What’s the basic story line?

Zeke starts out as your average 12-year-old. He goes through the days doing the same thing, rarely doing anything different, until a new family moves in across the street. The next day, his life changes forever when he learns his new friend is a spy and that he is trying to save the world from being brainwashed by the villain Ragnarok, who has tubes of magma pumping over his skin to stay alive.

Are the characters believable?

The characters are believable. Zeke appears to be a normal kid whose life is shaken up a bit when he is thrown into the middle of a spy war. The villains are believable to some extent. They are a little farfetched, though entertaining.

On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being best), how would you rate this book?

I would rate this book a 7. The author does a good job of explaining what Zeke’s life is like. The beginning pulls the reader in and keeps him hooked with action-packed events throughout. The story line had me nervous, sad and excited to see what would happen next.
