Amazon.com Review

Anthony Horowitz's enormously popular series about the world’s premier teenage spy, returns for another round with secret agent Alex Rider fighting ingenious villains and charming every girl he meets. Eagle Strike, Horowitz’s fourth fictional foray into the world of British spy agency MI6, starts out calmly enough as Alex and his lovely companion, Miss Sabina Pleasure, vacation with her family in the south of France. But before you can say Goldfinger, Alex spots his old nemesis, renowned assassin Yassen Gregorovich, on the beach. What Alex discovers is a plan so diabolical that it makes all of his previous adventures seem like a stroll in the Queen Mum’s garden. Alex must fight to keep Gregorovich from executing the plans of a mysterious and murderous madman--an operation code named "Eagle Strike." He will just have to face down a few minor complications first: a virtual reality game that inflicts real pain; a fleet of Porche 911 GT3-driving hit men; and even a near fatal brush with death aboard the most famous aircraft in the world, Air Force One. But he’ll persevere, or his name isn’t Rider: Alex Rider. Eagle Strike, like all of the ridiculously fun Alex Rider adventures, is a pure guilty pleasure from start to finish. Even the most reluctant of readers won’t be able to resist Alex’s Bond-like ingenuity and charisma. Anthony Horowitz is a master of pacing, and as Alex swings from one cliff-hanging chapter to the next, Horowitz proves that you don’t have to be Shakespeare to pen a crackerjack plot! --Jennifer Hubert

From School Library Journal

Grade 5-10--Alex Rider, a 14-year-old secret agent who has worked for MI6--British military intelligence--returns for his fourth adventure. Vacationing in France with his girlfriend, Sabina Pleasure, and her parents, Alex spots Yassen Gregorovich, a known assassin, and senses something isn't quite right. Before long, Sabina's journalist father is injured in an "accidental" bombing and Alex is thrown into another mystery that involves a devious scheme to annihilate the world. In this heart-racing novel, Horowitz combines fast-paced action with ingenious gadgets that Alex either has on his side or is forced to battle against. The straightforward writing will appeal to a wide audience; the story is intricate enough to entertain older readers, but accessible to younger ones as well. For anyone who has enjoyed Alex's previous adventures, EagleStrike will prove just as good if not better, and for those who haven't been introduced to this young spy, this book will certainly get them addicted and anxiously awaiting the next installment.--Leigh Ann Morlock, Vernonia School District, OR

While Alex is enjoying his vacation in southern France with Sabina (his girlfriend) and her family, he spots Yassen Gregorovich, the assassin who killed his uncle, Ian Rider. Shortly afterward, a `dreadful accident' puts a quick end to the vacation. When Alex discovers Yassen's cell phone has a speed dial, he dials the number and hears the voice of super-celebrity Damian Cray. Once Alex returns to London and tries to contact MI6, they don't believe him. After failing to convince MI6 of Cray's guilt, Alex sets off to prove it himself. His quest leads him to the headquarters of Cray Software Technology in Amsterdam. At the end of the book, Alex has uncovered a truth that has been concealed from him for his entire life, and will alter his entire future.
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.

A Kid's Review on February 7, 2007
Format: Paperback
I loved this book. I have only read the Alex Rider series up to this book but out of the books I have read in the series, this was the best. There were barely any boring bits and it was impossible to put down. It is very exciting and it completely sucks you in.

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.

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.

Later that day Alex finds out the Yassen Gregorovich (The killer of Alex's Uncle) is behind this.

Before Alex can prove to M16 that this attack was from the famous pop star, Alex attends a new video game opening by that exact man! Alex must prove to the world and his girlfriend that this man is evil before it is to late! Will Alex save the world or will the world suffer in the hands of the villain?!
