“Sometimes it’s the tiniest things that can mean the difference between life and death.”
The sniper’s bullet nearly killed him. But Alex Rider managed to survive . . . just in time for more trouble to come his way. When kidnappers attempt to snatch a fellow patient from the exclusive hospital where Alex is recovering, he knows he has to stop him. But the boy he saves is no ordinary patient: He is the son of Nikolai Drevin, one of the richest men in the world. The eccentric billionaire has been targeted by Force Three, a group of eco-terrorists who claim his project Ark Angel—the first luxury hotel in outer space—is a danger to the environment. Soon Alex discovers that Force Three will stop at nothing to destroy Ark Angel, even if it means sending four hundred tons of molten glass and steel hurtling down to Earth and killing millions . . . unless Alex can stop them.
He’s at it again . . .
If a sniper’s bullet can’t stop him, then what can? I am very sorry if you are getting tired of Alex saving the world, but he will keep at it. Forever. Or at least until someone manages to kill the boy.
Anyway, This book, in my opinion, is it is superb. I think out of all the other books in the series, this one has been my favorite one not only because of the action but all your questions you may have had in the beginning of the book would surely be answered later on.
“You must have been going very fast.”
“I was, until I hit the fence.
“Was it fate? Was it destiny?”
“I think it was Alan Blunt.”
“It sometimes seemed to Alex that the whole universe was against him. Getting away from FLamingo Bay had almost killed him. It had been an exhausting struggle against time, the elements, and Drevin’s firepower.
And now he was going back.
It was the CIA agent, Ed Shulsky, who had made it happen.
Alex, you know the place. I need you to tell me where they’re holding Tamara. You can give me a layout of the island. Anyway, we don’t have much time. You saw for yourself. The rocket is on its way, and if what you’ve told me is true-“
It is.” Alex felt a spurt of annoyance. Why should the American doubt, even for a moment, what he said? Was it perhaps because he was only fourteen?
Shulsky noticed his reaction. “I’m sorry. That was out of line. But this plan of his, Ark Angel…Washington…” He shook his head. “It’s beyond anything we could have imagined. And that’s why we have to take him out. Right now. We don’t have time to drop you off.”
But you’re too late,” Alex argued. “Gabriel 7 has gone. What are going to do? Shoot it down?”
“Your temperature’s normal, though I’d say it’s the only thing about you that is.”
“I don’t know what I’d do without you. There’s no one else to look after me. And it’s not just that. I sometimes think you’re the only person who really knows me. I only feel normal when I’m with you.”
