Sean Yeager books are written to inspire and excite readers. I often hear feedback from parents and I ask what their child likes and 'why?' Here are some highlights.
If you are considering buying a book for a child in your life (7 to 14) take a look at a free sample of the first chapters: DNA Thief and Hunters Hunted under the 'READ' section.
Verbal feedback about DNA Thief:
Mike: My son (10 years) raved about the DNA Thief, he said it was the best book he's read. He loved the action and insisted on writing his own Amazon review. He's quite selective about what he reads and he took his time reading it because he didn't want to miss anything. I was taken aback, we'll buy the second book as a special present.
Alison: Our son (9 years) was up until late reading DNA Thief and he wouldn't put it down. He finished the book within two days. He says it's his second favourite to Percy Jackson. He loves all the gear and gizmos. He asked if there can be more machines and gear in the next book? He wants to know what happens next.
Anne: My son (8 years) read both books from cover to cover in a few days. He's now read it twice and raves about the characters. He's been designing pictures of craft and bases inspired by the book. He can't wait to read the third book. He's asked if there can be more jokes and lots of incidents. He loves the characters and wants to know more about what happens next.
Here are some Amazon.co.uk reviews in the words of the reviewers:
It is sci-fi and an action thriller rolled into one, and centres on Sean Yeager, who believes he is fairly ordinary until a burglary at his home reveals he is anything but. The boy is spirited away by a protector he didn't know he had - The Foundation. From there the plot unravels at terrific speed, and reveals secrets about Sean's Dad and his own status.
My only comment would be that the title and cover graphics might not be as enticing to kids as they should be - this book deserves to be read! The other character names, such as Major Clavity and Greerbo - are certainly spot on.
Both tongue-in-cheek and seat-of-your-trousers thrilling, it is cleverly written 'take' on the 'Boy Fights World' philosophy of more well known titles and, in my view, stands up just as well. Love2readuk
There was so much action in this fast-paced thrill ride that I kept seeing it as a movie in my head. Never sure where the story was going, I decided to sit back and enjoy the ride. What would have helped was to have put on some popcorn first! Although I understand that this is the first in the series I wanted to know more about Sean and indeed his mom who is quite the character and I laughed every time she shows up. I hope we see more of her in the series. What I also really liked was the fact that the bad guys really are bad guys and not some laughable buffoons like we tend to see in so many other kid stories.

Sean Yeager and the DNA Thief is a fast-moving action-packed novel containing lots of exciting, humorous and thrilling scenes. This book is a must-read and a worthy competitor for James Bond. The story is about an organisation that has set out to protect a boy named Sean Yeager, who has special powers. Although he is only a boy, a lot of trouble was spent to kidnap and protect him and it's fun finding out why. This book has really excited me and I can't wait until the next book comes out!:-) LavaMitts
And a review I particularly enjoyed receiving from Goodreads USA:
I will put this book into my reading cupboard for my high school students as they will enjoy it. This story had action and an interesting storyline and I want to know what is going to happen to Sean and why he is so important to the Founder. How do I get this next book? A, Goodreads
