Having given his hyperpopular series something of a breather, Horowitz now sets it back on track with a fresh caper that roars along to a (naturally) explosive climax and tidy resolution. If the broad teaser at the end is any indication, Alex’s career is in no danger of slowing down.

11 books might be a bit too long, but these are still fun. For Alex, it has only been about a year, year and a half since he became a spy.
A helicopter lifted a bus? A train ran down a car? Explosions, poison, gold statues, mass kidnappings, and Alex thrown in the sea with heavy chains! This was just as good as the other books.
Some of the timing is fictionalized. MI6 says, "Alex, we have a mission for you. It's urgent. So, go train for 2 weeks" (book 1) or "So, we're going to let you recover from your wounds for a couple days before we give you any details" (this book).
Authors need to find that balance between a fast-paced story and one that is believable
That said it is good to see a reboot of the Alex Rider series and hopefully the next entry will see him tackle a worthy plot rather than a muddled excuse to bring him back.
As a disclaimer I am not a young adult but do enjoy the spy genre. In my time as a teenager we read the Bond novels and not teenage versions of them, but it is good to have you back Mr Rider.
