Be prepared to be hooked onto Lionboy: The Chase like a fish on a fishing line.
Charlie Ashanti is contented, for now. Relaxing luxuriously under the care of King Boris from Bulgaria – why shouldn’t he be? But Charlie still has two missions to accomplish, finding his parents and taking six breath snatching lions back to their homeland. Imprisoned by Edward, King Boris’ security guard Charlie and the lions, now accompanied by Primo, a sabre toothed creature constructed from fosilised DNA, devise an escape plan that involves many more people than you could imagine…
With an original setting that rivals even the Alex Rider series ( you can read my reviews on them), Lionboy: The Chase has a plot as wide a room, and is the second book in the Lionboy series by Zizou Corder. There are numerous changes to where Charlie has to travel to meet his parents, and each time he goes to the wrong place, my mind says ‘No! No! Charlie, your parents are in that place!’ To conclude that, I would comment that Zizou Corder has done an excellent job in making me feel different emotions, in this instance, annoyed for Charlie because he went to the wrong place so he couldn’t see his parents as they weren’t in that place.
Strap yourself in for a rocky ride as you travel through the pages of Eagle Strike.

But on his gripping adventure, Alex also has to find answers to his questions. Who is Damian Cray really? Why has Sabina been taken? But the biggest question of all: What is Eagle Strike? The question for readers of this bundle of paragraphs: which choice will the young spy take in the biggest dilemma of his life.
When you read
Eagle Strike (Alex Rider), surprises pop out like fireworks. The drama in each book involving Alex (including this one) is so well written that my heart beats ten times faster than usual when I am going through dramatic parts in the story. I would definitely recommend Alex Rider to adventure lovers, and if you are looking for unusual places, than the whole Alex Rider series will fit you like a glove. Eagle Strike captivated me, then shocked me when I realized the truth about Yassen. Turn the pages that Anthony Horowitz has typed his story on, and prepare yourself to be embraced in a spinning world of spies and murderers. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did!
Get ready to be plunged into this book like an airplane into deadly swamps! Prepare yourself to be grabbed and shaken by extraordinary possibilities when you read Alex Rider Skeleton Key.
When Alex Rider, a spy manipulated by the MI6, agrees to take a job as a ball boy at Wimbledon tennis courts, he finds himself assaulting some one from a band of deadly criminals. Alex is now trying to unravel the ball of string plot that General Sarov has so carefully wound. Will Alex Rider be able to stop something so big that it will go down as a record for the youngest boy ever to do in spy history?
This is the way the best adventure books should be written. The Alex Rider series, especially Skeleton Key, have a wide range of characters and settings, making the plot more creative and original. The story itself is like a winding path, with dozens of twists and turns, so that you can’t guess what happens next, but that is what I really loved about this book. If you like adventure, then the Alex Rider series are the perfect books for you. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did!
