Description

The final book in the #1 bestselling Alex Rider series! Alex Rider's life changed forever with the silent pull of a trigger. When Ian Rider died at the hands of the assassin Yassen Gregorovich, Alex, ready or not, was thrust into the world of international espionage-- the world's only teenage spy. Alex vowed revenge against Yassen and the two have battled ever since. Yet, years ago, it was none other than Alex's own father who trained and mentored Yassen, turning him into the killer he would eventually become. What makes us choose evil? Why did one boy choose to kill while another chose to risk his life to save others? In some ways, Alex Rider and Yassen Gregorovich are mirror images of each other. Yet the paths they traveled turned them into mortal enemies. This is Yassen's story-- A journey down a darkened path. International #1 bestseller Anthony Horowitz delivers a blockbuster thrill ride in this, his final Alex Rider novel. From the #1 internationally bestselling author of STORMBREAKER, ARK ANGEL, CROCODILE TEARS, SCORPIA RISING, and the rest of the acclaimed Alex Rider novels comes the spy thriller readers have been waiting for.

Professional reviews

"A splendid performance by Simon Prebble conveys the intrigue of this gripping story about the origins of Yassen, the Russian assassin in the Alex Rider thriller series. PrebbleOs narration embodies the 14-year-old protagonist, effectively conveying his fear and grief when he narrowly escapes a covert government attack on his village. PrebbleOs change in tone reveals YassenOs growing confidence as he matures and finds a place in his new world of espionage and danger. PrebbleOs assortment of international accents, including a credible Russian one, makes for compelling characters, while his impeccable timing and modulation create the highly charged moments of this listening experience.
