A new paperback issue of the first book in the bestselling fantasy series The Power of Five by Anthony Horowitz.
A sinister and incredibly atmospheric story of the supernatural; first of five in the Power of Five series. Matt has always known he has unusual powers. Raised in foster care, he is sent to Yorkshire on a rehabilitation programme, only to find himself in the midst of sinister goings-on. Matt investigates and uncovers a terrible secret - eight guardians are protecting the world from the evil ones, beings banished long ago by five children. But devil worshippers want to let the evil ones back in. As the story reaches its climax, it looks like Matt has succeeded in stopping them...or has he?
In addition to our Lovereading expert opinion for Raven's Gate a small number of our readers were lucky enough to be invited to review this title. Here's a taster....'Raven’s Gate is the best novel I have read for a while. Antony Horowitz takes you on an adventurous journey, transporting you to another world of darkness and mystery.'.
