I found this novel fast and exiting, there were sad parts, enjoyable moments and a shocking end... But as I read the book I came to realize that, as in many series, especialy this one, you need to keep it realistic. Although Anthony Horowitz stretched the truth a couple of times, With MI6 and the CIA (MI6 is actually called MI5). He did make the series very enjoyable, so I now praise Anthony Horowitz for his Intriging writing... Now for those that have not read Scorpia Rising and do not want to no what happens, please you dont have to read the rest of my comment. When Jack was killed I was shocked, but at the same time I realized it wasnt a terrible death, Jack didnt even know she was dead, the explosion was instantly fatal, Thank Anthony Horowitz for giving Jack a quick death. By the end of the novel I was shocked at Alex's state, he was in a state of suprime deppresion. I have always looked at the M16 and CIA as the good secret orginizations now I'm not sure. The ending of the book was good and it left me wondering Whats next? If you have read this comment and wish to read more of the Alex Rider adventure. Theres a book coming out called Yassen Gregorvitch, The story of the famous novel assasin. I will praise Anthony Horowitz for his intriging writing. Thank you, Alex Rider fans

Alex has finally turned 15; he's growing up and moving on with his life. It's been months since he last saw anyone from MI6 and it seems he's just a normal kid again. But Scorpia never forgives or forgets. He's bested them twice, and almost completely destroyed their reputation and now they're going to get him back. When Alex finds himself pulled back into the world of secrets, spies, and criminals, investigating a security officer at an international school in Egypt. But nothing is as it seems and he finds himself being played by everyone. This is his last mission, and the series is determined to go out with a bang.

Some Greek billionaire wants his country's statues back in his home country. He claims the British stole it from Greece and hired Scorpia to get it back. Scorpia then creates a plot to humiliate M16 by revealing to the world that they hired a teenager as a spy and to use that as leverage to make them ship the statues back to Greece. Obviously as always their plan fails. This book mostly takes place in Egypt and the CIA is as much involved as M16 in my opinion. Also on this mission Jack Starbright goes along with Alex and is blown up while trying to get help for the both of them(they were kidnapped by Scorpias agents). Another point I should make is that Julius Grief is involved in this book the one that looks exactly like Alex from the book Eagle strike I think.
