Review quote

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) * Anthony Horowitz is on cracking form here: the plot is gripping, the characters - both familiar and new - are fully fleshed, and it sparkles with his characteristic wit. We could do with Alex Rider now . . . -- Sally Morris * The Daily Mail * 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 its pages entirely. Great. * Angels & Urchins *
