TEEN: Guardian of the Gate - Michelle Zink


Sixteen-year-old Lia Milthorpe must journey to the uncharted isle of Altus to continue her search for the missing pages of the Book of Chaos - the pages that could tell her how to end the prophecy that has turned generations of sisters against each other. But the journey will test more than just her courage, it will also test her loyalty to her beloved boyfriend, James. Meanwhile, twin sister Alice will stop at nothing to reclaim Lia's role as the Gate. And that's not the only thing she wants from her sister: there's also Lia's true love. The outcome of their battle could have consequences of Biblical proportions and, in the end, only one sister will be left standing.


If you’re considering picking up a new title, please be aware that this offering is a second title in the series and with the complications of the original make this one that can’t be read without having gone through that. Whilst the first didn’t exactly set the world alight it did have an interesting premise and with twins as the central characters it’s definitely something interesting.

What this offering does is build upon the background laid down in the original and did give the reader more bang for their buck which whilst may be a bit more promising seems to offer the reader even more for the next title. However that said, I’d advise that this is something that the reader perhaps borrows from the library to give them the tale rather than purchase as I’m still not confident in the authors ability to give them a solid seal of approval.
