The Lab Rating: 3


Author: Jack Heath

The world has become corrupt. There is no government and no police to enforce the law. A cruel organization called ChaoSonic holds authority over the city, watching people’s every move and preventing anyone from escaping.


Agent Six of Hearts

A top secret team of special agents known as the Deck strives to bring justice to the city. Agent Six of Hearts is the cream of the crop—he’s the toughest, fastest, strongest agent in the Deck. And he’s only 16 years old. Six of Hearts is a sole operator. He’s rude and short with everyone who tries to show him kindness. But he has a gentle heart—despite his 100% mission success rate, he has never killed a soul. But what happens when he must kill someone to protect his own life?


A Deadly Mission

It’s hard to hide your identity when you’re nearly indestructible. And now the Lab is after him. You see, Agent Six of Hearts isn't exactly human. He’s the product of an experiment performed by the Lab, and now they want him back. If the Deck were to learn the truth about his identity, both he and the King of the Deck would be finished. Six of Hearts has a dangerous mission ahead, but he doesn’t have to go it alone. He has Kyntak, a boy who was born during the same Lab experiment.


The Bottom Line

In the beginning, The Lab by Jack Heath is extremely hard to follow. It’s not until the second of five acts, or “Mission Two,” that the story really starts to take shape. Think of the Alex Rider series with a little less personality. Boys will enjoy the action sequences, but the book won’t appeal to too many girls.
