Colt Shore’s life changes dramatically when he learns that the people he always thought to be his parents are not his parents. Being in a school that trains super agent spies he finds himself assigned to a case to protect a young rock band on tour and is pushed into fighting a criminal ring dealing in human trafficking.

Aimee at Arundel Publishing kindly sent me a pre-release copy of this first book in what promises to be a cool series. I went into this eyes-wide-open, even though I feared it was going to be a rip-off of Anthony Horowitz's Alex Rider series—both series featuring a type of teenage James Bond. I was also a little wary of it being as unreadably horrible as the last book I accepted from a little-known publisher and a first-time author. You won't find my review of that book, because I didn't write o ...more

Agent Colt Shore: Domino 29, by Axel Avian, is a well rounded, fully sculpted novel. I enjoyed this storyline immensely. Colt Shore starts in the present tense, where he is with young girls who have been captured and locked up, and he must save them from a human- trafficking ring, and he looks back to how this whole domino effect started. Colt's parents are elderly, and he feels he has lived in the shadow of his older brother, Dix, his whole life. His parents have a shrine dedicated to their son ...more

All his life Colton Shore has heard about his older brother Dix. Dead at age twenty-two, Dix has always been the hero; handsome, young and perfect. But what Colt doesn't know is that the people in his life have never been completely honest with him. When a startling truth comes to light regarding Dix, Colt is thrust into the secretive world of field agents.

Now Colt must go undercover to protect Talya and Thorne, members of Colt's favorite band....and the children of missing journalist Sophie El

Agent Colt Shore: Domino 29 is a fast-paced spy novel that will take you on a globetrotting, action-filled mission across the world. Alex Rider better watch out because there’s a new spy kid in town.

Colt Shore is not your typical 15 year old boy. He knows how to play drums, he goes to a secret-agent training school, knows 3 different language, have a third-degree black belt and he just recently found out that he’s the son of two of the top agents of

Agent Colt Shore: Domino 29 is a fast-paced, action packed spy novel. It took me a day to finish this book. I just couldn't stop reading it. It was like this movie was playing in my head and I didn't want to pause it, yes this book would definitely be an awesome movie if they ever made one.

The plot was pretty good. I never actually read spy books before so this was a something new and surprisingly I just loved it! In this book we meet Colt Shore whose an ordinary teen who attends a spy school

I was contacted by Arundel Publishing and given the opportunity to read Agent Colt Shore: Domino 29 before it is officially released on May 15th. I have to say that not only was I honored to get this opportunity, but I was more excited to read this new teen spy novel.

I loved Agent Colt Shore. I stayed up until 2am and read it straight through the day I got it. As it says on the cover, this was a thrilling must-read. It has everything you want from a

In Agent Colt Shore, author Axel Avian gives us a fast paced, action-filled book that will please both teens and adults.

I couldn't help but love Colt Shore. He's just an ordinary 15-year-old boy who has been training at FALCON, a special training school for secret agents. Although Colt hasn't trained to be a field agent, circumstances take place and he finds himself on an active assignment to protect a young teen rock band touring overseas. Armed with some cool gadgets, Colt sets off for quite a

WARNING : You will not want to set down this book. It may lead to very late nights spent reading.
This book was AMAZING. I've only read one other YA(i'm billing this as YA, as it's definitely a crossover book, spannig multiple genres. I'm sure MG lovers will love it too though, and i'm lending it to my 9 year old sister to read next!) book dealing with teenage 'secret agents', and it was my favorite book, thus I was super excited to read AGENT COLT SHORE : DOMINO 29.

I could NOT put this book down. I loved every minute of it, and I'm very hopeful that it will turn into a series. :)

Yes, spy books are like bread and butter to me. Well, GOOD spy books, that is. And this one is definitely good.

While I want to tell you every tiny detail, I'm afraid anything I say will ruin the book - and you truly must read it for yourself. However, there are a few things I'm comfortable saying:

A boy who is haunted by the death of an older brother whom he never knew is thrown into the twist of a lifetime when an Agent of high standing visits his school. The school already was unusual by ordinary standards as its priority is to make spies and the people who help those spies/Agents do their job. Colt Shore was on a path to become an ordinary background guy, but life throws him a curve ball that has him jetting through Europe with a pop star he has idolized.

The book was one that was hard

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. If you are in any way a James Bond fan you will love meeting Colt, a mostly ordinary kid (besides the fact that he goes to an agent training high school) who overnight gets his life flipped upside-down and finds out that he is being thrown into a rock band as their drummer for their USO tour in Afghanistan, while also having to protect the other band members from being kidnapped. His choices throughout the story put together ...more

Finally, a great YA novel with a sense of humor! I borrowed this book from my son and it really appeals to an older audience without being too difficult or high-concept for young readers. Also, having an action character with a strong moral code is a really nice change of pace from the shoot-em-up books we've read in the past. The writing is strong and Axel Avian does a nice job developing his characters into realistic, sympathetic human beings, not just action machines. A great entry into the Y ...more

This pre-release copy was generously provided by Arundel Publishing for review. It is an engaging story for young adult readers. It is the story of Colt Shore, a young man who evolves from a normal life to a drummer and trained as a secret agent with an assignment to protect young women against kidnapping and human-trafficking overseas. Fast-paced and engaging.

Colt Shore attends a training academy for the organization F.A.L.C.O.N., Free Alliance for the Lasting Cooperation of Nations, which is not affiliated with any specific government. As exotic as that might seem for a fifteen year old boy, Colt feels ordinary when compared to his perfect-in-every-way older brother, Dixon, who died at the age of twenty-two before Colt was born. But in one singular moment his life is catapulte

Read this book because my 13-year-old son (who is a reluctant reader, to say the least) had picked it up and was not only tearing through it, he kept laughing out loud.

I love Alex Ryder. Anthony Horowitz is great. But COLT is a totally different beast. It's kind of like comparing The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (which Colt references) to James Bond. Alex lives in a dark world of danger. Everyone around him has been (or is in danger of being) killed. He hates the work he has to do and the assignments he'

My review as it appears on my blog, Boys To Books. I received a review copy from the publisher.

Fifteen year old Colt Shore doesn't feel like anything special. Especially when compared to his nearly perfect older brother, Dixon, who died when he was twenty-two. Yet, the fact the he attends attends a school for secret agents run by the F.A.L.C.O.N. organization, makes him special.

A fun teen-spy adventure story with lots of action and humor. Colt attends a high school run by an organization called F.A.L.C.O.N., which stands for "Free Alliance For the Lasting Cooperation of Nations." It's a training academy, a combination of secret-agent training and a "think tank" where some high-achieving students are learning about international relations and how to be the "brains" behind future spy operations. Colt is in the operations track, not ever expecting to "go active" in the fi ...more

I LOVED this book!! Great characters, interesting locations, gadgets to drool over and non-stop action make this book really special. Colt is a well developed character who faces difficult decisions but stays true to himself and his values throughout the book. Strong woman characters, beautifully detailed descriptions of locations, timely issues and lots of excitement kept me reading long into the night. I can't wait for the next book in the series!

“He grabbed me with both hands and began pushing me backward.
I lost my balance. The ledge was at an angle, and it was covered with loose gravel. I was less than a foot from the edge.
It was at that very moment that the clouds parted. The September sun burst through. The entire world was illuminated.
Time shattered into moments.
I could see for a hundred miles in every direction.
I could see mountain peeks and pristine lakes. And I could somehow feel as well as see the never-ending drop that toyed with me, ruffling my hair, pulling at my back, one step behind me.”
“I'm not a spy, I'm an agent. There's a difference. I'm protecting you, not that you seem to be grateful."
"You're protecting me. How old are you anyway?"
"Fifteen? You can't even drive!"
"I can drive," I responded. It's just that certain officers say I may not drive."
"WTF?" she said. "We're going into Afghanistan, and they've sent a pre-driver."
Pre-driver? Was that even a word? And I was here specifically because Talya and Thorne were so young. "I thought you were sixteen," I said.
"I can drive," she responded haughtily.”
