Editorial Reviews

Review

“Ryan’s first novel skillfully blends theology, murder mystery, horror, and paranormal investigation through one man’s struggle with his belief in God. Solid characterization and a grounding in his subject matter make this series opener a real attraction for fans of The Exorcist and the darker fiction of C.S. Lewis and Charles Williams.” —Library Journal, starred review

“Very well written . . . 3 Gates of the Dead is like a Harry Potter novel for adults.” —Sam Alexander, director of development, the Wolper Organization at Warner Bros.

“I cannot recall the last time I was so enthralled by a book that I was unable to walk away to even do the most normal things—like eat. However, that is exactly the impact 3 Gates of the Dead had on me. I became so caught up in the original story (which is refreshingly filled with lifelike characters), that time just vanished. This is a must read for all horror fans, and anyone seeking out an original and creepy tale. Even if you are not a ‘reader,’ this book is so well-written it doesn’t feel like you are reading, just that you are a fly on the wall watching the tale unfold. I cannot wait to see what Jonathan Ryan writes next; I will be first in line to read it! 3 Gates of the Dead will make one hell of a film!” —Jessica Cameron, scream queen (Truth or DareSilent NightThe Black Dahlia Haunting, TLC’s Brides of Beverly Hills

“A roller coaster ride of a horror story—the suspense keeps building and you know when you hit the other side you are going to come out screaming. This book falls in with the tradition of The Exorcist and Stephen King’s supernatural thrillers. There is a quality to the story that reminds me of Poe’s short stories at their best with their unforeseen macabre twists.” —Midwest Book Review

3 Gates of the Dead brought me to that place of intellectual terror that only results in pure joy over a book that so immediately transports one to other realms of the deeply macabre, in a primordial, Lovecraftian scope . . . and send shivers down our necks.” —Scotty Roberts, publisher, Intrepid Magazine

“Jonathan Ryan’s Bradbury-like style comes across subtle, yet terrifying. 3 Gates of the Dead is a must-read for anyone who enjoys well-developed characters, smart dialogue and a flat out awesome story. I look forward to reading more about Aidan Schaeffer and count myself as a huge Jonathan Ryan fan now. I am hooked on this series!” — T. Michelle Nelson, author of the Lily Drake Vampire series
