I would like to thank Netgalley and The Writer's Coffee Shop Publishing House for giving me the opportunity to read this book.

I started this particular book with number four in the series. Therefore, it was a little confusing at first getting to know what was going on and piecing together things that had happened in previous books. There are a huge amount of people in this book. I could only keep a few in my head that were the front runners.

I liked what I read in this book. The characters all

This is the fourth book in The Gates Legacy series and it's a vampire series that just keeps pouring on action , danger and even romance. Not what I would describe as strictly paranormal romance but certainly a series with bite! Vampire politics are taken up a notch with this instalment and it's a juggernaut of a book that just keeps powering through a plot that pulls no punches.
The two main characters in this book are vampires Cyrus and Isidora. They met when the evil Goran finally met his end

I received ARC version of Reckoning by Lorenz Font, which is the fourth book of the Gates Legacy series.

The main focus in this book is on Isidora who is pureblood vampire and Cyrus who was turned against his will while he was kidnapped by Zane, Goran's grandson.

Cyrus is fighting against his nightmares and memories after he had been brutally tortuted by Zane and only light in his world seems to be Isidora who has made her mission to make Cyrus as her lover and make him acknowledge his growing f

Oh my gosh! The Gates Legacy is back with an almighty bang, and boy was it good to catch up with the gang! Picking straight back up where we left off, Rohnert is nursing some severe issues regarding his mate's passing, Cyrus is intent on revenge for his torture, Issy just wants to be loved and the rest of the gang are trying to hold it all together like some magical glue. Throw some ancient, and very freaky, enemies into the mix for power and you have your full set to play with, and play is what ...more

Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Well, we’re on to book four now, and each time I think the story looks closer to closing even more happens to open it up. Having finally beaten and rid the world of Goran you’d think Harrow and the team could relax but...not so. Humans and vampires are coming at them from all directions.
I’ve lost count of how many attacks on HQ and how many times they’ve had to move. No

This book was absolutely fantastic.

If you haven't read this series, you need to. It's one of the best vampire series I've read in a long time and this one definitely wins.

This book focuses heavily on Cyrus and Isidora and the challenges each faces. By the end of this one, I just felt so bad for Cyrus. He is one unlucky vampire. And Issy? Yeesh.

This book is definitely a prep book for an epic book 5. Zane shows up and is full of remorse. Cyrus' inability to control himself led to the death of one
Well Just as good as the first one. When there is evil about there is usually good about as well, ya know the old good vs evil. Tack Enterprise vs Goran and the evil bad. As one problem is dealt with, the hero’s of Tack Enterprises will find their work not done.

We met Cyrus a little bit in Tormented, now this is his and Isidora’s story where they are the main characters. (Loves her name )
No relationship is easy and for the most part everyone has a past. Cyrus and Isidora is no differe

Every time I get the next book in this series I'm blown away. I keep thinking that they can't all be good each and every time, and I am always wrong. Lorenz Font has built a world in New York City that's teeming with vampires. Most of them only want to preserve their race and live in harmony with the humans. Unfortunately, there are a few who want to rule the entire world and will stop at nothing to get what they desire. The group of vamps who are determined to keep things good is comprised of m ...more

Book 4 is no disappointment!

Ms. Font takes us on another rollercoaster ride and keeps us on our toes.

This book picks right up where Ascension, Book 3, left off and continues with the story of our beloved Tack Enterprise gang. Who knew that you could not only give us a new take on vampires, but keep the twists and turns coming!

I highly recommend this series if you love action, romance, paranormal and a completely new take on a vampire series. You will will want to kill Ms. Font, but yo

I say this more out of pride than for full disclosure and honesty reasons, but I was Lorenz beta reader for this series and the person who has spent the last two years regularly begging for Cyrus to have his own book. I fell for that man in Hunted and begged, pleaded and yes even demanded that he get a book of his own. I am so thankful Lorenz saw the brilliance in my suggestion, or demand, and gave him the fourth installment to The Gates Legacy. Actually it had nothing to do with me begging, as ...more

Mysterious Allies And Hidden Enemies

This series must be read in order. The first book is Hunted. The second book is Tormented. The third book is Ascension.This is the fourth book.

Cyrus has never really let himself get attached since he was a foster kid. He has not felt worthy of love since he lost his foster sister after their foster mother died. He feels even more worthless and dirty since being kidnapped, tortured, and turned by Zane. He keeps trying to scare off Isadora even though he is tota

As usual I hit the last page of Lorenz’s Reckoning the 4th in The Gates series wishing I could pick up #5 and continue the journey and battle the fighters at Tack Enterprises are on. The fighters must regroup after each battle, finding new allies, losing friends in the fight yet with time to find new love matches. Just as The Tack group defeats an enemy new threats emerge as old enemies hide and rebuild.

The world building of The Gates Legacy series is off the charts stunning. With each novel this world just grows in volume, depth and characters.

In Reckoning we have the story of Cyrus and Isidora (aka Issy), both vampires. Cyrus’ life as a vampire was forced upon him, and his need for revenge is deep and consuming. Issy has the ability to read minds… which can be beneficial and annoying. It’s not easy knowing everything someone thinks about you, the good and the

Lorenz Font is a cunning, creative,captivating new voice in Paranormal Romance. She created enchanting situations and characters with enough heat to set fire to everything they touch. In her 4th Gates Legacy series, Reckoning, the characters are fantastic, smart and sexy with their own vulnerabilities. The damaged relationship between these powerful protagonists get a second chance. It make us believe that everyone is capable of redemption.

The novel expertly entertains the readers through the

A professional daydreamer, Lorenz Font discovered her love of writing after reading a celebrated novel that inspired one idea after another. Since being published in 2013, she has been conspiring, butting heads, and enjoying her spare time with vampires, angels, samurais, and other creatures she has created in her head.

Her perfect day consists of writing and lounging on her garage couch (a.k.a. t
