Book Review: The Gate of Fang and Thorn

Title: The Gate of Fang and Thorn (Chaos of Souls Novella #2)

Author: R.M. Garino




Could you walk the Halls of Demons and live?

Logan Fel’Mekrin and his cohort must survive three days in the Sur, the realm of darkness. Here shrulks hunt them by the scent of their very souls and reality preys upon their fear.

They walk the Sur to prove their worth. This is their final test to join the elite warriors of their kind, the fabled Elc’atar Guard.

But Logan was rejected by the love of his life right before his trial. Now he knows there is no coming back from this epic hell.

He encounters unlikely allies while he navigates the bloodthirsty terrain, but he’s not sure if they are real or just figments of the netherworld.

Hoping for a noble death, Logan and his squad mate Cormac sacrifice themselves. They hold back hordes of beasts while the others escape safely to their home.

The Gate of Fang and Thorn ominously shuts and they are left behind.

Mayhem, betrayal and death ensue.



My Review

5/5 Stars

When Logan is tasked to survive in the Sur, he must be prepared for all the challenges that will come his way. This is a place that is very capable of changing someone if they are not careful. They have three days to make it through the gate before it is closed. Will Logan be able to battle all the demons inside and successfully make it back in time?

Just like in the first book in the series, the author captivates you with a fantastic world full of brilliant creatures and landscapes. The characters, Logan in particular, are well-fleshed out and easy to relate to. Even for all that Logan has been through, he is still a noble force to be reckoned with.

Even though this is a short book, it packs a wallop. I was on the edge of my seat rooting for Logan, and I love stories that can immerse me like that in their world.

5 stars!

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
