Description: Product Description
This is an explosive graphic novel adaptation of Alex Rider's third thrilling mission. Reluctant teenage superspy Alex Rider is useful to M16 in ways an adult could never be. Now they need his help once again. But a routine reconaissance mission at the Wimbledon Tennis Championships sets off a terrifying chain of events for Alex that sees him on the run from a murderous Chinese triad gang. Forced to hide out, Alex is sent to Cayo Esqueleto - Skeleton Key - an island near Cuba. Waiting for him there is General Alexei Sarov - a coldly insane Russian with explosive plans to rewrite history. Alex faces his most dangerous challenge yet. Alone, and equipped only with a handful of gadgets, Alex must outwit Sarov as the seconds tick away towards the end of the world. "Stormbreaker" - the hit 2006 movie - awakened a whole new army of Alex Rider fans, eager for more thrilling spy adventures. The follow-up to "Point Blanc: The Graphic Novel" which was selected in 2008 by the School Librarian's Association as a Riveting Read for Boys in the government's Boys into Books scheme. Featuring full-colour, Manga-style art, this graphic novel is ideal for encouraging reluctant readers.
