ADDICTIVE! I'm talking 50 Shades of Grey addictive. Finally, a story unlike most others. I'm insanely psyched and can't wait to see what comes next.
I found this quite an interesting read with quite a different take for the plot. Harry Potter it ain't, but it is set in a school, one it seems to develop "agents" to fight for, well to save the world!
It deals with teenage problems and temptations in a novel way and still has a good underlying plot to it - it has several main characters across age groups and an evil bad guy like all good books!
As an avid reader of the teen/young adult genre I must say I was pleasantly surprised by the SWA. The continuous provacation of the imagination is ever present throughout the Sword of Steel. The author has an innate way of enticing the reader into his world and keeping them there. To me the book is a breath of fresh air and what makes it more so is that the story is only just beginning. I for one will be following with great interest the remaining books in the series after having just purchased the Crocodiles Smile.

Great read! Fresh exciting story line with interesting characters that packs a punch. Assisted by a brilliant writing technique my imagination easily lead me into the world of the SWA. It's obvious after reading Part 1 that he's only just scratched the surface and therefore I cannot wait to read the next instalment!
