Philanthropic pop-star or utter madman? Anthony Horowitz's latest, Eagle Strike: An Alex Rider Adventure finds the teen spy tracking another arch-villain across Europe in an action-packed follow-up to Stormbreaker, Point Blank and Skeleton Key. PW wrote of the debut book, "Readers will cheer for the 14-year-old hero of this spy thriller and stay tuned for his next assignment."
I see what Anthony Horowitz is doing here! He’s aware that Skelton Key was just awful, so he’s trying to pack more action into this one. And it works! Honestly, I was kind of reluctant to read this after Skelton Key, (one of the worst books I’ve ever read) but for some reason I did, and I am happy I did! This one has everything you’d want from a good spy story, action, (especially) some romance, drama, and cool antagonists! The best one so far! (second best point black third best stormbreaker worst one skeleton key)
I absolutely love this book. Anthony Horowitz describes Damian Cray so well. It almost feels like I know him. Thank goodness I really don't! Anyway, I loved how Alex uses good old fashion trickery in this book. I also like how he's so eager to save Sabina. I recommend this book for 12 year olds and older. -Little Young Me 🤗
One of my fav in the series
