I'm breaking a taboo in this first paragraph to say how much I am enjoying this series for "children" (10 and up). Actually, anyone who enjoys a great spy thriller and very little outright graphic violence would absolutely LOVE this series. Not since Harry Potter have I had such fun!

"Skeleton Key" is the third in the series about Alex Rider, a 14-year-old English school boy, who works as a spy for M16, the U.S.'s equivalent of the CIA. Not that he wants to work as a spy--oh no, he does not, but M16 manages to entangle him every time in a new episode in which, bottom line, he saves the world. That's three times now that he has done so.

The first time was "Stormbreaker," set in the Cornish coast of England, involving a computer scheme unlike any you have heard of. Alex triumphs spectacularly! The second time was "Point Blank," set in an elite school for highly privileged and troubled youth. The school is set on Point Blank in Switzerland. Another, no, make that two spectacular endings in this book!

Let me say that what Anthony Horowitz creates for Alex to know and do are truly preposterous--if you logically examine the plot, but, I'm telling you also truthfully, that Horowitz's skill at writing is such that the reader believes these things CAN happen. Example: Alex must board a departing yacht and does so on skateboard by ramping up a plank, hurtling through air, just barely grasping the handrail, and pulling himself up and over. Allow me to explain: In book one, Horowitz laid the back story to show that Alex was trained in many areas by his uncle, who was a M16 spy, unbeknownst to Alex.

In Book Three, "Skeleton Key," Alex's new assignment is working with two agents from the CIA to explore a mansion on the tip of an island, Skeleton Key, owned by a retired Soviet general, who has serious hanky-panky in mind. It involves uranium and an atomic bomb.

The yacht-leaping takes place in this story. However, Alex is thwarted several times in this adventure, showing the reader that Alex cannot elude every case of danger.

An atomic bomb, world domination, a mad general, and one more put-together Frankenstein assistant. Can a 14-year-old boy handle those? That is absolutely the fun of reading this series--you know he will, but you don't know how!

Highly recommended!!

This is a series that needs to be read in order for the back story, which builds with each book. To begin:

1. Alex Rider: Stormbreaker tie-in novel (Alex Rider Movie)
2. Point Blank (Alex Rider Adventures)
There are currently eight books in the series. Horowitz plans a total of ten.

This one is enough to make you hate every bit of arrogant posturing that some Russians have ever pulled off. The contrast even in temperament and personality type between the nemesis - a former Soviet general - and Alex is truly striking, and is made all the more so by the general's surprising request to adopt Alex as his son to replace the son he lost in Afghanistan. To put it in a nutshell, the general admires what Alex does - he is every whit as versatile as the general's late son - but in the end rejects what Alex is, with tragic consequences. Oh, and along the way Western Europe almost becomes a radioactive wasteland - because the general would have it so (and wants Alex to acquiesce, one way or another).

In other words, I loved this graphic novel, so I won't give away any more of its plot.

This book is about Alex Rider a 14 year old teenage spy. M16 picked him up after his uncle was killed by a man named Yassen Gregorvich a contract killer. In the book Alex is given a weekend get away to CUBA. Supposedly Alex is just there to stand as the child of two other agents from the CIA. But Later he finds out that this is not a regular mission this is a mission that could save the world. There is supposedly some nuclear material on an island they call Skeleton key. And after the disappearance of two men selling uranium the mission becomes more dangerous. Later Alex goes scuba diving with his "Parent's" and finds out later that they have been killed. Fro that point on Alex is kept hostage by a man named Alexei Sarov and his assistant Conrad.

As I have been reading the series of Alex Rider this book is getting me hype for next book which I will reading soon as I can but I recommended to a friend or anyone who like spy anyways this was very good.

My teenage daughter had to have this book. She's read each of the Alex Rider series books several times! She can't get enough. Talks about them all the time. Great to keep our youth reading.

Bought the series for my 13 year old son. He just finished Skeleton Key an thinks it is the best so far. I think it appeals to him because Alex is about the same age participating in incredibly exciting, adult spy situations and he is the one saving the adults. Lots of action! My son would be considered a reluctant reader and with 327 pages I was surprised he finished as quickly as he did.

My 11 year old loves graphic novels. This looked intriguing and the reviews sounded great. So glad I purchased. He loved it. I recommend this for reluctant readers. Any boy who struggles with reading or does not like to read, hand them an appropriate graphic novel. My son's teacher said, "Who cares at this point that it is a graphic novel, he is reading!" So true.
This was given as a gift. My grandchildren love it.
