Product Description

Product Description

For months, the Continent has been mired in a devastating war: artillery barrages lasting days, the death rattle of machine guns, toxic chemical gas, futile charges across no-man’s-land toward enemy trenches. Caryn Hallom, the Foreign Minister of the Republic of Deugan and the first woman to have achieved such a powerful position in the fledgling democracy, is horrified that she failed to prevent the war from breaking out on her watch.

When Caryn finds herself trapped together with Michael Ravencliffe, a member of the royal family of Deugan’s main enemy in the war, she seizes on the opportunity to try to negotiate an end to the fighting. Little does she know that a new faction is about to enter the conflict, armed with a frightening magical weapon … or that it will be led by the one person on the Continent who knows the truth about Caryn’s past.

Gateways has been described as a fantasy novel that reads like historical fiction. Set in an alternate world that resembles Europe during the First World War, the novel combines geopolitics with plots, counterplots and magic, and ultimately asks the question: how far are we prepared to go for peace?

An excellent debut novel which will keep you entertained from start to finish! Gottheil's writing manages to tell an engaging tale within a reasonable page limit -- a feat which seems rarer and rarer these days as 1000+ page epic trilogies become more and more popular. Gateways kept me enthralled and left just enough to my imagination to maintain a mysterious air that kept me reading. Quality over quantity; though I would certainly read a sequel or two set in the fascinating world of the Continent, should they be written. Though I probably could have rushed through the book in an afternoon or two, I found myself savouring it, reading only a chapter or two at a time, and excitedly anticipating the next time I would curl up with a cup of tea, kindle in hand.

Though the book does exhibit some signs of a first-time-published author -- occasionally inconsistent pacing, some change in writing style and tone over the course of the book -- it does not detract from the excellence of the storytelling or the development of the characters, who are generally believable and sympathetic regardless of which side of the war they're on. The portrayals of a main character with mental health issues were also treated refreshingly -- it wasn't harped on, used to degrade or artificially boost the character's value, or written moralistically -- it was simply a part of them that occasionally was relevant to the situation.

Probably most impressive of all, I found the fantastic elements integrated smoothly with the rest of the tale. They weren't thrown in slapdash, or blatantly copied from other fantasy novels with little change (i.e. all the Tolkien-esque pulp fantasy out there). The system of energy/magic in the world was intriguing and original.

Gateways is a fantastic journey through the struggles of a very identifiable and instantly likable character. This fresh take on both the fantasy and war-time settings is inspired and full of intrigue and wonder. I would highly recommend this book for all readers whether they are fans of either, both, or neither genre.
Brian Gottheil weaves an engaging tale with many twists and turn to keep you guessing. I'm very much looking forward to his second one.
