    A hauntingly beautiful and darkly magnetic tale of incalculable

    A hauntingly beautiful and darkly magnetic tale of incalculable vision

    “Gateway to Faerie” is an exciting new Young Adult/ teen distopian novel ideal for lovers of dark Faerie tales. I was instantly drawn to the magnetically attractive cover of this beautiful book, and liked the sound of the intriguing storyline with a different ‘take’ on the world of Faerie. As an avid fantasy reader and addicted to Fae, I could not help but be spellbound by the wonderfully imaginative creation of the Gateway.

    Fayth is the girl tasked with closing the portal, so as to protect her world from the destructive powers of darkness that threaten to destroy all she holds most dear. The story itself is set two hundred years after the world has been destroyed by a terrifying Faerie invasion {that’s somewhat unexpected!}, with dark haunting creatures filtering in through the Gateway and into the world.

    The sinister twist in this tale is that Fayth is a descendant of a powerful Faerie! The key to closing the Gateway is in her blood…
    She embarks on a dangerous quest to find the Bell Stone, and with it stop the world from being destroyed once more.

    Firstly, Fayth Blackman is your typical teen studying for her exams and a protagonist who I simply loved! The clever mix of darkness and light {with Fayth showing the light} was an inspired combination, plus the dark twist with Fayth’s Faerie blood putting an altogether innovative slant on the most extraordinary story. Books such as ‘Wicked Lovely’ and ‘Forever Fae’ don’t contain the deliciously dark side to the world of Faerie, which is so vividly realised in this creation…as luscious as chocolate! The world that Mandy has created is supremely magical and enchanting, plus the engaging narrative is highly addictive.

    This unputdownable, absorbing read was so riveting that I was literally glued to the pages and so I finished reading in a single sitting! Anyone seeking a sensational YA Dystopia that I grantee you will find hard to put down, will be dazzled by this ingenious story of immeasurable vision.

    *I would like to thank ‘Story Cartel’ for providing a digital copy in exchange for an honest, non-biased review of Mandy Bowden’s book *

    It's an interesting twist on the topic. I believe the book would be fine for most ages; no dirty words or sexually explicit language. I would have enjoyed more time spent polishing the story before printing. It seemed like the writer was trying to stretch out the wrong areas of the book; telling every step of the trip the same way every day was tiring. Writing the story in first person took too much away from it. Third person would have given it a more robust life. 3 out of 5

    I had a tough time getting into this book. I found it very boring. There was no character development. There wasn't much to hold my interest. I didn't like the way most of the story was told in first person by Fayth because I couldn't develop any feelings for her. I did not like this book.

    Good idea of a storyline

    She just doesn't make the story exciting, it's all about traveling to a deserted city to close the gate to faerie. It's a good idea that just wasn't executed well.
