The beginning was a little slow but it became a can't-put-it-down book quickly. Loved the ending and I'm glad there's more in the series. Anticipating the arrival of the other 4!

Enjoyed it even more the second time (has been a few years, so I'm re-reading the first four to build up to the fifth and final book). Love how the author says if his "Alex Rider series is James Bond aged fourteen...Raven's Gate is Stephen King for kids". And by "kids", he actually means older kids and teens. Somewhat similar to the Lorien Legacies series (I Am Number Four).

A decent read but not great. A good start to the series with lots of foreshadowing. A little depressing and dark.

This book is the first book in the Gatekeeper's series. It is the story of 14 year old Matt who is involved in a crime and must choose jail or the LEAF program. As part of the LEAF program he must leave London for the English countryside where he is forced to do all sorts of menial farm work but does not attend school. Pretty soon, Matt realizes that the villigers and this village are weird. He must get out, but how? A cross between Stephen King and Harry Potter, this book is a quick and enjoyable read.

This is great!
The beginning is a bit slow, but it picks up, don't worry.

I personally think this one of better Horowitz series that not too many people know of. There are 4 books to the series (there suppose to be 5!! – Can’t Wait!!!!) It involves five teens with powers, magic and evil corporations.

this book was great i read all the other books and they were all so cool i cant wait till the fifth book to come out and i wish they would make a movie out of it
