Praise
"Many of the 20 chapters end in cliffhangers, wile the spectacular climax and surprising conclusion provide both a satisfying ending and a good set-up for the next in the series. Go. Visit. Have an exhilarating read."
"[T]he real-world setting gives this an extra frisson of horror, and Horowitz's vivid descriptions are not for the fainthearted. It's what's inside all the thrills, however, that makes the book so strong: characters that readers will care about and root for."
"The first in The Gatekeepers series, this engrossing (and gory) fantasy will win fans from the get-go."
From the Publisher
First Line Matt Freeman knew he was making a mistake.
Annotation After a badly bungled burglary, 14-year-old Matt Freeman is given one last chance in the form of foster care with Jayne Dereville, a sinister old woman with a sharp tongue. As soon as he arrives at her deserted farm, Matt begins to experience bizarre events, from terrifying hallucinations to cryptic warnings from townspeople. Unbeknownst to him, Matt is a key player in a nefarious plot centering on the foreboding Raven's Gate, a place of unimaginable wickedness. Matt sets out to free himself from the farm, but only finds himself becoming more deeply involved with every attempt at escape, clueless about his own chilling destiny. The first book in the Gatekeepers series, by the author of the bestselling Alex Rider series.
Editors Note Sent to live in a foster home in a remote Yorkshire village, Matt, a troubled fourteen-year-old English boy, uncovers an evil plot involving witchcraft and the site of an ancient stone circle.
