A fine assortment of action and mystery. I loved the characters first of all- especially Alex [of course] and the villains are so... different from those in other books. A definite read! [The whole series is absolutely amazing!]

really love the series i'm putting that one on hold!

Alex Rider thought he was done with spy missions....that was until the Australian government pulled him out of his vacation. Alex Rider only agrees because his godfather, Ash, is on the same mission. Little does Alex know, that this will be his most dangerous mission yet as he comes face to face yet again with Scorpia, and is betrayed by an unseen enemy.
