Product description

Or: how to save the world in super style. Epic Alex. The very first mission that primed him for world domination. Alex Rider is just a normal fourteen-year-old kid. He doesn’t know how to ski down mountains on an ironing board or walk the tightrope between skyscrapers. Yet. Then the doorbell rings. Alex’s guardian has been murdered, and Alex is being recruited into MI6 as its youngest ever spy. That’s the start. And by the end of this book, Alex will face his first utterly evil villain. His name is Herod. Our guess: probably BAD.
