Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

As in Stormbreaker: The Graphic Novel (2006), rapid-fire action, appealing manga-style artwork, and a heavy reliance on the James Bond formula drive this second graphic adaptation of Horowitz’s best-selling Alex Rider books. The plot maintains the basic premise of the eponymous novel, published in 2002: Rider, a 14-year-old British spy, is sent to a mysterious Swiss boarding school to investigate the nefarious plot of its headmaster. With clear lines and carefully toned coloring, the art makes the most of the creepy castle setting, twisting passages, gadgets, and death-defying snowboard escapes, while the mix of perspectives and panel sizes helps to reveal clues in quick succession. Suspense builds right up until the terrifying conclusion, which, because it involves body doubles, has high impact in this visual format, which showcases the mirror effects. A sure hit with both fans and newcomers, particularly reluctant readers. Grades 6-9. --Gillian Engberg

This was a most interesting, well-told and well-drawn story. It's only the second of the series I've seen (the other being STORMBREAKER, the original). Of course, I shouldn't have been surprised by the essentially unrealistic premise or the classic monologuing (sp.?) of the mad villain, but I was pleasantly surprised by the other twists and turns of the plot (which are, no pun intended, chilling in various ways). Alex nearly buys the farm more than once (one of the times being when he finds himself overmatched as a martial artist by the chief villainess), but it's good to have good friends around at such times.

"Most schoolboys dream of being a spy. Alex is a spy who dreams of being a schoolboy." Well said, Mr. Stuffy MI6 Director. :) And we find out by the end just how true that is - Alex comes to a turning point in his mind about his destiny, however long that state of mind lasts.

My son is a reluctant reader, but he loves graphics novels and all of the alex rider series. He would read one of the Alex Rider books and then I would buy the graphic novel after he finished. My only wish is that all the books in the series had graphic novels.

Alex Rider series are always my favorite. I'll buy anything that lined as Alex Rider anyway. Well, this book is kinda good. They represented and followed what in the book quite well, but not entirely.

This was the first of the three Alex Rider graphic novels that my 11-year old read, and although it is not the first in the series it was a great one to begin with. Alex Rider goes undercover at a Swiss Boarding School and discovers that the school has an evil purpose. The setting is great, and having Alex interact with a group of wealthy kids was a lot of fun! The illustrations are really well-done and my son, and many others, find them an improvement on the original novels. Highly recommended for tween boys and teens!

I love this book before they made the graphic novel. And I love the graphic novel also! I can't wait until Eagle Strike comes out in graphic novel version!!!
