Publisher Comments:

The snipers 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.

Synopsis:

The group will stop at nothing to destroy the project, even if it means killing millions of innocent people, unless Alex can stop them.

Ark Angel By: Anthony Horowitz

This time, Alex Rider may not live to celebrate his 15th birthday. Luck has always been on his side, but now it seems to have abandoned him at the worst time possible. Ark Angel is all about Alex stopping one of the most powerful men in the world, Nikolei Drevin. To stop him and to save the world for the 6th time, he must journey into outer space to relocate the world’s ticking murder weapon: a deadly bomb. “There was the bomb, a six-figure display, rapidly counting down: 27:07:05. Alex checked his watch. Yes. Three minutes past four. He had just twenty-seven minutes left.” In my opinion, Ark Angel is a true page-turner and builds suspense. The main theme of Ark Angel is showing courage under stress and anxiety. Alex Rider does an excellent job of displaying courage at his young age.
