I liked the book and I'm sad to see it going to a charity. But I have to downsize my library and this is one of the victims. The reality is that I will never be able to sit down and read it ....pity. And I've only referred to it briefly since I bought it. Maybe Chad thought I might throw into my writing some obscure phases from the fairy world. ...well a bit late for that now. But four stars from me.

The Eternity Gate by Katherine Briggs is a work of Young Adult Fiction. Readers of all ages who enjoy works of fantasy will enjoy this book. The twists and turns will keep you reading.

Katherine Briggs created a storyline and characters I wanted to continue reading about. Seyou holds secrets and serves as a handmaid to the princess. She represents the perfect female protagonist for this story.

I found myself wanting Seyou and her companions to succeed in their quest. I personally look forward to the sequel of this story. I look forward to seeing how the journey continues.

So, if you are looking for Young Adult Fiction, check out The Eternity Gate by Katherine Briggs.

I received a complimentary copy of this book, but this in no way influenced my review. All opinions are my own.

The Eternity Gate is well written. There are also fascinating characters and beautiful surroundings. I was struck by Seyo's self-assurance as a person who isn't afraid to ask for assistance and finds courage in the people she loves.

Along with the thrilling action and heart-pounding suspense, other themes like loyalty, duty, and merit are skillfully woven into the plot and character interactions, all of which led to a very fulfilling conclusion. This book will interest you if you like both fantasy and action.

What a fantastic debut novel from Katherine Briggs! I loved Seyo's first person narrative and her curious, clever, and brave soul that lived for all things history. Her priestess' heart was pure and receptive, which allowed her faith to grow and mature as she sought to find and open the Eternity Gate. Seyo's journey to save her kingdom had tons of action and battle, betrayals at every corner, and surprises at every stage. The plot was complex and deeply layered; the characters were quite wonderful and moving. My favorite character was Geras, who had a painful past but a heart-stirring redemption story and was the epitome of loyalty and selflessness.

It does end on a cliffhanger of sorts and I can't wait for the second book of this duology. Any fantasy fan would thoroughly enjoy this epic adventure of kingdoms at war and race to find and open the ancient relic prophesied to hold power and judgment.

I received a complimentary copy courtesy of Enclave Publishing via Celebrate Lit Tours and was under no obligation to post a positive comment. All opinions are my own.
