    1. In my opinion Scorpia Rising may be the best novel in a long and excellent series. The gadgetry has always been well thought out, the twists and the suspense is brilliant and the emotional aspects of the series is astounding. To convincingly portray how a teenage kid abused by so many people into becoming a hardened weapon is emotionally affected is superb.When I read it earlier this year I was blown away. For me coming to the end of a series I have appreciated is always gut wrenching to a degre [...]

    2. This novel starts with Zeljan Kurst, leader of Scorpia, a international terrorist organization,being asked by Yannis Ariston Xenopolos, a Greek billionaire with cancer, to return the Elgin Marbles to Greece. He is promised [Euro|€]40 million, half in advance. MI6 has found out about the visit and try to capture him due to a mole who was given a change of identity in exchange, but Scorpia agents in the museum disguised as visitors help Kurst to escape. He assigns the mission to the newest Scorp [...]

    3. I knew I was in trouble when the book cover announced that this was “The Final Mission”! This book was very different from all the others in the series. For starters, the plot had a LOT of background and setup that went on. We don’t even SEE Alex Rider until the book is HALF over. I think that was too long to wait. Basically, Scorpia is trying to show themselves as a force to be reckoned with, so they hatch a plan to not only pull off a major league crime, but pin it on Alex. There were fl [...]

    4. It’s finally here: the last Alex Rider. An author faces a lot of pressure writing the last book of a popular series. And up to now, Horowitz has done well to tell the same story in so many different ways.What impressed me with this series was that woven in between all the killing and running was interesting information about world issues that would otherwise be relegated to the realm of adults: refugees and the criminals who exploit them; medical research and the noble and corrupt interests th [...]

    5. I have enjoyed this genre of books since i was a young teenager; Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew.y series that demonstrated empowered young people pitting their wits against unscrupulous adults. As a parent I am still interested in what young people are reading. Enter Alex Rider. I have followed Alex from the beginning. Not your typical hero. He has been groomed against his will. He has been used against his will. He has lost every loving relationship save Jack. And he is doomed to lose her too. He knows [...]

    6. I just can't wait to see how it ends! I feel as though I've been reading this series forever!

    7. SPOILER ALERT!!I've been reading this series since I was very young and I remember enjoying it a lot. I was excited to see that the author had written another one, and I was also sad it was going to end. These books, I remembered, were a great series for boys and it was one of the first middle grade series I read. It is a little difficult to explain this book because it is the last in the series. You would have to read the whole series to understand what it going on. I'll admit it, I don't remem [...]

    8. Wow, this book started out super good! I loved it! But I didn't like the way it ended! It was very sad, I think he could have ended it much better. Poor Alex!

    9. I was SO sad to crack the cover of this 9th and final Alex Rider bookd (but excited at the same time because, hello, it's a new Alex Rider book!). I LOVE Alex. He's a terrific character of my favorite characters ever. I did not want to say goodbye to him forever. It would be like saying goodbye to a dear friend.I can understand why it had to end, thoughif Anthony H. wanted to preserve some realism, Alex's series couldn't be like Nancy Drew or the Hardy Boys, which go on forever and ever with the [...]

    10. Man. This year is killing me. Every month, it seems, another one of my favorite series comes to an end. There was Mockingjay and Last Sacrifice last year, then this year Wicked Lovely's last book Darkest Mercy, A Prince Among Frogs (The Frog Princess), The Legacy (The Declaration), etc. Now the Alex Rider series is over. Am I sad? Definitely. Was this book just as good as the last 8? Yes!Alex has finally turned 15; he's growing up and moving on with his life. It's been months since he last saw a [...]

    11. The first thing I said when I finished "Scorpia Rising" was "WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK!??!", then I raged for a little while and then I went to bed. But lets start with the beginning.I was thrilled when I found out that the last Alex Rider book was going to be about Scorpia. "Scorpia" was always my favourite Alex Rider book (they're such BAMFS!) and I was sure that Alex was going to go out with a bang. And for a while it actually looked like he was going to do exactly that."Scorpia Rising" is separat [...]

    12. I've 'rode' these books from the beginning to the end, starting in sixth grade. (You see what I did there, don't you?) In my honest opinion, they kept getting better as each one came. Alex grew, and with him, the threats grew as well. Although Alex had many enemies, his biggest enemy was Scorpia, which stood for Sabotage, Corruption, Intelligence, and Assassination. He's forced them down before, but they won't stay down for long. The first part of the book is written through Scorpia's point of v [...]

Based on what i read on Horowitz blog this book sounds like its going to be alot better than that horrible Crocidile tears. i hated that book, too predictable.I can't wait to read this though because the best organization Scorpia is Back!!!! Someone from all the books are going to die, i bet its going to be Jack.Well i'll edit this after i read it on my birthday (April 5th, the day it comes out!!!!)

    14. This book was pretty much the same as all the other ones, though the ending was a little different. But it still was pretty good. At some parts it was a little boring, but overall, it was a good ending to the story of Alex Rider.

    16. As Britain's top spy, working for M16, Alex Rider has battled numerous villains. He's taken down some of the world's most brilliant criminal masterminds and has proven again and again how brave, resourceful, and efficient he is. Alex has done all this despite being just fifteen years old. But in "Scorpia Rising", Alex faces his very last mission of all. And this is one he might not come home from.It is with a heavy heart that I write this review. I have been a fan of Alex Rider for a very long t [...]

    17. This is the ninth and final book in the Alex Rider series, and it's best for those who have read other books because Horowitz brings back characters and events from those stories. Alex is back in school, with a part in the school musical and the captain's spot on the football team. He's got an active life, and his beloved guardian, Jack Starbright, is debating leaving him to go back to America to care for her very ill father. Neither of them has any intention of ever dealing with MI6 again until [...]

    18. The conclusion of the Alex Rider series. Scorpia, reeling from two devastating failures caused by Alex, is hired by a dying Greek multibillionaire to have the Elgin marbles (of British Museum fame) returned to their rightful country. MI-6 is manipulated into sending Alex and Jack Starbright to Egypt to infiltrate an international school, where it believes a kidnapping or hostage situation is imminent. Meanwhile, Alex is being set-up to take the blame of the assasination of the U.S. Secretary of [...]

    20. I ALMOST got through this one without tearing up. Not quite though, because Horowitz is a life-ruiner :P. Anyway, this makes me wonder where he's going to go now that we've got another book out in June.

    22. Review for Scorpia Rising by Anthony Horowitz.Spoiler ALERTMonth/Year read-January, 2013Rating, out of 5- 5 stars upon 5 starsIn my opinion, this book is one of the very few who actually make way to the soft spot in my heart which is reserved for special books alone. Scorpia Rising was, I must say not predictable. No, not at all. I know most people say so, and I am sorry, but that is not true. If there are any people out there who were able to predict the heart wrenching moments of this book, co [...]

    23. Guilty because this book has been sitting on my shelf for exactly 1 year.I have never read the Alex Rider series before, but this was something that I can compare to James Bond movies. Not Jason Bourne's type, but more toward James Bond because of the MI6 involvement.Fast paced, action packed for a young adult novel.

    27. Read the review at iLive, iLaugh, iLove Books.This series has always been one of my favorites. It's different from what I usually read. That is: fantasy, science fiction, paranormal, the like. But sometimes I enjoy middle grade books more because they're just more fun, more adventurous. I began reading this series in seventh grade, and I'm disappointed to see that this is the end.Alex Rider is supposed to be history. He's not supposed to enter MI6, ever again. But Scorpia's back. And this time, [...]
