Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This is the third book of the “Gatekeepers” series. It takes place a couple of weeks before the end of book two. The Nightrise corporation is looking for teens with unusual abilities. Two twins, Jamie and Scott are telepathic. During their Las Vegas show, Scott is kidnapped, and a stranger saves Jamie just in the nick of time. Jamie learns some surprising and frightening secrets about Scott’s kidnappers. To save Scott, Jamie must get arrested, and it is up to his new acquaintances to arrange it. During his captivity, Jamie is shot, and during his recovery, he finds that he has been transported ten thousand years in the past. Jamie enters this world to find it is dying. Jamie must join four other teenagers and the few remaining members of humanity to stop the Old Ones and save the world. Jamie also finds out that his trip to the past will determine his future. It may also be the key to saving Scott. Will Jamie get back to the present in time to save his brother and stop the Old Ones from opening the next gate? Reviewer: Jennifer Mitchell
VOYA - Sarah Flowers
The third book in Horowitz's Gatekeepers series focuses on another member of the Five Gatekeepers whose job is to protect the world from the Old Ones. Jamie Tyler and his brother Scott are orphans who have always been able to read minds. Now fourteen, they are working for their latest foster parents by doing a mind-reading act in a rundown Reno theater, until the day two men from the Nightrise Corporation visit the theater and try to kidnap Jamie and Scott. Complications ensue, including a plot to kill a presidential candidate, a midnight raid on a correctional facility in the Nevada desert, and Jamie finding himself suddenly transported to Peru 10,000 years in the past, where he meets the other four Gatekeepers-or at least, one version of them. It turns out that the Five exist in more than one time and place, and Jamie is called upon to help the others defeat the Old Ones in this earlier time before returning to the twenty-first century to find Scott and ultimately fight the Old Ones again. In yet another exciting adventure story, readers learn a lot more about the Five and the Old Ones, getting some inkling of where the story might be going in future installments. Horowitz picks up the pace in this book, and ratchets up the tension in one more winner.
KLIATT - Paula Rohrlick
Only the Gatekeepers—five brave teenagers—can prevent the return of the evil Old Ones who seek to destroy humanity. Fourteen-year-old Native American twins Jamie and Scott are Gatekeepers, though at first they don't know it; all they know is that they have psychic powers and can read and even control minds. A sinister international corporation called Nightrise, controlled by the Old Ones, learns of the twins' telepathy act on a Reno, Nevada stage and tries to kidnap them, but Jamie manages to escape with the help of a woman who is seeking her own kidnapped son. In order to rescue his twin, Jamie must gain entry to the juvenile correctional facility in the desert where Scott is being held. But there is even more at stake, Jamie learns, as in a dream world he meets the other Gatekeepers and prepares to do battle with them against the Old Ones. Oh, and he has to prevent the assassination of a presidential candidate in our world, too. There's no lack of plot or action in this breathless fantasy thriller, with more in the series yet to come. It's as exciting and over-the-top as Horowitz's Alex Rider spy series, with an extra helping of horror. Fans will be eager to meet the new Gatekeepers and gallop along on their adventures.
School Library Journal

Gr 5-8 -Twins Jamie and Scott have psychic powers and Nightrise, a multinational corporation which has been kidnapping children with special abilities, wants them. Scott is captured but Jamie escapes and, in trying to rescue Scott, travels back in time where he learns that he and Scott are two of five child gatekeepers who are deterring "the Old Ones" from destroying mankind. The five defeat the old ones in a violent battle in the past, but Jamie learns that the threat is starting again in his time and Nightrise and its preferred presidential candidate are part of the threat. They plan to assassinate their candidate's opponent who is favored to win the election. Jamie must try to stop them. Anthony Horowitz has written a suspenseful story (Scholastic, 2007), and British actor Simon Prebble's narration helps keep listeners riveted. A few misplaced emphases in narration are a minor flaw, but generally the production is excellent with clear sound, well-paced reading, and appropriate voices for the characters. While listeners new to the series will have no trouble following the story, they will probably request the previous books/audiobooks in the series and eagerly await the next title.-Louise L. Sherman, formerly Anna C. Scott School, Leonia, NJ

Kirkus Reviews
In this third of the Gatekeepers series, Horowitz ups the ante considerably when he brings the third and fourth of "The Five" into the story. Identical twins Scott and Jamie, abandoned in a cave sacred to the Washoe Indians, have bounced from foster home to institution and are headed for much, much worse. A preemptive strike by the evil Nightrise Corporation makes Scott a captive and leaves Jamie, the less effective of the mind-reading twins, to make the rescue. Time travel, visits to a dream universe and mind control add a fascinating occult element to this thriller. Horowitz truly knows his way around a plot; he keeps the tension at a nail-biting level throughout and makes the apocalyptic situation clear without getting bogged down in description of the two previous books. Characters exist to drive this plot-with the twins and a couple of others well-developed and the rest edging into stereotype. The smashing climax is totally satisfying while anticipating the world-saving to come. Stock up-it should fly off the shelves! (Fiction. YA)

    A reviewer

    I loved this book. It started out kind of slow, and it was hard to get interested in a new character, but it was still a really good book. I'm a huge Anthony Horowitz fan, he did an amazing job painting a vivid picture of the characters and their surroundings. I recommend this series to all long time sci-fi fans and anyone looking to get into sci-fi for the first time.

    Cool Book!!!

    When I first picked up Nightrise, I doubted whether or not this book was as good as the rest of the series called The Power of Five, but after a few pages of the story I knew that this was building up to be a great novel. Just like Raven's Gate and Evil Star, Nightrise showed promise as Anthony Horowitz's vocabulary vividly painted picture after picture all throughout the story. As Scott and Jamie are introduced as the third and fourth of the magical Gatekeepers, the group of individuals made up of four boys and a girl who saved the world from the Old Ones ten thousand years ago and have been reincarnated. So far Matt, who was introduced in Raven's Gate, and Pedro, who was introduced in Evil Star, know of their destiny to destroy the Old Ones once again, but Scott and Jamie are only now starting to figure out how they changed the course of history ten thousand years ago and how they are about to do it again, for better or worse. As they go on the path to understanding, they face the Nightrise Corporation, a company with unlimited resources that secretly serves the banished Old Ones and tries to bring them back into power. Scott and Jamie are perfectly described as the modern day "David" against the "Goliath" that is formed by the seemingly omnipotent Nightrise Corporation. The further I advanced in this book the more I was enticed by the lucid descriptions and the alluring story that the author puts together as the fate of the world changes with every turn of the novel.
    I believe that this book can be entertaining for almost any reader that is looking for a fantastical book with a complex story that keeps spinning you around like a roller coaster that twists and turns. Nightrise is also very recommendable for people that enjoy novels of the science fiction genre. This series in general revolves around the subject of special powers and fantastical figures that would appeal to those types of readers. Overall, Nightrise is a wonderful read that can appeal to many readers of many ages, and Anthony Horowitz formed a book that is worthy of the series of The Power of Five. This is an accomplishment that is at least equal to anything he has ever written. I can easily say that Nightrise, along with Raven's Gate and Evil Star are some of the best books I have ever read. This book is exceptional and in my opinion all aspects of it should be appreciated and admired.

    Nightrise (The Gatekeepers series) book 3

    Nightrise, the third book in the series of "The Gatekeepers" by Anthony Horowitz is an edge of the seat piece of writing full of non-stop thrills and action. It starts up in Reno where Scott and Jamie, two telepathical twins, work for a circus. It all comes down to one night when 2 Nightrise men arrive at their show. Scott and Jamie do their telepathical show, they are on their way home when the 2 Nightrise men strike, they manage to take Scott but Jamie gets saved on the blink of an eye. Now the Nightrise Corporation is doing all kinds of tests on Scott. Jamie gets sent back 10,000 years, there he will find out who both of them really are and how important they are to the world. Five of them should meet quickly and stop the Old Ones before they take over. Would Jamie be able to rescue Scott? Would the 5 of them ever meet and stop the Old Ones once and for all? It's a great book for those readers who like non-stop action, thrills and a bit of fantasy.

    PS: It'll all make more sense if you read book 1 (Raven's Gate) and book 2 (Evil Star)

    AMAZING AND SUSPENSFUL

    this book was amazing! i was a kid who hated reading and thanks to this book, and to evil star, it had me sucked in! great suspense, and the plot/transition from evil star to nightrise was brilliant! i would reccomend this book to anyone looking for a good suspense. but be warned, when you buy this book, buy necropolis as well. i just finished nightrise a few minutes ago and i now am left without the next book, and wondering what happens next. im going to get Necropolis tomorrow!!

    Hanging at every chapter

    Nightrise contains many adventures with each mysterious character and makes a perfect science-fiction book. It may have you hanging at each chapter's end with its deep suspension and creative plot. At some points you may be entirely engrossed in the book as all the mystical foreshadowing starts to unfold. I have been part of this marvelous adventure and I hope someday you will be too.
