VIGIL, on the other hand feel that it is too dangerous for people to re-write history so they try to stop them. My favourite character in this book is Sophie. She meets Jack and Angus when they end up in the past. She's the exact brave, determined, butt-kicking girl any female reader would admire. She's similar to Angus.
He too is adventurous, and brave. Jack is slightly more cautious and scared but he can shine in certain situations. Even though, I personally feel that it is just slightly more aimed at boys, if you're a girl who likes the sound of it go ahead! I love the Alex Rider novels, even though stereotypically it looks like it's for boys, so it's all about finding the books for you. Oct 05, Zoe rated it really liked it. In my opinion, this is probably my favourite one out of them all!
They are thrown back to the s in France and are in the middle of a crucial point of the war. Could this change history forever? I think the most powerful part of this book that made me stick with it all the way through is the characters. Jack is the kind of hero you expect in an action book - fearless, strong and intelligent.
On the other hand, Angus lacks Jack's brains but is also funny and loyal. They made the perfect team throughout the books. I liked all the other characters too - old and new.
I think my favourite is Sophie, particularly at the end. It is an 'awww! I still found this book slightly complicated, like I did with the others. It is probably just me!

For example; the war weaponry terms, various names and specific things in the book which I didn't understand. This did not stop me from enjoying the story, and I could still see what was happening. You do not have to read the first two to be able to read this one, but I do recommend reading them also!
I think this book will be best for boys around - and girls too!
