Team Hero: Battle for the Shadow Sword by Adam Blade
Genre: Middle Grade
TOTAL RATING: 3.6 STARS
Hero Academy is no ordinary school, and Jack is no ordinary student. The evil underground realm of Noxx is about to invade – now Jack and his friends must unite as Team Hero to save the world.
Team Hero is a series of Middle Grade Chapter book series from the same author collaboration as Beast Quest.
With strange scaly hands, Jack’s always been an outcast but turns out his hands give him incredible strength and when he saves some people on a school trip, he’s approached by a woman who offers him a new chance and new school where hi talents could flourish.
The series has spawned nearly 20 books in the Team Hero world and I found it perfect for reluctant readers or readers who struggle to read. Quickly paced, with simple language usage and terminology it brings a fun, action packed story similar to a Marvel movie on the page.
Would highly recommend for younger Middle Grade readers who are into superheros, or schools for special powers.
