Publisher's Summary

"A page-turner in the spirit of Alex Rider and co." (Kirkus)

Only one secret agent can defeat the world's most ruthless criminal organization.

He was surrounded. Jason's body worked automatically, his mind blank. He was fighting to breathe, forcing himself not to give up. But he was trapped. Standing on one leg and kicking out to keep the men back, he fumbled for the door handle to his left. He ran inside and leaped onto the narrow window ledge. He was nearly 100 feet up, but the Triad thugs were closing fast. Jason jumped....

Martial arts expert and undercover agent Jason Steed is on the run, hunted by a crew of vicious criminals. To survive, he must rely on his training - to be faster, smarter, tougher. Jason will do whatever it takes to defeat the Triads. But when his own government turns against him, does he have more enemies than he can handle?

Revenge: Jason Steed


It's nonstop spy action with a twelve year old multiple-black belt secret agent. Jason Steed is a character that is hard to believe but hey, this is fiction

Making a character 12 isn't making a YA novel.

I was given a free code to listen to this book and offer an honest review.

I tried very hard to finish this book. I rarely give up on anything I am reading or listening to; but, this book was just so horrible I couldn't finish it.

The only positive of this book is the narrator. He does a great job keeping the characters on point. There were a few places the narrator sped up and it didn't flow well with the text being presented but overall a very good presentation by the narrator. I will have no problem listening to him in the future.

The actual story itself is just so bad. A wealthy 12 year old "spy" planted into a juvenile detention center and manages to make friends with the son of the head of the Asian mafia in about 30 seconds. This child has never fired a gun but somehow manages to leave a trail of bodies in his quest for freedom. (Where is he finding all these rounds btw?) The book has a body count George RR Martin would be jealous of, but when a character is killed off you don't really care. None of the characters have any depth, including the main character.

I gave up with about 45 minutes left and it is not even 6 hours long. I have 3 sons (20, 19 and 12) and none of them have spoken or acted like this child. As a YA novel, none of my sons would be able to relate to this character. You cannot write a story where you arbitrarily decide the main character is 12 and call it YA.

Skip this one.

Jason Steed and Alex Rider takeout to a new level.

Jason Steed and Alex Rider takeout to a new level. Both teen spy series has been a big hit with me. Revenge is non-stop action. I’m sorry let me say that louder—NON-STOP ACTION! From prison to Spain to Hong Kong and more! We are constantly moving and fighting! Bullets zing. Kicks fly. Blood flows! And revenge is not far behind. The Triads will do anything to get their hands on the undercover agent that turned their criminal empire upside down. They want Jason Steed! Along for this action packed ride is Joanne—the daughter of a powerful leader who the Triads want silenced and under their control. Joanne….hmm. What to say about Joanne? She annoyed me!
Jason Steed grabbed a’hold of my heart in book one. I never know where Jason will take me, but danger and suspense are guaranteed. Death, guns, fists, and leopards! Yes, leopards. Haha…One particular feeding time scene was my favorite part of the book.
The narrater was good, a few times he got a little dry when it could have been a little more exciting to match the scene, the story carried it. 5 Stars
