I started readin' these books when I was in seventh grade and I immediately fell in love with the series! I imagine myself in Alex's place and doin' what he does. So much action, adventure, mystery, and deception all in the siries! I am now currently readin' Ark Angel and, so far, the book is awesome! Keep up the good work Anthony!
