Whoa! In a fast-paced thrill ride of a read by author B.B. Gallagher, Project Sparta will have readers on the edge of their seats from the start through to the very last page! Following the story of protagonist Xander Whitt, a young prodigy with skills the US government finds extremely interesting, he and nine others like them are developed into one of the most important weapons the government has ever possessed. Five years after the start of Project Sparta, Xander finds himself hunting Agent Zero, a terrorist threatening a major attack on our nation's capital. Xander and his fellow recruits work together to track down Agent Zero, but what they discover changes everything. Is Agent Zero truly one of them, and if so, what does that mean for their mission?

I very much enjoyed Project Sparta. Author B.B. Gallagher has created an exciting world with characters that are somehow fantastic and believable at the same time. As a fan of fiction for young adults, I found this read to be extremely high quality for the genre, and also felt that adult readers would enjoy this creative and unique story as well. Full of twists and turns, action and adventure, Project Sparta would appeal to anyone looking for a read that will hook them from the get-go, young adult or not. I highly recommend this book, and look forward to reading more from the highly talented author, B.B. Gallagher, as soon as I possibly can.

In Project Sparta by B.B. Gallagher, Xander Whitt was recruited into Project Sparta when he was just a teenager. Project Sparta is a heavily funded, off the books programme where teenagers are transformed into superior spies. Along with nine others, Xander was gradually crafted into one of America's most efficient defence machines. Years later, Xander is now on what would turn out to be the most challenging assignment of his career. He is facing the possibility of an enemy who is smart, most cunning and ruthless, and bent on causing endless terror on American soil - Agent Zero. Soon Xander discovers that Agent Zero is a defector from the Sparta Project who now has recruits from extremist groups ready to do his bidding, and also has connections and support from someone high up in government. Xander needs the help of all Spartans, but without knowing the identity of Agent Zero he does not know who to trust. How do you protect your country against a seemingly invisible enemy who is always three steps ahead you?

Project Sparta is a captivating story with a fresh spin on how spy tales are told. It is an adrenaline-pumping thrill as Xander Whitt races to stop the deadliest enemy America has ever seen. By telling the story from both the present and past point of view, B.B. Gallagher enabled the reader to have more insight into the characters and the plot and made the story more engaging without stalling. Another unique part of this book is the way the characters were introduced. Irrespective of how big or small their part in the story, B.B. Gallagher made all the characters memorable. He made them feel like real people and not just mere fragments of a bigger story, thereby making them more relatable without distracting from the main plot. Project Sparta by B.B. Gallagher is a fast-paced and compelling combination of super spy meets super terrorist, guaranteed to give fans of stories in this genre an amazing reading thrill.
