Alex Rider Books


There are 12 books in the main Alex Rider Series

Alex was surrounded by 7 of the most dangerous and unpredictable people on the planet. It was just a question of which one would kill him first.” ― Anthony Horowitz, Nightshade

What are the Alex Rider books about?

A teenage boy is faced with the shocking realities of crime, undercover worlds, and missions which force him to harness abilities turning him into the best known teenage spy in the literary world. With action packed into every page, expect thrilling twists, nefarious villains, and - of course - explosions.

The Alex Rider series is ideal for young readers aged 9 and above. It’s fantastic for getting kids who are full of energy and need constant action into reading. Though the missions are brilliant individual reads, we recommend reading the series chronologically from book 1, in order to fully understand the backstories of Rider and get to know all the recurring characters - especially the villains!
