The Lovereading4Kids comment
Ever since Anthony Horowitz introduced his boy hero Alex Rider in Stormbreaker he has had a series of sure fire winners on his hands. With the panache of James Bond restrained only by his age, Alex Rider acting as a spy for MI6 has out-smarted criminals across several continents. When Horowitz left him for dead at the end of Scorpia, fans howled for more. Here is Alex Rider again, and the new adventure with shows Rider has lost none of his appeal – and not just to boys either.
