These teens are amazing. Their mother dies, a dad they never met comes to pick them up, they learn he's a spy and suddenly the twins have these spy and ninja skills to get them out of sticky situations. Be ready to take a leap of believability if you read this book. At times, discriptions of deaths are graphic but there are no swear words or sexual content. Dispite it's flaws, it's a fun non-stop action book that reads like an action packed Jason Bourne type movie. ( )

overall a boring book and none of the characters were very likeable. the action was decent but that was about it. ( )

I'm not normally drawn to adventure books, but this one kept my attention. Parts were somewhat violent/graphic for my taste, but overall it was a good book and one that would grab the attention of any young reader who loves adventure and a good plot. ( )
