A Super Spy Sequel Suspense Story.
Excellent! After reading Point Blanc, the sequel to Stormbreaker, I was pleased that Anthony Horowitz decided to write another book. I have thoroughly enjoyed both of them. I highly recommend them to anyone who likes a good read and is a fan of James Bond and other spy books.
Point Blanc is about new MI6 agent Alex Rider, who is sent on a mission to investigate a French academy (Point Blanc), where the British Agency believes something is happening which shouldn't! Two millionaires who have died both have a son at the academy. Is this a coincidence, or something more sinister...?
In contrast to other spy stories however, Alex Rider is a fourteen-year-old school boy. The idea of sending a kid to do all of these dangerous missions is excitingly different and he goes armed with stereotyped teenage agent gadgets - which include metal-eating spot cream!
I think Point Blanc is aimed at older children (around 10-14 years). However I believe people with a good sense of humour and a wild imagination will enjoy the suspense and adventures of this teenage spy.
