    1. Jonathan Terrington on said:

      In my opinion Scorpia Rising may be the best novel in a long and excellent series The gadgetry has always been well thought out, the twists and the suspense is brilliant and the emotional aspects of the series is astounding To convincingly portray how a teenage kid abused by so many people into becoming a hardened weapon is emotionally affected is superb.When I read it earlier this year I was blown away For me coming to the end of a series I have appreciated is always gut wrenching to a degree T [...]

      I knew I was in trouble when the book cover announced that this was The Final Mission This book was very different from all the others in the series For starters, the plot had a LOT of background and setup that went on We don t even SEE Alex Rider until the book is HALF over I think that was too long to wait Basically, Scorpia is trying to show themselves as a force to be reckoned with, so they hatch a plan to not only pull off a major league crime, but pin it on Alex There were flashes of the o [...]

      It s finally here the last Alex Rider An author faces a lot of pressure writing the last book of a popular series And up to now, Horowitz has done well to tell the same story in so many different ways.What impressed me with this series was that woven in between all the killing and running was interesting information about world issues that would otherwise be relegated to the realm of adults refugees and the criminals who exploit them medical research and the noble and corrupt interests that driv [...]

      I have enjoyed this genre of books since i was a young teenager Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew.y series that demonstrated empowered young people pitting their wits against unscrupulous adults As a parent I am still interested in what young people are reading Enter Alex Rider I have followed Alex from the beginning Not your typical hero He has been groomed against his will He has been used against his will He has lost every loving relationship save Jack And he is doomed to lose her too He knows that he i [...]

    7. Owen on said:

      SPOILER ALERT I ve been reading this series since I was very young and I remember enjoying it a lot I was excited to see that the author had written another one, and I was also sad it was going to end These books, I remembered, were a great series for boys and it was one of the first middle grade series I read It is a little difficult to explain this book because it is the last in the series You would have to read the whole series to understand what it going on I ll admit it, I don t remember so [...]

      Wow, this book started out super good I loved it But I didn t like the way it ended It was very sad, I think he could have ended it much better Poor Alex

    9. Kiirsi Hellewell on said:

      The first thing I said when I finished Scorpia Rising was WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK , then I raged for a little while and then I went to bed But lets start with the beginning.I was thrilled when I found out that the last Alex Rider book was going to be about Scorpia Scorpia was always my favourite Alex Rider book they re such BAMFS and I was sure that Alex was going to go out with a bang And for a while it actually looked like he was going to do exactly that Scorpia Rising is separated into two parts [...]

    12. Colby on said:

      I ve rode these books from the beginning to the end, starting in sixth grade You see what I did there, don t you In my honest opinion, they kept getting better as each one came Alex grew, and with him, the threats grew as well Although Alex had many enemies, his biggest enemy was Scorpia, which stood for Sabotage, Corruption, Intelligence, and Assassination He s forced them down before, but they won t stay down for long The first part of the book is written through Scorpia s point of view, and, [...]

    13. Rachel on said:

      This book was pretty much the same as all the other ones, though the ending was a little different But it still was pretty good At some parts it was a little boring, but overall, it was a good ending to the story of Alex Rider.

      As Britain s top spy, working for M16, Alex Rider has battled numerous villains He s taken down some of the world s most brilliant criminal masterminds and has proven again and again how brave, resourceful, and efficient he is Alex has done all this despite being just fifteen years old But in Scorpia Rising , Alex faces his very last mission of all And this is one he might not come home from.It is with a heavy heart that I write this review I have been a fan of Alex Rider for a very long time no [...]

    16. Karen Ball on said:

      This is the ninth and final book in the Alex Rider series, and it s best for those who have read other books because Horowitz brings back characters and events from those stories Alex is back in school, with a part in the school musical and the captain s spot on the football team He s got an active life, and his beloved guardian, Jack Starbright, is debating leaving him to go back to America to care for her very ill father Neither of them has any intention of ever dealing with MI6 again until th [...]

      Review for Scorpia Rising by Anthony Horowitz.Spoiler ALERTMonth Year read January, 2013Rating, out of 5 5 stars upon 5 starsIn my opinion, this book is one of the very few who actually make way to the soft spot in my heart which is reserved for special books alone Scorpia Rising was, I must say not predictable No, not at all I know most people say so, and I am sorry, but that is not true If there are any people out there who were able to predict the heart wrenching moments of this book, congrat [...]

    21. Limau Nipis on said:

      Guilty because this book has been sitting on my shelf for exactly 1 year.I have never read the Alex Rider series before, but this was something that I can compare to James Bond movies Not Jason Bourne s type, but toward James Bond because of the MI6 involvement.Fast paced, action packed for a young adult novel.

      Read the review at iLive, iLaugh, iLove Books.This series has always been one of my favorites It s different from what I usually read That is fantasy, science fiction, paranormal, the like But sometimes I enjoy middle grade books because they re just fun, adventurous I began reading this series in seventh grade, and I m disappointed to see that this is the end.Alex Rider is supposed to be history He s not supposed to enter MI6, ever again But Scorpia s back And this time, they re cooking up a [...]

      Damn I think that was one of my favourite Alex rider books Which I mean it shouldn t be because a lot of really crappy things happened to Alex in this particular book Is that a spoiler This is the 9th book in the Alex rider series and it s actually the last book, the 10th book is a prequel which I can t wait to read Scorpia is back, as is evident by the title, they have new recruits and are believed to be better than ever Which means that they have some scores to settle with Alex Rider On a comp [...]
