Sir Damian Cray is a philanthropist, peace activist, and the world’s most famous pop star. But still it’s not enough. He needs more if he is to save the world. Trouble is, only Alex Rider recognizes that it’s the world that needs saving from Sir Damian Cray. Underneath the luster of glamour and fame lies a twisted mind, ready to sacrifice the world for his beliefs. But in the past, Alex has always had the backing of the government. This time, he’s on his own. Can one teenager convince the world that the most popular man on earth is a madman bent on destruction-before time runs out?
I really like this series yet this one was the best yet. It was full of action from the beginning, it was the best start in my opinion. Not sure how Alex is still 14, 4 books in, and it seems like only a few months have gone by, the timeline doesn’t seem great, but still a fabulous book.
Alex has a great way of working through problems, and I like how people still underestimate him, you think by now people wouldn’t. Yassen seems to be the only one who sees his true worth.
The story is always new and exciting, I am very much looking forward to seeing what happens next in the next one.
4 out of 5 stars
