This book surprises. Somehow Mr. Horowitz has turned an ordinary fantasy story to something more. It makes you want more, and keeps you interested until the last page. Scarlett's story is a bit scary and exciting at the same time. Raven's gate was very good, Evil Star wasn't as good as it, Nightrise could have been better, but this one was great work. Very nice book, easy to read, makes you smile and send shivers down your spine. Can you ask much more? ^^
