       Alex Rider, a fourteen-year old boy in Europe, was forced to take on his uncle's job as an MI6 spy after he was murdered in his car on the way home from an assignment. Alex was persuaded to stay with the organization, and over time, performed several high-risk duties they had allotted him. Just when everyone thought all was well, disaster struck. An infamous celebrity, known for his kind and generous ways, had invented a new video game. A hit, the greatest of the century...until its true power was revealed. Alex would soon have to face the ultimate test, and risk everything. He will be pushed to his mental and physical limits as he tries to convince the world the video game is a death trap. In order to stop the game though, he has to stop the maker...and time is running out. I recommend this book to non-stop, heart-pounding action lovers looking for a thrill. This is an action-packed, high intensity novel that will keep you at the edge of your seat!  (Kaylin H, Maroa Forsyth Middle School, Illinois)
