  • Anthem:  

 Rip the earth in two with your mind
Seal the urge which ensues with brass wires
I never meant you any harm
But your tears feel warm as they fall on my forearm

But close my eyes for a while
Force from the world a patient smile

How can you say that your truth is better than ours?
Shoulder to shoulder, now brother, we carry no arms
The blind man sleeps in the doorway, his home
If only I had an enemy bigger than my apathy I could have won

But I gave you all

Close my eyes for a while
Force from the world a patient smile

But I gave you all

But you rip it from my hands
And you swear it's all gone
And you rip out all I have
Just to say that you've won

Well now you've won

Getting There is Half the Battle...

Armed with more unsettling knowledge about Gavin Devereaux and her circle of friends, Camille Hart is faced with new adversities and lethal propositions when she returns to the Amaranth exile to carry out Gavin’s risky crusade.

Realizing her journey through the bayou was only the beginning of her struggle to stay with Gavin, she finds that leaving her Louisiana home is the least of her worries. New evils await her on the other side, and as she and her friends press on with their mission, they are confronted with the reality that everything doesn't always go according to plan.

As secrets unfold and alliances are formed and broken, only the strongest will survive and the power of love will be tested when a war between witches, humans, and vampires erupts into an all-out power struggle and all is on the verge of being lost.

I received this book for review from the Shut Up & Read group on Goodreads.

As you may know, I absolutely LOVED Amaranth (The Resistance Trilogy, #1). Rachael Wade has a way of pulling you into a story and making you feel like you're along for the ride.

Same thing goes for The Gates. We hop back into the story where we left off and it's non-stop from there. Camille and Gavin's romance heats up and gets tested in ways you wouldn't even think of. We find out more about the characters that we were left wondering about in Amaranth.

While reading Amaranth, Camille came off a little too much as a victim but we get to see a side of her in book 2 that is a nice change. It's not enough that it's unbelievable, she's growing and it's completely natural.

I would recommend picking this book up the second it comes out. Which, by the way, is April 25, 2012. And if you haven't read Amaranth already, what are you waiting for?

Back to patiently waiting for the third and final installment.. *sigh*
