The Gatekeeper: Book Two in the Marenon Chronicles Paperback – May 7, 2012
From the Author
Ever since I could first string words together, I loved writing fiction. I would always take my stories to my parents and they would read them, giving me positive feedback. Now, I write for the masses, and am happy to see that I still get wonderful feedback from readers from all over the world. I aim to entertain and leave boring at the door with my fast-paced stories. I hope you continue to enjoy my books, as much as I enjoy writing them.

If you enjoyed the first book, you are sure to enjoy this second, I know that I did.
Two days ago, I started book one, The deliverer. I enjoyed it so much that before I even finished it, I bought The GateKeeper off Amazon with the plans to start reading it next week, but ended up jumping right into it the following morning.
The story picks up 3 months after the ending of the first book, The Deliverer. It follows the continued endeavors and personal growth of the people of Marenon; the rebel group (Dunarian Council) in its efforts to collect the remaining medallions so that they can activate the Map of Marenon, Julians internal struggles as he assumes the thrown as the King of Marenon, and Silas and his closest friends as they set out to find the Gatekeeper to learn more about the prophecy.
I loved the way the story was written in multiple points of view, transitioning from one groups adventure to the next. Building up the suspense so much you want to skip ahead to see what will happen to that party next, but your so excited to get back to the other group to find out what is happening that you just can't skip ahead.
Many of the same characters return from the first book. And just in case you, too, were wondering what happened to Dink from the first book, did he find his wife...well you are going to find out.
Although they each are going about it differently, the three groups are striving towards a common goal to stop the Stühocs from taking over the land of Marenon.
Just as in the first book the characters struggle 'to do the right thing'. Sometimes they choose the right path, but other times they fall into the darker side of humanity. I found myself wanting to excuse certain behaviors because I liked that character, while at the same time saddened that the character had fallen short of personal growth, proving once again that 'pride comes before the fall'.
While this book answers a fair amount of questions, the story in no way is resolved at the ending.
Note to Jason Morrow, you best be writing at this very moment boy, I am not known for my patience and I just gotta know whats happening to them right now.
I recommend this book (series) to High Fantasy, Suspense, Mystery fiction book lovers.
This is a good story that flows easily from one character to the next. Dialogue is believable and not corny as sone of this genre. Each main character has an objective to reach... Silas, as the Deliverer, and Inga must find her mentor. And King Julian wants desperately to win the war against the Stuhocs, at any cost.
There are a few unexpected twists in the story and a lot of action, which keep tge story interesting and moving along. Betrayal after betrayal, and deceit abounds. With the end of book 2, it appears all is lost. It is a good break point in tge action.
3+ stars for action.
Hope you enjoy this great book as much as I did.
