Top 10 Alex Rider Books


The Top Ten

1 Scorpia

I have all 10 Alex Riders and the 4 short stories, accident in Nice is the Best, and they are all great but my personal favourite is Scorpia just because of the shere depth it gets into about personal life

A great book for the reason of the story line. SPOILER ALERT. Mrs Rothman is obviously tricking Alex and he probably knows it but he is still saying Maybe. In my opinion, Spy book of the decade. Yes, ahead of James Bond! - GGaming

"Great cliffhanger at the end great book deserves to be first! "

I think this is the best of the 9 original Alex Rider books. It has great depth, excitement and a brilliant back-story to Alex's past. Russian Roulette, despite not really featuring Alex, is also excellent - certainly the darkest and most grown-up. There are many parallels between Roulette and Scorpia.

Having just read Never Say Die, I would certainly say this is almost as good as (or maybe equal to) Scorpia.

In my opinion, Crocodile Tears and Snakehead are the two AR books which are not as good as the others.

2 Scorpia Rising

This one just got darker, grittier and far more brutal than any of the others; a phenomenal finale and so much coming to fruition.

3 Crocodile Tears

I love this it is full of surprises! Desmond McCain is boss - CityGuru

4 Eagle Strike

Why number 9? Easily #1. Damian cray is the ultimate villain and amazing setup for the next one. My personal favorite.

Alex rider does it on his own! it just shows he dose not need any help. He is a talented spi

5 Ark Angel

Ark Angel is great, especially with the battle in space at the end - ShuhBanggg
