Point Blank
Alex Rider has a problem. He has been forced into a case where two completely different famous adults die (or are they murdered?) on the same day. Alex is taken to Point Blanc Boarding School for boys whose parents are famous and don’t have time for their drop-out sons. Alex pretends to be the son of the famous supermarket chain owner, David Friend. At his stay, Alex encounters guards with huge machine guns, the strongest women in the world, and a man who has the cleverest brain on earth, which he is going to use to take over the world. Or can Alex stop him first? This book is no different than the first book: great writing, so descriptive, action-packed, and really epic.

Skeleton Key
Teen superspy Alex Rider has angered an illegal triad federation and has to be put into hiding. At the same time, he joins with some CIA agents to pretend that they are a family. While the agents are away, Alex spends time at the 5-star hotel where the CIA has booked them each a suite. But Alex has a feeling in his gut that tells him that he needs to investigate (even though he has no idea what is going on). And when the agents don’t come back to where they were investigating, Alex knows it is time for him to take action. Read about how Alex stops a mad man who has lost everything he cared for, from his country to his son, and who will stop at nothing to get what he wants. But can Alex catch this mad man? In addition to the other books in the series that I have read so far, I would definitely recommend this book to my friends. Even though I already love reading, this book series so far has made me love reading even more.
