July 2013 Book of the Month The fifth and final book in this best-selling series, Anthony Horowitz gives his eager fans a roller coaster ride in this thrilling finale to his supernatural Power of Five stories. Time has moved on, the Five have been separated and the world is now broken possibly beyond repair. The Old Ones are in control but, if the Five can only get back together again, maybe they can take one last stand against Chaos. Having survived the utmost dangers, Matt, Scott, Jamie, Pedro and Scarlett are called by Chaos to Oblivion in the Antarctic where they must face the ultimate challenge if they are to save mankind. Gripping from start to finish despite its great length, Horowitz’s mastery of suspense is dazzlingly displayed.
