    I really liked this book because now they actually have a whole new problem in their hands. I liked how Horowitz made it so that there were actually two twins and a lot of the book was also in their perspectives (mostly the smaller twin, Jamie). What happens is that the two twins get kidnapped by a company called Nightrise, and they are supporting the old ones (main enemies). So that's a whole organization against the five. The smaller twin, Jamie manages to escape but the older one Scott gets caught and the book is mainly about Jamie trying to get Scott. Their telepathic power also stops working for a long time because of the distance between the two. I thought it was an amazing great book and I just couldn't put it down.

    If you haven't read this book, you really should. What happens now is that the 5th gatekeeper, a girl named Scarlett Adams has finally been discovered by Matt the other gatekeepers. What happened was she went through one of the magical doors, and goes missing because she traveled from England to Ukraine. Matt knows that she is a gatekeeper because only the gatekeepers can travel through the doors. They then try to get to her but she also keeps moving making it very hard for them. They also are very outnumbered because of Nightrise. They go to Hong Kong but the city is very taken over by the old ones and the people are getting poisoned, making it even more dangerous for them. I thought it was one of my favorite books of my series and I was very excited to read the next one.

    This was my favorite book of the series. Mainly because it had a ton of action and it was very unpredictable. Anthony Horowitz put a ton of different perspectives into this book, and adds tons of new characters. What happened was at the end of Necropolis, the 5 got all separated and blown to different places by a Signal 10 typhoon. It also created a leap in time that was 10 years in the future. None of them aged, but the people all around them did age. Now they are very desperate to find each other since humanity has destroyed themselves and when the old ones come, the whole world will end. And only they can stop what is happening. I actually read it slowly on purpose just so I could enjoy it. I thought that this book was the best book in the series, and luckily, it was the longest.

    I thought this was a really great book. It's about Greg's mom, Susan Heffley getting sick of the town a her family always using technology, so she creates a petition to ban technology for a weekend and unfortunately for Greg, it works. His dad has also been bugging him too though, he has been bothering him about small habits, like putting the cap back on the toothpaste. But he has an accident and in order to avoid his dad's scoldings, he goes to a 1 week school field trip to a place called Hardscrabble Farms, and quite a lot of bad things happen there. This was a very unpredictable great book and I laughed a lot while reading it.

    I thought this was a really good book and I was very thankful that I read it. It is about a kid named Jayson Barnes, and he is really good at basketball. But unfortunately, something really bad happened to him, his mother died from using drugs and his mother's boyfriend, Richie abandoned him, leaving him alone in his apartment. He does good living by himself, stealing to eat but one day, his teacher asks him when he will get new basketball shoes. So he attempts to steal new ones, but get's caught. He is put in a new rich family, and now has to live with them. He gets put in a new team in a new school, and a whole new environment, but many new opportunities have come up. I really liked it and it was a very interesting book.

    I really liked this book because of the way the author wrote it. What happens is that when the main character, Tamara is taking a "shortcut" with her friend, Marshall, he gets beat up by another guy called Chad. In order to defend Marshall, Tamara grabs this weird looking mud and throws it at Chad's face. The next day, Chad goes missing, and Tamara has these weird little bumps on her hand which are actually single celled organisms that were mutated so they could survive in oxygen. They eventually spread and they were very deadly. I thought that this book was a really great book and I would love to read it again.
