Publisher's Summary

"The Gateway is open...."

These cryptic words wake college student Jess Ballard from a terrifying dream into an even more terrifying reality. Jess' life has never been what anyone would call easy; doing damage control in the wake of your nomadic, alcoholic mother doesn't exactly make for a storybook childhood. But now her world has fallen apart just when it should be coming together: her mother gone - dead under mysterious circumstances; her life uprooted to stay with estranged relatives she's never met; and there's something odd about some of the people she's been meeting at school:

They're dead.

Aided by Tia, her neurotic roommate, and Dr. David Pierce, a ghost-hunting professor, Jess must unravel the mystery behind her hauntings. But the closer she gets to the truth, the more danger shadows her every move. An ancient secret, long-buried, is about to claw its way to the surface, and nothing can prepare Jess for one terrifying truth: her encounters with the world of the dead are only just beginning.

    "Couldn't put it down"

    I wasn't sure about the narrator to start but it didn't take long to get into the story and the narrator was easy to listen to and separated the characters well.

    "Not the Book's Fault"

    I bought this book after seeing an ad comparing it to the Outlander and All Souls series. So my expectation was this would be a well researched fantasy novel supported by actual historical detail sufficient to make you almost believe the fantasy. Unfortunately that wasn't the case. This book is a straight out fantasy with no detail to lend even a hint of believability. And it should be properly labeled. It wasn't even classified as YA, much less teen or preteen which seems a much better fit. It certainly wasn't geared towards adults.

    I realize this is the first book in a trilogy so the overarching plot line can't be revealed in too much detail. But there were gapping holes in the story that had to explained in order for the first book to make sense. And they weren't. Nor were many of the primary character's actions remotely plausible.

    All of this said, it was not an enjoyable reading experience. But I don't blame the author as much as her publisher. Their promotion of this book set the bar far too high. If not for the ad I would have remained blissfully unaware of this book. It isn't a book I would ever selected if I had done a little research instead of relying on ad. And I know better than that. So it is my fault too.

    But I think the author and the publisher would have been much better served if they marketed this to a younger fantasy market. Not people who enjoy well researched historical fiction with a little fantasy and romance on the side.

    "...no comparison."

    Purchased this on a whim. Fell for, "If you love "Outlander or Discovery of Witches" you'll love this book....uh, no. No comparison...false advertisement.

    For the next one. Great read without all the unnecessary fillers so many books seemed filled with to prolong the story. Very fun, interesting and emotional given the lives of the main characters.

    "easy, and enjoyable"

    I downloaded toys because it said that readers of the All Souls Trilogy and Outlander love it. I would say this is more of a teen read. not very many layers, and it could use more character development.
