Teenage spy tackles eco-terrorists

May 09, 2006|by ROBERT KELLER

"Ark Angel," the newest book by Anthony Horowitz, will keep readers on the edge of their seat. It is the sixth book in the series of Alex Rider adventures.

Teenager Alex Rider is a spy for the British spy group MI6. His uncle, Ian Rider, was a spy and, earlier in the series, had trained his nephew. After his uncle dies, Alex is recruited by MI6 and sent on a series of missions.

At the end of book five, a sniper shoots Alex. "Ark Angel" opens as Alex is rushed to the hospital. He recovers and eventually accepts another mission from MI6, during which he saves a boy's life. The boy is the son of a multibillionaire businessman, who notices Alex's skills. After a series of dangerous events, including a murder, Alex has a lot suspicion about this man.

This book is so good, I couldn't put it down. The action in this book kept me reading to the end. I had a rough time finding a time to put this down. It kept me in suspense the whole way through. There were very few pages without action.

The characters in the book are always on the move, going from country to country. Also, Horowitz does a great job of bringing to life the characters and plot.

I give this book 10 out of 10 rifle scopes.
