"Elves and dark wolves and humans � oh, my! This story centers itself in a forest - no, that�s not quite right � in two forests, one in the human world and one in Emeralusia, land of the elves�.

Ms. Blackwelder has gone to great depths to create Emeralusia, its creatures and its history...The characters are great�.I�d recommend this for YA!" -Magnolia @Goodreads

"A must read for anyone who loves a good story, and the idea that true love conquers all." -Shawn @Goodreads


"I must say I could not put them (Gate of Lake Forest/Prisoners of Pride) down. I read the first book in one night; I know my students would love to hear more about your books.�-Charla VandeBerg (Raymond B. Stewart Middle)

I found this a charming and engaging story for YA romance and fantasy fans. The POV character, Michael brings a refreshing innocence and rekindles those first flushes of love in the reader. I enjoyed the way fantasy blends with the "real" world. Evelyn is an appealing character and her conflict between the worlds is well-drawn by the author.

Can you believe that a gate between worlds exists in the wilderness of Colorado? Well you can now. Ami Blackwelder gives young love a thriving environment in her novel, Guardians of the Gate. Aimed for young adult readers, Guardians of the Gate, shows the senior year of Michael, a star high school soccer player, as he falls madly in love with Evelyn, the school's mysterious new arrival. With precise detail Ami Blackwelder leads the reader through Michael's eyes as he discovers that there is more to his mysterious dream girl than meets the eye - Danger. For thousands of years elves lived hidden in the forests of Colorado in peace and tranquility. But when Michael follows his new found love through the gate to her true homeland, he discovers that there is more to his world than he ever dreamed of. But once he leaves the world of the elves. Shadow Wolves, thriving on death and destruction, follow Michael's scent back through the gate into his home of Lake Forest. Can Evelyn protect Michael from the shadow wolves? Can Michael protect his friends, family, and the one he loves from the monsters in the night? Guardians of the Gate is a must read for anyone who loves a good story, and the idea that true love conquers all. Shawn
