Book 6 in the series and it could be the best yet! It starts from where the last book left off, so we are not missing any parts of the characters lives. Zander and Owen both take a lead role in this book and it is lovely to get to know both of them better, Quinn's sweet and thoughtful little brother and her ex-boyfriend who couldn't let her mysterious disappearance rest. Alvin pops up frequently in this book too, as does the misogynistic Tolliver who has escaped from prison and is bent on getting back what he thinks should be his. There are lots of plot lines in this book which aren't fully resolved by the end of the book which leaves this reader hoping for more (soon, please Breanna!) - who the dying man was, what Zander will do next and how Owen will explain his absence etc. There were also some hints of plotlines showing what could be in store for some of the characters once they finally get to Philotheum, and what a shock ending!!
For those who haven't read any of these books, they are what I would describe as 'fantasy light' by which I mean that they are about a different world but one which resembles our own world a few hundred years ago, there is far more good than evil and absolutely no vampires/werewolves or such like. They are written as young adult books but can be enjoyed by all ages, I wouldn't recommend starting with this book but rather go back and read the whole series and fall in love with Quinn and Will, Thomas and Mia, Linnea and Ben etc. etc.

I really loved this book. I think the plot is brilliant- I have to say, when I started reading this book, I had ideas about what might happen - but I couldn't have guessed. It was absolutely brilliant.

I really think these books demonstrate good values - putting yourself before others etc. And like I said on my review for the first 4 books, it shows girls the right way that a guy should treat you in a relationship - I can't hide from the fact that my daughter will one day be old enough to have a 'boyfriend'....so many movies and books give us the wrong idea of romance - but I have passed these books to my daughter because more than anything I want her to make good choices...by reading and seeing the beautiful relationships in this book, I really hope that she will look for a relationship like the ones demonstrated in these books - not just with the main characters, but with the others too. I love the fact that even though the main characters have problems - they work them out in a mature way - the book doesn't hide from the fact that relationships can be tricky and sometimes you get upset with the other person - but these Dusk Gate books demonstrate a good way to handle disagreements in relationships.

The book stresses the importance of community and family. I love this.

How can anyone give less than five stars for this series of books a true adventurer. At least a seventh book is required to round off the series. My wife is now reading this set of books on her kindle and I find it quiet amusing that she is having trouble putting it down after the hard time she gave me. Keep up the good work Breeana you are worth every penny. Looking forward to seventh book you must write

I loved these books so much I have read them all three times . I once read one of these books in less than a day! I loved how you go back to Bristlecone to find all Quinn's old friends including Owen .I also loved all the drama like the case of rabies . But the beautiful thing is all the description about every part of the book .Now I am quite young to be reading this book but I loved it anyway.I would recommend this whole series to thirteen year olds , maybe a bit younger. LOVE IT

This has been a lovely series to read. The story line is good but it holds a real innocence. It takes me back to my childhood when fairy stories were fairy stories, good was good and bad was bad. I will look forward to the continuation
