For official purposes, these agents do not exist. They are sent out on missions to spy on terrorists, hack into crucial documents, and gather intel on global threats—all without gadgets or weapons. It is a highly dangerous job, but these agents have one crucial advantage: Adults never suspect that teens are spying on them. In Maximum Security, James’s newest mission brings him to the sun-baked desert prison Arizona Max, home to 280 child criminals. One of them is the son of a weapons dealer who has been selling U.S. missiles to terrorists. If James can get the kid, CHERUB has a chance to stop the father. Getting into the prison is easy. Breaking out is the hard part....

    This mission was freaking awesome and intense! It might be my favorite! James handled everything so... incredibly well! Most of the things he had to work on... he did it all by himself! I'm truly amazed! He pissed me off, sometimes... obviously! Specially, when he cheated on Kerry and made it sound like it was nothing... UGH! I HATE WHEN HE DOES THOSE THINGS!! However, despite everything, I think he has been a great character with a big potencial! I hope he grows up and I hope he realises that he should change his attitude a little bit!Anyways, this book starts with Lauren and I was very excited in the beginning! I just had to love Lauren... she was so badass in this book!!! She's my favorite character, along with Kerry. And now that we talk about Kerry... I missed her! Thankfully, she appeared at the end of the book and the moments between James and her were so cute! I SHIP THEM, ALRIGHT?! James makes it hard to do it, but... I STILL SHIP THEM! THEY ARE AWESOME TOGETHER!I was seriously expecting something different when they caught Jane Oxford, but it was cool, anyway!I am very proud of James and Lauren, because they were simply amazing in Maximum Security! THEY MADE IT! THEY DID SUCH A WONDERFUL JOB! I feel so proud!!And I can't think about anything else to say, except for the fact that I'm very pumped to read the next books!!! THIS IS GOING TO BE AWESOME!

    Maximum Security is one of my TOP 5 fav books of the Cherub series. I just love prison settings, ever since I've watched Prison Break. Speaking of which, similar to Prison Break, Maximum Security continues with the adventures of one of my favorite spies, James Adams, who is now 13. This time James must go to a maximum security prison for minors, befriend Curtis Oxford, son of Jane Oxford - one of the most wanted people in the world. James must then break them out of jail in order to win Janes' trust.Despite Maximum Security being so dear to me I had some reservations, again. When James acted like an asshole...ugh! And I don't even mean his cheating on Kerry, I get why he feels the need to snog with every hot chick who pays him a little attention, I mean when he does something extremely childish to try to impress someone. I get that he's a 13-year-old hormonal teen, but still, it's rather confusing how in one minute he's acting far beyond his age, and then in other he seems like a little bitch.I also got kind of upset at the end of the book, how Lauren was attributed a dark blue shirt (she really didn't do anything remarkable enough to get such an "honor", while James who almost got stabbed, beaten, shot at, etc, didn't get squat. Instead Mac reprimanded him because of something stupid he did before the real mission had even begun. Oh well, I guess that my relationship with RMs' books will always be contradictory as shit: I love some things, and hate some other things.

    This is book three in the outstanding Cherub series by Robert Muchamoore. This mission was different from the usual type. This organization usually tries to get criminals behind bars but in this case, James Adams has to get himself into jail to befriend a criminal. This isn't just any man behind bars though, this is the son of one of the most wanted weapons smugglers in America.James is partnered with his sister Lauren, and another Cherub agent named Dave Moss, who poses as his brother. The point of this mission is for the three of them to pose as criminals and get into a maximum security prison in Arizona so James can befriend Curtis Oxford. They plan to escape with Curtis and have him lead them to his mother, Jane Oxford. It is never as easy as it sounds, then again since when does escaping a maximum security prison sound easy. The story has gripping scenes and great suspense throughout it.Just like in the two books before it, Maximum Security had action, suspense, and in some scenes either a rigged terrifying feeling or a somewhat happy feeling. I couldn't stop reading whenever I picked it up. Once you start reading it, good luck putting it down until the very last page. It's an addicting book and based on the last two it's probably an addicting series as a whole. This story is still one of the early books of the series so the characters aren't fully developed and the reader doesn't know much about the characters either. In the end it's easy to understand and just an amazing book with great gripping scenes.

    It's refreshing to read Muchamore's world and characters. It just feels real, and there's an unpredictability to it, because the main characters are so imperfect. However, the ending was a bit anti-climactic. I can tell that Muchamore is trying to avoid the big action scene ending, probably because his style is different, but there wasn't anything to replace it and it fell a little flat. That said, I really enjoy this series and the characters and will continue for sure.

    Because I have read the other two I front of it and I really enjoyed them.they are an action sort of book with a lot of tense moments, you really your self in the characters shoes in how they describe how they are feeling and what's happening around them and to them.A fiction book with real life scenarios and real life problems "Once you get to LA tell the cops everything"That James(main character) has learnt to stay calm under pressure and to not give away his or other people's positions, he kept the lady calm while under pressure and managed to get to LA and get threw all of the road blocks. Nearly getting caught at the first road block he still kept her and himself calm. The setting was interesting to me because they were escaping from a prison which was set in the middle of the desert, the prison was an old security building which they kept the worst of the worst criminals, if you are. Aught trying to escape you will get shot. James is put in the middle of it and is struggling to keep up with all the standards.I felt the book gave real characteristics and a true feeling of what was going on, it gave the feeling and stress the the characters were given, it described how if they were in pain or not and what emotion they had. James had been in a bad situation after his mother passed away, he had gone to a hostile and had a room mate called Kyle who was a spy for Cherub, James was recruited and is beginning to become one of the agents Cherub has ever had.

    „Top Secret 03: der Ausbruch“ hat mir bisher am Besten gefallen. Die Geschichte ist um einiges gewalttätiger und ernsthafter. Ich war ein bisschen überrascht wie spannend ich den Knastalltag fand. Außerdem kratzt der Autor auch ganz leicht die psychische Stabilität der Bösen an. Ich finde es wirklich schade dass Robert Muchamore da nicht wirklich in die Tiefe geht und alles (bisher) sehr oberflächlich behandelt.Protagonist James beschäftigt sich zwar mit der Frage, ob man Mitleid haben sollte wenn der Böse an psychischen Problemen leidet, aber irgendwie habe ich das Gefühl, dass da noch viel mehr sein könnte. Gut, wir haben hier immer noch ein Kinderbuch und da sollte man auch nicht zu viel erwarten aber schade finde ich es trotzdem. Zumal diesbezüglich wirklich Potenzial ohne Ende vorhanden ist. Vielleicht kommt da in späteren Teilen nochmal was.Ansonsten sind die Protagonisten wie schon in den Vorgängern akzeptabel. Weder James noch seine Freunde sind absolute Sympathiebomben, kann aber auch an meiner Abneigung gegenüber Kindern und Teenagern liegen. Das Leben auf dem CHERUB Campus ist weiterhin interessant und abwechslungsreich gestaltet, am meisten gefallen mir aber immer die Missionen.Da steckt nochmal richtig Arbeit drinnen, Recherche und einiges an Denkarbeit, dass das alles schlüssig wirkt. Ich weiß ja nicht wie es anderen geht, aber für mich kommt da hin und wieder schon durch was der Autor früher für einen Beruf ausgeübt hat.Trotz kleiner Kritikpunkte und Luft nach oben (ob sich das jemals ändern wird?) ist „Top Secret 03: der Ausbruch" bisher der beste Teil der Reihe. 4/5 Sternen

    Maximum Security by Robert Muchamore is the story of three child spies on a mission to help escape a major drug dealers so in hopes to get clue on the major drug dealer. Of course when putting children in an actual prison nothing can never go to plan.James has been put charge in one of the most high risk missions that cherub has ever had to face. They must send a teenage boy into an actual prison and befriend the child of one of the world's most dangerous drug dealers. When there he is immediately met by people who want to kill him, gangs based on ethnicity, and abusive police officers. Unlike most people james has been trained and is able to gain people's trust fast which is a very important step towards adulthood. In life you're bound to meet new people and being able to get along with all them is a huge key to having great success in life. I think that I’m good with people except for one crucial step, introductions. Introductions are often said to be the most crucial step when talking to people. In prison most people get in fights in the first day to show that they are not to be messed with, this helps clarify the point that first impressions are very important. This something I feel I need to work on in order to become a better adult. I would recommend this book to all those interested in prison and adventure. I thought this book moved more slowly than the others in the series, but it has a very interesting concept and I would recommend it.

    wow. okay, let me just start by stating...this is not my usual read. I started the series as a favour to my younger sister and ended up liking it inspite of the rather gritty feel. So after mediumly enjoying the first I was prepared to have a similar experience with maximum security. what I couldn't have predicted was how much I enjoyed this! having said that the gritty setting almost made me put the book down nearer the beginning. I confess I know little about prisons but even spending just hrs inside of one (and even if it was only via a book) literally started to stress me out and made me feel slightly nauseous. reading about prison brutality and harsh injustices is not really something I choose to do in my time off. However once I got far enogh into the book, it's thrilling plot bullies any thought of stopping right out of my head. It was amazing, the adrenaline rush I got from reading about some of their final exploits (so as not to give the game away, that's all I'm about to reveal). I found myself sitting upright in my seat, muscles clenched, heart racing and I don't care weather this is high literature or not, a reaction like that vouches for good storytelling and makes maximum ride a book I am thankful I read and am happy to recommend :)

    Why I decided to read this book:Because its the 3rd book in the Cherub series and I had already read the first two, so this book was nextWhich category on the bingo board this book completes:This book completes the non-fiction book category as Cherub is not a real agency and there is no such thing as kid spiesWhat I liked about this book and why:I really like all the books in the Cherub series including this one as Robert Muchamore is very good at showing characters emotions and feelings and is also great at showing the conflict between characters. The book makes Cherub seem real and makes you wish you could be a kid spy, which did to me. all in all this book is very exciting and entertaining and really leaves you on the edge of your seatWhat I didnt like about this book:Nothing I liked everyting in this book, if there is ever something i dont like about a book I will stop reading that bookWho I would recomend it to:This book is great for anyone who is into a bit of action and likes to dream and imagine things,because this book sure made me imagine things that I whish were true.Taylor

    I started off the series with this book since there were no copies available of the previous ones.Firstly,I totally liked Alex Rider better.I rated all the Alex Rider books four to five stars.But I don't know whether it's the plot or a thirteen year old tryin' to be all cool and stuff,I didn't get this feeling I usually get when I'm reading a really good book.You know, the suspense and everything ,or in other words, it didn't feel like Alex Rider.It didn't feel different, the way it should feel when you're reading a good and unique book.With due respect to the author, of course, this book SUCKED!!!!!!!!!!......*ahem* alot!If my review offends any CHERUB fans, I would like to humbly apologize to them and also let them know that it wasn't my fault that I was being rude,I just couldn't help it! Sorry! :P

    The cherub series is one of my favourite series, it is a thrill seeking , action packed adventure series.Cherub is an academy where children are trained to be elite undercover agents, because who suspects children as agents. Learning various different languages to cope with their certain mission and also learning martial arts when in danger.I read the 3rd book in the series which is Maximum Security, the story is pretty good , James and Dave who are some cherubs agents are placed in a Maximum Security prison with all the criminal juveniles who have committed the worst crimes possible, such as man slaughter.The cherub agents have to find a boy called Curtis and try to escape the maximum security prison that has deemed to be inescapable.They face problems throughout the story such as being stabbed in the prison, however they have to overcome them and complete the mission objective.

    Two boys called Dave and James are sent on a mission, from the child division of the MI5 called Cherub. They are sent off to jail (part of the mission plan) and are put together with a lot of other inmates. Including the son of a illegal drugs supplier, Jane Oxford. Wanting to become close friends with Jane’s son Curtis, they both hang out and chill with his Gang. But during the process a jail fight breaks out and Dave breaks his ribs, making him unfit for the mission. So James then carries on with the mission himself, escaping with Curtis and setting him up. Then when the time came and they split apart, leaving Curtis with his mother, the MI5 intercepted him and his mother capturing them both and sending them to jail. The theme for this book is acceptance and courage.

    0/4 FEverything in this novel is either phoney, offensive, stupid or agonizing. The polar bear twist-up, a too-simple prison escape that isn't really a real escape with Cherub backup, the helper Paula is given advice to go straight to the cops (ugh!) and the end may be the biggest F.U. in literary history!You can read my full review at

    Its an amazing saga to the cherub series with a new twist the main character James(the main character) travels with his sister and another agent to go undercover.This time they are not with the law but are going against it. Their mission is to break a kid out of jail in the middle of the arizona desert since in america kids who convict crime are sentenced as adults.Will he be able to accomplish their mission?

    James Rose a secret agent for Cherub who wanted to get out of a recruitment mission, but thankfully a man called John Jones came to give him another, and more intense mission. So he had to choose the recruitment mission or the intense one. Then the next day he went with the intense mission in the most high security jail to get someone out. Maximum Security is about strength, courage, and trust.

    Did you like Prison Break? Then this book is just for you! It is something similar but with few differences. But the tension is there and also the adventure. Who wouldn't like to know how to escape from a prison? :)

    i don't really think this is a very good book, the reason I think this is because its very boring a lot of times and then it doesn't really give me the temptation to read on, there are some parts that are very exciting but i think there should be more of the eciting parts

    Ich kann eigentlich garnicht viel zu diesem Buch sagen. Den der 3. Teil war wie die anderen Teile zuvor wieder spannend und einfach toll. Sogar das Lauren mit auf der Mission war fand ich dann ganz gut, obwohl mir das anfangs nicht so gut gefallen hat.Ich freue mich schon auf die weiteren Teile.

    This book was totally amazing. It is hard to believe what James and Lauren went through together. It looks as if the training paid off a lot. You get to see more action from john too.
