Clever, resourceful and never one to give up on his exploits, the schoolboy turned superspy who is forcibly recruited into MI6 has found himself in many far flung places in the world and even in space armed only with his own special set of secret gadgets.

The newest addition to the series, Secret Weapon includes seven Alex Rider adventures, with three brand new stories featuring old adversaries and loyal allies. Unmissable for fans of the series, Secret Weapon is also the perfect introduction to the exciting world of Alex Rider.

Our expert review for Secret Weapon; Anthony Horowitz packs huge amounts of tension, excitement and humour into his short stories! He shows off a breath-taking ability to conjure adventure out of the most unlikely beginnings, and in his hands even a trip to the dentist turns into a full-on, peril-laden caper. There’s everything in this collection that makes the Alex Rider novels so addictive: dangerous situations, daring escapes, gadgets galore. And of course, there’s Alex himself – super-smart, super-resourceful, super-cool.  Irresistible, unbeatable reading. ~ Andrea Reece

Perfect for older children and early teens, for boys and girls and for keen or reluctant readers alike.
