Synopsis: Following the events of Scorpia Rising, Alex relocates to San Francisco as he slowly recovers from the tragic death of his best friend and caregiver, Jack Starbright, at the hands of terrorists working for SCORPIA. With Jack gone, Alex feels lost and alone, but then, out of the blue, he receives a cryptic email–just three words long, but enough to make Alex believe that Jack may be alive. Armed with this shred of hope, Alex boards a flight bound for Egypt and embarks on a dubious quest to track Jack down.
Yet SCORPIA knows Alex’s weakness. And the question of whether Jack is alive soon takes a backseat to a chilling new terrorist plot–one that will play with Alex’s mind as he grasps the magnitude of what is at stake.
From Egypt to France to Wales, from luxury yachts to abandoned coal mines, Alex traverses a minefield of dangers and cryptic clues as he fights to discover the truth.
Comments: This book starts off six months after the book Scorpia Rising, which was supose to be the last book. Horowitz did a great job, especially since the book is coming out six years later. I was going to reread the series, but Horowitz gave enough details that I didn’t feel lost when things were referenced from another book(I still might reread, just because I enjoyed them). This is a fast pace, action filled adventure. Looking forward to seeing the next book in summer 2018.
