As I'm sure we've all heard by now, the final book in the Alex Rider series by Anthony Horowitz has been released, and it is as gripping, action-packed and adrenalin filled as the first. As Scorpia Rising opens, the international terrorist organisation, Scorpia, has reformed and is planning it's most bold and damaging attack to date, which will involve framing both the British Government and it's most famous spy since Bond... boy MI6 agent, Alex Rider. But as said, this is the book in which we bid farewell to Alex. He's grown beyond discernible childhood and to carry on simply makes him one more secret agent. Horowitz made the decision long ago that Alex Rider would end when he reached 15 years of age, and he has kept his promise in dramatic form. If you're an Alex Rider fan, this is an absolute must. If you've not read them before (where have you been?), start with Stormbreaker and catch up.
