The cover of Scorpia is simple and to the point. The cover is dark blue adorned with a silver scorpion, matching the orginization which I have been introduced to recently. They call themselves SCORPIA, a name that tells us their four main fields of activity. Sabotage, CORruPtion, Intelligence, and Assasination are their specialties. The word Scorpia is also plastered in large white letters on the cover, telling us the name of both the book and the terrorist orginization. Anthony Horowitz's name is below in yellow, below that a line telling us he is the author of the New York Times bestseller "Eagle Strike". There is a small line at the top with the name of the main character, Alex Rider, with a sillouete of a boy in crosshares, telling us he must be invloved in something dangerous and exciting.
