Books like Alex Rider.
Fledgling: Jason Steed - Mark A. Cooper

As a huge fan of the Alex Rider series, I doubted anything could be as good, well I was wrong. Jason Steed gives Alex Rider a run for his money, the stories are not the same and even alike but it appeals to the same reader. Jason Steed is also a British boy thrown into chaos and has to save the day. 

Jason Steed however is more like your brother, best friend I found myself falling in love with him, a brotherly love (Nothing gay) and because you get so drawn into his character when he get's upset and struggles it hits you, kind of hard to describe but in one scene I got teary eyed when he had all but given up and was injured. 

Simply written for tweens, a great start to another great series.

Fledgling Jason Steed by Mark A. Cooper
Fledgling: Jason Steed - Mark A. Cooper

Every now and then a novel is written that is just perfect and here it is.

 

Fledgling is book 1 on the Jason Steed series, well named it starts off with Jason being born. 

 

Jason's mother dies giving birth, her devoted husband can't help himself, he blames the hospital for putting the life of a baby before the love of his life. The result is he buries himself in work as a British naval officer stationed in Hong Kong.

 

Jason is brought up by a succession of nannies, without any affection. He finally finds something to occupy himself when at age 5 he joins the local karate school. At age 10 he has mastered two disciplines at karate and Judo.

 

After Jason is caught 'playing on a military flight similator' he escapes by using his martial arts skills. Jason is wanted by the military police, so his father (After beating Jason) moves to the UK.

 

Jason starts a normal life he makes friends with Scott, a very funny character, here Jason joins the Sea Cadets. At age 11 while on a summer camp near Jakarta with the Sea Cadets, a secret mission by the Marines near by goes wrong, many of the cadets get caught up in the cross fire.

 

Jason is able to speak Chinese and helps a elite SAS team to translate, when the team are caught Jason is left alone on the Island and has no option than to try and complete the mission and rescue the SAS team.

 

I think that's enough of the plot, the story goes into top gear from here. The book is action packed, has some funny parts and some emotional scenes that will have your eyes watering.

 

Conclusion.

A Tean Spy adventure novel that is also coming of age, and has a real plot and introduction to a great series. Out of all the Teen spy books I have read this is still my favorite and the most original.
