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

The third book in the series, this is a very good read, as are the other Power of Five books. I'd recommend reading the books in the right order if you can, as the plot isn't... Read morePublished 15 months ago by Andrew Finch
