This review is from: Scorpia (Alex Rider) (Paperback)
Anthony Horowitz's fifth Alex Rider book is an amazing thriller which is full of suspense, tension and secrets being revealed that have been kept too long. Alex goes on a school trip to Venice. His only intention was to find Scorpia, an evil, shadowy and world-wide organisation, but soon he ends up being almost killed by them, then part of them. Scorpia set Alex his first assignment: killing head of MI6 - Mrs Jones. At the last minute, Alex joins MI6 to stop operation `invisible sword'. They soon discover that Scorpia's children had their new term injections, a microscopic piece of gold with poison inside was injected. A Terahertz beam can destroy the gold at the right height and frequency, therefore releasing the poison and killing the children. There is an epic battle between MI6 and Scorpia. Alex has to try and succeed in his mission... At the end though, someone is watching...
