Best-selling Anthony Horowitz gives his eager fans a roller coaster ride in this thrilling addition to his supernatural Power of Five sequence of 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.
Having escaped from Hong Kong, the five gatekeepers - Matt, Pedro, Scott, Jamie and Scarlett - are scattered in a hostile and dangerous world. As they struggle to re-group and plan their next move, the malevolent King of the Old Ones gathers his forces in Oblivion: a desolate landscape where the last survivors of humanity must fight the ultimate battle.
