5.0 out of 5 stars Quoth the raven, 21 May 2009
This review is from: Raven's Gate (The Power of Five) (Paperback)
Anthony Horowitz wrote three books in the Eighties that were to form part of his `Gatekeepers' series; supernatural adventures featuring a sinister organization and a group of children with special powers. He never got further than three out of five, but following the success of his Alex Rider teenage spy novels, Horowitz relaunched the series under the `Power of Five' banner.

Matt Freeman is no ordinary teenager; investigating the nefarious activities of a group of what appear to be followers of the black arts, he uncovers a terrible scheme whereby The nefarious 'Old Ones' - demons from another dimension - are being aided in their attempts to re-enter our world with a view to utterly destroying it. Matt's disturbingly realistic and portentous dreams somehow hold the key to the gatekeepers' success in repelling the Old Ones' advance, and with the other chosen few he faces a race against time to prevent the cataclysmic events that are rapidly gathering momentum...

Horowitz's engaging and pacy prose is both easy to read and extremely gripping. The writer sets the scene in this novel, which is powerful and haunting; leaving the fate of the world in the balance and leaving the reader desperate to know what happens next - the mark of a top-class writer.
