Description

The mission that started it all---now in a graphic novel format!

The first in the # 1 New York Times bestselling  Alex Rider series, Stormbreaker, in a brand-new format, with bold, edgy, manga-like illustrations that bring Alex Rider to life in a way not seen before. For existing fans of the series, this graphic novel will be a must-have; for those yet to discover Stormbreaker, this will be the perfect introduction.


They told him his uncle died in an accident. He wasn't wearing his seatbelt, they said. But when fourteen-year-old Alex finds his uncle's windshield riddled with bullet holes, he knows it was no accident. What he doesn't know yet is that his uncle was killed while on a top-secret mission. But he is about to, and once he does, there is no turning back. Finding himself in the middle of terrorists, Alex must outsmart the people who want him dead. The government has given him the technology, but only he can provide the courage. Should he fail, every child in England will be murdered in cold blood.

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 I loved this book because it is suspenseful and serious with a splash of humour. -- 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
