But when fourteen-year-old Alex finds his uncle's windshield riddled with bullet holes, he knows it was no accident. What he doesn't know yet is that his uncle was killed while on a top-secret mission. But he is about to, and once he does, there is no turning back. Finding himself in the middle of terrorists, Alex must outsmart the people who want him dead. The government has given him the technology, but only he can provide the courage.

One day Alex Rider wakes up and finds out that his uncle, Ian Rider, a bank worker, has DIED in a car crash. The police say that he wasn't wearing a seat belt. Huh?? Alex knows that Ian ALWAYS wears a seatbelt when driving. So, he decides to go find his car. Wait......Are those bullet holes??? Soon, Alex learns that the bank isn't really a bank and that Ian Rider is actually a spy for MI6! He also learns that the bank is now his legal guardian, and he has no choice but to go on a DANGEROUS mission. An Egyptian millionaire named Herod Sayle is giving away cool new computers to every school in England! But MI6 thinks something is wrong. Alex will have to find out what. Will he discover Mr. Sayle's secret? More importantly, will he survive the mission? The book was really exciting! It had a lot of action and adventure.

Alex Rider is such a page-turner series written by Anthony Horowitz!! You’ll feel like your running along with him every step of the way!! Alex Rider is definitely a relatable character too. Ok here’s a small synopsis of the series. Alex Rider is a 14 year old ordinary English schoolboy until....his uncle dies mysteriously in a car crash. He knows somethings not as it seems.... but then he gets recruited for the MI6 (British Military Intelligence) and finds out his uncle was a spy too! And Alex, may just be there secret weapon! All of a sudden he gets thrown into MANY dangerous, extreme, crazy, daredevil mission. And failure either means-LIFE. or DEATH. I definitely recommend this series too!! It’s a perfect action packed, plot twister series for teens! There is also a new Alex Rider show on Prime Video for free too! Which is based off of the 2nd book and is TV-14+. This series is a great one to lure you into many hours of fun and reading! This series should be for 5th grade and up/11+ because it does a lot of action, violence, some blood and things younger people might not understand. Alex Rider Saving the world one mission at a time Action, adrenaline, adventure Read them now!
