This book was great. If I could give it six stars I would. The characters are well developed and the plot is extremely interesting. This book is the best action/spy book I have ever read. It is a page turner that keeps you interested and guessing throughout the whole book.
A great book! I like that its not cheezy and un-realistic like most books like this one. I'd recommend to anyone who likes fast paced stories with unexpected twists in them
This book was just what I was looking for after finishing the Alex Rider series. It has the same action and excitement. This book was really great.
I didn't once want to put the book down (probably why i'm so tired). The book is excellently written and is a great combination of action and suspense. Twists in the story appear just as you think things have started to settle, pulling you further into the story, stopping you from putting the book down. Everything about the story is so well thought out you'd think you were part of the story.
I absolutely loved this book and can't wait to read the sequel; Assassin.

In the course of reading this novel, there was an extremely descriptive and informational storyline that kept me wanting to read more and more for hours on end. There were several hidden plots that were revealed at the perfect times, making me scratch my head thinking why I didn't make the connection earlier... Simply genius planning and story writing!
As I have just finished the first book in "The Billionaire Series", I am extremely eager to start reading the second book shortly and find out what else Mr. McDonald has in store for me!
I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading about extreme wealth and an intense travel and chase around the world... Including tons of action, suspense and mystery!

This is not a just a kids book, although if you have them then you would be well advised to put this under their nose - just don't be surprised when they start expecting jumbo jets as Christmas presents!
The story and the premise is a little unrealistic and as the book is primarily in the young fiction genre this isn't a surprise. I think its important the we not forget what fiction is about - escapism and entertainment and in these areas this book delivers by the truck load!
If you can get past the whole, richest boy in the world who happens to have an adopted sister, who happens to be part of a secret tribe, who happen to be the deadliest fighters n the world then the book is a total joy. One of the elements I like about it is that the kids appreciate the importance of study, their smart and like being smart and are not ashamed of it. What more could you ask children to aspire to. Another interesting angle is that the boy relies on his sister as the "brawn", we are lead to believe she is basically capable of beating up anyone on the planet yet acts with restraint and merely defends those that need defending.
Although primarily an action book this has a lot about being a good person and even touches on the notion of a social conscious. As someone who struggled with reading as a teenager I read this book wishing it had been around when I needed it. Getting kids/teens to read is purely and solely about entertaining them and this is a winner in this field.
Oh and at the price it's a steal!
The plot itself is very good and would make a really good adult book. Some things are very farfetched in this book but being for kids then thats not too bad.
However, I did get very annoyed with it about 3/4 through when every paragraph for about 10 pages switched to a different location and it got very confusing.
Otherwise a pretty good book, with a lot of things I like, such as aircraft, guns and people beating up neds!)
