Overview

Nobody at Bristlecone High School has ever paid attention to William Rose. Since the day he arrived in the small, mountain town years ago, he's blended into the background.

Quinn Robbins never noticed William at all, until the icy Friday night he suddenly appeared directly in the path of her car, and just as suddenly vanished. After that, she found herself noticing him constantly, seeing for the first time just how different he was.
First were the books he always had his nose buried in. Why would a senior in high school always be reading medical journals? Then there were his habitual appearances down by the river every Friday night, just like the night she almost hit him - not to mention his odd habit of disappearing there, with no place and no reason to hide!
Overtaken by a sense of curiosity that she just can't seem to shake, Quinn finds herself trying to figure out exactly what is going on with him. When he starts to show up in her dreams, she can't decide if her curiosity has become too much of an obsession ... or if there is something ... more.
Finally it becomes clear that the answers she seeks might only come from finding out what is happening at the river. But on the night Quinn decides to follow him, her very new mystery draws her fatefully to a very old mystery. To a discovery she thought could only exist in a fairy tale.
Uh oh, Quinn. 1st Period History will never be the same!

In the Dusk Gate Chronicles, you'll meet characters who find their way straight into your heart, on a journey you'll long to join. Join readers everywhere as you fall in love with the Dusk Gate Chronicles.

    Awesome new author! I loved this book!

    Wow! What a great book from an awesome new writer! Breeana was offering free copies of her book in exchange for honest reviews, and I thought I would lend a hand, really hoping that I would like the book. I didn't need to worry, though, because I was drawn into the story from the first page and I couldn't stop reading until I was finished! The characters were fully fleshed out and the world building was amazing!

    Quinn starts following her schoolmate William around when he begins to act mysteriously and finds herself literally falling into a whole new world! Eirentheos sounds like a beautiful place, and is described very well. Thankfully, Quinn isn't the panicky type of girl, so we didn't have to read on and on about how there was no way this could be happening to her, was she going crazy, etc. She accepted where she was because she had no choice - it was real and that's all there was to it. This was definitely a refreshing viewpoint for the heroine/female MC to take! When she found out she was sort of stuck there for 10 days, she decided to embrace it and make the best of it, and to help out as much as she could.

    Unfortunately, during Quinn's time there, there was an outbreak of a very serious illness among the children of the kingdom. As William was one of the doctors in Eirentheos (people live a lot longer there as 10 of their days equal one of ours), Quinn traveled around the kingdom with him (and his very charming brother, Thomas) to help out. There is a nice little mystery involved in what is making the children sick. There is also a definite bad guy in the form of Tolliver, who tries to force himself on Quinn as soon as he meets her.

    I'm not going to say any more about that because I don't want to ruin it for you, but I will say that I can't wait to read the next installment in what is looking like a very intriguing new series from a very talented new writer :D

    Awesome!

    As I have gotten many free books, several of which were the first in a series, I expected this to be another one that I would wait till later to read the subsiquent book of. That was 4 days ago, and I've purchased and read the other 2 books that are out right now, and I can't wait till the next on is out!
    Frome the start, you get pulled into the characters. It's like you are really there, a part of their story. Mmany questions are left unanswered, but that is what drew me into the next books.
    A wonderful series!

    In this story Quin Robbins is a teenager who starts noticing fellow classmate and the things he does. While spying on him she follows him what ends up being a gate to another world where she ends up having connections to. She has several adventures and misadventures and goes back and forth between the two worlds only one day in her world in Colorado ends up being 10 days in the other world and the gate is only open at dusk for a short time. This book was intriguing and fun and really made it hard to put down in order to get other things done.

    Great book!

    Loved this series! I love it when you can read a series that keeps you interested without having to resort to sexual situations at every turn. That said, this series is extremely entertaining. I read the whole whole 4 book series and Christmas bonus in 3 days. If you enjoy realistic fantasy, read it!

    Love this story!

    Can't wait to read the next one! William andQuinn's adventure was exciting and eventful. Great story for young readers. I couldn't put it down and read it in one day ...but 498 pages is a quick read for me when the story moves as good as this one. It would make a great movie, of course with the other3 sequels. Looks like I'll be buying the rest of these!

    Great book!

    At first its slow but it sets up the book nicely. Stick with it! it all changes about the 127th page in this book will have you needing to read the next there are 4 books to this set , there is a box set for 9.99 i would sugest you buy it. Its a very great book and you wont be disapointed with it. I think this is well wrote and very thought out. And it had me thinking all the way to the forth book! I am very happy with it and there are so many pages i cant even remember if this was a 600 page book or the 900 paged one but if your looking for some thing long to read this is it ! Soooooo worth the money spent! Its just a awesome read, i cant wait to share this with my friends! Hope this helps:) - ERICA
