Raven's Gate (The Gatekeepers) -
This is the first book in the gatekeeper series. It was a very interesting story. The book is definitely not for very young readers. It was kind of dark and creepy. Also, there were a couple of fairly graphic moments

Matt knows that something is terribly wrong but anyone that attempts to help him ends up dead. Matt must not only escape his captors, but discover more about himself and find a way to stop the villagers before it's too late.
