    An ancient evil is unleashed. Five have the power to defeat it. But one of them has been taken. Fifteen-year-old Scarlett Adams is caught in a media storm after her strange disappearance - which she refuses to explain. But far away, in Peru, Matt Freeman guesses the truth. Finally, he has found the fifth Gatekeeper: the last of the Five who must stand together against the dark powers of the Old Ones. He's not the only one looking for her.

    Setting the scene

    Too much scene setting for final book and not enough story. Good narration as ever.
