Never Say Die (Alex Rider #11) by Anthony Horowitz
1st June 2017
Find it on Goodreads
Following the events of Scorpia Rising, Alex relocates to San Francisco as he slowly recovers from the tragic death of his best friend and caregiver, Jack Starbright, at the hands of terrorists working for SCORPIA. With Jack gone, Alex feels lost and alone, but then, out of the blue, he receives a cryptic email--just three words long, but enough to make Alex believe that Jack may be alive. Armed with this shred of hope, Alex boards a flight bound for Egypt and embarks on a dubious quest to track Jack down.

Yet SCORPIA knows Alex's weakness. And the question of whether Jack is alive soon takes a backseat to a chilling new terrorist plot-one that will determine the lives of many.
From Egypt to France to Wales, from luxury yachts to abandoned coal mines, Alex traverses a minefield of dangers and cryptic clues as he fights to discover the truth. The #1 New York Times bestselling series, perfect for fans of James Bond, Jason Steed and Jason Bourne, is back with a vengeance! (f

I am RIDICULOUSLY excited for this book. I was the biggest Alex Rider fan when I was younger, and I am so happy there's going to be another book in the series! The way the last book ended was kind of sad and I always felt everything wasn't fully resolved, so I'm really glad we get to see Alex again and find out what he's been up to. Plus, Jack might be alive?! I hope she is, because I was devastated when she died in Scorpia Rising. In any case, I need this book. I'm looking forward to seeing how Alex is faring in San Francisco (and living with Sabina?! I always thought that was a bit weird). I'm also curious as to what Mrs Jones's role in this will be, because it's going to be so awkward when (I'm assuming when) she gets in touch with Alex again... I must admit, while I am immensely excited for this book, I am also a bit worried it will ruin the series. Will just have to keep hoping it will be as good as all the others - not long to wait now!

What are you waiting on this week?

  1. It's good you're getting another book for this series if the previous last book ended disappointedly! I haven't read these books, but I think I saw the movie years ago? I don't have a good memory of it though, so I guess it didn't leave much of an impression on me.

    1. Oh the movie was not good... I remember being so disappointed when it came out! I try to pretend it doesn't exist - same with the Avatar: The Last Airbender movie. It never happened.

  2. Hmmm, I never read any of the Alex Rider books when I was younger! I feel like my older brother did, because the author's name looks familiar. I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

    Have a fabulous week, Liz. =)
