Jack Stevenson, November 30, 2010 (view all comments by Jack Stevenson)
Necropolis, the fourth and most recent book in the impressing “The Gatekeepers” series, is a great book, although not the best book for new readers. Necropolis, starting right after the third book in the series known as Nightrise, immediately draws away from the cliffhanger ending of the last book, to tell the story of a girl, named Scarlett Adams, who had a near death experience. While this may not seem important at the beginning, it ties into the plot later on. This kind of storytelling is present throughout the series, which is entertaining to readers of the entire series, makes it hard for readers who just want to jump into the series at any point. Another storytelling device the writer borrowed from a previous book is that the book will continuously switch between the story of Scarlett, and that of the book’s main protagonist Matthew Freeman. Long time readers of the book will feel a rush of horror, action, and suspense at every turn, leading to the major cliffhanger that leaves the entire world in the balance. This book is a wonderful read for most audiences of most ages, but I would recommend new readers to start with the first to avoid spoiling the plot. In my opinion, Necropolis is a wonderful book that beautifully expands the Gatekeepers universe nicely, while adding a hint of horror at every turn.
