Product Description
Product Details

Gr 7 Up-Scarlet thinks the she is just a normal 15-year-old girl, until the day she steps through a door and finds herself in another country. There, in the hands of a sadistic monk in service to an ancient evil, she learns that she is one of five Gatekeepers who hold the fate of the world in their hands. From that point on, Scarlet's life is fraught with danger as she journeys to Hong Kong and becomes surrounded by sinister strangers and nothing is as it seems. The other Gatekeepers, now aware of Scarlet's existence, must travel to meet her. In doing so, they face monumental peril at the hands of the Old Ones and the sinister Nightrise Corporation who will stop at nothing to keep the Gatekeepers from joining forces to save the world. In this installment (Scholastic, 2009) of Anthony Horowitz's series, the Gatekeepers are brought together, and an explosive cliffhanger ending will leave fans anxious for the final volume. Horowitz does an excellent job of weaving backstory from the first three books into the text, and Simon Prebble brings the story to life with his expert inflection and cadence. A suspenseful tale sure to keep listeners on the edges of their seats.-Misti Tidman, Boyd County Public Library, Ashland, KY Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

"* "There aren't many writers who in one book can bridge the gap between Enid Blyton, Ed McBain and JRR Tolkein, but it's the kind of challenge that the energetic Horowitz relishes." The Daily Telegraph * "Horowitz is marvellous at getting inside the minds of disenfranchised marginalised teenage boys." The Times"
