Skeleton Key is not number 3

ISBN: 0142401021 Skeleton Key by Anthony Horowitz may be the third book in the series but is not number three. This one would win the gold out of the Alex Rider books. You're probably thinking that Alex Rider goes on another mission for MI6 like the other two. Well, that's only partially correct. Because he teams up with two CIA agents from the U.S.A. to stop some crazy guy, Sarov, with a nuclear weapon. I really liked this book because there was a lot of action and I also like James Bond movies. If you have read any of the Alex Rider books or Spy High you will defiantly love this book.

Skeleton Key

The story I read was Skeleton Key. The author is Anthony Horowitz. The main characters were Alex Rider and a guy named Sarvo. The setting is in Russia. The story is based on a teenager who is spy with M-I 6, British intelligence. The problem with Alex is that the guy named Sarvo wants to adopt him. Alex does not want to be adopted. Alex is trying to get away, and Sarvo is getting mad. Sarvo tries to kill Alex. Does he get away? You have to read the book to find out. I think the book is very will written. If I could give it a 1 out 10 rating, 10 being the best I would give Skeleton Key a 9.5. The reason I liked this book is because I like James Bond. I also like all the cool gadgets he gets. This book's audience I think would be people who like James Bond and people who like action books and movies.

The best book in a brilliant series...

Skeleton Key, the sequel to Stormbreaker and Point Blanc, is surely the best book in this gripping teen spy series. Before you read it, however, make sure you read the others first so as to understand the story.Just a month after his previous adventure at an exclusive school in the French Alps, sixteen-year-old Alex Rider is attempting to return to a normal life in London. But this is a wish quickly forgotten as an M16 agent recruits him for a mission during a school soccer game.He is soon over in the USA, and taking on the role of the son of two up-tight and by-the-book CIA officers.Together, they must infiltrate the home of an ex-Russian army commander. Trouble is, his house is an island in Cuba and Americans aren't exactly welcome in that part of the world.Armed with some outrageous and extremely useful gadgets disguised as toys, Rider must soon try to win the trust of the Russian on his own, but finds himself in a seemingly losing battle against the rich and powerful man.Alex discovers the Russian's deadly plot to take over the world, but will a young boy be able to stop him?A terrific book that will having you struggle to put it down as you dive into the world of international spies, crazy military men and truly gripping suspense.I gave this book 5 stars, and it deserves 6, so read it now and find out why!
