What the Critics Say

"As in the earlier installments, the book is chock-full of excitement and suspense from the first page to the last. It starts with a bomb at a nuclear plant in India, and along the way there is a charity black-tie card game, poison needles, car crashes, bullets, and exploding gel pens. Most of the backstory is explained, so no prior knowledge of the earlier books is necessary. Great for reluctant readers." (School Library Journal)

    "Hard to turn off"

    I love adventure reading, and the Alex Rider series fits in my listening library right next to Clive Cussler. I will end up listening to all of this series.

    "Well written YA novel"

    This is a step above most YA books as far as the quality of the story, the characters, and the writing skill.

    The story is strong and holds interest all the way to the end, and Simon Prebble offers a typical great performance.

    "Fairly good. Easy to listen to."

    Exciting and keeps you interested. I like how much of it was based in England, with only the end being abroad. Probably as good as most of the previous books, but not outstanding (as Scorpia was). Narrator reads well, BUT despite being read by an English person, it was the American version of the book, so there were a few things I found irritating (why would characters be spending dollars or dialling 911 while in London?).

    "Why the Americanisms?"

    London prices all in dollars? In emergencies dial 911? Sidewalk? Why on earth is this the US version? I'm assuming there are two versions. And even if this is just a US version, are American children too stupid to understand that other countries have different currencies? Talk about dumbing down. Very disappointed as these glaring errors really do spoil the flow and break the tension of the story. Please give us UK versions Audible.
