Review by Publisher's Weekly Review

For fans of the Alex Rider series, Anthony Horowitz offers a nifty paper-over-board handbook, Alex Rider: The Gadgets, an overview of "all devices used by [the hero] on his first five missions." An opening memo from Alan Blunt expresses concern that these inventions from Scorpia could fall into the wrong hands, and with good reason-each gadget gets (at least) a spread with gatefold, showing precisely how each works, from the Cutter CD Player used to penetrate Point Blanc Academy to the Geiger Counter Games Console that the CIA gave to Alex for his trip to Cuba. This will serve as the perfect segue to Alex Rider's sixth assignment, Ark Angel, in which eco-terrorists target this titular hotel, the first luxury lodgings in outer space, as an environmental threat.
