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.

When i first started reading these books i thought they were kind of wierd and unbeleviable but then i realizied thats why i liked them so much and gave them such a high rating. they were suspenceful and always felt you on the edge of you seat wanting more. I CAN'T WAIT TO READ THE NEXT SERIE

The series moves further into the realms of conventional modern fantasy with this third volume. We are introduced to the rest of the Five and a full-blown international conspiracy. Horowitz' pacing and sense of atmosphere are as sure as ever.

This was one of my favourite series fierst time around. I am glad that Anthony Horowitz is finishing the series and re-releasing it, although I actually preferred it the first time around! Some of the updates to the storyline are not necessarily for the better.In particular, this book went from my favourite to one of the most longwinded. For years I looked for the fourth book of this series based on this particular story, but this revised version did not have the same effect.

While the second book lagged a bit this picked up the pace a fair bit. You meet the third and fourth of the five, a pair of twins, Scott and Jamie Tyler, foundlings who can read each other's mind and are currently using it as part of a stage magic show.When Scott is kidnapped, Jamie has to find him, but his path is obscured by the fact that Scott's kidnappers frame him for murder, easing the path to his capture.This series does depened a lot on coincidence and people helping but this story really comes to life when Jamie finds himself in the past, fighting the same evils that are here again. Learning a lot about himself and his role in the world.I'm looking forward to reading more in this series, it does show a lot of potential and the characters are quite interesting. It does seem to be somehow losing pace a little.

After following Matt¿s story for two books, Nightrise shifts its focus on Jamie and Scott Tyler, twin telepaths who¿re also two of the five Gatekeepers. At the start of the book, Scott is kidnapped by Nightrise, an organization who works for the Old Ones, and the rest of the book details Jamie¿s journey to rescue Scott.Right from the start, the story moves at a fast pace. The introduction doesn¿t waste too much time establishing the main characters and their backstories, and once the job¿s done, things get heated up. Throughout the book, there is no lack of action or thrills, and though the plot is somewhat lacking in depth, it still keeps readers turning the pages. Horowitz¿s writing is as brilliant and vivid as ever.However, one flaw in this book that I couldn¿t help noticing is that there¿s isn¿t much character development, save for the main character (in this case, Jamie). This flaw has been present since the first book in the series. The rest of the characters are just there for the sake of progressing the story, and this eliminates any potential for more subplots or depth. Overall, Nightrise is a thrilling read with loads of action and suspense, and is sure to entertain.
