Product Description

Review

"* "There aren't many writers who in one book can bridge the gap between Enid Blyton, Ed McBain and JRR Tolkein, but it's the kind of challenge that the energetic Horowitz relishes." The Daily Telegraph * "Horowitz is marvellous at getting inside the minds of disenfranchised marginalised teenage boys." The Times"

Book Description

The eagerly-awaited fourth book in this bestselling series. Hong Kong has been taken over by the Old Ones and has become Necropolis, city of the dead. Once in, there is no way out…

Wow, I LOVE this book. I bought it and read it in just one day - I couldn't put it down. It also looks as good as it is - a fantastic cover for a fantastic book. Scar is by far my favourite of the five, she is so brave and her power is the most exciting. My bookcase is now so full of Anthony Horowitz books, but I dont ever want him to stop writing! This book is definitely one of his best, and no doubt his next ones will be even better! - is that possible?!

Format: Hardcover
Anthony Horowitz's penultimate 'Power of Five' novel leaps out of the starting gate and canters to the finish with barely a pause. After the previous book's climactic showdown between Guardian Matt Freeman and puppet of the evil 'Old Ones', chairman of the insidious Nightrise Corporation, Horowitz introduces the final member of the five Guardians: Priveleged public schoolgirl Scarlett. Chosen to protect the Earth from the Old Ones' nefarious schemes, Scarlett gradually becomes aware of who she really is, but not before she's left a trail of death and destruction in her wake.

This story could feasibly be read and enjoyed as astand-alone novel, however I would recommend reading the other three preceding books first. Horowitz's uncomplicated but engaging style makes this a great read, and comes highly recommended for anyone from 8-80.

The Power of Five series enthralled my 14 year old daughter. She doesn't usually enjoy reading but on this series begged me to download the books to my Kindle rather than waiting for the postman.

Safe buy.

Anthony Horowitz may be my favourite author but This book is better still! I only finished this novel In a couple of days because it was sooo gripping with suspense, tension and mystery. The fifth gatekeeper, Scarlett, lives usually in London, however one day she gets a mysterious phone call from her dad taking her to Hong Kong- ruled by the old ones but somehow she gets rescued- only to be found and to be rescued and then found...(the story Isn't just rescues and found)by Bob, 10

Horowitz has done a wonderful job at gathering the 5 and and racing them all across the world. Necropolis had such a fantastic build, but I just hope that that wasn't the end. Since it was released in 2008, and now it's near mid-year 2012, I'm hoping to see a follow-up soon! If it seriously ended the way Necropolis ended, um...I'd be very disapointed!

I was so excited to read the latest Power of Five by Anthony Horowitz and got a copy as soon I could. I was not disappointed! It's the darkest, scariest, most page-turning thriller yet in this series - and leaves us on a real cliffhanger. I can't wait for the final book! I love the Alex Rider books too and am so glad Anthony Horowitz has two brilliant series to keep me going. Go Anthony, bring on the next!

I love this book but it is annoying how the Five get split up at the end. I chose this rating because I love Horowitz books and this series is my fave and also I chose it because of Scarletts power is so awesome!!
