Review | About the Author | Teaser | Review: Hope [1] | The Series |
"Kathryn returns to Av'lor after seven months on the Daemon home world, only to discover the Daemons have invaded Earth. With Av'lor on the brink of an uprising and an unknown enemy upon its doorstep, the knights divide their forces to safeguard both worlds.

Sir Lanclor, torn between his duty to Av'lor and his dedication to Kathryn, finds himself fighting a losing battle on Earth. He realizes the fate of both worlds rests in the unlikely alliance of technology and magic.

Overwhelmed by a new threat far beyond that of the Daemons, both Av'lor and Earth must face a devastating reality."

"Gate" is the second book in The Knights of Av'lor trilogy by author Sam Rook, and it is a perfect continuation of book 1, "Hope" [read our review], in every respect.  This book also ends on a cliff-hanger (or two) and therefore I would suggest it should be read as part of the trilogy as intended.

The narration, as before, follows various main characters and it is beautifully written in the third person.  The author has the ability to make you feel for each character and to bring each situation to life.

Gate brings us new foes, new allies and most of all relentless page-turning action.  We do also find out more about the Demon's own world and the characters of Lanclor and Kathryn are developed further.  There are also advancements in the sub-plots which had begun in the first book and which unfold in Av'lor,  thus setting the scene for the final instalment in the series, which promises to be even more epic.

I am absolutely hooked and cannot wait for the next chapter which should be hopefully release some time in 2016.
