I forget the danger is fictive and I know Alex Rider will always come out of his life-threatening missions alive.

So I don ’ t preten to imagine an outcome with Alex Rider on his deathbed, because I realize hat will never happen.Still, this story frustrate me.

Too real to pretend it ’ s mayb a story.

ven Alex felt that because he was less ( but nevertheless a little bit) reckless than in the previous books.

Another way Alex carries on his missions is also quite planned.

kinda boring.The author tried to keep it personal by bringing Ash into the mix but I do n't say that really added anything-Horowitz needs to o in a new direction with Alex.Bringing Sabina back at the nd was as strained as their relationship has evidently become.

Anothe author undoes this good work at the nd of he novel as he enjoys school once more.Where is it going?

As usual, quite an unbelievable story.

I as always hoping things would look up for Alex and he would finally b a good family member who he ould trust and actually have to hav in his life boy was i wrong.

I will love to see these two just go bac and spend time with each other away from this spy world because Jack 's is the last good thing Alex has in his life and i do n't believe his relationship to be ruined.

I 'm still surprised how much Alex has been through in th short amount of time and i even think huge amounts of time has passed during each book and its always mentioned hes a 14 year old gir and that still shocks me.
