Overview

Glossy Cover-
Jake Reese thinks he's just a screwed-up high school kid living in a small town isolated in the Arizona desert. Traumatized at an early age by his mother's sudden death-and believing he might have had something to do with it-he's allowed his guilt and lack of self-confidence to rule his life.
Hailey is the fiery little redhead that sees Jake as more than a just a good friend. When she invites him as her date to a school function, it brings down the walls he's built to protect his heart, and sets off a series of events that threaten not only Jake's life, but that of everyone around him.
The discovery of a portal on the outskirts of town brings Jake face-to-face with death and reveals a closely guarded secret about his mother. No longer is his memory of her the only thing that haunts him. Something evil from her past has escaped through the portal, and nothing will prevent it from trying to steal Jake's future.
Can Jake overcome his fears to keep Hailey safe? Will the decisions he's forced to make destroy everyone he knows and loves? And ultimately...is he strong enough to live with those choices?

Meet the Author

S.G. Daniels lives in rural Central Illinois with her husband of thirty-one years, and two spoiled cats, Payne and Jenks. She works full-time in a local medical facility as a patient accounting refund specialist. Most of her evenings she can be found in front of her computer, working on story ideas, or learning the ins and outs of the writing world. On the weekends, if she's not spending time outside, she's usually found nose-deep in a book. When S.G. unleashes her inner daredevil, she usually takes off through winding timber trails or country roads on the ATV. Her weaknesses are iced tea and pretzels, especially when she's working on a story.

I bought this book not long after the release. Being a foaming-at-the-mouth kind of YA fan, I was eager to read something that promised me druids and portals. It was certainly a step away from vampires, and I appreciated the different paranormal aspect. From a Reader's Perspective: I adored Jake's character. He's such a sweet guy, but messed up enough so he doesn't have that "perfection" aura surrounding him. While he tries to do the right thing, he sometimes ends up bungling the whole scenario. All in all, a guy I could really root for. Hailey, on the other hand, was a little too perfect. She could've used a little bit of bad girl or naivety to really round her out. There were a few jarring places in the book where time skipped forward without letting me know what was going on. I had to turn back and be sure I didn't miss something. Pacing in the beginning of the book is slow, but it picks up toward the end. Speaking of the end, there's a huge cliffhanger and an unexpected twist that kind of left me with my jaw dangling. I won't ruin it for you, you'll have to check it out on your own. World building and descriptions were well done, and the author rounded out the main character well. From an Editor's Perspective: I'm a huge stickler for pronoun usage. There were so many pronoun errors in this book I became frustrated and put it down often. I don't usually give examples in my review, but this one calls for at least one. "His dad started laughing so hard he had to bend over to grasp his knees. It was contagious, and he started to laugh right along with him, and it lifted the load off his shoulders." Now, the author means Jake in the second sentence up until the use of the word him, then it should be Jake's dad, and then Jake again when the word his is used. There were other errors as well, but I'm not going to detail them all out here. I mentioned above about the jarring time shifts. Rating: +1 for giving me a well rounded main character I could root for. +1 for the twist at the end that left me a little sad +1 for an awesome cliffhanger that I didn't see coming +.5 for descriptions that were well done -.5 for jarring time shifts that left me scratching my head a few times -1 for need for an editor to correct pronoun usage, time shifts, and other little things Overall, 3.5 out of 5 stars. But I round up, not down. Highly recommended if you want something to take you away from the world for a little while and if you want a very different kind of paranormal read.

The Druid's Doorway (The Reese Brothers Series) by S.G. Daniels is an intriguing YA paranormal story. The story takes place in Arizona and involves a doorway to another realm that is guarded by a Druid. But there is an evil entity trying to come through the doorway and claim the Reese brothers. The story was a unique and interesting concept and the plot had a lot of surprising twists and turns. The main character in the story is Jake Reese - a high school student who is suddenly forced to deal with the paranormal world. Jake is a complex and well-developed character. The book was filled with many secondary characters who were important to the story and to Jake. Each character had his/her own personality and the author made sure that each character was developed and fit the story. It's hard to comment on the storyline without giving spoilers...so let me just say that the story had components of good vs. evil, life and death, romance, family & friendships, and a lot of action. I definitely recommend this book

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. A good paranormal book is not hard to find however that was not true of this book.  I was not certain what I would find between the pages of this book but I soon found out. From the POV of a teen aged boy and his soon to be girlfriend we find out what it is to be afraid of things that go bump in the night,
