City of Death,
This review is from: The Power of Five: Necropolis (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.
