I look forward to finding out what happens next. I am a bit confused. Yassen doesn't know John was really MI6? Or John really was a Scorpia agent? Or everyone is telling their version of the truth and John was playing everyone? I really like Yassen and Alex stories, so thanks for writing such a good one!

Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow. Totally mind blowing. And so tantalising. It might have really happened... Oh that was so brillant. I look forward to reading other stories by you. And you guessed about Yassen and John before Snakehead? That's wonderful. It's one of my slight pet peeves. That after new books come out people usually don't upgrade their fics to either say 'this is now totally AU' or just change things that need to be changed to make for cannon background. Perhaps you could write a fic where Yassen is not dead after Snakehead? I'd love to read something like that. (it is a not-so-secret wish of mine that he'd turn up again. I mean, if Alex can survive a shot to the heart from a Scorpia assassin then surely he could be resurrected.) Thanks so much for a brillant fic.

wow. Now that is a brilliant Yassen returns story. Sweet, all books compliant, to the point and realistic. Would that all Alex Rider writers do this story as well as you. (Except that then I wouldn't be so happy about this one) Thanks for writing and sharing this.

Author's Response: *blushes madly* Thanks for this lovely comment!

Rated: Adults only
Summary: Yassen Gregorovich had beautiful hands – long, elegant and strong at the same time. They were also among the most terrifying things Alex had ever seen.

Excellent story. I hope I can read more in this verse. It is hot and compelling and realistic and everything I look for in a Yassen/Alex fic. Thanks.
