Jim Eldridge

The Malichea Quest, Book 1

Bloomsbury (2012)

ISBN: 978-1-4088-1719-3

Reviewed by Lorraine Cormack

The Invisible Assassin is the first in a young adult series. It’s a pretty good book for its intended audience; it’s not outstanding or particularly memorable, but it’s well enough written and is an original (if not very well worked out) idea.

Jake Wells is a trainee press officer for the Department of Science (in Britain). He has overcome a less than privileged background to get the job, and is determined to make the most of it. Mostly it’s not very interesting or very difficult, because he doesn’t have the university degree or the background “required” to get the sensitive jobs. But now Jake’s been assigned to a protest – a fairly dopey one, true – but if he handles the protest and the protestors well, he thinks he might be handed something more challenging next time.
