Second in the Dusk Gate Chronicles, Roots of Insight takes teenager Quinn back through a mysterious gateway from modern life into the world of Eirentheos, where time moves faster but return is always bound to the setting of the sun. Soon she’s trying to work out how to disappear for a weekend without anyone noticing—wouldn’t every teenager long to do that sometime? But Quinn’s disappearances are filled with adventure and danger, and a secret that gradually weaves its way into the tale, waiting for further books to reveal the whole truth. Readers might want to start with book one, where Quinn first encounters the royal family who now seem almost as close as her own mother and siblings. This clever teen now finds her grades slipping as she struggles through a tangle of teen emotions, drawn to William, to Thomas, to the boy next door, and wondering what true love feels like. In the midst of it all, she struggles to find her place in two different worlds, and to rescue a friend who disappears into the dangers of enemy territory. Keeping secrets, remaining loyal, and giving honest trust are persistent themes in this novel. Sweet family relationships keep the story moving forward. A slight excess of panic reminds readers the characters are still very young. And a touch of politics keeps more things safely hidden until volume three (or later I suppose). I enjoyed the story, though some passages seemed a little repetitive. I enjoyed the characters and their relationships too, though the teens, like real teens I suppose, seem rather disturbingly eager to bend rules and adventure alone. Most of all, these worlds are fun, their interactions nicely revealed, and the touch mystery has a way of growing on you. This is a fairly slow read, but a fun teen fantasy and nicely complete, for all that it's only volume two. Disclosure: I was given a free ecopy when I invited the author to my blog.

In this second book of the Dusk Gate Chronicles Quinn is trying to balance her world in Colorado with her new boyfriend Zander and her world in Eirentheos and the princes of that world William Rose and Thomas Rose. William is the prince that is the fellow class mate that she had spied on and discovered Eirentheos.. Quinn is invited to attend a family wedding of Williams sibling in Eirentheos and while there becomes involved in a rescue and even more intrigue that she then discovers she has more connections to the world that she first new. This book was just as great as the sequel and made it difficult to put the book away to accomplish other things sleep.

For lack of a better word the series, in my humble opinion, was perfect. Quinn is a great character! She is more or less thrown into this new world where she is expected to make decisions that no 16-17 year old should have to make. Throughout this book you watch her grow up and become quite the lady! The family she discovers in this other world was incredible. I have never been so in love with so many characters. There are 13 children in this family and the love they have for one another was one of things that kept me reading this book. It was so neat to see the relationship between all of them. It was equally as nice to see how the parents were with the children. I felt that all the characters were developed to the point where I could easily picture them in my head and even hear how they would sound when they spoke and the different mannerisms they might use. There is a love story in this series… actually there are quite a few but the main one is between Quinn and William. I really enjoyed watching their relationship blossom in these books. The series is much more than a love story though. It's about making decisions that might not be what you intended for your life but having the faith that you are doing the right thing. I would consider this for an age group of 12 and up. There was nothing inappropriate in these books. It reminded me of the old movies where things are implied but not shown. Our oldest daughter will start middle school next year and I would have no problem allowing her to read these. In fact I will be encouraging her too. I really look forward to the day when I can introduce her to all these characters that I have been reading.

Quinn left Eirentheos at the end of the Seeds of Discovery. This book picks up with Quinn returning to school Getting back into Earth life is more difficult than she had anticipated. Before entering into the new world, she had struggled with trigonometry, but after spending ten days where she didn't have to think about school at all, she finds trigonometry to be more like a foreign language. She is saved by Zander, the boy she was discovering a blooming relationship with prior to her adventure. Zander starts helping her "catch up" on her homework even though he didn't know that the feeling she was suffering from was that she was behind. In reality she had only been gone for a single day and no one knew about her disappearance. She is also surprised by her mom with everything she needed for the Valentine Dance that Zander had asked her to go to, which she had forgotten. Things with Zander develop into full blown boyfriend/girlfriend status in a short month where Quinn is absorbed into his world, but also trying desperately to maintain some kind of friendship with William. Zander shows his obsessive side not wanting to share Quinn's attention with William since he does not understand their relationship at all. Quinn is unable to tell him about William's world and how much she really wanted to go back. The decision to visit again is made when she receives a royal invitation to William's older brother's wedding. Life gets complicated trying to juggle friendships in two worlds as Quinn struggles to find her place in either one. I have absolutely loved this series so far. By the time the end came, I was pretty certain I knew a key piece to the story, which was confirmed at the devastating cliffhanger. It is devastating just because I WANT MORE! I sooooo want to know what's going to happen next. It's a fantastic YA story that even adults can enjoy and I highly recommend it for anyone who likes reading about alternate worlds and fantasy.
