The M16 have found only one link to the supposed "accidental" deaths of two of the world's most
powerful men : both had a son attending
Point Blanc Academy - an exclusive school for rebellious rich kids, run
by Dr Grief. Armed with a false ID and a new collection of cool disguised gadgets, Alex must go to the academy as a
pupil and establish the truth about what's really happening there.

When I first read stormbreaker I found it pretty good, I could hardly stop reading when I read the second one I was amazed, this one is so much better it was brilliant, I loved it. It's probably, in my opinion anyway, the best of all the Alex Rider books. The action was great and it's a bit more sinister and more exciting then the first one. If you read the first Alex Rider book I highly recommand you read this one.

This was a great book, overall. Alex Rider gets caught moving a huge crane, and the police catch him. MI6 wants him to do something else, or face the police.
So, almost forced, Alex Rider has to go and do another one of his missions. I can understand why he wouldn't want to do them, but I myself would be very excited.
On this mission, Alex will go to a rich-boys school. First, he stays at the family's house (mansion?) that he is to pretend to be in the family. He has a sister, Fiona, in this identity. Fiona, of course, really doesn't like him. I can't see why. XP. After narrowly saving Fiona, Alex rejects her when she asks him to do something.
Then, he is picked up and then he's at the school. He meets one friend, who seems to be the only one to differ from the other boys. But why? When I read the answer, I was thrilled, as well as creeped out.
This isn't really a must-read, but it's still wonderful, but be prepared for some twists, and to be totally creeped out!

The second Alex Rider book, this is much better than Stormbreaker. It starts right from the begining with action and suspense as you witness an assasin executing his plot to assasinate a very rich American.MI6 has been noticing other mysterious deaths of wealthy men, the one thing they have in common is all of their sons go to a school called Point Blanc. Alex is sent to Point Blanc to investigate and is caught up in the plot of a crazy scientist. Will Alex survive!?!?

I think this is so much better than Stormbreaker. Unlike Stormbreaker it starts out with suspense. Try it!!!

Alex Rider is a reluctant MI6 spy. He is known well for his amazing skill and intelligence for his age and is MI6's secret weapon...deadly. When two accidental deaths reveal a link alex rider is brought in to go undercover and get the necessary evidence. The reader is gripped with suspense, daring and cheek and this book moves faster and faster. it is full of action and excitement and definately worth a read.

This Book is another success by Anthony Horrowits. It has everything! Action, mystery, adventure, you name it! Point Blank is very well writen and keeps you at the edge of your seat. It is about a boy who is a (secret government agent from MI6) that has to go to a school for Risch peoples sons and daughters. When Alex gets there he notices that everyone acts the same. Why is that? Thats Alexs question. Read this book to find out why. It's great! Read it bye it whatever just get it! Bye.
