I received a copy of this book from Rachael Wade to review. I reviewed the first book and loved it. The sequel lived up to my expectations. =)
I'm so glad to be back in the comfort of Camille and Gavin. I love those two together. Although, in this book they went through some trials. I felt terrible for what Camille was put through because of certain female that Gavin used to be with showed up in this book and made it difficult for both Gavin and Camille. Camille took it very well though. I'm very impressed the way she was in this book. Unlike, the first book when she had been put through hell in relationships and would just run away from the situation. In "The Gates", she stands up more for herself. She even helps Gavin out with the Amranthians.
"The Gates" is all about preparing for the Resistance. It's also all about going into Amaranth and getting the Amaranthians on board with attacking Samira. They're forced to deal with situations that they weren't expecting though. For instance, Gavin's crazy ex, the Amaranthians resisting to what Gavin wants to do, and then the unexpected twist at the end that makes Gavin rethink his strategy to overthrow Samira. Gavin throws a big secret to Samira that makes her furious. Samira puts Gavin in hard position in this book because of that secret.
Gavin and Camille's relationship is tested so many times in this book also. Two things that will blow your mind. I can't say poor Camille in this one since she was stronger than ever in this book.
Even the other characters played a major role in this book, unlike Amaranth.
If you've read the first book "Amaranth", you'll most definitely love the sequel. If you haven't read this Series, you definitely should add it to your to-read list.
In my opinion, this series isn't like any other series out there. One thing I love about this book the most, is there's no love triangle. Just a warning though there is a conniving ex though.
Recommends this book to anyone who loves paranormal romance, a different take on Vampires and loves female characters who grow into a stronger character.
I already added the 3rd book to my to - read. =)
