Reading the "Wit'ch" series, previously my only real frustration had been the proliferation of apostrophes (and perhaps ...should take note here that searching for "Witch Gate" doesn't give you any hits, only "Wit'ch Gate" does). Having just finished "Wit'ch Gate" in the space of two evenings, I must say that I've put the stuttering-effect of apostrophes aside, and will joyfully dive into this series again.

The cast of characters seemed swollen to capacity with the last book in the series, and yo
Que vous dire? Un gros pavé mais je savais que j'allais passer un super moment. On ne s'ennuie absolument pas. Ce tome est plein de surprise et de rebondissement!
Plus qu'un tome pour mettre fin à cette série... Toute les bonnes choses ont une fin...
Belle suite.

Très belle suite, mais il faut dire qu'à ce stade de l'aventure, on a fini par être habitué au style narratif. Les surprises sont moins au rendez-vous. Il y a toutefois des révélations intéressantes et l'histoire reste aussi addictive qu'auparavent.
Bref résumé:
Une série de hasards amène les héros à se séparer pour se diriger vers différents points stratégiques pour des raisons diverses et variées.
Il se fait au passage que ces destinations doivent leur permettre d'accéder aux points f

Recommends it for: Fantasy lovers
This, the fourth book in the Banned and Banished, is full of suspense and action. Tons of magic and mayhem. It's a page turner top the fullest extent and there's no much chance of putting it down or turning away because it certainly keeps your attention. But it ends with that same feeling of... unfinished business. SO much left to be done, so much to finish, and you can't wait to continue on. To read more about the characters you love, mourn those that are lost, and FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENS NEXT!

First and foremost, this book is miles better than the prior ones in the series. The writing quality has hugely improved and someone clearly got on his case about of the 'suddenly's that were the bane of my existence while reading. I noticed within the first few chapters and held on to the vague tattered notions of hope that maybe, just maybe, it wouldn't descend back into mediocrity. I wasn't disappointed, thankfully. I'm both impressed and pleased for Clemens that Wit'ch Gate really pulled thr ...more

Another griping entry in the Banned and the Banished series. In this entry, Clemens splits the party even more than in previous books, telling the story of three separate groups of the heroes as they race to destroy the Weirgates and prevent the dark lord's plans for them. At this point in the series, the heroes are powerful enough that their challenges are often more on an environmental scale or dealing with internal conflicts of how to deal with nearly impossible choices.

The themes of the ser
In de eerste 3 delen van Verboden en Verbannen is het al duidelijk dat we te maken hebben met een goede schrijver en dat het potentieel voor een goed verhaal er is. Het komt echter te weinig uit de verf en Clemens gaat zich af en toe flink te buiten aan het tot in bijna misselijkmakend detail beschrijven van het kwaad dat deze wereld in verschillende vormen teistert.

In Het Boek der Poorten heeft Clemens me eindelijk te pakken. Het gebrek aan richting van de eerste boeken wordt hier opgelost doo
Alweer het vierde deel van V&V uit. En om maar gelijk met de deur in huis te vallen: hij was weer geniaal!

Ik kan me op dit moment eigenlijk ook geen negatief puntje herinneren, dus dat zegt ook wel wat.
De verhaallijnen waren nu in drieën gedeeld, waardoor het, behalve soms heel spannend, ook overzichtelijker werd. Elke groep met zijn eigen missie, en de verdelingen waren weer heerlijk gedaan. De schrijver wisselt steeds op het juiste (hoogte)punt naar de andere lijn, waardoor het altijd sp
(This review may contain spoilers).

As much as I really do like this series, this book wasn't quite as good as the others. I noticed that there wasn't much of the book given to the minor characters who formed romantic relationships. And I didn't find Tyrus' feelings for Mycelle all that believable. (I don't think I did on the first reading through, either, but I can't remember for sure).

I do like the way Elena's and Er'ril's relationship has formed through the books. Tol'chuk remains my favourite
Ich liebe die Bücher von James Clemens ja eigentlich immer, dennoch musste ich diesem Band leider einen Stern abziehen, da es stellenweise etwas langatmig war. Das Buch hat drei Handlungsstärnge und diese wechseln sich immer ab. Der Handlungsstrang meiner Lieblingsfigur hätte, wenn es nur diesen gegeben hätte volle 5 Sterne bekommen, da dieser vor Spannung und Magie nur so gestrotzt hat. Die anderen beiden Stränge waren auch gut aber nun mal nicht so gut wie der andere. Deshalb muss ich leider e ...more
This was another good book in this series. I will say I didn't think it was quite as good as the second and third books. It didn't feel as suspenseful; you really knew where everything was going to end up. The one thing that I really did not like was the scene towards the end that was completely ripped out of LOTR. It was obvious and unnecessary and quite jarring. It just didn't fit in the plot. Still, I enjoyed the book and am looking forward to the fifth and final book of the series.
Toujours aussi bon !
Wit’ch Gate was amazing. Filled with twists and turns, Clemens weaves yet again another novel worthy of praise. I believe that the cliffhangers that the author places in his book are fewer which is good but I really don’t like the way that he switches characters from book to book. I hate adjusting to another story plot when the prior story plot had just reached its climax.
The beginning of the book didn't hold my attention very well, I found myself reading other books and returning to this one finally I made myself read this book about 1/4 of the way through the book my interest was peeked and I found that I couldn't stop reading it. I am glad I stuck it out and have already started reading the final book and am already intrigued
Brilliant. I seem to use that word a lot with this series, but they really are well written and have been moving the story along at such a pace that I'm hanging on to every word and have to resist jumping ahead to see what's coming up.

Taking a break to build the anticipation, but I only have one book left...
While I enjoyed the book it took a lot longer for it to get interesting. It was a slow start and I for the first 15% of the book I didn't want to keep reading. So happy I made myself cause the rest of the book was great! I'm so sad the next is the last one.
Ook van dit deel heb ik weer genoten. Net als de andere delen val je van het ene spannende moment in het andere. Het laatste deel laat waarschijnlijk ook niet heel lang op zich wachten ik ben namelijk heel benieuwd hoe het afloopt.

Wonderful series !
I lived and breathed these books for years.
I loved the plot, the story, the details.
It are the books that got me into reading again.
These are definitely books with a lot of memories for me.
Het vierde en voorlaatste boek uit de Verboden en Verbannen-serie van Clemens. En weer een mooi verhaal. Maar toch vond ik dit een beetje minder. Misschien wordt het toch een beetje teveel van het goede?
Tìbò Le dwàrìn
Un tome bien épais, et rempli d'action.
Les personnages se séparent pour affronter chacun leur propre péril.
Dommage qu'il ait fallu attendre le tome 4 pour enfin apercevoir l'aspect épique de l'aventure.

Clemens continues to impress with new characters (mostly magikal) and new situations in this ongoing saga. I am looking forward to the last book in the series and will start it tonight.

This is the start to an epic tale of a young girl into woman in a tragic era in her society. It is filled with ups and downs and keeps your heart racing with all of the twists and turns.
Another amazing book in this series. It just keeps going from strength to strength. Love the characters and that just grows the further along in this series that I get.
Boy, I didn't think I would ever finish - this book, 4th in the series, seemed to drag on and on. Still the ending was good. Now to book five!
I just finished reading the 5th book. I loved them alll. The ending is predictable, but the journey there was exciting and intriguing.
Bon sang vivement que la suite soit en poche que je puisse le lire ! C'est vraiment une très bonne série que je conseille.
Très bon livre hate de lire la fin de cette saga, mais un envie de romance bien neuneu se fait sentir: vais-je y céder?
I finished this a long time ago. Loved the whole series. It has almost been long enough I could read it all again. (^^)
Again an excellent read. From book one, the story flows well and the characters captivated me. Loved it!
