The Power of Five: Necropolis

Horowitz genius. Hong Kong ruled by the dead. We don’t care how cold it is outside. You’ll sweat with fear. The Five have been found. Now the true horror is beginning. Evil has 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. Puddles of water turn into blood. Hideous creatures stalk the streets. The very air is poisoned. Scar’s only hope is to reach a secret door in the Man Ho temple. But even she can find her psychic power, it may already be too late.

    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.
