Title: Scorpia Rising
Author: Anthony Horowitz
Release Date: March 22nd 2011
Publisher: Philomel
SynopsisScorpia has dogged Alex Rider for most of his life. They killed his parents, they did their best to con Alex into turning traitor, and they just keep coming back with more power. Now the world's most dangerous terrorist organization is playing with fire in the world's most combustible land: the Middle East. No one knows Scorpia like Alex. And no one knows how best to get to Alex like Scorpia. Until now.

The chases have never been more intense, the fights more treacherous, or the risks so perilous to mankind. And this time, Alex won't get away.

Why I'm waiting on it: I've loved the Alex Rider series since I was a kid, so to see that the last one is finally coming out made me ecstatic. Although I've fallen a little behind with the series I'll have to set aside a few weekends and read them all before I get this one.

What are you waiting on?

  8. I actually haven't read any of this series, I think the first movie ruined it for me. I will have to forget the movie so I can try out the series!

    Our WOW pick is at BookSake.
