I had read the previous books in this series and couldn't wait to start this one and I was not disappointed it was equally as good if not better than the first two. It was so tense I could not put it down. Horowitz at his best I thoroughly recommend this and I think girls might enjoy it too. I had to hide it away from my brother!

This was my favourite in the series so far, as seemed to have more mystery and turns than the other stories. I even bought the next book as wanted to continue the story.

Alex Rider: Skeleton key

This book is about a teenage boy called Alex who is used by MI6. In this book he is recruited by the CIA in Cuba, to investigate an ex Russian general who is planning to use a nuclear bomb. In his other adventures (Stormbreaker and Point Blanc) he has near death experiences and this case is no different.

The main character in the story is Alex a 14 year old boy who works alone. The excellent description and story line make you want to carry on reading for hours. The main bad guy in the book is General Sarov who you can see was a good guy in the past, but the way modern life has taken over has beloved Russia has changed him to a man eager to end the Wests domination of his country.

I really enjoyed this book because I admire Alex and envy his secret life as a spy. I would recommend this book to all boys of my age, especially those who have enjoyed reading Tim Diamond books and Jack Stalwart books.

I started to read the series when I finished listening to the young James bond series of books. The books are good, but I have really got into the audio books. They are pretty graphic in places and this one is no exception. They are full of action and I love the twists in the story. The villains are good and I know Alex will always come out ok as there are more books.

Love this series of Books and I am listening to them as Audio books. A great way to spend the time on my way to school. This one is very thrilling and full of action. I like that Alex is a dramatic character and that he has amazing adventures. This series is very graphic and my Mum has stopped listening to them now as she says that sometimes they are a bit nasty!

This is the third Alex Rider book, Alex teams up with the C.I.A and travels to the island Skeleton Key.

The start of this Alex Rider has so much action that it grabs your attention. Later on there is an element of mystery in the story. 

The end of the book was a big surprise to me! I wasn't expecting it.

Savor is my favourite character, he is Russian and he plans everything perfectly. Another great adventure story.
