I recommend this book to anyone over the age of 11 because it is a very interesting, action packed book, which involves bombs, fire and shooting. I am certain that adults will also love this adventurous novel. I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series sometime soon. -- Young Reviewer The Guardian Online [Skeleton Key] is a brilliant book: it is fun and inspires you to read more and when you've started it's a great book to get into.
