The plot of Class A is that 4 agents of CHERUB are sent to infiltrate Keith Moore’s Gang (also commonly known as KMG) led by the criminal Keith Moore. The 4 agents that CHERUB send are James Adams, Kerry Chang, Kyle Blueman, and Nicole Eddison. The agents attempt to befriend Moore’s four children in an attempt to gather evidence against KMG. James has the most success befriending Keith’s youngest son Junior and begins delivering cocaine to KMG’s customers. Nicole begins dating Junior and they both snort a large amount of cocaine which results in Nicole nearly dying and her expulsion from CHERUB. Kerry discovers KMG’s cocaine processing plant which is on the Thunderfoods factory grounds so the remaining agents on the mission tell MI5 about what they have found, resulting in MI5 setting up surveillance on the cocaine processing plant and the capture of many KMG’s senior members but not Keith Moore himself. Keith invites James to come with him and Junior to Miami intending to settle all of his accounts and to have some final time with Junior before escaping from Britain to avoid imprisonment. KMG is disbanded so the agents return to campus.

My review on the House of Hades by Rick Riordan :
Overall, I really think that Mr. Riordan has out done himself this time with his creativity because it is great how he gets each of the main characters ( besides Coach Hedge but that could change because of what may be happening in The Blood of Olympus) to narrate the chapter from their point of view and how Mr. Riordan can illustrate the place in your head as reading about is amazing how he does it. The way Mr. Riordan has each of the main characters narrate the story from their point of view is quite a cool way to narrate a story. The cliffhanger at the end of the last book in the Heroes of Olympus series, The Mark of Athena made me very impatient for the The House of Hades to be released but it was worth the 1 year and 6 days wait because The House of Hades is an awesome book and made me actually feel like I was going along on the journey with Percy and Annabeth through Tartarus and with other 6 demigods ( Jason, Leo, Piper, Frank, Hazel and Nico) as they fight their way to Epirus and the House of Hades itself . Also the way Mr.Riordan made Annabeth send a note from Tartarus addressed to Reyna in the hope that peace can be reached between the Romans and the Greeks, and how Jason left note also addressed to Reyna at Diocletian’s Palace informing her of where to find them after the House of Hades and directions to the House of Hades. The twist at the end of the story sending the Athena Parthenos east with Nico, Coach Hedge and Reyna to prevent war between the Greeks and the Romans and the demigods aboard the Argo II head east to confront Gaea and her giants at the original Mount Olympus makes me as impatient as ever for The Blood of Olympus to get released on October 7, 2014.
The way Mr. Riordan wove the story has made me wonder what’s going to happen in The Blood of Olympus, dozens of possibilities are swirling about in my head: Do the Romans and the Greeks make peace ?, Does Leo make good on his oath to free Calypso?, Does Gaea rise with the help of her giants or does she get defeated by the demigods and the gods?, Do the gods’ split personalities Roman and Greek get healed ? and above all, Do Percy and Annabeth get a happy ending?
I will try my best to answer these questions once I do my review on The Blood of Olympus once it gets released and I have read it myself
For those of you who are interested in reading The House of Hades here’s a quick synopsis: At the conclusion of The Mark of Athena, Annabeth and Percy tumble into a pit leading straight to the Underworld. The other five demigods have to put aside their grief and follow Percy’s instructions to find the mortal side of the Doors of Death. If they can fight their way through the Gaea’s forces, and Percy and Annabeth can survive the House of Hades, then the Seven will be able to seal the Doors both sides and prevent the giants from raising Gaea. But, Leo wonders, if the Doors are sealed, how will Percy and Annabeth be able to escape? They have no choice. If the demigods don’t succeed, Gaea’s armies will never die. They have no time. In about a month, the Romans will march on Camp Half-Blood. The stakes are higher than ever in this adventure that dives into the depths of Tartarus.
