Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Slick salesman Gil and weary, neurotic Melissa purchased their tiny farm for a song, but the bargain came with a hidden price. Their formerly strong marriage, now strained from the stillbirth of their second child, snaps when preschooler Noah wanders into the forest. Each parent attempts a separate quest to retrieve the little boy from a bizarre parallel world of ghosts and monsters that lurks immediately beneath their property. Noah's determined grasp of fairy tale mechanics serves him better than Gil's recurring nightmares or Melissa's blind stumbling through secret doors, but Noah isn't a very convincing child, Gil and Melissa aren't very convincing adults, and the Undercity isn't a very convincing place. Despite interesting explorations of themes like promises and disclosure, Jasper (The Wannoshay Cycle) never manages to bring his story to life. (Oct.)

Review

In his third novel, speculative-fiction rising star Jasper offers a finely nuanced blend of fantasy and horror centering on a salesman turned organic farmer who confronts an unusual terror in the woods surrounding his land... Jasper demonstrates a sure hand in balancing his imaginative rendering of middle-class angst with the familiar supernatural ingredients of a 1980s-era horror novel. --Booklist

Michael Jasper takes you on an exciting, yet sometimes terrifying voyage to the Undercity in his book A Gathering of Doorways. Join the adventure; you won't regret it! The story will instantly enthrall you, and the characters will capture your heart. Jasper is a great talent and a brilliant story weaver. He's an author you will want to keep on your radar.

If you enjoy a good classic SciFi Thriller type story this book is for you. Strong characters, an interesting plot, lots of twists and turns with a bitter sweet ending. Who could ask for more!

I enjoyed this book and look forward to more from Mike. He builds good solid characters, has a fine ear for dialog, and of course a great plot. What more could you ask?
