Publisher Comments:

Shot outside the offices of M16 and left for dead by Scorpia, Alex Rider awakens in a top-secret hospital, glad simply to be alive. But danger has a way of following Alex, and when the boy in the next room is the victim of a kidnapping attempt, it is Alex who saves him — only to be kidnapped himself. The man behind the kidnapping? None other than Nikolei Drevin, wealthiest developer in the world, and the man who single-handedly is funding the first luxury hotel in outer space, Ark Angel. Yet the project is hemorrhaging millions of dollars along the way, and Drevin will stop at nothing to cease the bleeding. Even if it means blowing up Ark Angel. Even if it means sacrificing his only son...

Featuring the most inventive chase scenes of the series, Ark Angel takes the New York Times bestselling Alex Rider Adventures to new heights and thrills.

Review:

"The action-filled plot develops quickly and keeps readers on the edge of their seats." School Library Journal

Review:

"[I]maginative gadgets and the breakneck action..." Booklist

Synopsis:

Continuing the adventures of the teenage superspy, Ark Angel sees Alex forced back into action when a vicious terrorist group takes him prisoner. To defeat his enemy, Alex will have to push himself to the limits — and beyond...

Synopsis:

The ultimate action-fueled end-of-the-world conspiracy trilogy from #1 New York Times bestselling author D.J. MacHale

THEY CAME FROM THE SKY

parachuting out of military helicopters to invade Tucker Pierces idyllic hometown on Pemberwick Island, Maine.

 

They call themselves SYLO and they are a secret branch of the U.S. Navy. SYLOs commander, Captain Granger, informs Pemberwick residents that the island has been hit by a lethal virus and must be quarantined. Now Pemberwick is cut off from the outside world.

 

Tucker believes theres more to SYLOs story. He was on the sidelines when the high school running back dropped dead with no warning. He saw the bizarre midnight explosion over the ocean, and the mysterious singing aircraft that travel like shadows through the night sky. He tasted the Ruby—and experienced the powers it gave him—for himself.

 

What all this means, SYLO isnt saying. Only Tucker holds the clues that can solve this deadly mystery.

 

LOOK TO THE SKY

because Pemberwick is only the first stop.
