I’ve been a zealous fan of the Alex Rider series since the first appearance of Storm breaker in 2006, and this final part upholds the high quality fast paced excitement of exploit that differentiates this highly readable collection. Designed as a junior James Bond, Alex is always presented as the hesitant teenage spy. His archrival, SCORPIA, is a malevolent organization for hire which masterfully uses assassination, agony, extortion and ploy to achieve its ends. Refuting this is sometimes ethically dubious MI6 run by the seemingly firm and insipid Alan Blunt, his mint sucking 2nd Miss Jones and Smithers the somewhat mischievous stand in for queue, who finally gets in on the action.
This time out Scorpia is take on to “persuade” the British government to return the Elgin Marbles to Greece. They mature a sumptuous plan of con to implicate Alex in the murder of the US Secretary of State (obviously Hillary Clinton, but unspecified) and blackmail the British into compliance. MI6 takes the bate and Alex soon finds himself lodged in an elite school in Cairo, this time ushered by his legal guardian Jack Star bright, bringing her into the menace as well. There are also elements of former episodes in the book. Julius Grief, a malicious clone transformed to look like Alex from Point Blanc has an essential role, and Joe Byrne (the book’s Felix Leiter) also makes an appearance.
The ending. Oh the ending. So nostalgic and surprising. Horowitz doesn’t end his series as most would: in a word, happy. I have to confess that I was thwarted at the ending, although it was perhaps very realistic. But indeed it is an ending that will stick in the minds of the reader for a while and as a writer that’s something to anticipate. The only thing I have to say bugged me about Scorpia Rising is that the discourse between Jack and Alex seemed almost unnatural and obstinate, and I’m pretty sure Horowitz didn’t do that on purpose.
Overall, throughout 9 books, 9 different missions, numerous life and death situations, a surfeit of cool gadgets, and many evil guys, I have been captivated by the life of Alex Rider. Every book was great and although this book wasn’t as fantastic as the others it is still as engaging and as exciting as the books that came before.
