Storm breaker is an action-adventure novel following a boy whose uncle; Ian Rider and only living relative, was killed by a contract killer for being a SPY. So now Alex has to choose between either going bankrupt or forcibly joining the family business and becoming … A Spy himself!
Alex was a typical 14-year-old boy. Liked by his friends, good at sports, and loved going fishing with his uncle and had a black belt in karate which he had been studying since the age of 6. Alex was a master at chess, a game taught to him, as well as many things by his Uncle Ian. We’re never really told what happened to Alex’s parents but the assumption is that they’re dead and it’s up to uncle Ian to raise young Alex. Alex was happy with his life until the doorbell rang at 3am one horrible foggy morning. Alex was told that his uncle died because he wasn’t wearing a seat belt during the accident, but Alex knew his uncle never drove anywhere without wearing a seatbelt. Something was fishy and Alex was going to figure it out. After investigating his Uncle’s wrecked car, Alex found bullet holes in the windshield. Uncle Ian had been shot, but by who? Alex was on the right path but now he was in danger of being trapped in the car that was about to be destroyed. He was getting too close to knowing things he might not have been ready for, unless he was given help. Alex received a phone call asking him to come to the bank to discuss some paper’s belonging to Ian pertaining to Alex. Alex arrived at the bank to find out the “BANK” was really a secret headquarters for the international spy organization know as MI6. Alex was given a choice. Either he would go bankrupt or he would have to become a SPY like his uncle IAN?
Everything Alex thought he knew about his uncle was wrong and everything about Alex’s life was about to change. Alex finds himself infiltrating Sayle Enterprises to confirm MI6’s suspicions that the STORM BREAKER computers were actually deadly bio weapons about to unleash a mutated smallpox virus into the world. Before Alex can become a super spy he has to be trained by the best MI6 has to offer. Is Alex up to the task? 🙂
