To be honest, I was floored when I learnt that Jack Heath wrote The Lab in high school. Needless to say, most high school students, even the ones interested in writing, couldn't write something this coherent or interesting. At least, I haven't met any. It's definitely amusing, though, to look at the world Heath has built- only a few decades away- and compare it to the society we have now. It's not hard to find the modern-day sources of the futuristic ChaoSonic empire. Maybe that's another reason I liked The Lab.

Detective Bromham is a good cop in a bad city, sent alone to investigate a homicide. When a vengeful physicist captures Agent Six of Hearts and blasts him backwards through time, he has one chance to prevent her from unleashing a catastrophe. This bone-chilling tale was shortlisted for Best YA Short Story at the 2013 Aurealis Awards. Brent Coffee hasn’t seen his former classmate, Molly Sinclair, in nearly a decade, but all that changes when he shows up to fix her Wi-fi connection on St. Patrick’s.

Books related to The Lab. Skip this list. With exploding helicopters aplenty, this is a great read for teens and adults. Would be good to have a second book though.

The beginning of a fantastic new action, adventure series from a twenty-year-old author who knows how to thrill - now in paperback!Meet a 16-year-old superhuman

Sixteen-year-old agent Six of Hearts is the first human to be grown from designer DNA. He can run faster, jump higher and react more quickly than anyone else. Six escaped from his creators, a sinister underground organisation called "the Lab", when he was a baby. Now, he works for the Deck, a group of vigilantes who are trying to protect "the Code" - the moral values set down before the world descended into anarchy.

The start of a fantastic new action/adventure series from a 20-yr-old author who knows how to thrillIn a near-future world run by an evil corporation, the only justice comes from an organization called the Deck. Each agent in the deck belongs to a suit -- the Hearts and Diamonds are the operatives, the Clubs do the training, and the Spades monitor internal affairs. The hero is a 16-yr-old, Six of Hearts. (The highest ranking in each group is the King, and so forth, with the whole shebang led by the two Jokers). Six of Hearts is the best operative they have -- all the more impressive (and convenient for us) because he never kills anyone.

I highly recommend this book. This book is excellent, it's written very fast-paced (like the Matthew Reilly books) the action scenes are excellent and the characters well writen! I also recommend the sequel to it - Remote Control. A must read!!! Excellent, wonderful, thrilling book.

The Lab by Jack Heath was and exhilarating novel that kept you on the end of your seat. The imagery and literary devices that the Heath uses is amazing a creates a clear and detailed scene. I feel like I'm part of the book and in the eyes of the legendary Agent Six of Hearts. The connection the author creates between you and the character is strong and if anything bad happens to Agent Six, you almost feel what he feels. The only way an author can express this is through personal experience. Heath had to have gone through hard times in his life where he had to overcome many challenges. He truly expresses that within the novel. No ooey gooey romance stuff and thats the best part. The actions keeps this young spy operative very busy. He keeps the reader busy to! Wanting to know what happens next!

Meet Agent Six of Hearts. He's the strongest, fastest, most clever, and most effective member of a special group of field agents working in the Deck, a vigilante organization intent on establishing justice in a dangerous and corrupt world. Six is the best of the Deck's agents--and he's only sixteen. What the people at the Deck don't know, and can't find out, is that Six is the product of a genetic experiment by the Lab to create superhumans, the very kind of thing the Deck fights to prevent. When Six is assigned to investigate the Lab, he risks exposure. If the Deck learns of his identity, he'll likely be treated as a traitor and subsequently punished. And if the Lab discovers that Six is out and about, he knows he'll be pursued until capture. Either way, this is going to be Six's most dangerous mission yet.

The Lab starts with a dramatic action scene and continues to be action packed until the very last page. There are seriously very few pages in this novel that don't include a fight scene, chase scene, or danger. All this makes for an undoubtedly exciting and edge-of-your-seat suspense filled story that is quite difficult to put down. As with many purely action novels, the book starts to break down with characterization. Protagonist Six is superhuman, and unfortunately, a cold and distant personality results from it. Six's inability to relate to the normal humans around him makes him almost inhuman and inaccessible to the reader. Heath does attempt to develop Six's character, but it's a little sloppy, especially at first. Six's questioning of this identity, origins, and their significance is awkward and out of place amidst the nearly constant danger Six is usually immersed in. Since this novel is primarily action based, this isn't a big deal since the plot is more than enough to keep the reader interested and satisfied.

The Lab will be enjoyed by fans of other futuristic action packed novels such as Skinned by Robin Wasserman, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, and Unwind by Neal Shusterman. I can't wait to check out the sure to be exciting sequel, Remote Control.

Agent Six of Hearts works to save innocent people and uncover the truth. He participates in many dangerous missions, often getting himself nearly killed. But Agent Six has never failed a mission -- and he's only sixteen years old.

But that isn't why Agent Six seems to be so perfect. The truth is that Agent Six was made to have almost super-human powers, to be a killing machine. And now Agent Six must save his country and also hide from the corrupted government officials who are trying to find their super-killers that they created.

Jack Heath writes a mysterious and action-packed novel that is sure to please any 007 fans. He creates a world where people are terrified under a suppressive government and it's up to The Deck, a super-secret organization, to save the innocent civilians and uncover the government's secrets.

With a cliffhanger at the end, THE LAB is sure to be the next Alex Rider series...

It's true that the action doesn't stop in this novel. From page one to the last page the book goes and goes and goes, and there barely is time to stop to take a breath. That being said, this book has some flaws. The book introduces a lot of concepts that it doesn't really go into depth about. The story is set against the backdrop of the future where something bad has happened. That's pretty much all you know in this book. Somewhere there are pieces of the exposition that seem left out.

The action sequences (and there were a ton of them) were good, but the fact that there were so many sort of slowed the story down. That may just be my personal reading taste, but it just seemed like... "Here we go again with another action scene." I like action as much as anyone else, I'm a huge fan of James Bond and the novels of James Rollins and Jeremy Robinson, but there is a point where you want a break in the action.

That being said, I don't think this book is a bad book. It did have some interesting elements to it, and some of the action scenes were inventive. I do want to read the sequel to see if there is more of the story of this future.
