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

Great fun, and a must for anyone in Gloucester of a certain age - if you weren't there this will help you realize what you were missing.Published on 16 April 2015 by steve birt
I can easily see this becoming a movie in the Shaun, Worlds End et al genre, but this is soooooo much funnier. Read morePublished on 7 Oct. 2014 by Mr STEPHEN JAMES CASTLE
