The Alex Rider series by Anthony Horowitz

The Alex Rider series has been a phenomenal success since the first book, Stormbreaker, was published in 2000. Across twelve books and counting, the teenage spy has evaded the machinations of Scorpia, made lifelong friends and defeated deadly enemies along the way. The series sold more than 19 million copies worldwide and the books are popular among the teenage age group of 9-14.

In 2006 the first book was made into a feature film by the director of 1996’s Doctor Who. Sony Pictures Television is now making it as a TV series for Prime Video. Season 1 aired in 2020, adapting the second book Point Blanc, and Season 2’s take on Eagle Strike is forthcoming.
