Horowitz has created another superb novel starring Alex Rider, the first (and possibly last) teenager to work for MI6. This book is amazing. As is to be expected of Horowitz, Eagle Strike is action-packed to the brim. With car and motorcycle chases, exploding hotdog stands, hidden explosives, and bullfighting, Eagle Strike will keep you on the edge of your seat, even once you've read it through. The finish is stellar and forces you to guess about the next in the series.
The story begins in the south of France where Alex and his friend Sabina are on holiday. While on the beach, Alex notices Yassen Gregorovich on a boat. Yassen, of course, is the ruthless assassin who killed Alex's uncle, Ian Rider. Although Alex has been seeking revenge, he decides to ignore him. The result was that the house Sabina's parents had rented was destroyed in an explosion and Sabina's father had been almost killed. Alex was sure that he was the target, so he sets out to find Yassen.
Alex gets on to the boat after beating up one of Yassen's accomplishes and finds a gun. He comes face to face with Yassen but is unable to kill him him. Yassen then captures Alex and forces him into a bull fight. Alex manages to escape and dials the number that Yassen had dialed before Sabina's house had been destroyed. He is shocked to find that the person on the recieving end is Damien Cray.
Damien Cray is the world's most popular pop star and has done many things to save the environment and other people. Cray despises drugs and tries his best to save the environment. His latest project is the gameslayer, a video game consol that is extremely powerful. So naturally, Alex is shocked to find that his number was dialed by a contract killer.
Alex goes to MI6 to convince them that Damien Cray is not who he seems to be but they dismiss his case. Determined, Alex, along with Jack, tries himself to bring Cray to justice.Read more ›
Anthony Horowitz wrote this book. Anthony likes to keep you on the edge of your seat, and you always want to read to find out what happens next. The book, Eagle Strike, is about a boy named Alex who is somewhat forced into being a spy, by taking his uncles spot .In the first three books he goes on dangerous adventures for MI6. In Eagle Strike, Alex spots an assassin that he has met before, on one of his missions, while Alex is on vacation. Alex found out whom the assassin is working for this time and tells MI6.MI6 doesn't believe Alex, because the man the assassin is working for is rich, nice, and a famous singer, Damian Cray. Alex investigates by himself. Alex has now been caught by Cray and taken a key that would later be used to launch nuclear bombs from Air Force One. Damian needs to get that key back so he kidnaps a close friend of Alex's, Sabina Pleasure. Cray takes the two on hi adventure to Air Force One.
