Never Say Die by Anthony Horowitz

5 stars

Reviewed by Makenna.

The 11th book in the Alex Rider Series (one of my favorites--I didn't know there was a new book till they handed it to me at the library), Never Say Die is fast-paced and thrilling. It is well-written and the plot is very well-sculpted. I loved it as much as the first ten and I recommend the entire series.

As far as content goes, the book is very clean. There is no language and no sexual content. As with the rest of the series, the only potential issue is violence, as the book centers on a teenaged spy, terrorists, and a plot that has the potential to kill a large group of people. Alex is almost always in mortal danger, and the villains of the story suffer extreme injury. There are deaths, but they are not particularly gruesome in description. Due to violence, readers younger than twelve should use caution when reading Never Say Die and its counterparts.

All in all, the book is an excellent installment (and a nice surprise for me) in an awesome series, and I would recommend to anyone looking for a good, exciting read.
