Alex isn’t your average fourteen-year-old British schoolboy. His uncle was a highly trained agent, and also Alex’s legal guardian, but now Ian Rider is dead, and as Alex gets dragged into the secret spy service MI6, he comes closer and closer to finding the man responsible for his uncle’s death.

It includes:

• Violence (shooting, murder, deaths, punching, chases, and explosions)
• An intense scene in which a young boy is trapped in a water tank and nearly killed by a giant jellyfish
• Mild profanity (d*mn, h*ll, and bloody)
• One instance each of smoking and drinking wine
• A character is forcefully drugged
• Frequent rash decision-making and life-risking

Stormbreaker is the first of nine espionage thriller books following the main protagonist, Alex Rider. These books are always smart, entertaining, and quite violent, but there aren’t a whole lot of positive role models.
