I just finished reading The Gates by Rachael Wade
A Paranormal Fantasy Romance
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 Gavins’ 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.

I was one of the lucky ones to receive an ARC copy of this little gem, second in the Resistance Trilogy by Rachael Wade. The first book, and also a pleasure to read, was Amaranth.
The Resistance Trilogy is not your normal vampire story. Rachael Wade has created an amazing world for these creatures and she does a terrific job going from our world to theirs. The Gates has everything, vampires, witches, spells, portals, villains, suspense, mystery, and my favorite, love. Even sex this time. J
I love reading from the male point of view and was quite pleased to see some of that in this book. I think reading from the male POV gives that extra edge into the hero’s mind, and quite honestly, men baffle me so when I get to read what they are thinking, even if it is just someone’s fantasy and imagination, I consider it a treat. That might be why I love reading romances written by male authors so much. But I love it even more when a woman does it, because after all, we know what we want more than the guys do and when a female writer can do it and make it sound believable, that’s magic, and Rachael Wade knows magic. I loved the twists she weaved into this one and was extremely pleased by the turn of events.
Ms. Wade’s writing is spot on and solid. I’m really looking forward to the next one in this trilogy and her next book,
Preservation, coming May 25th, 2012 by Rabbit Hole Press.
Thanks so much for reading and feel free to leave a comment. I'll be sure to pass your well wishes along to Ms. Wade.
