A Blog A Day – Black Knight by Andy Briggs – Review & Giveaway

Dev and his friends are back with more mind-bending tech in this third installment of the Inventory series. The World Consortium is recruiting more agents to defend the most advanced technology the world isn’t ready for, and it’s up to Dev, Lottie and Mase to train them up for action. But will they be ready before Shadow Helix’s next strike? And has Dev uncovered all the secrets of his past, or is there more to know about his special abilities?

What I Thought:
I had the privilege of taking part in the blog tour for the second book in The Inventory series, Gravity, and now the third instalment, Black Knight is here!

I was happy to heap praise on Gravity (and the first book, Iron Fist) and I am equally happy to do so here – this is a fantastic trilogy, full of adventure and guaranteed to interest even the most reluctant of readers. The original crew of Dev, Lot and Mase are joined by some new team members, with a brand new set of skills – but is all as it seems?

We also again meet Lee, that most charistmatic of villains, and discover new things about his agenda and are introduced to a sleeping giant of an enemy – could we see The Inventory and Shadow Helix join forces against this common threat in the next book??? We shall see, but rest assured a fourth book is on the way.

I really enjoy this series, as it reminds me a little of the TV show Warehouse 13 – which I loved – and also has some great sci-fi/steampunk elements, but it is also a human story, with Dev, Lot and Mason and their friendship and teamwork at the centre, so as exciting as the book is, there are moments that are quite introspective. It makes for a good mix.

Black Knight (and The Inventory series) is published by Scholastic. You can find out more about Andy Briggs and the series on his website, and you can also connect with him on Twitter.
