Alex Rider is now an IMDb TV/Amazon Original Series!

Alex Rider is an orphan turned teen superspy who's saving the world one mission at a time—from #1 New York Times bestselling author!

Alex Rider, teen spy, has always been told he is the spitting image of the father he never knew. But when Alex learns that his father may have been an assassin for the most lethal and powerful terrorist organization in the world, Scorpia, his world shatters. Now Scorpia wants Alex on their side, and Alex no longer has the strength to fight them. That is, until he learns of Scorpia’s latest plot: an operation known only as “Invisible Sword” that will result in the death of thousands of people. Can Alex prevent the slaughter, or will Scorpia prove once and for all that the terror will not be stopped?

From the author of Magpie Murders and Moriarty.


  • Alex Battles His Past

    By Prince Cor
    Alex's investigation of Scorpia soon turns into his most difficult mission yet. A prominent Scorpia leader brings Alex face-to-face with his father's past, filling him with confusion and inner turmoil. Feeling betrayed by MI6, Alex begins his training with Scorpia. All the while the clock is ticking down to Scorpia's next attack, a sophisticated plot which will kill thousands, including Alex. The author really makes you care about the characters in this story. The next-to-last chapter is incredible as Alex relives the loss of his parents, and anger and hurt give way to reconciliation. The last pages are terrifying and yet somehow beautiful at the same time. Such a gifted author. My favorite book in this superb series.

    This book is tied for first with Ark Angel and Scorpia Rising in my mind. I'm a 12 year old who loves the Alex Rider books and this book is like a book heaven! I love how Anthony Horowitz describes Alex's battle against himself trying to decide MI6 or his dad's legacy. There are so many twists and turns in this book and it is definitely a must read. It kept me on the edge of my seat-or wherever I was reading it- the whole time. Before I realized there was another book, I was really sad about the last chapter. I don't want to give anything away though. I recommend this book for 13 year olds and older. -Little Young Me 🤗
