Absolutely fabulous

I loved this book. I have only read the Alex Rider series up to this book but out of the books I have read in the series, this was the best. There were barely any boring bits and it was impossible to put down. It is very exciting and it completely sucks you in. The story begins in the south of France where Alex and his friend Sabina are on holiday. While on the beach, Alex notices Yassen Gregorovich on a boat. Yassen, of course, is the ruthless assassin who killed Alex's uncle, Ian Rider. Although Alex has been seeking revenge, he decides to ignore him. The result was that the house Sabina's parents had rented was destroyed in an explosion and Sabina's father had been almost killed. Alex was sure that he was the target, so he sets out to find Yassen. Alex gets on to the boat after beating up one of Yassen's accomplishes and finds a gun. He comes face to face with Yassen but is unable to kill him him. Yassen then captures Alex and forces him into a bull fight. Alex manages to escape and dials the number that Yassen had dialed before Sabina's house had been destroyed. He is shocked to find that the person on the recieving end is Damien Cray. Damien Cray is the world's most popular pop star and has done many things to save the environment and other people. Cray despises drugs and tries his best to save the environment. His latest project is the gameslayer, a video game consol that is extremely powerful. So naturally, Alex is shocked to find that his number was dialed by a contract killer. Alex goes to MI6 to convince them that Damien Cray is not who he seems to be but they dismiss his case. Determined, Alex, along with Jack, tries himself to bring Cray to justice. While spying on Cray, Alex discovers a plot of Cray's called 'Eagle Strike' but Alex has no idea what those words mean. He also discovers that he was not the target of the bomb in Sabina's house. Thus, begins an adventure involving high speed chases, the international drug trade, air plane hijackings, nuclear missiles, and Air Force One: the American President's Airplane. Although the plot may seem a little far fetched, it only adds to the excitement. A must read, I absolutely loved this book. I recommend this book to anyone who loves an action packed novel.

Go read this book!

Eagle Strike, the fourth book in the Alex Rider series, was one of the best books I have ever read. I loved how it gave enough detail so you could get a good picture in your head. Some books give you so much detail that you're thinking "I really don't care just get on with it!" There is nothing boring about this book. The whole series is full of adventure. When I was reading this book, I literally could not put it down. Anthony Horowitz has a way of making you really care about the charactors. You can never tell what happens next. Go read this book!

Wow! An Amazing Book!

I first read Stormbreaker a few years ago and was intrigued, but I never thought of there being a sequel, for some reason. But while I was at the bookstore I ran across the others and eagerly read them all. In my opinion, Eagle Strike is the best of them, drawing from the other books but unique in its own way. I was exetremely happy to see Yassen Gregorovich back again, since I had an odd fascination with him, but the ending was a letdown for me---not saying anymore about that! Though this book was hard to relate to-how many kids can say they saved the world?-it was interesting and oddly believable! Also, the age category is 9-12, but anyone older than that can thoroughly enjoy it, as I did. I think Anthony Horowitz is extremely talented and develops a plot and characters that evoke all sorts of emotions from readers. I can't wait until Scorpia is released in the US; I will be first in line to get it!

The Hidden Truth -- a review by Gregory, age 10

While Alex is enjoying his vacation in southern France with Sabina (his girlfriend) and her family, he spots Yassen Gregorovich, the assassin who killed his uncle, Ian Rider. Shortly afterward, a `dreadful accident' puts a quick end to the vacation. When Alex discovers Yassen's cell phone has a speed dial, he dials the number and hears the voice of super-celebrity Damian Cray. Once Alex returns to London and tries to contact MI6, they don't believe him. After failing to convince MI6 of Cray's guilt, Alex sets off to prove it himself. His quest leads him to the headquarters of Cray Software Technology in Amsterdam. At the end of the book, Alex has uncovered a truth that has been concealed from him for his entire life, and will alter his entire future.Horowitz has created another superb novel starring Alex Rider, the first (and possibly last) teenager to work for MI6. This book is amazing. As is to be expected of Horowitz, Eagle Strike is action-packed to the brim. With car and motorcycle chases, exploding hotdog stands, hidden explosives, and bullfighting, Eagle Strike will keep you on the edge of your seat, even once you've read it through. The finish is stellar and forces you to guess about the next in the series.
