Very enjoyable and fun to listen to. The story is engaging and makes you want to listen right until the end. Packed with adventure and nail-biting moments. I will definitely be buying the next in the series!

Skeleton Key by Anthony Horowitz, because Alex Rider could give James Bond a good run for his money
Yes he is as good as ever and makes it come to life

A step up from the alex rider series in terms of character and story. Recommended for those who have started to tire of the incredible twists of alex rider.
