I will make this short and quick. I have been trying to form my thoughts about the book into words but nothing is coming. I was afraid to read it because Christopher was acting so cold that would have my heart broken if it wasn't for some tiny point of views from Christopher's side. The story continues from where the first book ended, with our heroes trying to find the gate. I loved both books for different reasons but the best end is the one on Beguiled. I swear if the author hadn't given us some hints I would have thrown my ereader at the wall and curl up into a ball and not speak to anyone for a while. I can't explain it but I had strong feelings about Christopher. I am glad Emma fought and didn't stay behind accepting everything.

Sweet mother of twists! This was amazing. "Beguiled" is, in my opinion, the best sequel "Gate Deadlock" could ever have. It's full of action, there's some angst, some twists, some romance and a little time travel.

*gets weird looks*

What? I never said it is your typical romance novel...

Anyway, "Beguiled" picks up right where "Gate Deadlock" left off: Emma is on her personal mission but the Squad has its own agenda, too. Yeah, not the best of luck. All I'm gonna say -so as to not spoil anything- is that things are a liiittle more complicated, a liiiittle more dangerous and certainly not just about Christopher and Emma anymore. Just read it, and you'll understand.

Now, off to the gushing part.

Have I mentioned that Emma is one of the most likable female characters out there? She's down-to-earth, she doesn't exactly take crap from anyone -Christopher included- she is stubborn and devoted to her "quest" of sorts. I also liked the fact that she wasn't acting like a damsel in distress throughout the whole book. Okay, there were a few tears and "hate you"s here and there but, in my book, that doesn't qualify as major girl drama. So, brownie points for that.

So, let's talk a bit about Christopher.

*takes deep breath* Before I start gushing about how amazing he is, let me just say that I love me some angst in my books. No, I don't like drama fests nor overly emotional heroines, but I like reading about a couple struggling through their relationship. For me, that's one of those key points where their relationship can only strengthen or weaken, where this amazing thing we call character growth happens. So, as a reader, I like seeing characters develop along with their relationships. My point being that I really liked Christopher on this one. True, I had some

moments, but overall I loved him.

The plot, was once again amazing, full of twists until the very last page and wonderfully executed. It certainly kept me on my toes without any misplaced action scenes. Plus, there were some really wonderful secondary characters -especially Alex and Mateo- that added to the story.

Oh, and of course I loved the setting! As I've already mentioned, I get this special feeling of bad-ass-ness (?) when I come across books set in Greece, so there's that too.

My conclusion/advice? You should absolutely read it!

** A shout-out to my friend, Lydia, for not dropping out, even when I was extremely behind and staying true to her no-spoiling oath. You and your iron will!...**

The second part of the Gate Deadlock series starts very nicely! Without the whole need to explain a backstory it is fast paced and keeps you reading, and ready to get answers left by the previous book. I will assume for everyone reading this review that you have read the first book of the series; if not, do it. Our dear heroine decides to take fate on her own hands, gets stubborn, and though admitedly I have wanted to slap her at some points, that just shows how she is a well rounded and evolving character. She is on a mission and she will not back down until she gets answers... and her man back. A plot that keeps thickening until its final resolution( and how nicely handled that was).And honesty this is a universe that coud have easiy been expanded and been written into a trilogy!
I must say that The Gate deadlock and Beguiled stand just fine among other fantasy books, and is a great reading for every lover of adventures!
Many thanks to Urania for provoding a pdf in exchange for an honest review!

So i was curious to see what would happen next and i was amazed! I loved this book! I couldn't stop reading because in every page there was a twist in the plot which brought excitement all over again!

The emotions were great!!And it became one of my favorite love stories! I really liked the way Christopher was so mysterious but all for a good cause and how it did not get boring with a simple plot. The narrative for one more time was excellent as were the settings in the story. A new character appears Mateo who is totally likeable although you are fooled at the beginning that he is not with the good guys. The ending was perfect!! And i really liked how Alex was not left alone because i really liked his character. I do love happy endings!All in all i loved it and i would read it again with same excitement!
Excellent work!It's a must-read!
