act as suicide bombers all over the world, and now Elena has managed to contact him.

M the British version of the FBI is not particularly happy with them after their previous run-ins with the law, so if they all want to come out alive, they have to watch their backs.
Add in some explosives, some spy talk and training, and the Watts family independent streak and you have a very realistic teen spy novel. I enjoyed this book after I got into it.
As it stands, however, this may be the best spy book I have read for kids. One of the co-authors is Andy McNab, who is a legit and highly decorated soldier in the British Armed Forces so much so that his picture is in shadow on the back cover. The spy language used is both distinctly British and to me seems authentic abdy, and the situation is well-written—even I did not see that last bit coming. So this is a book that would appeal to boys and is completely free of sex and alcohol, who knew?
Definitely a book to recommend to older readers, who can grasp the politics and handle the violence—and who will not try to make a bomb with this book as a guide. Jul 11, Kahurangi Morehu rated it it was amazing. When Danny, Elena and Mcnah go on a special assignment to take down an evil tech mastermind. The tech mastermind named himself Black Star.
He has been leading worldwide teenager bomb threats and thinks he will never get caught. I liked this book because it was action packed and there were many things that were exciting in it such as bombings, people shooting each other and how they planed their moves.
I really like these sorts of books because I enjoy reading about war and how they end up finding the bad guy. There were no parts in this story that I did not enjoy because every page had something new for me to read.
My favourite character was the bad guy Black Star because he had a lot of awesome moves that he done on Danny, Devereaux and Fergus that they did not understand. He also knew what he was doing because he had done it many times before. Devereaux thought that she could find a tech mastermind as good as Black Star, but they were all just too amateur for him. All in all I enjoyed reading this book and I recommend that you read it.
Jan 20, Malcolm rated it liked it. This book has many elements reraders will recognise from McNab’s books for an older audience: McNab is, however joined in this venture by Robert Rigby, who is careful to establish his credentials as a serious writer with an established reputation and not a gho Andy McNab writing for the Young Adult market, who read Robert Muchamore and Anthony Horowitz novels.

Boy Soldier Series
The principle seems mcjab be the same as James Patterson, McNab writes the plot outline and Rigby does the tedious stuff of bringing the bare bones to life. It is a well crafted thriller, the plot builds up to a climax as the MI5 agents close in on the villain.
Will her friends be able to save the young undercover agent especially since the reader knows the villain is aware he is close to being stopped in his activities.
The main weakness in the story is the villain’s motivation.
