My name is Ember, and I've always known I don't belong in this world.
When I tried to correct the mistake, I wound up in a mental institution. That's when things really got wild.
A girl tried to stab me, a boy tried to rescue me, and I found out mean girls aren't the only monsters.
Now a gateway to hell is about to open, and I'm supposed to save the world, but I don't even know if I can save myself.
And yeah, I know—everybody has their demons. But mine want me dead.
Gateway is page-turning YA urban fantasy with a touch of romance. This trilogy will appeal fans of The Mortal Instruments, Pretty Little Liars, and Legacies.
Ember Lyons isn’t surprised to wake up in a mental hospital. She is surprised to wake up at all. When a voice starts filling her mind with suggestions, she assumes her mother has passed her mental illness to her. But her time in the hospital convinces her that maybe she isn’t crazy after all. Then she finds herself at the Institute trying to save the world from creatures no one believes exists. Will she survive the fight?
Intriguing story. Towards the end, the underlying love story started to detract from the main story though.
more drama and furry fun
Smooshie and Lily both seem to have noses for trouble.
At first glance, a cougar shifter and a pretty pitty might seem an odd match, but they seem to work well together.
Smooshie and Lily really seem to rescue each other- and they do it time and again.
Both also seem to have a knack for investigating and they are a boon to friends, both four legged and two legged, as well as shifters who are sometimes both.
Love solves everything between this pair, even as it provides them with a wealth of suspects for a man gone astray, and someone with a nasty streak.
In the end, aside from her witchy bestie , for Lily, her four legged bestie is Smooshie!
📕📗📘📙 After a recent re-reading, this was my latest feedback: Lily is finally ready to take her GED exam just as gal pal Reggie's daughter and her buddy Addy get ready for their graduation
abusive husbands, pistol packing women, other women holding together or working to tear others apart make for drama and action packed reading
along with an heroic pittie or two, and some serious and lusty mate type action, this is a howling good read!
I absolutely loved ember’s journey with her mind and how the author perfectly conveyed her deepest feelings and emotions perfectly especially about Taren and the institute!!! Would definitely recommend to my friends😁!!!!!!!
