A sitting target.
That was how Alex felt.

Scorpia Rising (Alex Rider, Book Nine) by Anthony Horowitz

Synopsis From Blurb:
Alex Rider wants his life back.  But when you're the world's most successful spy, there's only one way out.  Alex's final mission will be the deadliest of all.
One bullet.  One life.

So far, amazing.  An incredible, incredible finale.  I can't wait to see how it ends!

Harry has been burdened with a dark, dangerous and seemingly impossible task: that of locating and destroying Voldemort's remaining Horcruxes.  Never has Harry felt so alone, or faced a future so full of shadows.  But Harry must somehow find within himself the strength to complete the task he has been given.  He must leave the warmth, safety and companionship of The Burrow and follow without fear or hesitation the inexorable path laid out for him...
