Overview


The final, thrilling conclusion to #1 NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Anthony Horowitz's masterful series -- now in paperback!

All that's left is the endgame . . .

For a moment, it looked like they had won -- the five Gatekeepers had united -- and then a deadly typhoon tore them apart, scattering them through the door and across the world.

Ten years into the future, the Gatekeepers find themselves struggling through a desolate world to find one another; to stop the evil force that waits for them; to save the world as they did ten thousand years ago. With enemies dogging their every step and the doors broken, the Gatekeepers' only hope is . . . Oblivion.

The five have arrived at the end of the world.

    I bought a copy of "Oblivion" on a business trip to Eu

    I bought a copy of "Oblivion" on a business trip to Europe because I really wanted to read this conclusion. It was a great book. Epic in scope and very satisfying end to this excellent series. This ending is nowhere near what I thought the series was going to be when I read the first book, "Raven's Gate"-and that is a strong recommendation. This is really a great series. I can't say enough good about it. Big thumbs up!

    I am a new Horowitz reader. I teach middle school English and one of my students recommended this series to me. I went upstairs to our school library and checked out Book #1 Raven's Gate. 

    IT. WAS. EXCELLENT. MIND BLOWN.

    Within a week, I was back upstairs checking out Book #5 Oblivion. 

    I truly enjoyed the entire series and Oblivion was the perfect ending for the Five. The first few chapters are kind of a bore, but if you stick with it then you will find that you have a gem on your hands. I lovedddd how he gave us each POV of the Five AND he also include the POV of some of the characters on the "Dark Side." 
    The ending is bittersweet. It was truly heartbreaking and I couldn't stop crying like a baby, but by the time you close the book, you feel at peace and understand why Horowitz decided to end it like he did. 

    Awesome job Mr. Horowitz! I am now a FAN!
    Now, on to the Alex Rider Series!

    I have read all of the gatekeepers series and this is by far the

    I have read all of the gatekeepers series and this is by far the worst and in my opinion a bad ending to this series. There is no conflict in this story after the chapter called Matt. Anthony Horowitz also kills all suspense throughout the entire novel and leaves nothing to speculation, especially the tumi. The entire conflict in this book is solved in the most unimaginative uncreative manner possible. The ending is so obvious and he bludgeons you with that fact over and over and over again. Not to mention Holly the randomly created new character who has become more central to the story than Jamie, Scott, Lohan and Richard. The ending is so dumb and lame I cannot believe it. I honestly do not understand why this is so highly rated. The only unique thing this book has to offer is his grim treatment of  his characters which was better served and more creatively used in Shan's Cirque du Freak series. Add in all the cliches and this is why it deserves a one star. I gave it two stars because if you have read the rest of the series you should finish it, but be prepared to be disappointed. Raven's Gate was hundreds of times better than this unnecessarily long piece of trash.
