The first book in the number one bestselling Alex Rider series.

When his guardian dies in suspicious circumstances, fourteen-year-old Alex Rider finds his world turned upside down. Forcibly recruited into MI6, Alex has to take part in gruelling SAS training exercises. Then, armed with his own special set of secret gadgets, he's off on his first mission to Cornwall, where Middle-Eastern multi-billionaire Herod Sayle is producing his state-of-the-art Stormbreaker computers. Sayle has offered to give one free to every school in the country - but there's more to the gift than meets the eye.

Industry Reviews

I enjoyed it a lot because I wanted to read on and see the methods he would use and the ways he thought of to escape. -- Stelios Gavrielides * Teen Titles *
I loved this book because it is suspenseful and serious with a splash of humour. It has such a variety of character personalities and it's just as good as the other books in the Alex Rider series, which I'm really enjoying reading my way through. -- First News * First News *
I loved this book because it is suspenseful and serious with a splash of humour. -- First News * First News *
A fabulous story that crackles with suspense and daring and shows that a bit of cheek will take you a very long way [...] A great, pacy read. * Love Reading 4 Kids *
Even though there are no illustrations, the brilliant descriptions really bring the story to life. When I read it I really feel into the scenes and I always want to know what will happen next. -- Young Reviewer * The Guardian Online *
Horowitz somehow manages to grab your attention in each and every way, whether it is suspense or a heartfelt moment. -- Reader Review * Teen Titles *
Packed with action, excitement and peril, the first book in this thrilling series will leave you keen to read the next instalment. * The Week *

I would buy this again and again, so happy
