'As ever, the plotting is meticulous and the pace relentless, but what is new is Alex's dawning compassion for other children.' - New Statesman
'Pacy and ingenious, as usual, this novel demonstrates a high level of philosophical complexity as it considers the nature of cults, religious extremism and our responsibility for each other, as well as involving karate, explosions and jumping out of planes.' - Nicolette Jones, The Sunday Times & The Sunday Times Ireland
'Anthony Horowitz is second to none at writing page-turners that children are desperate to read. Now he's back with Nightshade, his 12th gripping adventure about teenage superspy Alex Rider.' - Emma Lee Potter, Sunday Express (S Magazine)
'Fizzling with suspense, Nightshade is fast paced and thrilling - a delight for newcomers and old fans alike. It's difficult to keep up the momentum in a series that began two decades ago, but once again Horowitz proves he is a master of his craft. Hopefully, this is not the last we shall see of teen hero Alex Rider.' - Megan Baynes, Belfast Telegraph'It's a chunky book and all the better for it. Filled with the usual pulse-quickening adventures from the teen super-spy, expect your young readers to disappear inside it's pages entirely. Great.' - Angels & Urchins
