    Book Review Shadow Wave
    The book Shadow Wave is a popular title among teen readers. The author of the book is Robert Muchamore who has written many books for teens revolving around the idea of kids or teens being used as spies and secret agents to take down and capture criminals that adult agents can’t get to. This concept comes from the idea that kids are seen as innocent; no one would expect that the kid next door is a highly trained secret agent who is spying on you. Robert Muchamore has written two series of books where normal everyday teens find themselves assisting in taking down dangerous villains and criminals; the series are Cherub, Henderson Boy’s.
    The book Shadow Wave is the final book in the Cherub series and follows the main character James Adams as he approaches the end of his career as a Cherub agent. After arriving back at cherub campus from his most recent mission James begins to plan his future when his career at Cherub ends, but when James’ best friend, and former Cherub agent Kyle Blueman returns for a visit James makes a discovery about the man he’ll be protecting on his newest mission. After Kyle tells James the truth and proposes his own plans James faces a difficult choice. Will he be loyal to Cherub? The agency that took him in and set him on the path to a better and more adventurous life. Or Kyle? His first friend at Cherub campus and the first real friend he’s ever had? 
    James’ struggle to come to terms with the end of his Cherub career approaching is a significant factor in the book. As James begins to realize he is approaching his final days at Cherub he begins to feel some of the same emotions as seniors graduating high school begin to feel. James feels nervous about leaving Cherub; worried that he won’t be able to adjust to normal life after living as a Cherub agent for several years. He feels sad at the prospect of not being able to spend time with his friends and sister that will still be Cherub agents for a few more years. The author seems to be trying to convey the message that going out into the world after being taken care of for years it can be a little scary when you have to take care of yourself.
    Shadow Wave is a good book but as a finale to a series felt a bit underwhelming. Readers might find themselves less interested in the plot and more interested in the protagonist’s personal life. Half the book is spent in a flash back giving us insight to Kyle’s motives. Although it seemed to drag on for a bit longer than it need to and I readers may begin to lose interest. Also when it came time for James to make his decision on whom to trust the decision is made very abruptly and James doesn’t hesitate when making his choice. The plot seemed to lack some tension, as if there wasn’t very much at risk. Shadow Wave could’ve been made a bit longer so that there could be some more time to add weight to the book to make it more suspenseful and make the plot seem as if there was a real risk that came with James decision.
    Shadow Wave should be recommended to teens that enjoy a story with spies and secret agents. Before someone read this book they should expect to see a lot of British slang that may be unfamiliar to them so that they won’t be surprised when they come across it.

    Amazing, but not suitable for young readers around the age of 10 and under.

    Great book, thriller till the end!
