The Devil's Gate,
This review is from: The Devil's Gate (Diskette)
Anna Haspura was orphaned as a very young child and sent to her distant relative Tavas Haspura, to be raised at his ranch, The Devil's Gate. Anna had grown up loving the wilderness and the mystic about the ranch and the people that raised her. Tavas was a demanding man, but a fair man and she loved him dearly. So when she found out that Tavas didn't have long to live, she dropped everything and raced home with mixed feelings. She was anxious to see Tavas and spend time with him and hopefully brighten his remaining days, but yet dread filled her at having to see Ivan, Tavas's nephew, once again. He was the reason she had left The Devil's Gate to begin with. Rumors of the Cult of Akerra performing their evil rituals on the ranch are surfacing and it is not helping that some of their cattle are being killed in a sacrificial way. But Anna doesn't believe that the cult is behind this and that someone is doing this to gain control over the ranch. Little does Tavas know that when he passed away and left the ranch to Anna in his will, he put her life in extreme danger. Who can Anna trust? Every time Anna thinks she knows who she can trust something else happens. But one this is for certain, someone is trying to kill her.
The book is fast paced, action packed and full of thrills and chills that will keep you on the edge of your seat and hanging in anticipation until the end. Vickie Britton has captured the magic of the remote rustic wilderness and the mystical heritage of the Basque people and their traditions then mixed it beautifully to support the events and characters.
