    I loved this book it was even better than the first it was so action-packed from start to finish I loved the war-related realism how this book shows just how bad war is. I loved the characters even more than before the new one PT is really interesting as well. I loved the story it was non stop action and I loved how WW2 was depicted in this book. So overall I loved this book and will be continuing the series as soon as possible.

    This second volume in the prequel series to Cherub, set in World War II, moves things along rather well. Whilst The Escape was the story of some children caught up in the German invasion of France, this is the story of how a group of children end up working for British intelligence during the war.

Rosie, Paul, Marc and new character PT have met British spy Charles Henderson and are headed to the safety of England but Henderson has a mission for them first. My favorite thing about this story is the accuracy of the World War II setting. Throughout the book there are great depictions of life in occupied France and under the Germans and the whole plot is based on something which actually happened. The mission is cause fires to mark where bombers should bomb to destroy barges meant to cross the channel and invade England. If I didn't know this was a work of fiction I would think it actually happened as it is so well researched and put together. The characters are strong, with each of the children having special skills that can be put to use. I always thought this was the cleverest thing from the Cherub series, the idea that children who are criminals and orphans often have special skills and with the right guidance can really make use of them. PT is a good addition to the cast, although there is a whole section which gives his 'origin story' in New York and I felt it added nothing to the story apart from unnecessary length. Charles Henderson is also well constructed- so often the adult characters in young adult books are little more than an outline but Henderson is a fully-fledged proper complicated adult. This book also solved the few problems I had with the first one. I worried that the Germans were made to be overly evil and wondered that surely some of them were OK and low and behold in this book we have some friendly Germans. I was also frustrated the lack of an ending in the first book but we get one here. It's very much a two book story and I guess the next volume takes the series in a slightly different direction This is a triumph from Muchamore, a young adult book that has all the action needed to keep reluctant male readers interested but also gives us superbly accurate depiction of a small part of World War II.

    Set during World War II, Charles Henderson and four orphaned children work together in France to sabotage Hitler's invasion of Britain. After reading The Escape (the first of the Henderson's Boys series), it didn't seem like things could get any better but Eagle Day manages it from start to finish. Continuing the story of how CHERUB came to be, this story just gets more and more exciting.

After reading the first instalment of the series, it really got me hooked and I was really keen to see what the second book was to bring to the exciting series. The second book begins where the first was left, June 1940, during World War II. Hitler has now conquered France and intends on crossing the channel to take over Britain. Meanwhile, Charles Henderson, a British spy and a group of teenagers that joined him in the first book to escape France have failed in doing so as one of the teenagers ( After reading the first instalment of the series, it really got me hooked and I was really keen to see what the second book was to bring to the exciting series. The second book begins where the first was left, June 1940, during World War II. Hitler has now conquered France and intends on crossing the channel to take over Britain. Meanwhile, Charles Henderson, a British spy and a group of teenagers that joined him in the first book to escape France have failed in doing so as one of the teenagers (Marc [13]) does not have a passport as he escaped an orphanage before the bombing of France – which causes him and Henderson to stay back and get him a passport whilst the other two kids (Rosie [13] and Paul [11]) have already left on a ship named “Cardiff Bay” which gets attack by the Nazis, and is sunk a fair distance away from shore. After this disaster happens, the four are reunited back in France, where they meet a boy who goes by the name of PT, an American boy in trouble with the law. Now stuck in France again, they begin a risky mission to sabotage the German invasion plans on Britain, whilst also facing the challenge of escaping, once again. I really enjoyed the plot in the story because when your reading it, it basically puts you in the brutal reality that some people had to live through during these terrible times – and the way they reacted to beatings or their society being destroyed. This is one of the keys reasons I was still hooked and wanting to read more. Amongst the many interesting characters in this book PT Bivott, the boy who has a shady background, is the guy who kept me the most hooked into the book. Reason being the way he acts and lives, after the death of his brother and father in a failure robbery. Every now and then during the book you get a flashback of what his past life was like, it intrigued me and I wanted to know more. It’s also interesting as he uses techniques and tricks he learnt in his part life to help the others escape. When reading this book, I learnt behind all the action packed plot a lot more about World War II, and what it would be like to live in these times, be forced to put your soul on the line for your country, whether you’re French or German, and be put in brutal life threating conditions almost every day. This makes me feel really fortunate I wasn’t born in these times. The quote from the book that I found most interesting was “These Germans call us apes. They won’t ever let a black man go. So better to die trying to escape, eh?” This quote proves how racist Hitler was and how times have changed so much since then, where black people were compared to apes, and how they would let a white prisoner go but never a black.

    Vague spoilers. Nothing too major. This still hasn't particularly changed my opinion on war books - relying too heavily on action, and all-around relatively dull. But I'm unfairly biased. I have to say that I love the portrayal of women. Maxime is gorgeous and fierce, and doesn't take much from Henderson, especially when he makes the offhand comment of leaving his wife for her when they part.

Rosie is a darling and I give her full points for biting Durmont's nose when he tries to rape her. Even Henderson, annoying as he is, should be given credit for tying him up. The other characters are shockingly well-rounded, too; Paul is lovingly developed and I adore how stubborn he is about fetching the chocolate sauce he got from the Germans, even in the midst of explosions and an escape plan. Henderson still seems to go by old gender expectations of "boys will be boys" but I think he's purposely written off as a bit sexist, and while it's written to be more 'accurate' to the time it's set in, the characterisation doesn't suffer. McAvery, especially, is a dear, and I look forward to reading about her more later. And the inclusion of the African men worked well, and it was nice to see the acknowledgement of their participation in the war and treatment by occupying forces.

    3.5 stars because I liked this more than the first book in the series...but still not that much. This story follows Marc, Rosie, Paul and new addition PT as they hide in Northern France with British spy, Charles Henderson. That’s honestly the best plot summary/introduction I can give because it took me so long to read this I can’t remember half of it...

My initia 3.5 stars because I liked this more than the first book in the series...but still not that much. This story follows Marc, Rosie, Paul and new addition PT as they hide in Northern France with British spy, Charles Henderson. That’s honestly the best plot summary/introduction I can give because it took me so long to read this I can’t remember half of it... I’m going to start with something I actually forgot to write in my review of the first book but is still very much relevant to this one. My initial concern was that Muchamore seems to have his age perception a bit off. Marc is supposed to be twelve, and PT only fifteen. Now, I’m no 12-15 year old boy, but the way they talk seems a little unbelievable and, particularly when they’re talking/thinking about girls, they sound more like 17 year olds, and borderline sexist 17 year olds at that. I realise that it’s set in WW2 but I don’t think this was a case of trying to achieve historical accuracy. Drawing on this, Muchamore seems a bit obsessed with including ‘sexual’ (there are no actual sex scenes, but they relate) scenes which have no relevance whatsoever. I’ll use an example from very early on in the book: the kids all sit there spying through an open door at Henderson and another woman undressing. I’m sorry, but all we got from that was that they were romantically involved which could’ve easily been shown in a way that was less creepy and weird for a book aimed at people younger than me. And the scene is never revisited - it has zero significance. And that happens a couple of times. Rant over, I’ll talk about why I liked this book more than the first one: it actually felt like the kids were doing something. In the last one it was all Henderson, and the others felt like they were just tagging along or being babysitted. This time they seemed to add value, and the whole idea that Henderson is realising their potential made more sense. I really loved the first part of the book where we were told PT’s story, but I must admit it all slows down a bit in the middle which is why it took so long for me to read this. However, I’ve already read the first couple of chapters of the next book and it seems promising. It sounds a lot more like what I’ve been expecting in these last two books so fingers crossed...

    A much more entertaining read than the first in the series, and well worth the time. After I finished the first book, The Escape, I thought that I would read this (as I had been loaned the first two books by my housemate) and then leave the series there, as it wasn't going to be interesting enough to read all seven. I'm happy to say that this one has completely reversed that opinion, and I think that now I will continue the series to its conclusion.

I'm happy to say that this one has completely reversed that opinion, and I think that now I will continue the series to its conclusion. It may help that I have all but finished another series of YA/kids books that I was reading (Septimus Heap), that I was not particularly enjoying. I have only the companion book to read to conclude that series, whereas when I read the first of this series, I was still midway through and disappointed in each book. Now that the end is very much in sight, I need another series, and this was perfectly situated. That's not to say that I would have read this regardless: I do think this second book is a vast improvement on the first. Perhaps because there was less need to introduce characters and set the scene, this already having been done in the first, allowing the story to be much more of a focus (which was always the strength of the CHERUB books). The story is therefore much more developed, which makes for a more entertaining read - the book itself is also bigger, which again gives the author more space to put in some character development as a subsidiary focus. I also felt like the characters behaved more appropriately for how they had been introduced, although there is definitely too much of a modern feel. I know that not everyone alive then would be the stereotypical example of the 1940s that is often portrayed in historical fiction, but the author seems to have written this in pretty much the same manner as his other series, and just changed names and places to fit in with the wartime period, without altering any behaviour. As I said, it's definitely an improvement on the first. I do hope this improvement continues, as I remember enjoying CHERUB when I was younger, and I'd like to see how the series concludes. After Septimus Heao, though I'm not going to finish a series if I'm not enjoying it just to find out why - it's not worth my time. We shall see.

    I loved the first book and I think I liked this one slightly less in some ways. PT annoyed me in a lot of ways - his lack of loyalty. I understood it, but I also hated it. Henderson also grated on my nerves. He seemed to become more and more childish and immature. To be honest, he seems really young and I guess due to my own advancing age - particularly young. His relationship with Maxine annoyed me on many levels - one of which was you know, his wife?

On the other hand, I grew to love Marc, Paul and Rosie even more. Each had strengths that developed further in this book and it was nice to see them take on greater responsibility for their 'mission'. I particularly liked how being a woman or being tiny or young didn't affect their ability to kick ass. All of them take on stronger opponents and outwit them to achieve victory. Another favourite who doesn't really get a lot of screen time was McAfferty. But the scenes with her were wicked. I loved how she handled herself and the way her superiors recognised her worth. I hope to see more of her in future books.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Robert Muchamore, the author of “Eagle Day”, is an author one can expect a lot from. This is not the case in this World War 2 based book about a spy in France. Taking place during France's occupation, Henderson, a British spy along with children Marc, Paul, PT, and Rosie go out on several missions to help the British recover France. The book relates a lot to bravery, making tough decisions, and calamity. If one is a person who enjoys history,this book will be much of a disappointment.

The book relates a lot to bravery, making tough decisions, and calamity. If one is a person who enjoys history,this book will be much of a disappointment. With little to none factual truth, this book at points is really hard to read through, and seems to be persuading that the Nazi regime in France was destroyed by a group of Children and a single British spy (Side note : I know this book is historical fiction, it just completely lacks that “Historical” part) As well, the books lacks a lot of deep character development, and I feel that takes away part of the novel, and honestly one would prefer some character development over the ongoing action, which was probably one of the only pluses in this book, keeping it exciting, and action filled, but that excess amount of action really took apart the connections in the plot. This could’ve been a better book if it had a better solid foundation. Nobody wants a 30 page introduction however Robert Muchamore is fully capable of disguising it in a creative way. In summary, this book is for the people who like action; however, due to the lack of background information, people who need a book on some factual basis might struggle with this read. This book might also apply to people looking for a quick, and fast paced read. It has lot of action and constant things going on and developing along the story line, but not developing the characters.

This book introduces the reader to characters in training for agent work and shows them going through their paces. All the teenaged angst is introduced to the reader but doesn't bog the book down. All are orphans and all have strengths and weaknesses in their characters - a common trait in all Cherub series - weakling, dominant bully etc. Once you know the formula for the series, as a reader you are introduced to a different theme but still have the good guy vs the bad guy. This book was as fast paced as others in the series and despite having prior knowledge of the Cherub series I could still have read this as a stand alone book and enjoyed it. Maybe that would have improved my overall rating for the book. Let's see what the teenager thinks....

I picked this book up because I was picking though random books last year (Gr7) and only had time to read some of it, but I liked it so I tried to find this book again this year. I managed too and finished it because I liked the descriptive writing during the stressful situations, because it managed to make me imagine what was happening. I would recommend this book to Kevish, because he likes this series, but he probably read this book already. He could re-read this book though.

A quote I found interesting in this book was "Either I blow your brains out now, I tie you to the bed upstairs with enough food , water and money and we'll get a 12 hour head start or you stay with us and behave your self." I found this quote interesting because it shows just how desperate times were in the war and how hostile Charles Henderson was prepared to be to save a few lives.

    This is the second in the Henderson's Boys series. Book one was set in France in the middle of 1940. In this book we move to 1941 and Hitler is planning an invasion of Britain. Henderson and his four children are still in France and he attracts some more displaced children who help him disrupt the the invasion equipment. This doesn't flow quite as easily as book 1.

We get a vivid picture of France under German occupation with ordinary French men and women trying their best to continue their lives and earn their living as before. This makes it easier for Charles Henderson and his motley crew to insert themselves into positions where they can observe and gather information. But not all of the children are reliable and committed to the secret activities they need to do. Once again there is violence but it is more comic strip than disturbing. In the last few chapters there are a number of scenes of action with different players and different time requirements. There is a good map but a lot of the key places are in the difficult to see part where the pages join.

I really Loved the plot line even through it was simplistic and was very believable and I also love how we get to see many different place and I also enjoyed the undercover work as well as the bit based in America. I only thing that really spoiled it for me is the bit where we jump to London and Miss McAfferty, which confused me slightly. Overall, I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the next book in this series. I really like Robert Muchamore's writing and has done very well with this book

When the day finally comes to escape back to Britain, they run into some bumps in the road and struggle to complete their mission. I, a 13 year old boy would reccomend this book to teenagers who enjoy reading action packed novels. If you were to read this book I would start with the first in the series to get to know the characters first. I thought that it was a very good book and something that I could continue reading for a long period of time. In the past I have usually not enjoyed reading, but with this book that changed.
