Product description

About the Author

I was raised in Gloucester in the English West Country where I spent my youth talking inane rubbish with my friends, going out to gigs and writing silly stories. I went to Portsmouth University to study Palaeobiology and Evolution, after coming to terms with the fact that I wasn’t going to find a career I was interested in with that, I moved to London. After several frustrating years pretending to care about my attempts to break into IT, I decided to go ahead a do what I really wanted to and write. I mostly write sci-fi and fantasy comedies. I currently live and work in London.

I didn't really know what to expect from this book (it being a debut novel and all).

We're introduced to a shabby character in a sleepy English town who has found himself trapped for years in a very unusual job. Taking a chance opportunity to make some friends and push back against his mysterious employers initially seems harmless but soon puts him on a collision course with... forces. beyond. his. control. (Read that in Redd Pepper's voice.)

The characters are believable (and flawed) and the fantasy elements are bent to action and comedy as often as they're used to drive the plot. There are some neat self-contained comedic scenes as well as some dramatic socks to the guts.

The mix of the fantastic and the mundane inevitably invites comparisons to Terry Pratchett's young adult novels, but Gatekeeper is less straitlaced and more fun.

For two measly quid it's definitely worth a look.

I didn't know what to expect of this when I first started but I was gripped very early on by the fantastic story that Tess Stenson has created. The human characters she introduces have a charming mundaneness which makes their involvement in the unfolding extraordinary happenings all the more gripping and hilarious. I look forward to more in the future. Read and you will not be disappointed.

Enjoyed this book. The characters are engaging and real, the situation fantastical and the denouement satisfying.

The main character will appeal to everyone who has felt themselves an outcast. His friends are sympathetic characters - I like the cook best.

Loved it and will look out for more.

What can I say about this book.

Well I can say that it was marvelous, fantastic, superb and brilliant. Unfortunately these words do not do this story justice. I thought that this was such a clever idea. I loved the characters, flawed and extremely endearing, even the demons (especially George). I want to read more of their adventures, Charlie needs to return on a regular basis to keep the group together.

I do not want to say too much about the story line as people really need to read this, except plenty of Tea, Cake and masses of FUN. If you read this and are the slightest intrigued, I suggest that you purchase it, Gloucester will never look the same.

Loved it, Loved it, LOVED IT.

Enjoyed reading this book very much. Any explanation could spoil the story, so, this is all I can say.

Good story, good characters, with a twisted logic that works.

I purchased this book as a summer holiday read. The best compliment I can pay it is that it kept me from world-class snorkelling. As a novel it succeeded by introducing me to characters that I found engaging and whose fate sustained my interest throughout. Unashamedly geeky, it was not oppressively so and it mixed the prosaic and the fantastical extremely well. I am reliably informed there is a sequel brewing which I am very much looking forward to.

A wonderfully whitty+fun read by Tess Stenson.
Terry P type humour but also in niche of its own. Intelligent+thoughtful fantasy sci-fi fun with whole rounded characters whose lives evolve together in two different worlds.Get hooked by their characters and envisage their surroundings as they battle angels+demons both light+dark.
I'm not the best at reviewing so read it for yourself and know if U get gripped like me there's a sequel 👍
