I will be reading the sequel, though.
Hostage (Bodyguard, #1) by Chris Bradford
Dec 02, Danyal Wahid rated it liked it Shelves: fiction , library-issue , action-packed , teen. In all honesty I didn't expect much from this book. It just seemed like the kind of novel you read to pass the time or if you have nothing better to do. But I was in for a surprise. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. It was fun and it had that whole young James bond thing going on which I loved in the Alex rider series even if it wasn't as awesome. However at times the storyline did seem a bit rushed and incomprehensive, thus the three stars.

Chris Bradford wanted to write books for boys and for girls that were just full blown action and I'd say he has achieved his goal by once again thrilling his audience with astounding literature skill and creative thinking but be warned all the techniques in Chris' books are real and dangerous.

Hostage (Bodyguard Series #2)
A good quick read. I read this after looking for something similar to the Alex Rider series. Alex will remain forever and ever my favourite, but this one was fun. Well definitely be reading more by this author.
Sep 07, Sydney Mugerwa rated it it was ok. Perhaps I was punching below my weight or something with Hostage. It just didn't do it for me. I got turned off with platitudes by the bucketload. But for me, this was a lackluster performance. I have just read this book from the beginning to end and was completely caught by everything that happened!
Jun 06, Cindy Hudson rated it really liked it. Connor Reeves is the latest recruit in an elite organization that provides bodyguards for high profile clients. But Connor and his fellow bodyguards are unlike those of any other organization in the world: they are teens.
They have an advantage over older bodyguards, because they seem to be ordinary kids who are merely friends of the people they are protecting. Based on the first two books in the series that I have read, Recru Connor Reeves is the latest recruit in an elite organization that provides bodyguards for high profile clients. Based on the first two books in the series that I have read, Recruit and Hostage, the series is fast-paced and packed with adventure.
Connor has some experience in self defense when he joins the organization called Guardian: he wins the Battle of Britain Junior Kickboxing Tournament when Recruit opens. His training provides even more. He learns to assess threats, conduct surveillance, avoid ambushes, and gain skills in unarmed combat. Author Bradford went through bodyguard training himself, learning these same skills so he could write in a realistic way about them. Four titles in the series have been released together, making it great to pick up for summer reading.
In Recruit and Hostage, Connor gets training and goes on his first assignment, which involves protecting the daughter of the U. Action in books three and four moves a luxury yacht and involves the children of an Australian media mogul. I recommend Bodyguard for readers aged 10 and up. The publisher provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. Apr 07, Lauren rated it it was amazing Shelves: young-adult , action , reluctant-readers.
I cannot believe the beginning of this book! Fast paced ride much like Black Hawk Down. But why? What does it have to do with this teen, Connor Reeves. Just wait to find out. This is a fast-paced, action-packed story that will enthrall even the most reluctant of readers. Tension is built through these short chapters interspersed within the main action, hinting to the horror and terror to come.
We know something the main characters don't. If I was watching this in a movie, I might be b I cannot believe the beginning of this book! If I was watching this in a movie, I might be bouncing in my chair, or at homing, jogging in place, because of this awful underpinning of potential terror. Bodyguard talks about our current world filled with terrorists. It might be uncomfortable or not appropriate for some readers. And to others, the image of a Islamic terrorist might be too much or too stereotyped. Just to let you know.
Not an elementary school book, either. At least I don't think so. But if you think Alex Rider should be there, or Maximum Ride, than go for it.
If you like Alex Rider, Jason Bourne, James Bond, or any of those kinds of books and movies, you will love this novel! And I must confess--I couldn't stop reading this. I hid under my covers with a reading light to finish it in the wee hours. Bleary eyed the next day at school, when I told students why, they quickly identified and wanted the book!
click here I warned them May 18, Helene rated it liked it. I read the second book before this one, and this one was less original. Most of the book consisted of a lot of cliche story elements. Secret double life. Dead bodyguard dad.
The romance. The heroic main character.
The jerk who asks her to prom. The friend who has a brother on the bad side. Standard terrorists. However, it was still a nice book.
