Scorpia has dogged Alex Rider for most of his life. They killed his parents, they did their best to con Alex into turning traitor, and they keep coming back with more power. Now the world’s most dangerous terrorist organization is playing with fire in the most combustible part of the world: the Middle East. No one knows Scorpia like Alex. And no one knows how to get to Alex better than Scorpia—until now.

The chases have never been more intense, the fights more treacherous, or the risks so perilous to mankind. And this time, Alex won’t get away.

    " In my opinion, this book was the most unrealistic mission for Alex Rider. It ended sadly also. "

    " I like the book and I noticed a lot of things I haven't really tooken a huge interest in. First off this is one of the only books i've ever read with the villians point of view which feels really fresh because you know how they feel and think. The death of Jack was really sad to me. I expected her to somehow live even though she didn't. I kept on reading people saying that they felt she shouldn't have died because it was totally unecassary, but thats exactly it! It was put because it shows just how nothing is fair in Alex's world. Did his parents really have to be killed on a planned vacation? No. Did he really have to be illegally turned into a spy? NO, and thats exactly the point Horowitz seems to be trying to make. Alex's life is unfair, he just has to deal with it. Which seriously sucks because he was being forced into being part of some stupid spy game. What I like particularly about this book was that unlike all the other books in the series it focused more on emotional pain than on physical pain, which is just as strong and maybe even worse for some people. It is shown just how important Jack is in the book. Her death was huge because she was almost all Alex had left. In the end Alex wasn't injured on the outside, but on the inside which was shown to be a lot worse because not only was he forced to do cold-blooded things, but he was also utterly broken and left with the guilt of watching Jack die. All in all I thought Scorpia rising was a great ending and that Horowitz proved a great point. Alex will slowly start to heal and the spy game will be over. The End. "

    " The last, but most epic Alex Rider book. I really love this book because unlike other Alex Rider books, there are so many questions that run through your mind as you read it. The characters are very interesting and the plot is just amazing. "

    " Alex Rider, 15-year-old British spy, returns in another rather implausible but fun adventure, this time in Egypt. As usual, there is lots of action and intrigue. Simon Prebble does an excellent job of reading the story. "
