Matt thought his troubles were over when he closed Raven's Gate...but in fact they were just beginning. His fate?and the fate of the world is tied to four other kids across the globe. The second is a street kid in Peru. He and Matt have never met; they don't even speak the same language. But destiny is going to throw them together as the evil threat of the Old Ones grows and another Gate suddenly comes into play. Another high-octane blockbuster from the author of Stormbreaker and the other books in the Alex Rider series.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sequel In an amazing follow-up to Raven's Gate, Anthony Horowitz creates a stunning thriller full of unpredictable twists and turns that will have you holding onto the edge of your seat as Evil Star takes you on a wilder ride than ever before. I really enjoyed the plot of Evil Star because it had so many unexpected outcomes as the story progressed. However, the overall story seemed a bit more rushed and a bit lower quality than the first book in the Gatekeepers series, Raven's Gate. Nonetheless, I was satisfied following Matt Freeman's crazy adventures as he travels throughout the awing landforms of Peru, committing incredible feats the whole way. Any teen who is not afraid to indulge in some wild fantastical thrilling adventures, get ready for Evil Star, a book created just for you! For its amazing integrity, I give it 4 out of 5 stars.

Editorial Reviews

Kliatt This sequel to Raven's Gate (a 2006 ALA Quick Pick for Reluctant Readers) won't disappoint fans to this exciting new supernatural series from the popular author of the Alex Rider books. Fourteen-year-old Matt's adventures mainly take place in Peru this time as he tries to thwart the plans of an evil businessman to open a gate to let the manacing Old Ones into the world and unleash a new world war. The discovery of a 16th-century diary by a Spanish monk gives clues to the location of this gate, while Matt's dreams lead him to recognize another young gatekeeper, Pedro. Descendants of the Incas help the two in their daring escapes from the bad guys, and the mysterious real-life Nazca Lines in the Peruvian desert play an important role. Lots of action, horror and suspense will keep readers turning the pages and eager for the next volume in this thrilling series. BooklistGr. 5–8. Fourteen-year-old Matt Freeman, who forestalled the evil Old Ones in the riveting Raven's Gate (2005), finds himself on yet another precipitous adventure. This time Matt and Richard, the journalist with whom Matt has been staying, travel to Peru, where Nexus believes a second gate to the underworld is poised to open. The when and how of the event are left to Matt to discover, which he eventually does, but not without some lugubrious descriptions, an abundance of dramatic escapes, and the help of a Peruvian teen, Pedro, with whose destiny Matt's is linked. Although this is neither as tightly constructed nor as compelling as the lead title in the Gatekeepers Series (which was equal parts horror and adventure), this book still has its moments, especially at the end, when the secret of the second gate is revealed, and Pedro finally settles into his place as the second of the children prophesied to save the world. ––Stephanie Zvirin
