Denied adequate food, forced to work long hours, and locked in at night, Matt plans to escape. He manages to take an old bike on the farm and pedals furiously away. No matter which fork in the road he chooses, Matt ends up back at the farm. He is in the midst of forces and rules he doesn't understand.
Matt enlists the aid of a journalist to find out why he hears strange incantations coming from the woods on certain nights, why there is a massive building in the woods that looks like a nuclear power plant, and why the villagers he has had limited access to all stare at him.
The plot and pacing of Horowitz's story keep the reader involved, especially as he ratchets up the tension and increases the stakes. Matt's quest to escape leads to violence to those who help him. Supernatural forces are unleashed which are not only coming from around him but from within Matt himself. Middle-grade fiction and older readers will enjoy Matt's story. It's a blend of thriller and supernatural horror.
streets dodging bodies, hiding from the enemy, fending the underworld creatures, worried for a friend, running from drug lords or on a stage being sold as a slave ....It has had it all for me. At times I have felt lumps in my throat and my heart race. Prebble's voice and tone has had an eerie
delivery that made me feel the danger throughout. This is the first book and I was hooked immediately. I was disappointed that
Mr. Prebble was absent for the final book "Oblivion,' but Panting does an equally fine job....

I can understand that my 12 year old did not like it because he is more into The Ranger's Apprentice and Harry Potter or into the World of Skulduggery Pleasant and I think Raven's Gate iwas too''mature'' for him, or maybe too dark or at times, too grisly.
My recommendation, as a parent, is that if your child is easily disturbed by supernatural/paranormal thing, then give this book with caution.
But for myself, I loved it and got the other book from the series. Maybe in two years time, my son will be ready to read it, so, I will keep it.
The great range of vocabulary I was brilliant and I have learnt many various different words.
The uniqueness of the idea of the story is definitely in my top 10 books because who would of thaught of a boy with powers and adults as witches????
If you, Anthony Horowitz ever read this I would like to tell you this book is AMAZING!!!! ;)
