    This is the last adventure for James Adams in the cherub series. Spoiler Free :) Robert Muchamore sticks to his tried and true formula for this book, and it does not disappoint. The story is more or less a carry-on from the previous book Brigands M.C. and ties up most loose ends, however there are two main stories that feature heavily in this book. The first story is that of James Adams and the resolution of the Brigands M.C.

The story is more or less a carry-on from the previous book Brigands M.C. and ties up most loose ends, however there are two main stories that feature heavily in this book. The first story is that of James Adams and the resolution of the Brigands M.C. It involves him returning to the gang to finally send its president to jail. While this story is resolved all nice and neat, it was over shadowed by the story of Kyle Blueman and his antics in Malaysia. Flashbacks were used to tell Kyles story with great results, as his story was by far the most engaging. The fowards and backwars usually puts me off in books, but not this time and it was seamless and not grating or confusing as flashbacks can sometimes be. Great use of a wedding and a surprising twist about Kyle at the end really make this book one of the more enjoyable of the series. One of the only downsides of this book was the fact that the main character was pushed to the sidelines in favour of someone who didn't feature all that much in the last few books in the series. His story may have been the better of the two, but is should not have been at the Spenser of the the main protagonist. The other drawback was the fact that last part of the book explaining what happened to the other Cherub members wasn't the most detailed and probably should not have been in there at all if it were not done properly. But perhaps they will make small appearance in the new Cherub series? Probably not for readers under the age of 12.

    In this - the final instalment of the original Cherub series - we have an epic finale to the long-running series, with a follow-up on the Brigands mission that sees all the loose ends tied up ((view spoiler)[and the Fuhrer finally taken down!

The whole thing was phenomenal, and a brilliant ending to James’s time as a Cherub agent. I am absolutely thrilled with how everything went down, and how many different characters were involved. The plot was dark and gritty and realistic and had just so many elements to it and I’m super pleased. So many throwbacks to old characters and missions (both within the story, and in the following epilogue) and it was just a fantastic read all around. All the stars for this one!

    Shadow Wave is the final novel of the cherub series and in my opinion, a perfect ending for James Adams. The book starts with James back in Devon with the Brigands MC trying to bring down the Furher. I think that it was great to finish the Brigands mission for it was one of the best missions that James have ever done. However, to me the Brigands mission was just a prologue.

And then retired colleague Kyle Blueman comes up with an unofficial mission. I believe that this is a perfect way to finish the series. As James continued on with his Cherub career, he had times when he doubted the ethical part of the mission. It was a very good idea of Robert Muchamore to end the story by James going against cherub and fights to bring the evil (If you wish to call it that way) down. I praise Robert Muchamore for this fantastic spy novels and James Adams will remain as one of my favorite characters.

    Shadow Wave, the final installment of Robert Muchamore’s CHERUB novels, is less impressive than the rest of the series. There were several defining features of Muchamore’s previous pieces that were missing in this one. In this book, James, a seventeen year old agent, meets his retired friend Kyle in a wedding. James's final mission was to protect a corrupt Malaysian governor's family, but Kyle has other ideas. He knows the governor from a previous mission, and creates his own plan along with Shadow Wave, the final installment of Robert Muchamore’s CHERUB novels, is less impressive than the rest of the series.

James's final mission was to protect a corrupt Malaysian governor's family, but Kyle has other ideas. He knows the governor from a previous mission, and creates his own plan along with James and fellow agent Bruce Norris. I felt that many of essential details were missing in the novel, and this led to confusion over some of the characters’ dialogue. When James said that he found a textbook written by his father, there was no reference in the novel or the series as to how he knew his father’s name. Another thing that I didn’t like about this volume was the fact that after starting in present time, it switched back to the past, and then to the present again. The problem with giving the reference to the plot was that there weren’t as many pages that told the actual story in the present. Also, when the book came back to the present tense you had forgotten what was happening before the reference section. As a result of the reference to the past, the story was too rushed. Finally, the actual plot and storyline was not powerful and interesting enough. I felt that Shadow Wave was focusing more on ending the CHERUB series fittingly rather than creating an exciting story that readers would enjoy. Because of this, the series ended well, but the story itself was weak. Overall, Shadow Wave is an appropriate conclusion to the CHERUB books, but lacks the thrill of the previous novels in the series.

    It's James Adams last mission. Now seventeen, James is ready to leave CHERUB and start a new life of his own. But like all good things, James’ CHERUB career must end with a bang and James wants to leave with style.

My hopes for an action packed conclusion and an exiting last mission for James were diminished. The majority of the book wasn’t even written from James’ perspective, leaving me wondering if this book was really worth AU$34.99 of my money. Never the less, I would still recommend reading this book to any CHERUB fan.

    This was an extremely disappointing ending to the James Adams series. Muchamore could have made this final book much more interesting and entertaining but chose to wrap it up as quickly as possible. Most of the book didn't even star the main character and Muchamore spent way too long on the side story. He could have made this book so much more compelling like in Mad Dogs or The General. There wasn't even any character development with James and kept the character acting like a rowdy, horny 15 This was an extremely disappointing ending to the James Adams series.

The ending of the book was also horrible and cliche. I expected much-a-more from series finale but it was an utter disappointment. I regret buying this book.

    If feel like Robert Muchamore has grown tired of the way hi has been writing all the previous CHERUB books and therefore tried to make something different with throwbacks and changing characters here and there. But I believe the old way When there was a mission the head was the original story. I also feel like the load book Should be something more EPIC, but this just feel like something lame and small. But I really liked the final ending to the series.

    This is a really great book, but sadly it is the end of James Adams’ CHERUB career. This book starts with the continuous story from the last series -Brigands M.C. What would James do for his last mission, ‘James must choose between loyalty to CHERUB, and loyalty to his oldest friend’. The story of Kyle’s mission a couple of years ago to how the Governor of Malaysia got killed.

    Shadow Wave (Robert Muchamore) is part of a series, named CHERUB. This series is about an secret organisation (CHERUB) who employ children to catch criminals. This particular book is about the infiltration of Tan Abdullah, who is shown as the prime minister of Malaysia. The story is set in 2012.

A retired agent named Kyle Blueman, who has a tedious history with Abdullah Shadow Wave (Robert Muchamore) is part of a series, named CHERUB. This series is about an secret organisation (CHERUB) who employ children to catch criminals. This particular book is about the infiltration of Tan Abdullah, who is shown as the prime minister of Malaysia. The story is set in 2012. A tsunamis ha recently hit a Malaysian Island .An agent named James Adams is hired to "babysit" Tan Abdullah's children . A retired agent named Kyle Blueman, who has a tedious history with Abdullah himself, creates a plan of his own. He plans to smuggle CHERUB agents into Malaysia, and expose a certain someone to the entire world. I enjoyed reading the book, however I think it is a little bit confusing. There is a lot of history included in the book, which I found slight irrelevant. The story in itself, is really interesting, but is hidden by the additional facts and dialogue. I really enjoyed the conversations between Aizat and Kyle when they recall the tsunami and the wreckage on the island. The author has captured the emotions of Aizat, his misery, defiance towards the constructions, and protectiveness he shows for his family and the rest of the islanders. It really inspired me how he thought selflessly and in fact, he wasn't concerned about his future at all. Also, the plan Kyle made to infiltrate Tan Abdullah, was extremely creative as he used the regulations created by CHERUB without being arrogant about his skill and experiences. I think that is extremely difficult to be the leader of an inexperienced group of people, without treating everyone as servants, especially if you have been in the business for a long time. I feel that you can learn a lot from characters in a book/movie, and I can say that this book has taught me a lot. It taught me how to be selfless, considerate and determined. It also showed me how to argue for your rights without offending anyone, or implicating violent punishments. This book is great for teenagers and young adults. It has elements of mystery, comedy and action. It interacts with the reader, and is easy to relate to. I would definitely recommend this book, and all other CHERUB books for all bookworms.

I have thoroughly enjoyed each and every book of this series. It was lucky that my brother recommended me this series because it has everything I like in a book: it hooks you in right from the start, it's adventurous also it has a little bit of romance. I'm very sad that this book is the last book of the cherub series. My favourite character is James Adam because the books are based on his life before he went to cherub and his life inside. They also talk about all the missions and mischief that happens in cherub. James plays a big part in Shadow Wave because he has to decide wether he turns on his oldest friend Kyle or betray Cherub which has been his home ever since his mother died. James chose to quit the mission for Cherub so he could help Kyle save the victims and their homes which were destroyed by a tsunami. The governor of the island Tan Abdullah doesn't care about rebuilding new homes for the village people he just wants to clear the land and make it in to luxurious hotels. My favourite quote from this book is: " Mentioning violence to Bruce was like mentioning chocolate sauce to a six-year-old." It's my favourite quote because I like how Robert Muchamore displays Bruce's passion for violence and compares it to a six-year-olds love of chocolate sauce. This quote represents that Bruce enjoys hearing about his and other people's fights because he is a fight fanatic. The thing I learn't from this book is that friendship is really important no matter what. It's hard to chose between friends and work but friends will always be there for you no matter what happens.

    James is seventeen now and it's only a matter of time before he retires as a CHERUB agent. This book takes on a slightly different format to the previous ones which mostly start out with a training exercise and then go onto the main mission. Shadow wave can generally be split into three parts. The first third starts off with James finishing up his previous mission with the Brigands Motorcycle Club before returning to the CHERUB campus.

Shadow wave can generally be split into three parts. The first third starts off with James finishing up his previous mission with the Brigands Motorcycle Club before returning to the CHERUB campus. A lot of previous characters return for a reunion of sorts and James finds out from his best friend, Kyle, that the last mission he is set to go on isn't quite what it seems. This lead to a fairly long flashback section in the middle of the book - of a previous mission of Kyle's - that sets up the rest of the book. The main thing I noticed about this book was that a lot of it wasn't centred around James. There's so many great characters in these books so it was good to see sections from the point of view of some of the other characters. There were some I'd have liked to have seen more of but I guess there's only so much you can put in one book! I'd have really liked to have found out more about the epically long mission that Dante was on. It keeps being mentioned throughout this book and the previous one; it'd be awesome to actually read it though. There was also a sense of nostalgia about Shadow Wave, not only James feeling it because he'd be leaving campus soon but for the reader as well. James was around twelve-years-old when the series started so it feels like we've watched him grow up throughout the books. I liked how the author finished off the book (and the series). It was just the right amount of happy cheesiness without going overboard. A great story and a great ending to an awesome series. I can't wait for Muchamore's next series and of course the next of the Henderson's Boys books!

Cherub is a guilty pleasure of mine and I feel that Shadow Wave was a terrific note to end on. Not only is the subject matter important for today's youth to be aware of, but it is also relevant to them as most would know of the tsunami that is being referred to. Shadow Wave highlights environmental issues, human rights and government corruption. A fitting ending.

    The first CHERUB book, The Recruit, is an all-time favourite of mine. I even made the ultimate sacrifice and gave my copy away to my nephew to turn him into an avid Muchamore fan. As for this, the last CHERUB novel with James in it, I didn't enjoy it nearly as much, unfortunately. My main gripe is probably that it moves too quickly, if such a thing is possible.

Also, given it's James's last book as the main hero, I expected (and wanted) to read a lot more about him. But he was conspicuously absent a lot of the time. A little bit of nostalgia did NOT go a long way in this case! I (try to) love all the Muchamore books, but this one fell a bit short of my expectations.

    I liked this book but not as much as the other ones in the series. Since this is the last book in the series, it didn't really have a great plot because it was mostly just ending the story for most of the characters. I didn't like that the main character of the series was only a minor character in this book.

    Robert Muchamore's Shadow Wave, the 12th book in the CHERUB series, was one enjoyable book to read. Muchamore has cleverly employed a twist for the finale. The novel follows up from the previous book in the series - Brigands M.C, where various agents attempt to infiltrate and take down a large motorcycling club. The story sets off during a shady weapons deal, with James working undercover as a Brigands biker. Police surround the building where the deal is happening and Fuhrer attempts to escape, Robert Muchamore's Shadow Wave, the 12th book in the CHERUB series, was one enjoyable book to read. Muchamore has cleverly employed a twist for the finale. The novel follows up from the previous book in the series - Brigands M.C, where various agents attempt to infiltrate and take down a large motorcycling club. The story sets off during a shady weapons deal, with James working undercover as a Brigands biker. Police surround the building where the deal is happening and Fuhrer attempts to escape, only resulting in police custody with a broken leg. James returns to CHERUB campus and attends a wedding between a mission controller and her boyfriend. There he is reunited with several ex-cherubs and retired staff members. Kyle finds a mission briefing where James is to act as the son of a high-ranking figure in the British government who is negotiating a weapons deal with the Malaysian defence minister, Tan Abdullah. Kyle then recounts to James his past experience in Malaysia when, assisting a CHERUB basic training course, a tsunami hits and Tan Abdullah uses this as an opportunity to build luxury hotels over the villages. James quits the mission and joins Kyle in a scheme to embarrass Abdullah. From that point onwards, James and Kyle help lead protesters to Abdullah and shame his family, to the extent where, to avoid further embarrassment, commits suicide on himself. I enjoyed the story and was a bit emotional to hear James go after following his journey as a cherub agent through several years. The novel had tense, dramatic action, and sufficient story development, which kept me glued to the pages for hours on end. Kyle's story about his time in Malaysia was told with several flashbacks, which had great results. I thoroughly enjoyed reading about his time working with the young cherubs. I found this to be a great finale for James's cherub career, and felt a tinge of regret to see him go. I will be looking forward to read Muchamore's new cherub series, and I hope it will be as exciting, or even more exciting, than this series. I would highly recommend this book for fans of the Cherub series and anyone in general, irrespective of whether they've read previous books in the series. Well done Muchamore. 4/5 stars

He see up a head the village swaying in time together and he runs. Once he has raced back to the hotel he sees the kids holed up on the top floor of the hotel. He is yelled at to hurry up there. I occurs to him that there may be the threat of a tsunami. This confirmed as he get up there is told that the Cherub headquarters has called to say that there will be a tilde wave but it may not reach them. Immediately after the call of safety has been received they trainees are back out. Will they be caught in the shadow wave? How will the village down the road fear? What will they do to help? I would recommend this book and series to anyone over the age of 12 and that enjoy action and adventure. I give this book a 9 out of 10. This is because of the action packed nature and the story line and plot.
