Publisher Comments:

The stakes get higher in #1 NYT bestselling author Anthony Horowitz's latest masterpiece.

As the fourth novel in the spellbinding Gatekeepers series begins, the world is under the greatest threat it's ever known. The evil corporation Nightrise has amassed an immense amount of power . . . and the devastating force of the Old Ones is about to be unleashed around the globe. To stop this from happening, Matt and three of the Gatekeepers head to Hong Kong--not just the modern city of skyscrapers and wealth, but the secretive underworld beneath. In Hong Kong they will meet the final Gatekeeper, a girl named Scarlet, whose fate is inextricably joined to their own....

About the Author

Anthony Horowitz is the internationally bestselling author of the Alex Rider series which is now published in more than twenty countries with sales in the millions. He has also won several awards, including the Red House Book Award for Skeleton Key – voted for entirely by children.

Anthony knew he wanted to be a writer from the age of eight and after graduating from the University of York he was published for the first time when he was just 23. As well as writing books, he has created many successful television dramas including the BAFTA award-winning Foyle's War, Midsomer Murders and Poirot.

He is currently working on a major supernatural series, The Power of Five, which begins with Raven's Gate. It was inspired by a simple thought. “Would it be possible to write something like Lord of the Rings - but to set it here, now, in the real world?” Anthony explains. “Isn't it more exciting to imagine these great battles with all their magic and mystery happening in the very high street where you live, just out of the corner of your eye?”

Anthony Horowitz lives in North London with his wife and two sons. He writes in a small studio and is almost always accompanied by his trusty writing companion, a chocolate Labrador named Lucky Dog.

MrsChocolateMalfoy, August 13, 2013 (view all comments by MrsChocolateMalfoy)
This book, despite what the publisher says, is not made for children. Children would read the book and not get much out of it. A young adult, or even older audience would be able to see what beauty Horowitz has created with the fourth instalment of the Power of Five/Gatekeepers series. This book is from the perspective of an adopted girl who was born in Asia and brought to England and from Matt. To avoid spoilers, I can't say very much, but god, the cliffhanger at the end? If you haven't read the book yet, be glad that the fifth and final book has already come out or you'd be driving yourself mad trying to know what happens. As usual, a beautiful piece of work by Anthony Horowitz.
