An interesting second book in this series. Matt is trying to find a place in the world after the defeat of the Old Ones at Raven's Gate. But it appears that there are other gates, one of which is going to open soon. Matt has to again shoulder the responsibility and find another member of the five, alone he is weak. It's an interesting series and the characters are well drawn. I'm not sure that they wouldn't be more believable as slightly older but still they work. Yes it has it's stretching credulity moments but it's an enjoyable read all the same, I'm looking forward to book 3 and the promise of further books in the series.
