One bullet. One life. The end starts here. The book I will be presenting and exploring a theme of is Scorpia Rising, the last book in the Alex Rider series. This book and the series by Anthony Horowitz are for young teens. In Scorpia Rising, Scorpia is trying to turn Alex Rider, the main character into a traitor against M16, Britain's top-secret intelligence agency.

I think the main theme is with every bad thing there is a good side, but with every good thing there is a bad side. So let’s break this main theme into pieces. A bad thing - *quote*. In this scene of the book, Alex’s caretaker and lifelong friend, Jack Starbright, is killed by unknowingly sitting on 30 pounds of explosives in a car.

The good side - *quote*. In this scene, Alex killed a clone of him named Julius. This clone has been dreaming for more than a year to kill Alex and was one of the people who contributed in killing Jack. By killing this clone, Alex has only killed one of the enemies. But killing something is better than nothing in this case.
A good thing would be that Alex has saved so many people and countries from destruction so maybe being a spy wasn’t so bad after all but the bad side is that he found and lost a best friend causing a lot of emotional pain and he now has to carry a life-time of memories. *quote*

So let me ask you one question: How much would you do for something that you want? Keep in mind that with every bad thing there is a good side, but with every good thing there is a bad side cause who said life was fair? Especially not to

    Alex Rider: Stormbreaker 1) I liked this book. It was filled with action and suspense. But I didn’t like how it was far-fetched. A 14 year old that knew all different types of karate, languages, moves, and almost taught like a spy from birth. But other than that, I really liked the book. I like how everything was detailed. 2) A. The main characters are Alex Rider, Ian Rider (dead, but an important name), Yassen Gregorovich, and Herold Sayle. B. The setting of this book is Present day in London…
