Description

Boy-genius Cadel Piggot has a new name (Cadel Greenaius), a new family, anda new life. No more illegal hacking, no more false identities, and most of all, no more Prosper English. But when his best friend Sonja is attacked, it's up to him to figure out who was behind it. Before he knows it, Cadel is crossing oceans and continents, barrelling back into the depths of the criminal activity he thought he'dleft behind, and coming face to face with Prosper English once again. Can Cadel track down Prosper before it's too late? And what rules will he have to break in the process?

Praise For The Genius Wars

* "Cyber-espionage takes both front seats in this conclusion to the outstanding Genius series....the climax is taut, absorbing and tantalizingly ambiguous."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Full-throttled plot....will command the attention of even non-techie readers until Jinks's final plot twists wind to a close."--Horn Book

"Jinks is an entertaining writer. . . . Her imaginative use of technology . . . creates some truly tense moments, and Cadel is Everyman enough for readers to root for in the thick of things. Fans of the trilogy will delight in this concluding volume, and it will also appeal to gadget-crazy boys—and girls—who enjoyed Alex Rider’s adventures."—Booklist
