In a nutshell: Cherub, signing off in a blaze of glory

In the final book in his hugely popular series, Robert Muchamore reunites some favourite characters from previous books: James Adams, original Cherub lead, is back, and heading up a mission deep into ISIS territory in Syria - as ever the story is thoroughly contemporary.

Fans will be deservedly disappointed that this is the last in this series, but Muchamore signs the series off with exactly the sort of bang they’ve come to expect.
