Review: Scorpia Rising (Alex Rider #9) by Anthony Horowitz

5 Stars
Scorpia Rising
Series: Alex Rider
Author: Anthony Horowitz
Pages: 402
Alex Rider is out of the spy world, for the last four months he has been doing nothing but what any other fifteen year old would be doing: going to school, hanging out with friends, playing sports.

But there is one enemy that just wont stop. Scorpia.

Alex has defeated them twice, which is bad for their reputation, but now a plan has come along for them to make forty million dollars and get their revenge, in effect taking them back to the top, restoring their reputation.

And this plan has everything to do with Alex Rider dying.

If you are like me you will not be able to put this heart stopping, adrenaline rushing ninth novel down!!

MI6 once again drags Alex Rider out of his ordinary life, and back into the spy world after info comes along that creates a mission he is just suited for in Cario. Sending him off to Cario though this time he is not alone as Jack Starbright, his house keeper/best friend, and Mr Smithers, the gadget master comes with him. That in it self ups this novel. How the two character are incorporated when we have Alex in the middle of action. As we usually only see them after and before his missions.

And like all the missions that MI6 has sent him on it is supposed to be easy and not dangerous at all. Alex should have known better. One thing they didn't tell him, was that Scorpia is at the center of it.

The author has really out done himself this time in sending Scorpia to the Middle East with a plan that has Alex once again in the middle. But this time it is different, the series is at an end, and Alex wont be going back home this time.

In this book, Alex Rider's mission: to stop Scorpia, once and for all.

This book was by far the most emotional and out right shocking in the series. Especially what we learn about the head man at the MI6, Mr. Blunt. I have never really liked him, but never could have foreseen what we learn in this novel.

This was the most amazing book, by far my favorite in the Alex Rider!! It was just shock after shock, I was never off the edge of my seat trying to anticipate what would happen next. Major suspense, action-adventure and even if we didn't know for sure that this was going to be the last book in the series you could tell by reading it, the whole book rings of finality. If there is one problem I have with the book it was that, there will not be anymore Alex Rider books which makes me want to cry but at the same time happy.

Again for those of you who trust my opinion, read this series. It has never let me down!
