I am delighted to welcome Andy Briggs back to the blog today as part of his ‘Black Knight’ blog tour with a special guest post. ‘Black Knight’ is the third book in the fast paced ‘ The Inventory’ adventure series, packed with high-tech thrills and excitement. After an ancient artefact is stolen from a museum, Dev and his friends worry that someone is trying to trigger a spectacular, long-forgotten weapon: the Black Night. Is criminal network Shadow Helix behind the latest raid, or is a new enemy on the rise?
Without further ado I will pass you over to Andy with his book recommendations for fans of ‘The Inventory’ series
5 favourite adventure books
‘if you’ve read The Inventory series so far you will love these…’
If you’ve enjoyed The Inventory series so far then I would suggest these awesome titles for further epic adventures:
Artemis Fowl – Eoin Colfer
A masterpiece of fusing action and fantasy, all seen through the eyes of a wonderful anti-hero. What’s there not to like?
Cherub – Robert Muchamore
Spies with attitude. Great plots weaved with typical Muchamore skill. Love ‘em!
The Bodyguard – Chris Bradford.
While I loved Chris’ sword-swinging samurai series, Connor Reeves won me over as the young bodyguard in this awesome series. Action, glamour that puts Bond to shame.
Time Riders – Alex Scarrow
This is a super fun series – that blends time travel with heady adventure. Mind bending and thrilling. Grab ‘em now!
And for the slightly more accomplished reader, I would have to recommend the grand-daddy of action adventure books –
Cussler seems to have written approximately a bazillion books. Not enough in my view. They are wonderful edge of your seat adventure books that fuse stunning action with global adventure. A perfect read for a beach – and I thoroughly recommend his Dirk Pitt series. Pure joy.
A huge thank you to Andy for stopping by the blog today with a brilliant list of recommendations. Thank you also to Scholastic for inviting me to join in with the blog tour and for sending me a copy of this fantastic book, I can’t wait to put it in my school library!
