I'm a stickler for series. I love Darren Shan and the like and when I first opened Raven's Gate I was immediately drawn in, it was a good book. Evil Star was alright and with this: book three in the Gatekeepers saga dubbed Nightrise I wasn't too immersed. It's a young adult's fiction novel of two orphans abandoned in a tunnel near a Washoe native American reservation. Scott, the apparent protector of the two, and Jamie Tyler, the doubting protagonist, performing in a rundown play house in Reno, ...more

So, this is the third book of one of my favorite series, The Gatekeepers!. When I finished reading Evil Star, I was a bit dissapointed, not with the story, but with some mistakes I found there. I started to think that maybe this book had an extraordinary plot like the others, but maybe it would contain some errors that would make me start disliking it. But fortunately, i'm glad to say that it didn't. This was super amazing!!! I was starting to compare this with Necropolis which is the most incre ...more

Anthony Horowitz's THE GATEKEEPERS series continues with NIGHTRISE. The Old Ones are still a threat to the safety of the world, and the five young gatekeepers are the only ones equipped to help.

Previously, Matt and Pedro were in Peru attempting to close the second gate. Their attempt failed and Matt was seriously injured. The adventure continues in a new location - Reno, Nevada. A small, rundown theater is hosting a performance ca

I've always enjoyed Anthony Horowitz's books, and this is no exception.
The power of five series I find to be, in my opinion, far greater than the Alex Rider series.
The 1st power of five books, Raven's Gate and Evil Star were brilliant, and this one is no exception.
Nightrise I found, starts off fairly slow, as it's the third installment I expected there to be more use of the five's 'powers', as they are no longer a mystery to the reader, but like before, the powers are rarely used.
However, the s

I've enjoyed this whole series -- but then, I generally enjoy Anthony Horowitz's work. While the mythologies present may be familiar to students of world religions and apocalyptic literature (both religious and contemporary fiction), like Horowitz's other work, the characters are interesting and well-written. This would also be a fine series read for a family with middlers and early teens, but probably a little too scary for younger children (more horror elements than the Alex Rider series). Som ...more

4 falcon punches out of 5.

اسم کتاب توی ترجمه طلوع تاریکی انتخاب شده. شاید از یه لحاظی بشه گفت انتخاب درستی بوده. داستان در مورد دو نگهبان دیگه ی دوازه به اسم های جیمی و اسکات تایلره که حالا با برگشت پیشینیان در خطرن. اونا ردگیری شدن و متیو و پدرو از اونا هیچ اطلاعی ندارن. پس اونا باید به تنهایی از خودشون مراقبت کنن تا مت و پدرو و نکسوس خودشون رو وارد ماجرا کنن. اما برای این دو برادر ماجراها به کندی می گذره. قسمت جالب کتاب سفر به گذشته ی جیمی بود.

I have never read any Anthony Horowitz books before but now I am hooked. Even though this is the third in 'The Power of 5' series, I didn't feel confused about what was happening or worried that I hadn't read the previous books. Though I will definitely be checking them out the moment I get a chance.

Jamie and Scott are telepathic twins. Ever since they were found, they have been able to read other people's minds, though they refuse to use this power except with each other. But when Scott is kidn

This is the third book in the Power of Five series. I read the other two a while ago so had forgotten a fair bit, so this was almost a new story for me.
Written for teens this is about five kids who all have to come together to save the world from the return of The Old Ones. Two of them have found each other in the previous two books and this one is about the 3rd and 4th.
It is a good story although there is a strange jump in the middle where one of the characters wakes up in a completely differen

This is the third book in the gatekeepers series and I have to say my favorite thus far. Jamie and Scott are twins with the ability to read minds and make people do or see things. They try not to use their ability on other people because they have to delve into their minds and therefore only read each others minds. But when the Nightrise corporation, who are working to bring the Old Ones back, try to kidnap the boys, Jamie escapes. In his quest to find his brother he discovers he and his brother ...more

Wow. I am loving this series! So far I have listened to each book on audiobook.
Anthony Horowitz is a great writer, and really know how to keep you intrigued with the story. This series is far too under-hyped, and I think more people should read it!

Bk 3 in the Gatekeepers series, this book introduces 2 new characters--14 y.o. psychic twins Jamie and Scott. They get caught up in a chase to stay alive after they escape the sleazy mindreading act they were forced to perform in--thugs from the evil Nightrise Corporation kidnap Scott, and Jamie is determined to find him, even if it means going to jail for a crime he didn't commit. Nonstop action. Eventually they meet up with Matt from books 1 and 2, as they travel to an alternate world in the m ...more

Nightrise by Anthony Horowitz is an amazing book. It's very adventurous and exciting to read. This series is about the Gatekeepers. In this book, we move away from the first two gatekeepers to the other two, which happen to be twins. These twins are originally starred in a magic show, even though they both have powers between them.

Scott and Jamie Tyler are brothers that are starring in a magic show. They realise that the same 2 men come twice, and these men visit them after the show. They have t

The rewritten version of what was once the book The Silver Citadel.

Amidst the upcoming election for US President (between John Trelawny and Nightrise Corperation sympathizer Charles Baker), Jamie and his twin Scott are attacked, and Scott is kidnapped, while Jamie manages to escape, only to find himself accused of the murder of his "aunt" and "uncle" who have kept them working in a The Reno Playhouse's act The Circus of the Mind.

I always find it interesting to see what foreign authors think of the United States. We’ve done a lot of bad things in our past, and arguably in our present, too, so it’s interesting how these things look from an outside perspective. I’d be pleased to see that Anthony Horowitz’s interpretation of the United States is almost spot on – if the interpretation wasn’t dark to the max. Nightrise is a pre-dystopian story, from that point in society where the dark empire is just being set up and can, pot ...more

The gate has been opened and their only hope to stop this evil power is to make all five gatekeepers meet. If you like realistic fiction this is the book for you. The genre of this book is realistic fiction and fantasy. I think that this book is thrilling and makes you want to keep on reading.

The setting of this book is in Reno, Nevada and in Los Angeles,California. The setting relates to the book because Jamie is used to life in Nevada and when the women helps him he has to

I can't say "I couldn't let go of this book, it was so awesome!". It took me a very long time to finish this novel since I stopped in the middle several times. I couldn't help but be bored about how Anthony Horowitz dragged on descriptions. I wanted more action, but there was way too much explaining going on and I got so confused at the part where Jamie goes to the past. I am in the middle of this series so I will have to read the 4th book, but I am not expecting amazing material. Scott and Jami ...more

Nightrise Book Review (The Gatekeepers Book #3)

by Anthony Horowitz

I’d give this one 3.5 stars out of 5.

Anthony Horowitz is one of my favorite modern writers. His greatest strength, or, what resonates with me most, is when he is writing something slightly creepy, mysterious, and ominous. He is VERY good at that, and I can't get enough of it. That is what originally drew me into this series. In book one, Raven's Gate, he really created a haunting ambiance to surround his wonderfully creepy-cult-ch

Scott and Jamie are twins with a telepathic link. They perform in a private circus run by their foster parent, at least until he sells both of them to the Nightrise corporation. Although Scott gets caught, Jamie gets away, rescued by a Alicia, a woman who attended their last show. Alicia's son Danny had been kidnapped months before, and she offers to help Jamie any way she can. They trace Scott to a juvenile detention center owned by Nightrise, but when Jamie breaks in Scott is already gone. Jam ...more

I received this book as a gift from a friend and because it was listed as the third in a series, I was hesitant to read it. However, last night I got really bored and decided to dive into it. Well, the only thing I can say is I did not dive out of it until I finished it at 2 am this morning. I could not put it down. The age on the book states that it is for grades 5-8 but let me tell you it is not written in a child's language. I do not mean to say that it is full of bad language but that the st ...more

This was actually a pleasant surprise. I enjoyed the "Alex Rider" series by Horowitz, but got a little tired of each book running along the same theme--Alex going on a "spy" assignment, doing his job, getting into trouble, and by some fantastic, unrealistic means, managing to save himself at the last moment. So to be honest I haven't had high expectations for this series! I did like the premise of the first book but thought the others would be like the Alex Rider books, becoming repetitive plotl ...more

I didn't like Nightrise at all. It was very boring and I got lost many times. The book was very strange and was just kind of a run on book. There needs to be more background information and everything has to make sense. I thought it was cool that Scott and Jamie could read each others minds. The start of the story was okay but it just got worse from that. The second book was by far the best with all the action with Pedro and Matt. This one was just bad. Scott was taken away and Jamie was on the ...more

The book I was reading is called Nightrise by Anthony Horowitz. It is book number three from the series The Gatekeepers. The book was really good in my opinion. When I was sick and absent for a few days, all I did was lay down and read. It felt as if my eyes were glued to the book. I kept telling myself,” OK only five more pages Daniel” and then five pages turned out to be fifteen. I am the type of person that doesn’t really enjoy reading but this book surprised me.

Night rise by Anthony Horowitz is a stunning science fiction book. This is the third book in the Gatekeeper series. This book takes place mainly in a large desert. The main characters are Scott and Jamie. Scott and Jamie have had the power to read each othes minds since the day they were born. They can also read other people's minds. This power may seem like a blessing to you, but it can drive a person insane. Jamie does not enjoy having this power. He will be forced to use it to survive and fin ...more
