Gated II: Ravenhill Academy is as good a suspense thriller as any written by the big name authors. Indeed, it could serve as the Indie Publishing Poster ChildREADERS' FAVORITE

"If you read Gated & loved it, then I know you will enjoy this book. The ending leaves us with an opening for a third book which I'm sure is what you want!" HORROR NOVEL REVIEWS

It has been 10 years since the events in the small picturesque town of Eden. Lives were forever altered as two newcomers found the courage to peek behind the curtain and bring Tolan Christian's reign to a violent end as the town burned around them.

No-one was more affected than Sarah-Jane Mears. The once bubbly ball of good nature is now a shadow of the former woman she used to be. After travelling to try and find a new home she has eventually settled in Northern England. She has taken a teaching position at Ravenhill Academy, an exclusive private school.

But now there is a new student who has just transferred. A young American boy who is strangely familiar and oddly charismatic. As the school breaks for the Christmas holidays the harsh winter weather has cut them off from the outside world. Sarah is starting to learn that Ravenhill is an old building seemingly with a life and an energy of its own, one that is slowly stirring.

She is going to realise that not all lessons are learnt in the classroom and that some secrets won't stay buried

Enjoyed this one as much if not more than the first. Would like to know more about the fate of the couple from the 1st book, and the child they had.
Well priced for a great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 2 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I said some things in my first review and I’m pleased to say they do not apply to book two in the slightest!

Book one was a little much for me with over-description and a bit too much filler. I struggled to keep my attention on it and due to that, I didn’t enjoy it as much as I could have. It was still enjoyable but it reeked of a Steven King fan.

I am happy to say Matt Drabble is the kind of author who listens to his reviewers, talks to them and builds on the information they give him. He’s still a relatively new author but he sees what people want and he gets on board with it. Gated II is slightly faster paced, interesting in it’s description and actually the imagery really works well! I think everyone has their own Ravenhill Academy image, either from a building they’ve seen as a child or in a film.

Each character is lovingly nurtured and you will find yourself worrying about them in their various situations. Whilst some of the characters are the unlikeable types, you still find yourself rooting for them and hoping for the best outcome.

As much as I enjoyed the book, it could have been scarier, the story has the potential to be scary but I kind of like the way it is. It’s suitable for young teens and adults whilst still being nasty enough to be horror. I like the idea of it and it really hooks you in towards the end.

Personally I’m impressed, I want to see more from Matt Drabble and I really hope he carries on the way he’s going. This book shows improvement and a growing confidence and as soon as he finds his feet there may be no stopping him! Come on Matt, show us what you’ve got!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great follow up in this series 21 Mar 2014
By Lynelle
Format:Kindle Edition
I received the book from the author for an honest review.
What an incredible book! Not to mention the many layered plot filled with many twists and secrets. The craftiness of every scene as it keeps your interest throughout. With very strong and interesting characters that makes it believable, not to mention the bizarre cruelty of the unexpected as the story unfolds.
The story' s steady build up had enough tension in and it spurs you on to come to the conclusion. It simply draws you into the dark world of men and their ever growing need for power.

Good versus evil is the main topic of the plot, and the hold evil can have when you are susceptible to its poison. Willing and unwilling sacrifices in blood that turns good hearts to do evil's bidding. At the end a sacrifice did save the day but at the end you are left with a clue of things yet to come. Maybe another book is in the making?

I'm not a horror fanatic, if I have a choice, horror is not even on the bottom of the list. But, - always a but - this is the second book that I have read from the author Matt Drabble, and once again his story telling captured my imagination as I leaved through the pages of this book, the follow up on Gated: Welcome to Eden Gardens.
His focus is on the fact that good can win evil, no matter how derange that person or persons can be. That in sacrifice you can find the peace you are longing for. Even if deception is clouding you, you can still come out a winner.

As in the case of Sarah Jane Mears; one of the survivors of the first book, Gated this is very true. A young woman that hides away in a small village in England to get away from her own dark secrets as fears and panic attacks strips her from her own true self. Hiding away the secrets of Eden and her nightmares.
