In the first installment of the Power of Five series you are sucked into the storyline immediately and Horowitz refuses to let go until the very end. When 14-year-old Matt gets into trouble with the cops he is sent away to a new family as a part of the LEAF project. It soon becomes obvious to him that Mrs. Deverill isn't your run-of-the-mill, cookie cutting grandmother and he is suddenly alone and stranded in a place that makes jail look rather pleasant.
I am absolutely in love with this book. The writing is amazing and the suspense is unrelenting. It is a wonderful read and you will be begging for the next book (Evil Star) by the time you're done with this one.

Well, this is new. I decided to try some other books by Anthony Horowitz after being almost really bored with Alex Rider. This was quite surprising, though it was quite boring at the beginning and at sometimes when Matt is at fostering places and I thought that was boring. But when mysteries appear and Matt learns what he is, things get really exciting. Matt learns about himself and what his duty is to the world, which I really enjoy. It's a bit like Alex Rider, Matthew is also reluctant to be 'one of the five'. He just wants to live. This is an awesome story with mysterious twists.

Anthony Horowitz is a good horor writer. For example, his Night Bus is scary and Horowitz Horor is as well scary. But entering reign of Stephen King style Thrillers wasn't a good idea, Mr. Horowitz!

Raven's Gate is about Matt Freeman, who his parents are dead and is watched by a far relative. Book starts fantastic, He and his friend Kelvin go to a warehouse to steal DVDs, But a Security Guard gets injured and Matt is sent to prison. After a while, someone come and takes Matt out of prison. Soon Matt understands he is involved in a SOMETHING named Raven's Gate, He doesn't know where it is or what it is. But he knows something, If it opens demons will come and destroy the mankind...

You know, this book is not scary. I mean you'll feel the Adrenaline, but you won't be scared. Eventhought Raven's Gate fails to be scary, It is one of the best fantasy books with idea of a parallel world.

Raven's Gate is not Stephen King for kids, but its one of the best fantasy novels I've ever read.

After getting into serious trouble, Matt is given a choice: to go to jail, or to join the LEAF Project and live with Mrs. Deverill in Lesser Malling. Mrs. Deverill as well as other people in the town tend to act strangely and Matt begins to wonder why so many odd happenings occur. When Matt tries to investigate, he runs into more trouble, and the people of Lesser Malling aren't happy. More unexplained happenings occur and Matt finds out what's going on--and it isn't pretty. Will Matt be able to escape the horrors in store for him? And will anyone believe his story?
