Victoria suffers the normal troubles of every teenager: homework deadlines, a protective mother who keeps knives under her pillow, a missing father, and if she’s not careful, Victoria falls into her paintings. OK, so, not so normal problems. The paintings that lead to other realities are Gateways, and all is not well in the worlds outside our own. A shift in power is ...more

I wrote the following review for my web site, but I'm posting it here, as well, because it was definitely a worthwhile read.

One of the things I liked best about Gateways was the detailed description. It was easy to get a feel for the varied surroundings because they were so well laid out, and there were many different settings to explore this way.

Beyond that, I was pleasantly surprised by sentences that made me curious and then rewarded me with more information further in the book. I felt like I

The pages just kept turning and turning. The book has a very Avatar: The Last Airbender feel to it, however the benders (or mages as they are called in the book) are living in a completely different world with different rules and magics. Mrs Schaub's writing is smooth and flowing, easy to follow and she is very skilled with cliffhangers and portraying her characters' emotions. I am also very impressed with her manner of action/fight-scene writing. I find the intense scenes very difficult to ...more

This book is simply amazing, I loved it! I was so pleased with the perfect mix of Fantasy, Mythology and Christianity. It is filled action, adventure, friendship and faith. Not to mention it will keep you on the edge of your seat. I can't wait for the next book!

When Victoria paints landscapes, she becomes fully immersed in her artwork. She can feel the wind coursing through her hair, smell the various scents of nature. Her immersion goes deeper than her love for art or her need to escape the stresses that come along with having an anxious mother and an absentee father.

You see, Victoria is a Painter with a Capital 'P'. Her landscapes feel so very real because they are real, in a sense. They're gateways. While her paintings aren't passageways to real

I am waiting for the next book in this series, which is supposed to be out in August. Written by local (Lansing) author Jessica Schaub (who is, by the way, a delightful lady), this book brings a fantastical world with interesting, moral characters. I believe would be a great read for tweens, as "adult themes" are not present, while excitement and plot twists are. There are biblical and Christian references throughout, making the story more relevant to those of us who can sympathize with the ...more

Jessica skills include quoting any line from the Princess Bride and finding time to read. She'd like to say that she keeps a neat house, but with four home-schooled kids, it's just not on her priority list.

The heart of her stories stem from her love of God, her faith, and her family. “Without those influences, there is no story in my life; no beginning, no middle, and certainly no happy ending.”
