James Bond’s Q would have been delighted with this engaging series focused on three intelligent, daring and technologically astute teens. Will, Andrew and Gaia are back in their third adventure, this time called into action to help the niece of a scientist who died while working on a top-secret project of worldwide importance. It isn’t long before they are on their way from England to Switzerland, following one lead after another on the trail of a ruthless megalomaniac determined to control the world’s energy supplies. With some behind-the-scenes assistance from Will’s soon-to-be step-grandfather, an ex-KGB agent still in Russia, as well as their friend Barrington from MI-6, they let nothing stand in their way of getting to the truth…even if it means outsmarting assassins, ducking flying laser Frisbees and avoiding robot surveillance everywhere. This action-packed series entry holds up and stays relevant by focusing on developing technology, key issues of today and tomorrow and characters that are increasingly three-dimensional. This series is a satisfying ride for all concerned, leaving readers with a sense of happy anticipation for the next installment. (Thriller. 10-14)
