Excellent book in which Alex gets caught up in yet another drama. His friend Sabina is with him in much of this book where he is holidaying with her and her parents in the South of France. The holiday cottage is blown up by a bomb and Sabina's father is inside.... Yassen, the Russian assassin is on the scene. Alex suspects him and sneaks into his yacht. Unfortunately Alex gets caught and the book really takes off. Luckily, Mr Smithers is on hand to provide a gadget or two which ultimately prevents Alex ending up in the same way as Yassen....

An excellent read and a real page-turner!

Very action packed and great suspense in some places. It could have been a bit more detailed in some of the places, however it is still a great book to read. And that is why I gave it a 4 star rating!!! (would have been a 4.5 but that's not possible)

Eagle Strike is the fourth book in the Alex Rider series by Anthony Horowitz. Alex is a truly wonderful creation. He is the person every schoolboy in the world wants to be. Each of Horowitz's books is twice as good as the last. Horowitz has excelled himself yet again with another fantastic book.
In " Eagle Strike" Alex is still only fifteen but has already had three life changing adventures that involved poison gas, clones and ultimate world domination. This time Alex Rider is on the track of multi-millionaire Damian Cray. When he sees contract killer Yassen Gregorovich visit Cray he suspects the worse. When MI6 refuse to look into it, Alex decides to investigate, with or without their help.
Fate also leads Alex to his destiny. But does he like what he finds?
Tension, atmosphere and suspense unite in the adventure of a lifetime. Enter Alex's world of spies, gadgets and murder in this superb book. It will take your breath away.

This is high praise indeed from contract killer Yassen Gregorovich, here making a welcome return. The reason for such respect will in due course shake Alex Rider to the core.

As ever, there is much to relish in Alex's fourth adventure, but some may feel it not one of his best. The series rejoices in formidable villains, but globally acclaimed popstar Damian Cray convinces far less than most - his bizarre plans barely standing up to scrutiny, especially when he already has so much.

Great action sequences range from a bull ring to a Presidential plane, with many excitements in between. Bond has his car, Alex his bike - gadgets courtesy of Smithers, the only one at MI6 he trusts.

Though still only fourteen, the youth is changing - mindful he is destined for ever-increasing loneliness. His very existence means any friendship he makes places that person in peril. His opinion of MI6 is even lower than before. For once he needed its help, but was rejected. Yes, he is hardening - final shock revelations to hasten the process.

Some readers may this time have reservations, but staunch fans again will find much to please.

The fourth book in the Alex Rider series is quite different from the previous three. The formula of Alex being given a mission by MI6 is abandoned, and this time it's an adventure he has got himself into, when a holiday with a friend's family goes horribly wrong.

This makes it probably the best of the series so far, with a bad guy who seems realistic and others who have a surprising amount of depth. The action is fast paced and well written and I'm actually amazed at how well the format of a teenager in the style of James Bond works here.

A good quick read and an indicator that the series night continue to pick up from here on, as elements of a continuing story are introduced.
