Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review I enjoyed it a lot because I wanted to read on and see the methods he would use and the ways he thought of to escape. -- Stelios Gavrielides Teen Titles I loved this book because it is suspenseful and serious with a splash of humour. It has such a variety of character personalities and it's just as good as the other books in the Alex Rider series, which I'm really enjoying reading my way through. -- First News First News I loved this book because it is suspenseful and serious with a splash of humour. -- First News First News A fabulous story that crackles with suspense and daring and shows that a bit of cheek will take you a very long way [...] A great, pacy read. Love Reading 4 Kids Even though there are no illustrations, the brilliant descriptions really bring the story to life. When I read it I really feel into the scenes and I always want to know what will happen next. -- Young Reviewer The Guardian Online
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 5 stars (out of 5)
