    " The book is as good as the others in the series but I liked the Alex Rider books that include Scorpia. Although, (view spoiler)[ Ash being a Scorpia agent seem obvious from the time he started telling stories about Alex's parents. (hide spoiler)] Overall, though, it seems fairly well. Short but good.

    " If you are looking for an action packed mystery book, look no further. Alex Rider is yet again called for duty. This takes place after the book, Ark Angel. Alex splashes down in the ocean off of Australia, and spends some time to r&r. Sadly it does not last. He is called upon by the ASIS, and finds out that he will be working with his godfather, ASH. Alex wants to learn more about his past, but he soon realizes that he is now battling one of the largest organized crime figure in the world, Scorpia, and they have a plan for him. The whole Alex Rider series is fantastic. I would recommend it to all of my friends, and anyone that enjoys a good action mystery thriller. "

    " I think that the book is good so far. it has alot of fight and violence. It still is a good book. i would give it a 4.5 out of five right now. why because it just dropped some parts of the book. but other than that the book is exellent. i would recomend it to fans of action books. My favorite charechter is ash just because he is alex's godfather. The villian in this book is major yu. he is tring to kill eight celebirties. he is planning on using a bomb called royal blue. This book is action packed and it is just awesome and it keeps you on edge to the end. i think everbody should read all of you would love it i think. There are eight books in the series as of right now. gocheck out the other books they are really good. this series is about spies and terriost and smuggling and bad orginizations if you like those get this series. so like i sad if you like any of those go get this series right now. there is so much it just keeps you on edge and dont stop reading. so if you like the books tell other people about them.

    " Second best Alex Rider there is! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicholas Donohoue | 1/26/2014

    " I was really concerned about the author running out of ideas seeing as the last book literally went into the final frontier (for a really contrived reason). Snakehead recovered well and proved that the true final frontier was in South East Asia. Clever throughout and amazingly showed a nice touch of real world problems in the form of refugees. "

    " Just finished this book since my trip from Phoenix. This is the first of the Alex Rider books that I have read... not bad. Alex Rider is a little 14 year old James Bond. This book has been nominated for the Colorado Blue Spruce Award by young adults. I will be curious to see how it measures up in the eyes of other young adults once the voting is in. "

    " Would've been better if I'd bothered to read the first nine books, lol. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ozan Akipek | 1/6/2014

    " I didnt understand the book. Obviously because after I finished reading it, I realized that this book was apart of a series, and it wasnt the first book, so I missed out on a lot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarafina | 1/4/2014

    " This is a very good book where Alex continues his adventures, this time in the Middle East. He ends up tangling with a very dangerous snakehead which is also involved with Scorpia, the criminal organization that has been against him previously. "

    " was not as good as scopia but still a good book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jacey | 11/16/2013

    " I loved this book. It was full of adventure and suspence. It was a blast to read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jake | 11/15/2013

    " This book is the second greatest Alex rider books I've read so far. In this one Alex works for Australia, and there isn't much of a change to the story. This series is more of a feel good series then a confusing plot filled book. it's an easy read, but it's very enjoyalble. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jill | 11/15/2013

    " I thought these books were great....even though they are about a 14 yr old spy. My husband makes great fun of me..but I don't care. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 April | 9/19/2012

    " These books are definitely written for a teenage boy audience! They are quite predictable, but I still thought they were enjoyable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 James Miller | 8/29/2012

    " this book look so cool i wont to read it "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 DeAnn | 7/9/2012

    " This is a fun series about a 14 year old James Bond. Usually quite predictable, but always entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrew " Da beast" Costantini | 6/15/2012

    " Was probably the best book of the seiries, completley amazing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kezia *Mrs Dean Winchester* | 3/3/2012

    " What happened to Ash was so sad. Even after all those years he still could not eat real food. i was really surprised to find out he was a double agent and was really sad he died. i like how Alex beat that big wrestler even though he was triple his age. that was awsome. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie | 12/30/2011

    " All of the books in the Alex Rider seriers are great if you like action packed, page turning, stories of 14 year-old spys. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Philbyrd | 11/28/2011

    " I really liked it i would recommend it "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hannah | 5/20/2011

    " Ark Angel was suppost to be the final ending. Then Horowitz decided that Snakehead would do the the trick. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wesley | 5/19/2011

    " I thought that snakehead was a very suspensful book and one of if not the best Alex Rider books in the series. I think that the snakeheads won't come back but I think Scorpia will. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aturo | 5/6/2011

    " I liked this book because it contained a lot of action and the main character Alex would never give up on completing his mission.I gave this book five stars because the whole plot and the ending was good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bookworm | 5/5/2011

    " I think this book wasn't as good as the others. The plot bored me, and, for an Alex Rider book, there wasn't even much action! Anthony Horowitz has done a lot better on his other books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Riannon | 4/29/2011

    " This series remains good even after 7 books. Sure, plenty of the events and the villains are a bit over the top, but that gives it charm and style. Yes, the reader may see some of the plot twists coming, but more importantly, the reader (at least this reader) enjoys every moment of getting there. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robin | 4/15/2011

    " I enjoyed this book much better than the last one. Still far-fetched. Still a great escape from reality. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Edwin | 4/13/2011

    " I thought that it was the end with Alex Rider because he is disguise as a refugee dealing with gangs "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chloe | 4/12/2011

    " Amazing; just like all the other Alex Rider books. Anthony is a great write with his imaginative yet realistic stories that always have a twist in the end which makes me adore and love his Alex Rider series. "
