I find Alex Rider�s gadgetry more thrilling than precognition, and whenever this author plays to his strengths rather than describing mystical powers, the story rises another notch.

great to hear it, Kelly - yes, I know of lots of girls who enjoy the Rider series, just as lots of girls (&women) like teh Bond movies - thanks for commenting on the Blog!
