    This book was really touching, because Alex gets betrayed by a lot of people.In the end he realizes his godfather Ash is working against him and the ASIS knew this from the start. The details were a bit boring though

    When Alex Rider is confronted by an Asian gang that is actually run by a member of scorpia there is no let down of action

    I loved this book so much!!! I like the way Horowitz made an unexpected twist at the end of the book, although it was quite hard to get into. But that was so worth it!!!!!!!!!!
