Format: Hardcover
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.

Format: Paperback
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!!!

8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Mrs. M. Widdowson on 13 May 2007
Format: Paperback
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.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Captain Pugwash on 9 May 2009
Format: Paperback
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.

Format: Paperback
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!

22 of 26 people found the following review helpful By Soul Eater...ME!! on 3 April 2007
Format: Paperback
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.

Format: Paperback
It is a risky move to switch perspective midway through a series but Horowitz gets away with it for two reasons:

1) It has to be done as per the storyline
2) He does it in a way that doesn't feel forced

Stepping away from the adventures of Matt & Pedro, we now follow the twin brothers Scott and Jamie, the latter of which is the main protagonist as he attempts to save Scott.

We learn more about the responsibility and powers of the Gatekeepers, which I feel is long overdue in the series. I found Jamie to be a more realistic and relatable protagonist than Matt and personally would have preferred to have begun with this book due to it being one of the stronger of the series (in my opinion).
