    happypug12's book review was featured in School for SPIES Book 2 Thicker Than Water (A School for Spies Novel).
    51gur74lall._sl160_Spy fans, James Bond fans, ANYTHING fans, you will LOVE this book! (Make sure you've read the first book, Playing with Fire, before you start this epic sequel.) Let me just tell you, I was so, so, so excited to read this book (I didn't even know there was a sequel until I found this book randomly) and I was absolutely NOT disappointed! We are warmly greeted with with our amazing (and snippy) main character, Max. Your heart starts to pound as the drama suddenly intensifies, as Max's sneakers slap the pavement and time seems to slow, as Max pulls the trigger of the weapon and . . . well, I won't spoil it for you. There is NO cheesy drama in this, and no matter what your opinion on spy books is, there just isn't any in this, but that DOES NOT mean we miss a single bit of Max's much-loved wry smiles and witty cracks. The action is just so well balanced, and this book is extremely quick paced. It is lovable in every form, with Max's "daddy" issues, the explosions, rubber bullets, hostages, Cynnabar's protectiveness of Max, and - EVERYTHING. This book will appeal to all audiences, especially people who adore action and exploding coke bottles or maybe just someone who wants a book that they can curl up with and never ever stop reading. Clean language and clean humor. 5/5 stars!
