and if you've read the first book, you may have yet some a good idea of what's coming in this sequel of The Forever Gate - Part One
While in the first book the readers followed the - more than enough - action from the perspective of Hoodwink, this story describes the adventures of his daughter, Ari.
Now an old woman - 29 going on 90 because of the "Vitra" - Ari waits for her father to return from beyond the walls of the always more and more snow-covered city - from the so-called "Outside". Then he really returns, and drags her into a world where reality meets artificial context and intelligence...
And the relationship between the "Town" and its "Gols" to the "Outside" and the "Humans" will be revealed in some kind of first showdown, a first battle Ari has to win. But other - and more dangerous battles are waiting for her and her helpers.
And will be much more difficult to win - or simply not to lose???
But You have to read this second part of the "Forever Gate" after having read the first one, The Forever Gate - Part One
As the first one, this novel - of more than the double length than Nr. One - mixes Science-Fiction with Fantasy in perfect proportion, but this time adds Horror, too.
The Forever Gate make us doubt what it means to be real or a mirage...
Look in the mirror - what do You see?
This is the second Part of a 5-part story, with monthly sequels.
I am yet very impatiently waiting for Part III, which should be released soon...
This is a series that - until now - is a highly recommended read also for those who like their heroines tough and unforgiving!
Thumbs up, Hoodwink and Ari, plus their helpers, too!
And a heartful "Thank-You-very-much" to the Author Isaac Hooke, too!
