Publisher's Summary

Following the shocking events of Never Say Die, Alex Rider's world has changed: his biggest enemy, the evil organization Scorpia, has been destroyed. Alex is hoping his life can finally go back to normal, that he can go to school and spend time with his friends - but very quickly everything changes. A new and dangerous criminal organisation - Nightshade - is rising.

When Alex discovers they've planned a mysterious attack on London, he will stop at nothing to take them down. But protecting his home city means facing off against a ruthless new enemy and putting his life at stake, again. And this time, there's no one to save him if he makes a mistake.

One of the best Alex Rider novels so far.

Story was excellent. Found narration not as good as Oliver Chris and having listened to the voice of oliver Chris narrating these for around 18 years it was hard to adjust to a new reader. Story was great.

A breath of fresh air :0

This book has everything you want from an Alex Rider book. Action, the thrills, the tense moments and who could forget the brand new escape scene. Alex is also really put toward the test this time around, especially towards the end of the novel. The ending was a fantastic cliffhanger, paving the way to future books.
I would whole-heartedly recommend this to any Alex Rider enthusiast.

Alex Rider Returns

Another gripping Alex Rider story. Perhaps a little less credible in places than his previous adventures but there's still a lot to enjoy. Smithers is missed though.

Loved it!!

Another fab Alex rider book!! It’s interesting seeing little Easter eggs to the current political situation in the US scattered throughout. All in all a super gripping non-stop action page turner.
