(Age: 13+) Recommended. Alex Rider: Never Say Die is book 11 in the series for which Anthony Horowitz said he'd never write an another action-packed novel. After a 5 year hiatus, and now 15-years old, Alex Rider, is an ex-MI6 agent currently living in the United States with his friend, Sabrina. One day, Alex receives an email from his old caretaker and close friend, Jack Starbright, whom he thought was dead. Alex then travels to Cairo, Egypt, Jack's last known whereabouts. As the book progresses, Alex travels to many locations across the globe, slowly finding out where Jack is. He also discovers a plot to kidnap the children of the world's richest people.
Throughout the book, Anthony Horowitz uses incredible description and storytelling to make a story that is not only intriguing and thrilling, but also engaging and thought-provoking. This unbelievable book constantly entertains and seems to surpass all other books in the Alex Rider series.
Alex Rider: Never Say Die will keep you on the edge of your seat and wanting more.
