About this deal

Mad Dogs is the eighth novel in the CHERUB series by Robert Muchamore. In this novel CHERUB agents infiltrate a violent street gang. Child Soldiers: Cherubs are intended to be more spies than soldiers, but they do get weapons training and tactical training. Leonid Aramov is marked out as a monster in part by his raping of his wife and several Korean refugees. urn:lcp:maddogscherub00robe:epub:6f4ca3bf-5785-4cc6-a073-fb3522bb181a Extramarc University of Toronto Foldoutcount 0 Identifier maddogscherub00robe Identifier-ark ark:/13960/t9q250s0p Isbn 9780340911716

Plant listening devices in the office of George Stein, a professor with suspected links to Help Earth (with Shak) (SUCCESS) Initially, the series follows James Choke, better known as James Adams (his adopted name at CHERUB), as he enters CHERUB and performs various missions. However, the focus later expands to other characters, such as James' sister Lauren and several other characters who work alongside him and in separate missions. The initial series of 12 novels runs from the recruitment of Adams aged 11 to his retirement from CHERUB at age 17. The second series of five novels, Aramov, follows Ryan Sharma, another CHERUB agent; James Adams reappears in this series as a CHERUB staff member. Beneath Suspicion: The whole point of CHERUB children. People, even paranoid criminals, don't expect 11 year olds to have intelligence training, meaning they can get away with a great deal. CHERUB is a branch of British Intelligence. Its agents are aged between 10 and 17 years. Cherubs are mainly orphans who have been taken out of care homes and trained to work undercover. They live on CHERUB campus, a secret facility hidden in the English countryside. Ordinary High-School Student: CHERUB agents pretend to be these while on missions, and in most ways are much like any other teenagers.

Heroic BSoD: In Class A, James is forced to shoot and kill a man in self defence. He had no other option and it was obviously justified, but he's affected by it for some time. James Adams is described as being well built, with blue eyes and blond hair, and 6 feet (1.8m) tall [1] when fully grown. [2] He has been known to acquire weight easily, due to his tendency to not care about what he is eating. James easily gets girlfriends on missions and on campus due to his good looks and tendency to get off with every girl he sees.

This is James’s 8th mission and its objective was to intercept a turf war between two major gangs in England, ‘The Slasher Boys’ and ‘The Runts’ . The story line follows after the end of Class A where Keith Moore’s gang has collapsed with the two gangs engaged in a violent conflict over the Luton underworld. Cherub’s plan is to sneak James into a football club controlled by the Mad Dogs and endeavouring to use his connections with Keith Moore to get close to Sasha, the leader of the gang. James throughout the plot shows his loyalty through raids and stealing and eventually gains the Boss’ trust. John Jones: "Pretty brave attempting The Lord of the Rings.

In this book I believe it did a greater job in exploring it’s secondary characters than our main protagonists. Although, this may be due to the case that our beloved main agents are maturing and that the author wants to investigate new attributes behind different characters. Muchamore has proven that he has a good understanding of the main figures' personalities very well. I especially like the sections concentrated upon Bruce and the antagonists such as Wheels and Junior. Including Junior, there were returning personas from one of my favourite books from Muchamore’s collection: Class A, which adds to the sense of nostalgia which I thrive upon. Through growing to love these characters and the progression of missions, this book ends the story of one of the older generations, Kyle who was the person who first recruited James to CHERUB. This was sad to see as I loved Kyle’s sassy nature yet maturity on how he acted liked an older brother to James. Nevertheless, James’ maturity level has notably changed and has become a minor, but significant pivotal moment in the series, where James interaction with his current girlfriend, Diana has become more honest and knowledgeable to Greg "Rat" Rathbone is about a year younger than James. He is Lauren Adams' boyfriend. He was recruited in the fifth book, Divine Madness. Vladimir Obidin and his department in The Fall, who are every bit as involved in the arms trade as Denis.

Author Appeal: Association Football is frequently mentioned, and even plays a central roll in Mad Dogs. Several characters, including the main character James, are huge fans of Arsenal, reflecting Robert Muchamore's own personal fanaticism for the Gunners. At one point, James almost starts a fight with fans of an opposing team.

Kazakov grabbed the harness of James’ parachute and yanked the straps so tightly that James’ shoulders squeezed together. His stomach churned as the giant Russian eye-balled him. The brilliant sunshine turned the beach below into white glare, but he looked down and was reassured to see the previous jumper hundreds of metres away. You couldn’t look up through the canopy, so the rule was that you only worried about people below you. Spy School: CHERUB Campus is a spy school, but for the most part it works like any other British school in terms of classes, teachers, subject, assignments, exams, etc. The biggest difference is that some additional subjects such as martial arts and infiltration skills are also taught, and at the age of 10 students go through basic training before they can become fully qualified agents.
