Waterstones Says

The book that introduced teen super-spy Alex Rider to millions of enthralled fans, Stormbreaker is an unstoppable juggernaut of high-octane thrills, action set-pieces and wire-taut narrative tension. Investigating a shadowy individual who is supplying suspicious computers to schools, our young hero embarks on his first top secret mission.

In the first book in the number one bestselling Alex Rider series by Anthony Horowitz, fourteen-year-old Alex is forcibly recruited into MI6.

Armed with secret gadgets, he is sent to investigate Herod Sayle, a man who is offering state-of-the-art Stormbreaker computers to every school in the country. But the teenage spy soon finds himself in mortal danger.

MEDIA REVIEWS

I enjoyed it a lot because I wanted to read on and see the methods he would use and the ways he thought of to escape. - Stelios Gavrielides, Teen Titles

I loved this book because it is suspenseful and serious with a splash of humour. It has such a variety of character personalities and it’s just as good as the other books in the Alex Rider series, which I’m really enjoying reading my way through. - First News, First News

A fabulous story that crackles with suspense and daring and shows that a bit of cheek will take you a very long way […] A great, pacy read. - Love Reading 4 Kids

Even though there are no illustrations, the brilliant descriptions really bring the story to life. When I read it I really feel into the scenes and I always want to know what will happen next. - Young Reviewer, The Guardian Online

Horowitz somehow manages to grab your attention in each and every way, whether it is suspense or a heartfelt moment. - Reader Review, Teen Titles

Packed with action, excitement and peril, the first book in this thrilling series will leave you keen to read the next instalment. - The Week

Finding books to engage boys in reading can be tricky, but I personally know many for whom the Alex Rider series (Stormbreaker being the first) was a total game-changer. - Top 50 Books Every Child Should Read, Good Housekeeping
