P.S: I hope you found this helpfull! :)
I felt there was more suspense and excitement in this book than in Stormbreaker, lots more cliffhangers at the end of chapters. Also he gets to go on a mission to a different country in Scorpia. This was quite a long book to read as it had 369 pages were Stormbreaker was only 240 pages. Some of the chapters were very long but it was worth it as it's a very good book. I like Scorpia more than Stormbreaker because Scorpia is more action packed and compelling. You want to keep reading to find out what happens.
. I just read this book at 24 as a primary teacher having bought new copies for school in hope they’d inspire my students to read like my stolen copy had me.
This said, once the story gets going it flies, and the unmistakable Bondian tropes are all present and correct. Without venturing into 'spoilers' territory, it's fair to say that Alex's final mission will leave more devastating emotional scars than ever before, as well as delivering a delicious villain and at least one surprising treat for those who have followed the series since its inception. Good stuff.
