John McNally is a screenwriter who's worked with the companies like Aardman, and the BBC, introduces his debut novel Infinity Drake the Sons of Scarlatti
Infinity Drake (aka Finn) a young boy who is looking forward to a week away with his mad scientist uncle, when abruptly they are summoned to a crisis meeting. A lethal bio-weapon has been released by a pitiless villain with incalculable consequences for mankind, unless his mad scientist uncle can shrink a military team to hunt down and eliminate the beasts.
Finn gets dragged along and caught up in the mix and he is accidentally shrunk to 9mm tall. Finn has to jump in a tiny helicopter with a few soldiers and a pilot in a race to avert disaster and destroy the Scarlatti - genetically engineered wasps that are killing machines, very angry killing machines and are much larger in size.
This was a thrilling and fun read which was packed to the rim with action! With likeable characters, and loads of science information thrown in, this is a really captivating read. As a parent I enjoyed it and I was confident my boy would enjoy it also and he did. It was a real page turner!
Lewis: I liked this story a lot, found it hard to put it down as I wanted to keep reading to see what would happen next! It had tons of action, and was funny in parts as well. I would definitely recommend this book to my friends.
We would recommend this book for children aged 9 upwards.
