Product Description

Product Description

According to the Bible, God created the world in seven days, but what if the beginning happened before Humankind documented it for posterity?

Humans didn’t see everything clearly, because they didn’t understand. They turned away in fear, forgot the beings that had come to Earth and, over time, the Seraphim became nothing but a legend, a bedtime story. Corruption and greed, bred from hatred and evil, spread across the face of the earth as Humans evolved and developed. It was in this filth, and amongst the seven deadly sins, that Tabitha Morgan was born and kept alive, hidden in plain sight from the darkness.

For seventeen years, Tabitha thrived under her grandmother’s guardianship, living a normal life and not knowing the truth about her heritage or the roots from which she came.

That all changes the day a handsome stranger named Nathan walks into her life. Will the ancient secrets he holds be enough to earn her trust? Is it the Light, or does Darkness await them beyond The Northern Gate?

HASH(0xa175c060) out of 5 stars One of the BEST books I've ever read July 20 2014
By LilyGreenEyes - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Original review posted on Lily Loves Indie as part of a blog tour and an ARC copy was received -

I said it to start this review, but seriously, it needs saying again, this is quite simply, one of THE best books I have read this year (and that statement packs a punch given there are only 3 days left in this year!) and it really isn’t an overstatement, promise! I’ll have to ask you to bear with me as I will probably waffle slightly as I gush with merriment at how wonderful this book is, and how fantastic this author is at drawing you into the tale.

A story of love, strange worlds and power struggles between good and evil. Tabitha is born into a struggle and a new world that has been hidden from her for her whole life, just so she can be kept safe. Nathan is her protector, his love for her pure and totally sincere. The other characters are double agents, guardians of Tabitha, there to ensure safe passage to the Northern Gate and her home land, when the time comes.

So, having started off with how great I found this book, I suppose I really should elaborate further on my 5 star rating! Firstly, one of the characters, Nyleh/Helen, is portrayed as having dementia, or other similar memory trouble. Now, this might seem like a really tiny thing to pick up on, but bear with me on this, it was fantastically written. I know several individuals who have suffered with these kinds of problems and Clarke had it spot on throughout. The ‘good days’ and ‘bad days’, the confusion, the way it tires those closest to them more than the individual suffering. It was all perfect, and that made me understand and engage so much more in the book because it was clear it was well thought of and accurate. Like I said, it’s a teeny tiny thing, but to me, having experienced this first hand in my own life, a huge thing that lots of authors mess up. Huge high five to Clarke for doing it right and doing it justice.

Another amazing thing about this book is how mysterious it is throughout. Usually, an author hints at mystery and then gives in halfway through, but Clarke holds the suspense from the first page to the last, never letting the reader know more than what is absolutely necessary for the part of the story. This makes it incredibly addictive and compulsive reading as you literally cannot put the book down at any point. It’s really phenomenally paced and just excellent. I’m sort of at a loss on how to express it, but the mystery, it’s just amazing. You know little more than Tabitha, so it really helps you engage and invest emotionally in the characters as you feel in the same boat, as it were. It’s very skillfully done and I doff my hat to Clarke as I know it can’t have been easy!

Something else I truly adored in this book is the beautiful development of the romance and intimacy between Tabitha and Nathan. It’s so intricately and delicately shown to us that at times it almost felt like we shouldn’t be seeing it because it’s too private a union. At times, when they were sharing thoughts and feelings, I felt a little awkward for being party to it, which is strange as I’m sure that wasn’t the intention, but I was just overwhelmed by their love for each other. I’m not a soppy person, as much as I like a happy ending and a bit of romance, but I adored their trueness and devotion to each other, despite their recently new relationship. It was just wonderful, and so well done that it’s left me speechless once again!

In addition, the characters deserve a mention. I’ll keep this short, as I alluded to it earlier on, but the characters are a wonderful bunch. Nathan and Tabitha are excellent leading characters, both strong in their own ways, and they lead a wonderful ensemble of other characters who are each unique and add something to the story. Sarah, Lewis and Lucy are all gradually introduced, allowing us as readers to become used to them, similar to how Tabitha does, in small stages. This makes it much more easy to understand them and their motives, and as such, makes the story that much more interesting from all angles.

As if all this wasn’t enough, the ending to this book is an absolute corker! Talk about cliff hanger! Even with the little extra snippet at the end, there’s still not enough to leave you satisfied. The twist, the sudden end, it’s all fantastically done and leaves you really wanting, well, actually more like needing more of this story. It’s rare a story grips me so hard and so completely but Clarke has got me good and I will honestly be counting down the days to the release of the sequel.

So, to conclude, I cannot recommend this book highly enough. The whole premise and storyline is incredibly well thought out and developed, so subtly alluded to from the first page that you truly believe this other world is out there and you’ve just been walking around with your eyes wide shut. It feels familiar and known, it’s a great feeling. The whole story is engaging, enticing, incredibly well written and a delight from start to finish. So, only thing left to do is twiddle my thumbs and wait patiently for the next in the series….

HASH(0xa175c0b4) out of 5 stars Loved it! Aug. 16 2015
By Jade! - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I was quiet excited about going into this book. I've been reading the same kind of books lately and wanted a change.
This book was a fantastic change for me. I loved every second of it.
The characters are well developed and I connected with them straight away. Even the secondary characters are easy to connect with and there's quite a few of them.
The storyline was gripping and I wanted to keep reading to find out what happened.

Tabitha is a normal teenage girl, she loves music, dance and to hang out with her friends. Accept lately she hasn't been doing that a lot. She lives with her Nana, but she has grown sick, so now Tabitha only goes out when needed.
But one day she meets Nathan. She feels she needs to keep her distance but at the same time, she's attracted to him. She feels this pull towards him that she can't explain, but he can!
It was a really gripping story, it pulled me in from the start, and after finishing it, I am left hanging, wanting more. I'm not sure when the next book is out. I hope soon!

HASH(0xa175c4ec) out of 5 stars Can't wait for next book Dec 13 2013
By T London - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I found myself not wanting to put this book down! To me it was a very fast read and highly enjoyable. The way that she developed the main characters was really good. There was a mixture of emotions, ranging from happy to sad.

Nathan one of the characters is a very mysterious man. He is trying to fulfill destiny and complete the path that fate has laid out for him. He cant do that without the help of Tabitha. Tabitha is his soul mate, his better half. They are destined to be together from the beginning of time. They embark on a trip full of ups, downs and excitement. The end of the book will leave you wanting more. I personally can't wait for the next book in the series to come out!
HASH(0xa175c8ac) out of 5 stars J.C. Clarke was MEANT to write this book! Aug. 22 2015
By Cynthia Bloggs - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I am completely in love with this book! The cover is what truly caught me....I love the tree and the's just incredible. This is the third book I read by J.C. Clarke and I absolutely loved it. I mean...I loved it enough to go stalk the author for the next book, so that says something, right?

The Northern Gate is the story of Tabitha getting her wings. She's an ordinary girl living in an ordinary village....or so she thinks. As her Nana is passing from one world to the next, Tabitha finds herself enthralled by the strange but HOT man that keeps turning up.

Natanael has been charged with Tabitha's protection. As her soul's mate, he knows more than he can tell her about the dark forces swirling down on them.

The characters are refreshing in their honesty - this isn't one of those novels where they meet and fall passionately in love and it's happily ever after. Tabitha definitely makes Natanael work for it. She's an independent, equal and wants everyone to know it.

This book is written in an incredibly beautiful style and I honestly believe that J.C. Clarke was MEANT to write this style. It's absolutely wonderful. I like the mythology that is weaved in and the magic isn't so over the top that it is unbelievable. I'm so excited for the next book!

This was a well written story. It held my attention from beginning to end. When I say that, I mean it had me wanting to follow the Nathan and Tabitha's journey.
Tabitha is just a teenager going through life one day at a time. All the while she is worrying about her grandmother and looking for a happiness, which she finds through dancing. A stranger walks into her life though and could change everything. Can Tabitha handle everyrhing in her life?
Nathan us a guy who is only looking after a girl because of a promise he made. The girl knows nothing about his promise or him. Can he find a way to make things work in his favor?
