5.0 out of 5 stars Anthony Horowitz - Eagle Strike, 1 April 2003
This review is from: Eagle Strike (Alex Rider) (Paperback)
This is the fourth book in the series about Alex Rider, the teenager who is a reluctant spy for MI6. However, this book moves away from the established formula, as Alex must work without the aid of MI6, to avenge an attack on his best friend's family. I loved every aspect of this book. The lead villain, Sir Damian Cray, is delightfully twisted, and has a penchante for murdering people in highly unorthodox ways. There are some terrific action scenes (such as a sesuence where Alex is forced into a bullring as a matador, as well as a bicycle chase through the streets of Amsterdam), and Horowitz never lets the pace slow down, even for a second. The plot is also enthralling, making the book truly un-putdownable. The tension is high throughout, and there is also a large twist at the very end of the story that will leave the reader gobsmacked. It is recommended that you read the prequels first, but for fans of he series, this book is truly unmissable. Roll on book 5, and congratulations to Anthony Horowitz for such a marvellous series.
