Review by jessicariddoch
Teen boys bookI have something against books which glorify war easpecialy to young men but this book did not do this. I was plesently surprised by the chohesive storyline and the well rounded characters in the book. Apparently this is the 10 book in the "alpha force" series of books I have not read anyothers but I would imagine that they have got older with each book so that by this point they are well into thier late teens. The basic story line is that they are spengin their holidays provifding an "outwardbound" course for younger teens. The actual story itself begins at the end of the course with most of the participants leaving, giving them a reason to have all this equipment lying arround to be used. they then stumble onto a drugs ring and fins out enough to get the police in to have them all arrested. The action sequences are very matter of fact, this is what they were doing and this is how it was done. It was well done in that this gave a belevability to the sequence that it might have otherwise lacked.I also appreciated the fact that some of the alpha force were female, strong females, there were strenghts and weeknesses to each of the characters but thier gender did not seem to matter so much.In summary i would reccomend this book for young adventurous people (no matter the gender)On the subject of being part of a series there was enough information in the book to have this as a stand alone read without thinking "I wonder why" at reqular intervilles as you have missed the build up to something in a previous book, yet i dont think that those who have read the series would find much of the inforamtion repeated.
