Product Description

Five teenagers. Five outcasts, standing against a hideous evil capable of tearing the universe apart. Troubled orphan Matt has no idea that he is one of them… until he finds himself stranded in Yorkshire, threatened by black magic, fighting to prevent the opening of a gate which will destroy his whole world. To help him, he must find four other children blessed – or cursed – with uncanny gifts. When the five meet, they will fight the forces of evil together. But will they have the strength to drive the darkness back? Sweeping from rural Britain to the mystical peaks of Peru, and from Hong Kong to the sun-blanched Nevada desert, Anthony Horowitz’s bestselling series is horror fantasy at its darkest and most epic.

Anthony Horowitz started writing because he wanted to be like Tintin. He has now travelled to all the places that Tintin has been – apart from the moon!

His Alex Rider series is one of the most popular children’s book series ever, and the first Alex Rider book, Stormbreaker, became a major Hollywood film. In 2003, Anthony won the Red House Children’s Book Award (voted for by children) for Skeleton Key.

He is also the author of the highly acclaimed Diamond Brothers detective stories, as well as the bestselling The Power of Five books, which were inspired by a simple thought. “Isn’t it more exciting to imagine these great battles with all their magic and mystery happening in the very high street where you live, just out of the corner of your eye?”

Anthony lives in central London with his wife Jill Green, a TV producer, and their sons Nicholas and Cassian. His whole family gets involved in his writing. Jill has produced several of Anthony’s scripts, including the drama serial Foyle’s War, which won the Lew Grade Audience Award in 2003. His son Cassian is already a seasoned actor, having appeared in three of his shows, and Nicholas, his oldest son, has helped Anthony to research the Alex Rider books by trying his hand at everything from scuba-diving to snowboarding and surfing!

In 2013, Anthony was awarded an OBE for services to literature..

    This series is great. It’s like my favourite series. I have read these atleasta hundred times. I think Matt is the bravest of all the five but my favourite is Jamie. I think this series is PERFECT. I hope they turn them into a movie.
