Necropolis by Anthony Horowitz

I found that Necropolis was an excellent book partly because it was a page turner. I always love a book that makes me want to keep reading even when a teacher says to pay attention. I like how you easily are able to switch from one point of view to another in a way that is very easy to follow.
I usually don’t really like dark books all that much because I don’t like when main characters wallow is self-pity. I am very glad that you did not go in that direction. Everyone has there down moments but when the main character can’t even attempt to think in a positive way, well, I have a hard time continuing to read. Once again in a nutshell I am glad that you did not go that way with Scar.
I am not really sure how I feel about some of the characters possibly being gods reborn or something. I mean all of the gatekeepers are connected right? So if they are connected then how are Matt and the twins related to Pedro and Scar? It leaves an interesting thought that I hope you will address in the next book.
I have also wondered if anyone from the past will come to replace one of the five. I mean I can see how a person from the future can look at the past and understand what is going on but how could a gatekeeper from the past be able to figure out what is going on in the future. I guess I will have to hope that no one dies because a person from the past might not be up to it…. except maybe if it was Scott that was kill… never mind.
Overall it was a very good book and I look forward to seeing how they will reunite to defeat the old ones.
