Product description

The Five have been found – and now the true horror is beginning. As evil is unleashed upon the world, the Nightrise corporation has wicked plans for them. The Old Ones have taken hold in the city of Hong Kong – now a city of the dead, governed by monsters and demons. Once in, there is no way out… and Scarlett is trapped there. Now, where puddles of water turn into puddles of blood, where hideous creatures stalk the streets and the very air is poisoned, the Five must face a horror even worse than death. If they fail, there will be no escape… Screamingly scary and shuddering with menace, this fourth episode will make you sweat with fear.

    Shocking twist

    This epic 'quintology' (is that what you call a five-parter?) reaches its fourth and best instalment yet. Set in a creepy Hong Kong overrun with evil Old Ones, it ends on a shocking twist that will leave you desperate to read the next (and final) book... Hurry up Mr Horowitz, I want to know how it all ends!

    This Book is one of the best books in the Series. It is gripping and suspenseful, so you won’t be able to put it down! It has twists and turns – it has everything you could possibly want a book to have. I recommend this book for ages 9-12.

    I picked up this book and thought it looked pretty cool- kids with powers is always awesome! * * * *! But still pretty scary/freaky.

    I love this book but it was not the ending I expected it didn’t explain anything.

    In this finale to the series, the five are brought together by more danger and mystic powers. Scarlett feels unimportant and lost, but her powers are the strongest of all- summoning things beyon dher imagination.
