The deal was simple: Carolyn and her friends could return home after 21 days. What could happen in 3 short weeks?
Rather a lot: Carolyn’s mother is livid about her “rescue” and Edward is being groomed for a chiefdom he doesn’t want. The Agency’s “elixir of life” has been perfected, and O.W.E. permits mean that certain humans have been authorised to work in the demon realms

So you wanna play with magic? Think you can handle the spells, magicians, demons from other worldly realms, twisted kings and advisers who have secret agendas? No you haven’t stepped into the twilight zone, you’ve journeyed into the brilliant mind of Louise G. White! This lovely muse has found favor, she shines brightly with five stars!

The destroyer is back. Pledged by Louise G. White brought me back into Carolyn’s world, her universe, really, with all of the characters, their personalities, their quirks, and for some, their intense dislike of each other. Note and Ethan have proven they would do anything for Carolyn, but it seems playing nice isn’t one of them. Must our brave destroyer choose who she loves? She would so rather be slaying demons. Danger, the unknown and the “elixir of life” are about to make Carolyn’s world a l ...more

After finishing a book with a spectacular ending, be it tragic or happy, I’m high on the feels and then looking back days or weeks later I don’t understand what made me give it such a high rating. This series has once again been the exception, throwing my all my expectations out the window – a really good thing!

This amazing epic fantasy trilogy reaches the most perfect ending in Pledged Book 3 of The Gateway series.  Prepare to be amazed, surprised, thrilled and so much more. 

I have been captivated by these novels as Carolyn along with the brave and growing members of the protectorate team, travel throughout realms saving innocents.  This is a jaw dropping, action packed novel that sweeps the reader along  plunging into a mystical world with its powerful witches, dysfunctional fairies, magnificent mage

Carolyn’s story is one of my favorites at the moment! I’ve been waiting what feels like a long time to know what’s going to happen to her! It’s fair to say that this story is well-written. In fact, if you look back to The Call (a great first instalment) I really think White has made leaps and bounds with her craftsmanship. This author took the story in a completely different direction to what I initially expected, and while I always struggle to keep up with a whole bunch of different characters, ...more

Never sure where to start after finishing such a riveting tale. I’m not a hundred percent sure if this was supposed to be the final book in this series, but if not, great. If it is, that’s not bad either. White gives a very satisfying ending, and like all great stories, they never truly end. There will always be the, wait, what else might happen, and then, I want to know more. This book will leave you reeling with emotions; and oh so much more.

Oh my gosh where do I start. I have been hanging out for this book since I finished Chasing the Demon in July last year. I’ve now read it and Loved it, but am sitting here trying to figure out how to tell you about the story without spoiling it.

At the start of the book we get a wonderful summary of the story so far. I loved the idea of the refresher summary and I loved the execution - It was like a warm hug from a friend I hadn’t seen in ages.

Each book introduced new charters while keeping the o

I've loved this whole series - I've been intrigued by this universe and I've cared about the characters; the plot twists have been surprising, the situation remains compelling. Now I'm blown away by how much book 3 expands the series' scope, and demonstrates White's ongoing growth as a writer. These novels are smart and witty and engaging, and book 3 develops the sweep of an epic with complex family dynamics across multiple dimension and species. Book 3 ties things up in quite satisfying ways, b ...more

This book is outstanding, and I could not put it down! I have now read all three books of this series, and through each twist and turn, things that I believed in so fully were turned inside out, and I found myself switching sides and perspectives several times. Louise is truly an artist who weaves a story so intricately that it sucks you in before you realize it's three in the morning and you've been up reading all night again. This magical masterpiece never failed to surprise me, and I am waiti ...more

Holy moly, talk about an amazing third installment. From Book One, it was clear to me that Ms. White is a fantastic storyteller, my favorite part being the world-building. She just DESTROYED my expectations for this third novel by exceeding them. I love a book that keeps me guessing throughout, and then gives me a plot twist I never saw coming. I’m not surprised, I’m just completely satisfied after reading this—well, maybe not completely ;) Looking forward to more from Ms. White!

This is the third book in this series. When I first started reading it, I was a little confused. It had been some time since I read book 2. There are a lot of characters and a lot of stuff going on. But if you don't have time to re-read the prior book, that is ok, because it works itself out. I loved the Destroyer and to be honest, wasn't sure which guy I wanted her to end up with. Twists and turns made this book unable to be put down. The ending brought everything together, but leaves room for ...more

Wow I loved this series. I am gutted this was the last book, because was everything I was expecting and much more. It's truly a good read with amazing characters and unexpected twists in the plot. I would recommend that you buy the whole series because you won't be disppointed. I have read the series twice now and I am captivated with the story. Hope u enjoy it as much as did?

In "Pledged" the third book in the fascinating "Gateway" series the action-packed adventure continues as Carolyn, Mario and Ethan fulfill a promise to her father that breeds danger and emotional conflict; Notechis (Note) confronts his worst fear accepting his destiny to save another; and Amanda struggles with her rescue because of the strength of her bond to the Skean Chief. With the "elixir of life" being perfected Miranda Levy's power-hunger and obsession to control the Agency intensifies. Wit ...more

Having read the first two instalments in this series I couldn't wait to see where Carolyn's fate led her next. Of course with so much happening between books one and two, and such a fantastic array of unique characters with their own challenges, Carolyn's story wasn't the only one I was interested in.
Starting shortly after the end of the last book, we are straight away emerged back into the story. I particularly liked how, in this book, the author had done subtitles highlighting the person's poi

I read parts one and two of this series and gave them five stars
and maybe I waited too long between books
because I first I was a bit confused.
When I finally got back into the story the characters I remember and a few new ones were there and the author did an amazing
job capturing a different world in this fantasy read. I find it astonishing that the author is able to not only keep track of all the characters
but also give them personalities the reader can follow along with a love. I won't go int

A fitting conclusion to a good series

After a slow down in book 2, this one brings the series to a sparkling, riveting, and compelling conclusion. I'm happy I continued to the end with Ms. White

This short series was good. I liked all the different characters. It was a little hard to keep up with who was where and what was happening at time. But overall it was a great story.
