The book starts at Ian Rider's (Alex's uncle) funeral because he died in a car crash. Then Alex goes to Royal and General Bank (to see the place where his uncle worked) and tries to get in his uncle's office but it is locked! He comes in from the window and sees a file saying 'Stormbreaker' but a minute later he faints. After that, Alex is invited to work for MI6 who tell him that Ian was a spy. He trains at the SAS (Special Air Service). His mission starts when Alex pretends to be Felix Lester (a boy who won the prize of being the first boy or girl to use Stormbreaker) and meets Herod Sayle (villain) so he can test the new computer (Stormbreaker). But Herod Sayle secretly places smallpox virus in all the computers which will activate when the computers are switched on.
This book is very exciting because it has cliff-hangers such as when Alex gets injected by a drug dart at the end of the chapter.
I recommend this book to people who like spies a lot as well as action and adventure (adventurous people).

These books are so popular at our library that there is a really long waiting list for them.
Fortunately with Amazon Prime we were able to get this really quickly.
This book follows the life of Alex Rider - ordinary 14 year old school boy with an ordinary life. Then one day he's told his Uncle - Ian Rider - has died in a dreadful car crash... But something just isn't quite right. If it was a car crash that killed Ian Rider, why are there bullet holes in his car?
A series of events quickly lead Alex to Cornwall where he has been sent to spy on Herod Sayle - sewer rat turned multi-millionaire. He's giving every school in the country one of his new "Super-Computers". So why is the countries secret service intrigued?
All questions are answered in the action packed book which is... Stormbreaker.
