Review: Scorpia (Alex Rider #5) by Anthony Horowitz

5 Stars
Series: Alex Rider
Pages: 400
Read Count: 2
In Anthony Hororwitz fifth Alex Rider novel, Scorpia, we find Alex as we left off from the last book, Eagle Strike. Devastated by the knowledge that his father, John Rider may have been an assassin for a large criminal organization, Scorpia. 

Not being able to ask MI6, Alex does the only thing he can do, he goes to find the answers himself. Now Scorpia want him on their side and Alex believes he has no other choice, that is until he learns of Scorpia's new plot, one that will kill thousands, and Alex will do anything to stop it.

Alex is a teen spy-- who work's for MI6, though in the last book Alex goes on a mission by himself without the backing of MI6. During the end of that book Alex learned some pretty heavy stuff from the assassin, Yassen Gregorvich, who as it turns out knew his father. Before Yassen died he told Alex to "go to Venice and find Scorpia--and that he would find his destiny."

So that is where this book starts off, Alex is in Venice for a few days with his friend Tom Harris, after spending some time there they are to leave for Tom's brothers, Jerry, in Naples. On there last day there Alex finally find a lead. This is the start of what has to be my favorite Alex Rider novel so far.
The book has many plot twists and we get some very shocking revelations about Alex's father. I loved it, and though I do hate the last scene, in the book, it shocked me and I almost cried, I still have to give it the full five stars. The author really puts us on the edges of our seats through the whole book and knocks us off with the last chapter.

It has everything I have come to expect; lots of action, suspense, thrills and more. I recommend this book/series to everyone, especially if you have read some of the Alex Rider books.
