I recommend this book to anyone over the age of 11 because it is a very interesting, action packed book, which involves bombs, fire and shooting. I am certain that adults will also love this adventurous novel. I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series sometime soon. -- Young Reviewer * The Guardian Online * [Skeleton Key] is a brilliant book: it is fun and inspires you to read more and when you've started it's a great book to get into. [...] This book was shocking at some parts and it thrilled me with excitement. -- Young Reviewer * Books for Keeps *

In this book Alex finds himself tackled by a Chinese gang which leads him to be shipped to 'safety'... into the hands of the CIA.
Posing as the son of a couple of American spies, Alex finds himself faced with a number of challenges, each more difficult and complicated than the last. Thanks to the wonderful Mr Smithers who provides fantastic gadgets, Alex is able to make a monumental achievement and save the world again... before he has to return to normal life at school.
An excellent read and a real page-turner!
I'm am really getting into the series now because this book splits into to adventures although they both flow and are both the same adventure but seem to be in different places. This book is perfect for any 9-15 year old but some grown-ups find they love it too .
This book is great for boys and girls looking for page turners. The author has put a few little twists in the title but I found inside it was much better than the title gives away. This is a book that is full of new criminal gangsters and new operators and lots and lots of guns,pistols and gadgets.... Enjoy!!!
The above review was written by my 9 yr old daughter who loves the Alex Rider series and has previously reviewed Point Blanc.
My son loves graphic novels and these books do remain faithful to the original storyline, plus the books have excellent artwork. Anything which encourages children to read is fantastic; so if your child is daunted by longer novels, then possibly graphic novels could be the way to get them interested in books. Of course, they should be enjoyed just for what they are – which is good and exciting reads, with lots of child appeal.
As for giving any kind of literary appraisal, I am afraid that not having read any of the book myself, I cannot make comment.
One thing I hate is a confusing book but It wasn't at all confusing! Alex Rider is made to play the part of a son to a lady and man he'd never met before, which was very entertaining. He nearly gets killed by a shark and by a slicing machine! And he is offered a future that would change everything. But should he listen to the evil madman or help MI6?
I recommend this book to 9-15! There is a lot of violence in it but I like that! Buy it! You'll enjoy it
