Skeleton Key (Paperback)
Working as a secret agent for Britain's most exclusive agency, Alex Rider has seen it all. He's been shot at by international terrorists, stood face-to-face with pure evil, and saved the world--twice. But fifteen-year-old Alex is about to face something more dangerous than he can imagine: A man who's lost everything he cared for--his country, his son--a man who has a nuclear weapon, and will stop at nothing to get his world back. Unless Alex can stop him first...
The Novice may seem like the traditional hero fantasy adventure book, but is far more complex and full of many more charachters (good and bad) which contribute to the fast and rocky plot full of pot holes. The traditional hero part of this story attracts many readers while the excellent story telling by Matharu leaves us wanting mroe. - Kaitlyn, customer age 12
