The Power of Five: Raven's Gate - The Graphic Novel

By Anthony Horowitz, Tony Lee
Illustrated by Lee O'Connor, Dom Reardon

A stylish re-issue of the atmospheric graphic novel adaptation of the Number 1 bestseller Raven's Gate, from the creator of Alex Rider.

Sent to Yorkshire on a rehabilitation programme, Matt finds himself in the midst of a conspiracy of witchcraft and murder. The Old Ones – monstrous godlike beings once banished from our world – are trying to return. Matt is about to discover that he alone stands between the forces of evil and the annihilation of humanity... Featuring striking, high-contrast black-and-white art, this distinctive graphic novel captures the brooding atmosphere of the bestselling book.

  • Ideal for encouraging reluctant readers, this graphic novel adaptation follows Walker Books' publication of Stormbreaker: The Graphic Novel.
  • The profile of The Power of Five series remains high, with the publication of the third in the series, Nightrise in April 2007 and the Number 1 success of the second in the series, Evil Star, in 2006. Visit www.powerof5.co.uk for more information.
  • This edition has an impressive new jacket treatment to coincide with the new editions of the original Power of Five series.
