A new action-packed adventure series for young fans of Alex Rider and Jason Bourne--with the first four books publishing simultaneously. Binge read for summer!

Following the nail-biting cliff-hanger of Bodyguard 1: Recruit, the action resumes in Hostage as martial arts expert and trained bodyguard Connor Reeves battles to protect the US president’s daughter, Alicia, from mortal danger . . . even if it means putting his own life at risk.

Connor is her last line of defense—an invisible shield kept secret from everyone, including the First Daughter herself. Yet danger lurks around every corner, and the terrorist plot to kidnap Alicia is already under way, the net tightening as the enemy prepares to strike.

Combining pulse-pounding action, diabolical enemies, and an insider's knowledge of the tricks of the trade, the BODYGUARD series is the perfect target for fans of Alex Rider, James Bond, 24, and Jason Bourne.

“Breathtaking action . . . as real as it gets.”—Eoin Colfer, author of the bestselling Artemis Fowl series

    This is an amazing book, full of suprises. This is the second book that follows from the nail-biting cliffhanger from the previous book. Connor earns Alicia's trust again, and in the end of this book, there is a little suprise! No one can be trusted, as we learn that a secret service agent isn't loyal anymore, nor is Alicia's best friends...

      A satisfying pick up from the cliffhanger the last book ended on, this book begin right in the action. We get to see Connor develop further as well as the First Daughter. This book brought me to unexpected tears at times as well as proud and patriotic. I loved the alternate present it provided with President Mendez. Told through multiple POVs, the conclusion to his first mission pulled together in a gratifying bam. The book hardly slows down and tears through scenes. The writing is easy and to the point, although there is a fair amount of violence. I finished this book in a few hours. A fun, exhilarating summer read.
