Getting There is Half the Battle...
Armed with more unsettling knowledge about Gavin Devereaux and her circle of friends, Camille Hart is faced with new adversities and lethal propositions when she returns to the Amaranth exile to carry out Gavin’s risky crusade.
Realizing her journey through the bayou was only the beginning of her struggle to stay with Gavin, she finds that leaving her Louisiana home is the least of her worries. New evils await her on the other side, and as she and her friends press on with their mission, they are confronted with the reality that everything doesn't always go according to plan.
As secrets unfold and alliances are formed and broken, only the strongest will survive and the power of love will be tested when a war between witches, humans, and vampires erupts into an all-out power struggle and all is on the verge of being lost.
This is book two in The Resistance Trilogy. As you may know, I absolutely LOVED the first book, Amaranth. Rachael Wade has a way of pulling you into a story and making you feel like you're along for the ride.
Wade does not disappoint in the follow-up. We hop back into the story where we left off and it's non-stop from there. Camille and Gavin's romance heats up and gets tested in ways I wouldn't have imagined. I was able to see more of the characters that I fell in love with.
While reading Amaranth, Camille came off a little too much as a victim but we get to see a side of her in The Gates that is a nice change. She doesn't completely change but she is definitely getting stronger and it fits her perfectly. I am highly anticipating the last installment to see how the story ends and I want to to find out who wins this war!
I would recommend picking this book up the second it comes out. Which, by the way, is April 25, 2012. And if you haven't read Amaranth already, what are you waiting for?
5 out of 5 stars
