Review: The Fall by Robert Muchamore


Title: The Fall

Author: Robert Muchamore

Series: Cherub #7

Publisher: Hodder

Publication date: 15 Mar 2007

Format: Paperback | 352 pages

Genre: YA




  When an MI5 operation goes disastrously wrong, James Adams needs all of his skills to get out of Russia alive.

Meanwhile, his sister Lauren is on her first solo mission, trying to uncover a brutal human-trafficking operation.

And when James does get home, he finds that his nightmare is just beginning…

My thoughts:

I don't really have much to say about this read apart from 'I loved it'.

If you've read my reviews of the other books in the series, you'll realise I'm mostly just repeating myself most of the time now. I'm a big fan of this series so far, and part of the reason why is that this author has managed to keep the same great characters, amazing action and some hilarious moments running throughout all of the books in the series. The one and only thing that changes every time is the plot.

This plot was a lot more focused on James and Lauren rather than other characters. There wasn't anything at all on what missions the others were on so it was a great book for getting to know more about James and Lauren both individually, and their relationship as siblings. I thought the plot was a whole lot more intense than past books have ever been. There was an element of suspense where James is fearful of being kicked out of Cherub and Lauren is fighting to free girls from a trafficking operation. 


Overall this is a great read and as usual, it only makes me look forward to the next book more, especially with what James did towards the end the little idiot.


My rating: 8/10
