WARNING!: If you havent read all of the Alex Rider books, do not read this review. This review contains information form the other Alex Rider books. If you don't want the books to be ruined for you do not read this review. You have been warned. You may not sue me. Thank you.###Review: They need to add more after the end of the book. It leaves you wanting to see things from yassen's point of view like when he is on the plane with Alex. Anthony needs to write another book from bolth Alex's and Yassen's points of view. Huge fan and love the books!!! ~M. The crazy/insane genius. Read TQOM at 1245 res one. An amazing piece of Rick Riorden fan fic! A must read!!!

First, I loved the book! The one thing that bugged me was that if you go back and read Snakehead, Ash talks about Yassen shooting tons of people with John Rider, which doesnt go with this story because Yassen still had never killed with John. Sorry just had to share please correct me if Im wrong!

You have to read the rest of the books to know whats going on. It refers from other books. When reading this book you will experience. Action and suspence it will tell you all about yassans life. this it truly a must read.

I ordered the book because I had read all the others. I was disappointed when I realized it was about Yassen, but I have been completely drawn in. It is such an excellent book and well worth reading. It might be too graphic for the younger end of YA but it keeps you immersed in Yassen's world.

Although this book was the last released in the Alex Rider series, it really is the prequel to the entire series. This story focuses on Yassen's past and his path to becoming an assassin. Anthony Horowitz does a tremendous job blending Alex and Yassen's life together. One is able to see the hardships Yassen had to endure and really feel empathy for him. One is also able to gain a greater understanding and knowledge on the powerful organization of Scorpia. This book is definitely a must read for fans of the Alex Rider series.

Im confused. In snake head, it says Cossack and Hunter kill the commander. This happened in russian roulete too. Does that mean that Yasha (yassen) was Cossack in snake head? Still good book. Really liked it. Horowitz is a good author.

Mr. Gregorovich hasn’t always been the deadly, feared assassin that he is. No, as a boy he was sheltered and happy in his small town that seemed like a paradise. Now, he is the opposite of what he was, and there is no real way of getting him back to that state of peaceful living. Yasha Gregorovich was a lucky young kid who lived ever-joyfully with his parents and grandmother. One decision of one company changed everything. One factory leaked a life-threatening sickness. As he sees his parents have sacrificed their life for him and he sees everyone in the village either get blown up or killed by the sickness, his life takes a whole new path down a horrifying path. The story is about the road that Yassen Gregorovich was pushed down toward becoming Scorpia’s deadliest contract killer. The author Anthony Horowitz adds this final novel to his Alex Rider series, where Yassen Gregorovich makes few but important interferences in the grand plot. The book was written to explain how Yassen was made into this kind of person, and what led him to make all the decisions on the road. Horowitz does a wonderful job of illustrating how Yasha goes through his journey in Moscow and then in Italy. It was easy to feel how Yassen felt about his experiences, and it was helpful to have the book in first person to be able to have this element of inner thought and opinion. Also, the way that Mr. Horowitz tied in some parts of the rest of the series made the book feel more complete and also helped it feel like it was yet another book in the series. I think that Mr. Horowitz could’ve added a bit more of Yassen’s adulthood and the way to the scene to the end, or at least led much closer. I would most definitely recommend this amazing read to any person that is in their double-digit years because of the awesome work of art that it is, but make sure that if you do read this book that you have read all the ones before, due to the fact that it is still part of the series and that it is the last book of that series. I think the book is mostly directed towards teenagers, and if you are a teenager, do definitely read the series, without a doubt. Hopefully you enjoy the book as much as I did.

I need to read this. I'm still sad though because scorpia rising was the last one about alex from alex's point of view.
