Agent Colt Shore: Domino 29

Agent Colt Shore: Domino 29Agent Colt Shore: Domino 29
by Axel Avian

Published May 15, 2013

This book was provided by Arundel Publishing in exchange for an honest review.

When an ordinary kid learns he’s the heir to a secret agent dynasty, F.A.L.C.O.N puts him on a case to protect a famous rock group and find a missing journalist. Before he knows it, Colt Shore has gone from body guard to rock star to full-fledged agent when he learns that a human trafficking ring plans to kidnap a group of teenage girls. It will take more than his ingenuity and skills and a couple of cool gadgets to protect his new friends and rescue the captured girls before it’s too late.

I could NOT put this book down. I loved every minute of it, and I'm very hopeful that it will turn into a series. :)

Yes, spy books are like bread and butter to me. Well, GOOD spy books, that is. And this one is definitely good.

While I want to tell you every tiny detail, I'm afraid anything I say will ruin the book - and you truly must read it for yourself. However, there are a few things I'm comfortable saying:
* I love the way Mr. Avian lets you know each leading decision by inserting a domino: "Domino five."
* These characters are fantastic. So fleshed-out as to be completely real.
* Um, can anyone say spy gadgets? Is there anything better?
* F.A.L.C.O.N., in general. Specifically, the way they're hidden, and the fact that they're not linked to any specific government.

There's so more more I want to say, but you'll just have to read it to find out why I went all "fan girl" on this book.

5/5 stars
