[Anthony Horowitz's] writing keeps the reader constantly on the edge of their seat and Alex is a relatable and likeable character with enough depth to sustain the series ... Alex's character development inspires young readers to believe that not only can they find ways through whatever troubles they face, but by doing so they can emerge as heroes. * The National *
In truth there is an element of boyish fun in all his work, even when a murder is involved. In the Alex Rider series, about a teenager recruited by MI6, it is explicit, but there is a gleefulness about all his writing, a wry humour. * The Sunday Times & The Sunday Times Ireland *
