    The argument with her best friend Billie felt strange – fifteen year old Natalie had never had a fight with her, so why this time? And what caused it? But that was put out of her mind when someone tried to break into her darkened home. Natalie was on her own as her Dad was at work and Billie had left in a huff; but she knew she had to get away, especially when she saw what was happening to the front door. The storm she dashed into was wild and frightening, but it covered her tracks – didn’t it? N The argument with her best friend Billie felt strange – fifteen year old Natalie had never had a fight with her, so why this time? And what caused it? But that was put out of her mind when someone tried to break into her darkened home. Natalie was on her own as her Dad was at work and Billie had left in a huff; but she knew she had to get away, especially when she saw what was happening to the front door. The storm she dashed into was wild and frightening, but it covered her tracks – didn’t it? Natalie’s sudden direction toward Melbourne on the late night train was rushed – but she knew she was on the right track. Would she make it to her destination in time though? Code name Nomad, she joined her fellow cadets in the most important schooling of her life. HELIX was to be her new home; the danger was the Inductors. Because Nomad was a Witness and her gifts were more powerful than the majority of other Agents. With a suddenness that shocked her, Nomad found herself joining her fellow cadets in a race against the clock – the eleventh hour was fast approaching… Wow! What a brilliant start to a new series! Agent Nomad – The Eleventh Hour by Aussie author Skye Melki-Wegner is the first in the Agent Nomad series and I’m blown away! A young adult fantasy novel, it ticked all the right boxes for me. Lots of action, fast paced and great characters – what’s not to love! I’ll be reading Agent Nomad #2: Deadly Magic, very soon. Highly recommended!

    Spies. Secrets. Sorcery. I was pretty surprised with this book, it wasn't the greatest but i really did enjoy this book it was a quick, easy and fast paced story. I enjoyed all the characters they were all well-written, the story was action packed and moved very quickly which i really enjoyed. I learnt so much in such a short amount of pages and i do hope that this gets another book because i would like to see where this series goes. Spies. Secrets. Sorcery.

    A very enjoyable, fast paced ride! I really liked the recognizable settings in both country Victoria and Melbourne, and then London. Great characters and plot twists, just as I've come to expect from this talented author. Really accessible and fun for upper primary though to the young at heart. A very enjoyable, fast paced ride!

    Contemporary young-YA chosen-one magical-war urban fantasy based in Australia. I found this more formulaic than Melki-Wegner's previous books, which tempered my enjoyment a little. Still, the pages kept turning and I enjoyed the read. Contemporary young-YA chosen-one magical-war urban fantasy based in Australia.

    Hmm, need to chat about this one. But it is exciting, and offers something different to the kid-with-powers trope.

    It's always great to read YA. It kinda cleanses the pallet. This 1st book was great for a couple of reasons. It's still paranormal(ish), it's set here in Melbourne, and ok the kids are sorcerers, but its not hmm over the top stupidity. The kids are 15ish and they are cadets. They don't automatically have magic and know how to use it. Any who I liked it. I bought 1 & 2 just in case. On to 2 :) It's always great to read YA. It kinda cleanses the pallet.

    This was an enjoyable fast read, at times I thought 'yeah predictable' but then the plot would twist. Did not predict the ending. Will read the 2nd book. One question...Do the Beefeaters guard Buckingham Palace? I think they might be called the Queen's Guard. The Yeomen are the Beefeaters at the Tower.

    Honestly, I wanted to like this as it was set in Australia (I'm Australian), I enjoy young adult fantasy, and 'magic school' type books are a guilty pleasure. But… I got bored and couldn't finish it; tried twice and didn't get close either time, and that's despite skimming large chunks.

    4.5 ⭐ for a very enjoyable read that I absolutely loved! Skye Melki-Wegner built up another amazing world, not quite as good as Chasing the Valley but still amazing. I like the many twists that really made the story great for me and surprised me so much. A great book I can only recommend!

    3 1/2 stars. Fun but lightweight and a little predictable.

    Love the Melbourne setting. Plenty of action and good world building. A couple of twists I didn't see coming. Love the Melbourne setting. Plenty of action and good world building. A couple of twists I didn't see coming.

    Rating: 3.5 I'm a long-term fan of Skye Melki-Wegner's. I have signed copies of all of her books, and I recommend them to students all of the time. That been said, I was a bit disappointed by The Eleventh Hour. Where Skye's writing is normally seamless and flowing, this novel wasn't. Especially in the beginning, where everything about the set-up felt forced. I can't help but feel that setting this novel in the real world wasn't the best move. Skye's own worlds feel so real, but this one didn't. Rating: 3.5 I'm a long-term fan of Skye Melki-Wegner's.

Eventually, things did get better and the novel really started to flow, but I still don't feel that it was a strong as her earlier novels. I'll still be reading Agent Nomad #2: Deadly Magic, and looking out for Skye's next novels, but I do have to say that I was a little disappointed in The Eleventh Hour.

    Melki-Wegner has done it again... She has a knack for writing fast paced stories that are absorbing for Young Adults of all ages. Love the interactions between the various characters and their quirkiness. Love the surprise elements that are woven into the story line. Love the unique and believable magic system. Can't wait for the next in the series... Melki-Wegner has done it again... She has a knack for writing fast paced stories that are absorbing for Young Adults of all ages.
