1. I decided to read this book because I've been told it's the best book in the Cherub series.

2. James is my favourite character in this book. You see a whole new side of him, the rebellious, delinquent side. He rides motorcycles and is a total badass in this book. Even though his role is to be a part of a motorcycle gang, he's still a trusted and reliable Cherub agent which really shows how much he's matured.

This was a brilliant addition to the Cherub series, and I absolutely loved it from start to finish! :D

In Brigands M.C. we have the introduction of a new Cherub agent with a rather horrible past; a boy named Dante who is from a family affiliated with one of the branches of the Brigands Motorcycle Club. When a deal goes wrong, he witnesses almost his entire family murdered before his eyes while still under the age of ten, and from there basically has his entire life upended and stripped from him i

i choose to read this book because it had a cool photo on the front which made me want to read the back of the book after reading this it got me hooked and i kept reading it to the end.

it fits into "your own choice" on the bingo board.

my favorite character was James because he got to ride motorbikes and was good at fighting and bet up all the bad guys

i didn't have any favorite quote from the book .

the book made me think how cool it would be to have and ride my own motor bike.

i found it sad how

The category that this book fits into on the bingo board is a book with a male potagonist. THis book was recommended by my best friend.

I decided to read it as I had read many of the other books that followed on to this one. Another reason why I started reading the Cherub series is bescause my best friend had read many of the books at the time, so he let me borrow one of them. As I read the blurp I found it quite interesting so I decided to read the first few pages and straight away I became fixa

Have any of you read the Alex Rider series? If you have, or like action/adventure books, CHERUB by Robert Muchamore is the perfect series for you! The series (which has 15 books so far) is full of interesting characters, twisting plots, and dangerous adventures. Here with me, I have Brigands M.C., the 11th book.

Brigands, as well as the entire series, is primarily focused on fictional child spies. In this book, you will meet Dante Scott, and CHERUB agent who seeks revenge for the massacre of his

The penultimate book in the CHERUB series starts with a flashback as we see how Dante Scott became a young spy, joining the top-secret CHERUB organisation at the same time as Lauren Adams. The action then moves to the present day when Dante - along with Lauren and James - is sent on a mission that has the deepest personal meaning to him. But will he use it to seek revenge and put them all in jeopardy?

I love these books. Muchamore has created a totally believable world and realistic characters th

Another great book in the CHERUB series!

James Adams and his sister Lauren team up with new character Dante Scott to try to take down the leader of a motorbike gang, the Brigands. Dante's history with the gang makes him all the more determined for the mission to suceed.

The book was very good and the plot was interesting. The main character James was put into yet another different scenario which has been different on all the 12 books. The action wasn't as exciting to read as some of the previous books in the series which was slightly disappointing. The book also didn't feel like a page turner like the last ones did. ...more

This is a horror story. Part 11 in a series called Cherub. I would recommend to girls and boys especially teenagers and adults as it has some indecent language. The story is quite exciting but the plot can be quite hard to follow. The book ends on a cliffhanger with the mission not completed however the villain ‘The Fuhrer’ is killed right as the end of the story.

3.5 stars. Not the best book in the CHERUB series, but I still liked it! A bit bloody in the beginning but exciting to follow the backstory of a new character.

Robert Muchamore brings back another great book, Brigands M.C., this is the eleventh book in the series, and it only gets more exciting. Though the whole series has 12 books the suspense keeps raising to such a degree that it makes me want to continue reading from this author. This book brings in news protagonists, new antagonists, and a brand new setting. The book has the same amazing details as the previous books, describing everything in such vivid imagery.

CHERUB's penultimate adventure goes for And Now For Something (Not) Completely Different. It's a lot more grounded than the sort of teenage Bond-esque fare the series is known for, and it even incorporates a little bit of Kill Bill (and, even more so, The Professional) into its storyline, with the primary conflict being Dante's family getting killed off by the Brigands, and then, years later, his joining CHERUB and getting his revenge on a mission designed to infiltrate the same biker gang. And, ...more

Usually I have a hard time with books in a series that go on and on with a new character before including the main character. This book goes nearly 100 pages without James, detailing the backstory of Dante, a CHERUB agent who's been away on a mission for the last three years. I got really into Dante's story, and the mission is full of twists and turns that, in classic CHERUB fashion, may or may not pay off in the end. Normally I would think it was cheap to add a character with a 100-page sob sto ...more

His dad is the second in command in a biker gang, but has a disagreement with the man in charge, and he snaps and kills all of his family but Dante, the second youngest child, and his sister, the youngest. Dante then is taken in by a branch of British Secret Services that trains kids, known as Cherub. Dante gets to go on a mission with Cherub that takes him back to the town where his family was murdered, in an attempt to take him down.

Excellent series. Take the time frame that Harry Potter books write in (he ages from 12-18 over the series) and instead of a world of Fantasy make it a world of Spy craft. This Basically is children being James Bond or Jason Borne and based on each book everything seems fairly realistic. The one thing I appreciated over the entirety of the series is the fact that the characters actually grow and deal with puberty. It adds a layer that makes the series more teen appropriate than the Harry potter ...more

Recommends it for: Teenagers, Young Adults
Very well written like the rest of the series. Describing the story of a teenage spy and his adventures in infiltrating a biker gang is very entertaining and captivating. With exciting key events like the questioning of his true identity, trying to escape the scene before the police arrive and collecting evidence and busting gang operations like drug rings and prostitution buildings was really action packed and entertaining.

I really enjoyed this particular book in the Cherub series.

It introduced a new charachter Dante Scott and the book focused on him rather than James and Lauren Adams who up till now have been the main charachters in the series.

The background to Dante's story was excellent and I thought it was very clever how they brought in his connections to the other Cherubs in the series that we have got to know including how he did his basic training at the same time as Lauren.

Brigands M.C written by Robert Muchamore is the 11th book in a 12 book series called cherub. I enjoyed this book,but it was different to others in the series. In this book the story wasn't all based around the 2 normal main characters James and Lauren Addams,this book was based around a boy named Dante Scott whos name might sound unfamiliar but you have seen him earlier in the series. This book is mostly based around Dantes background in a motorcycle gang which his dad was involved in before his ...more

Like all Cherub books in the past, this one is as exciting as ever. Still a cover-to-cover read and with the progression of James Adam's life in question this book was hard to put down. The only real let down to this novel was that of the ending. Being one myself, that buys books of the cherub series on release, for Robert Muchamore to leave the ending I was quite saddened. Ultimately the book progresses into the 12th and last book, but this unlike his books in the past made to have a second par ...more
