Any last hope now rests with five extraordinary teenagers: the Gatekeepers. Chaos, King of the Old Ones, calls them from Antarctica, where he is gathering his forces, preparing for a last battle in the frozen wasteland of Oblivion. But one of the Five has turned traitor. The others know that without him they cannot win
