5.0 out of 5 stars Raven's Gate, 4 April 2010
A Kid's Review
This review is from: Raven's Gate (The Power of Five) (Paperback)
I started reading this book because it was recommended by my classmates. It seemed like the sort of book a boy would read, but as I got into it I realised that it only depended on the type of books you like!

Raven's Gate is the first book in the series of Gate Keeper books by Anthony Horowitz. Its about a fourteen year old boy called Matthew Freeman (or as he likes to be called, Matt) who, without knowing until about a quarter way through, has special powers. He's arrested because he is caught stealing things from an electronics warehouse along with his friend Kelvin. Kelvin is three years older than him so Matt just goes along with whatever he does, but when Kelvin tells him what they're going to do, he doesn't feel quite right about it. And in the end, everything DOES go wrong.

Instead of staying in prison, Matt takes part in a new government project called the LEAF project. He's sent all the way to Yorkshire to be fostered. His guardian is cruel and makes him work all day on the farm. Soon he realises that something is wrong with the village and with his fosterer. Matt then learns about Raven's Gate and the Old Ones, and knows that the only person to stop Raven's Gate being opened is himself.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, even with all the deaths! That's because although the story is set for teenagers (I am eleven), the words are easy to read. I read it in five days because I couldn't put it down. My two best friends are also reading this book and they say it's brilliant, too! I look forward to buying the next book in the series, Evil Star.

I recommend this book to boys AND girls who like adventure and don't mind reading about murders. Its more for teenagers and adults but that doesn't stop children reading it!
