Raven's Gate

Anthony Horowitz has a new series, the Gatekeepers. This novel is different than his earlier series that began with Stormbreaker, and introduced us to Alex Rider. This one is just as good -- maybe better!

Matt Freeman is a 14-year-old orphan who is accused of a crime he did not commit, and he is sentenced to jail for three years or to one year in the LEAF (Liberty and Education Achieved through Fostering) project. In this project Matt will be sent to live with a family in the country for a year.

He is sent to Lesser Malling in Yorkshire to live with Mrs. Deverill -- an angry, mean widow. Everyone he meets seems to be very weird! They all seem to be involved with some kind of black magic. Is Matt a key to this? Is he one of the five children who saved the World from black magic before?

Raven's Gate is the first of 5 books in this series. I would label this novel as adventure, mystery, and science fiction.
