    Wonderfull book

    I loved this book. I had never read one of these books. I had to read it for school and i was not very happy. It did not instently pull me in, but once i read a cupple chapters or so i was hooked. Some day i might read the first two, but for now this is enuff. Every one should read it is one of the best books i have read. If you do not beleave me or if you do you should read it. You wont be sorry and you'll want to keep on reading it. Hoping you can stay in all day and read. Yes it is that good and im not a big science fiction fan. But i just love this wonderfull book

    I gave The Thirteenth Skull 4.5 out of 5 stars. This book was full of action and it would keep you at the edge of your seat at the end of each chapter. The book also had good description and a great plot.
    In this book there is a 15 year old teen named Alfred Kropp who has extraordinary powers from heaven to heal people. He murders the father of Jourdain Garmot, the head of a powerful company called Tintagel International and Alfred is now being pursued by them. He acquires the safety of another company called OIPEP who want to keep him safe for an “experiment” and they put Alfred in a secure location in the Canadian Rockies. Alfred escapes the facility and is now being pursued by two companies. Alfred has to use cunning and help from a few people to escape this situation.
    I would recommend this book to guys who like a lot of action. I get this because on pages 17 to 22 there is a very action-packed car chase that has explosions, gunfire, and deaths. Also, on pages 91 to 102, there is a rescue that includes smoke, tear gas, explosions, and another chase with just as much action as the other one. I don’t believe girls would like a book full of blood and gunfire as much as guys would.

    Meeting Alfred Kropp in THE EXTRAORDINARY ADVENTURES OF ALFRED KROPP really was extraordinary! Then I eagerly read THE SEAL OF SOLOMON, wondering what could surpass the thrill of Alfred first stealing, then losing, and then recovering Excalibur, King Arthur's sword. The author, Rick Yancey, didn't let the reader down. Alfred was forced to fight demons! So, naturally, I couldn't wait to read THE THIRTEENTH SKULL!<BR/><BR/>I've rated this book Grades 6+, as I have his first two titles, but with a caveat. Mr. Yancey pulls no punches when describing the violence and clear danger Alfred faces. I do not doubt that younger readers will devour the Alfred Kropp books, but parents will want to use their discretion. <BR/><BR/>Mr. Yancey doesn't even let the reader get good and comfy in their favorite reading chair before relentlessly yanking them to the proverbial edge of their seat. The first chapter starts with a bang - literally. A truck blows up beneath Alfred's new penthouse suite window, on the 30th floor of Samson Towers. In short order, one man is shot and Alfred is fighting for his life with his attacker. Soon the two are racing to the ground floor, one by express elevator, the other by parachute. And Mr. Yancey's not done yet. There's still a police car to commandeer, complete with the surprised officer at the wheel, a car chase through city streets, and yet another explosion. <BR/><BR/>Once again Alfred is sucked back into the OIPEP. But can he trust the new Operative Nine? What about the beautiful new field agent? And who is trying to kill Alfred, and more importantly, why? <BR/><BR/>First it was Excalibur, then the Seal of Solomon. Both times he nearly lost his life. Now it's the Thirteenth Skull. Alfred knows that this time it will be different. Samuel, the former Operative Nine and now Alfred's guardian, is not reassuring. Alfred must find out what the Thirteenth Skull is. The clock is ticking and Alfred knows his time is about up.<BR/><BR/>I absolutely will not tell you more. You MUST, MUST, MUST go buy THE THIRTEENTH SKULL. But only after you buy and read his first two titles, as this series is best read in order. Mr. Yancey has created a cast of characters equal to the Alex Rider series by Anthony Horowitz. I can't wait to see Alfred Kropp's adventures on the big screen!
