LOVE this book especially the ending!! 13+ When Alex goes off searching for his destiny and finds it in a assassins cult called Scorpia he must truly ask himself, Who am I? Filled with Action, suspense, gunfights, and cool secret spy gear. ENJOY!!

Before starting this I would advise you to read all the previous books before this one because if you do not, you will be confused and those book will be spoiled. In Scorpia by Anthony Horowitz, Alex Rider, a teenage spy for MI6, gets entangled with a criminal group called Scorpia. He learns that his father was a part of it and so was Yassen Gregorovich (who told him) before he died. After he escapes, Alan Blunt, the head of MI6, informs him that Scorpia has a plan to kill every British child in England. So Alex gets sent back to Scorpia as a double agent to prevent Scorpia's plan, Invisible Sword. He also learns something about his father that shocked him. Alex had also been injected with a nanoshell but for a special reason and the only reason he said yes was because of the doctor and the lame excuse of “more vitamins”. Scorpia is proceeding with Invisible Sword is for money because a rich, Middle Eastern man wants to end the American-British alliance and will pay them 25 million dollars. The way Scorpia planned this is by secretly putting nanoshells in vaccines for Landon school kids which contain a powerful poison contained in a golden sphere, so the poison won't hit the heart until the right time. Then Scorpia will detonate the spheres (that are only a billionth of a hair long) by sending terahertz(radio) waves to destroy the golden shells and let the poison kill them. [5/5 from me :)] Find out what happens!
