Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6 Up—This sequel to The Lab (Scholastic, 2008) is set sometime in the future when there are no more countries, only corporations. Agent Six of Hearts Six, 16, and his twin brother, Kyntak, work for The Deck and must fight the evil ChaoSonic corporation. The hierarchy of "The Deck" has Queens, Kings, and Jokers; the weapons are futuristic conglomerates; the characters are sometimes clones or cyborglike; and the action pings at a quick and somewhat violent pace, which makes the whole book mimic elements of a video game. Kyntak has been kidnapped, and it is up to Six to rescue him. He gets to use really cool weapons and show off his superhuman abilities as he scales walls and makes mind-boggling leaps and wins battles even though he is vastly outnumbered. Along the way, he learns new information about his evil father and other siblings, and he is forced to question his own morality and motives. Readers never forget that he is not human, but the knowledge that he will never be able to lead a normal human life does not diminish his appeal. While this plot is a little less compelling, fans of Anthony Horwitz's "Alex Rider" series and Charlie Higson's "Young Bond" series (Hyperion/Miramax) will want to pick up this superagent adventure with a sci-fi gaming twist.—Jake Pettit, Thompson Valley High School, Loveland, CO

    THE BEST SEQUEL EVER

    This book is truly thrilling. It makes u imagine and think about how Agent 6 could do any of this. And it makes you want to be him as well.

    Reviewed by Sally Kruger aka "Readingjunky" for Teens Read Too

    "The first thing he saw was a soldier with a megaphone leaning through the second-floor window of one of the buildings; the second was the sixteen snipers aiming at him from the windows all around." Events like the one above are fairly commonplace for Agent Six in REMOTE CONTROL, the sequel to Jack Heath's THE LAB. It is filled with heart-stopping images just like it. The world is still controlled by ChaoSonic, and Six is still struggling to survive as he battles evil without the use of deadly force. This time his identical twin is kidnapped by a new villain named Vanish. Vanish mistakenly believes he has kidnapped Six and is asking for a ransom - or the teen will be killed. As Six begins the Mission to rescue his brother, he encounters a new individual, a mysterious girl. She keeps herself hidden but offers survival advice, which Six finds quite confusing but useful if he is able to unlock the cryptic clues. Adding difficulty to his mission is the fact that the Deck has been compromised, leaving Six completely on his own. With no one to trust, he must keep track of everyone and can't rely on anyone. Readers looking for non-stop action, violence, and intrigue should pick up a copy of REMOTE CONTROL as soon as possible. Jack Heath has a real knack for creating 007-type gadgets backed by spy-thriller adventures, and Agent Six's superhuman skills are sure to please.

    A book to be remembered.

    I always was in to spy books and this one tops the list. Meet agent six of Hearts a genetical enginered super soldier developed by a corrupt goverment. Now that he escaped the orginazation and is 16 he will do more than his part to take down that orginazation. Now that he works for the Deck (A secret orginazation Chaosonic doesnt now about) he goes undercover to take down Chaosonic and more importantly the lab the enginered him.

    I love this book. The first one rocked, but...

    I love this book. The first one rocked, but it was basically one action scene to the next. The story developed a bit later. Here, the action pulls the story forward. It's basically a story where an innocent hero is being chased, where you would think it's cliche'. It's not. The story is well paced and complex. How it's executed is the amazing part. The details are amazingly vivid. Good for teens 13 and over.

    I Also Recommend:

    As good as the first book

    ...if not even better.

    In the second book, Six and his comrades confront much more dangerous and sinister villains. When worse comes to worst, Kyntak is kidnapped by an anonymous organization, the Deck suspects Six of being a double agent, danger and mystery ensues one another. The plot promises action-packed and intriguing scenarios. Even with rich details, the writing flows really fast and engages me from the beginning. Also, you'll get to see Six's and Kyntak's character development which make them more appealing. Overall, I think the book is a good read if you enjoy action fiction fueled with detective elements.
