The third in Horowitz's Power of Five series sees the action move to Nevada where Scott and Jamie Tyler perform a mind-reading act to bored casino audiences. Only their act is real and one night they are ambushed by two mysterious men who kidnap Scott and frame Jamie for murder. Jamie escapes with the help of Alicia McGuire, a former aide to Presidential nominee Senator John Trelawney who has been searching for her son, Danny. Together they discover that children all over the country have been d ...more

This book took me a little longer to read than planned. I blame this entirely on me struggling to get properly in to the story.
Firstly, this book was the dullest of the series so far. I enjoyed "Ravens Gate" It had a sense of mystery to it, and I thought the story was intriguing. This however, had zero charm to it, the plot was slow and I could already anticipate exactly what was going to happen.
The character development is tolerable, but not in the sense of actually getting excited by the entr

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

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

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

so, the third book of "gatekeepers" , as i expect from each and every book Anthony Horowits writes, it was perfect, the story line, excitement and characters were all great, though being the first time i read from Jamie's perspective, it was a bit new and needed getting used to, but i liked it at the end.
and just at the moment about page 250 that i was going to give up having any updates from Mat and Pedro's life, once again i felt satisfied with Horowits's great story telling technique, i can
Nightrise is book 3 in the series.

This book took me a while to get into. But it got better after Jamie ends up 10,000 years back.

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

Yeah FINALLY! I finished my first book in 2018! It still amazes me how much I have forgotten about this series in 6 1/2 years. My memory really is horrible. I wasn't much into reading for the last three weeks, so I didn't enjoy the first 80% that much, but after that it got way better and exciting.

I liked this book but I kind of wish that he kept the same characters. Just kept the plot going with the two and then they find Jamie and Scott...somehow.

401 pages, it's a good book and the authors style is fantastic!

This book, I couldn't put down.

Although it's such a good book, it did get a bit confusing at times. I figured it out in the end. It was confusing that Jamie is Sapling, Scott's Flint, Pedro's Inti and so on. Jamie was dead, he comes back in another world where Sapling's dead. He replaces Sapling. This bit I understood.

Scott is imprisoned by Nightrise, and Jamie and Alicia go to look for him. Alicia will only help Jamie if he brings

Another thrilling read in this series! This time, this instalment diverges from Matt and introduces new characters and a story that's filled with adventure, deception, and magic. I liked how this story progressed alongside Matt's and delved more into the lore of the Five. It took them in a direction I didn't expect and I found myself unable to stop reading!

Jamie and Scott have tragic backstories that made them some of my favourite characters. Though they're twins, they have wildly different per

The story is building up and we find out about the evil nightrise corporation. Jamie and Scott are put in danger and an ancient tribe is their only hope.
I wasn’t sure how to feel about this book, I found it a little confusing.
I second guessed myself thinking maybe I had read out of order. But I’d triple checked and held out, it does clarify itself later on!

I personally found this a bit slower paced but I think it ends up adding more information about Raven’s Gate that’s helpful to bulk out the realms.

3 words: best story ever!
This book is more a "transition" in the series and less adventurous than others. However, events from this book will become very relevant in the rest of the series and it contains key information to understand the finale. The most important is the battle against the old ones 10.000 years ago.

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

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 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

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

This was a good book, you need it to get a long with the rest of the plot. I just didn't really like the new characters. Probably why I liked the first one the best, but Matt helped make this book better. :D

This book was amazing! I loved the plot, action, suspense, and horror. This book kept me at the edge of my seat the entire time. I had a hard time putting this book down. I'm looking forward to the fourth book in the series.
