Book Description

2 April 2007
Nevada, USA - fourteen-year-old twins Jamie and Scott Tyler are performing a mind-reading act in a dingy theatre. But when a sinister multinational corporation, Nightrise, kidnaps Scott, Jamie is left alone - and wanted for murder. He becomes embroiled in a corrupt presidential campaign and breaks into the American prison system before being propelled ten thousand years into the past, where he encounters the other Gatekeepers and witnesses the creation of Raven's Gate - and the first fateful battle against the Old Ones.

4.0 out of 5 stars totally brilliant novel! 29 July 2007
I'm twenty years old and i found it, for a children's novel, to be very adult in parts. Some aspects are violent, but the story is well written and it kept me absorbed until the end. This series has been unjustly over looked. I can't wait for the next one in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yep- The best! 1 July 2007
By Julie
I really enjoyed this book. It is based on some new characters, which is a breath of fresh air from Matt. This book is definately not a simple plotline and takes a long time to get into, but it's worth it! It is not easy to guess how it will end and you will be hooked!

HOWEVER: You must have read the other power of five books!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars hooked again! 13 May 2007
Just as gripping as Raven's Gate and Evil Star; a treasure! The plot, as usual, is full of imaginative twists and turns. The sinister characters of the Nightrise Corporation are in delicious contrast to the courage and belief that the Chosen Ones display.

I am so pleased that Horowitz has used this book to fill us in on the history of the Chosen Ones and their battle with Evil.This gives the whole saga a lot more depth, yet still leaves enough mystery to make me want to find out more. The idea of the parallel worlds has been woven in particularly well, although it seems impossible, it so well written that it does seem possible; the sign of a truly great writer!

Horowitz writes so convincingly and with such absorbing detail that you can't help but lose yourself in the book completely. Nightrise is a must read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beware the Night 9 May 2009
Tense thriller from the master of suspense; this is the third in the Power of Five series of novels, and deals with the third and fourth of the five 'gatekeepers', teenage twins Scott and Jamie, orphans who are being exploited for their unusual gifts. The evil 'Nightrise' corporation kidnaps Scott, and his brother, along with other Gatekeepers Matt and Pedro, promptly set off on a highly dangerous mission to rescue him, in order that the nefarious 'Old Ones' may be stopped from conquering and destroying the world.

Horowitz's experiences as a TV scriptwriter stand him in good stead once more, as this is even more exciting and dramatic than its two predecessors. The narrative is tightly woven whilst being easy to read but also intelligent and fast-paced. Horowitz crams as much into the novel as he can, and as the gatekeepers hurtle towards their destiny the reader is left biting their nails in anticipation and suspense. Great stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars another good book! 20 Sep 2007
By Rachel
I bought the first book and it got me hooked into the series. This time the story focusses on jamie and scott tyler, for the first time not centering the story around matt freeman. I wont ruin the story but i definately recommend the book to readers of all ages. The storyline carries the same style of twist and turns as the previous two, gathering more gatekeepers and knowledge to the story. (also alot of the history is revealed - i.e. who made the nazca lines etc) It also features a well thought out battle and a great plot (as ever). This one is by far the best and will make you desparate to read the fourth installment in the series. Meanwhile, i can only guess what the 4th will bring due to the introduction the the 5th gatekeeper, a girl, at the end of the book! Amazing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another amazing book from Anthony Horowitz 3 April 2007
I have been waiting for the release date to post my review. I was lucky enough to aquire a copy a few weeks ago so already have read the book twice. Lol. Well, Nightrise is the tale of Jamie and Scott Tyler, TWO of the Five. They are twins.

Nightrise takes place a few weeks before the events in Evil Star, as is stated at the beginning of the book on the page THE STORY SO FAR.

Jamie and Scott are very different. Regretably, we do not see much of Scott in this book as he is kidnapped by the sinister Nightrise Corporation who are just as sinister as the synopsis of the book says. The book is set all across the world (Hong Kong, Peru and Nevada as well as many other places). It also takes you ack 10,000 years to what will become Lesser Malling to re-live the first fateful battle with the Old Ones. It is quite terrifying but written so amazingly you cannot stop.

Matt and Pedro as well as Richard do appear in Nightrise but only briefly.

We learn the names that the origional Five had and we also meet Horowitz's first EVER female heroin, Scarlet (or Scar for short). She is the last of the five. She is in about the last quarter of the book and not a lot is said aout her. Book Four, which is yet unnamed will revolve around Scar.

Nightrise is beautifully written. It is my favourite so far and I anticipate the fourth Power of Five book which, if Horowitz follows the trend, will be released this time next year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Horowitz cracker! 6 Aug 2007
When I first saw The Power of Five series I was surprised. Why should Horowitz begin another series when he was doing so well with the Alex Rider series? Here's why. The idea of magical kids with superpowers has been exploited many a time, most of the time these idea's turn out to be utter rubbish. But the thing with The Power of Five series is that is does have kids with superpowers, but it's written in a realistic way! It's almost as if you can picture a Scott and Jamie Tyler strolling down the street outside your house! The idea of kids with powers often ends up them saving the world in a heroic way, then being plastered on the front page of a newpaper under a headline like "A HERO WATCHING OVER US!". The kids in The Power of Five series have their powers for a reason and the ememy they face is of a mystical, terrible force. Nightrise is the third installment of The Power of Five series. Raven's Gate and Evil Star were both fantastic, but Nightrise is of another quality! I don't think Matt Freeman was sorely missed, yes he is a great charcater and will certainly be a major part in the remainder of the series but the fact that Horowitz repositioned the spotlight on two more of the five added something different to the book. Instead of sticking with Freeman, Horowitz let's you learn more about two more of the five, but without losing the plot of the story. This makes Nightrise exciting from the first letter to the end, I believe that it outstrips the previous two books and The Alex Rider series taboot! The only downside is that I'd have thought that there would have been more to the battle against the old ones in the past. However I'm glad it didn't drag on! If you enjoy gripping reads with a supernatural edge I'd recommend this book!

I would be honest, it could attempt to talk more about the "now" Matt and then it would would make more sense. But all in all it was extremely good

Page-turning yarn developing the divergent characters of the twins. The excitement arises out of the realism of the story telling.
