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.

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!!!

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.

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.

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!

The Anthony Horowitz series are absolutely fantastic, and provided me with a fantastical read. No fantasy, and magical crap - no, the Anthony Horowitz books are based on reality. Now I'm only 11,and already i can tell you that I really - and I mean really - enjoyed these books, so much so that they're the best books I have ever read.
I've only read Stormbreaker and Point Blanc in the Alex Rider series, and so far i have read all three Power of Five books - Raven's Gate, Evil Star and Nightrise. Nightrise is by far the best, as it removes the limelight from Matt Freeman and dumps it, consequently, on Scott & Jamie Tyler. Don't you think this is a good thing, after the previous books? It's about time for a change. I'm not saying they're even anywhere near bad, though.

I just love the storylines, because - unlike, for instance,the Harry Potter series (is it coincidence or does Harry Potter keep cropping up whilst I'm talking about Nightrise??!!) - all of them are believable, and they could be happening in your town or village - just in the corner of your eye. The Anthony Horowitx books absolutely blitz any of the Harry Potter books.
Anthony Horowitz is an utter genius, and that's basically all there is to it.

My advice? Buy it. You won't be disappointed.
And that is a guarantee.
