Plagued by doubts about her future, Darcy Pennington must begin to unravel the mysteries of her oracle if she is to save Alitheia and reconcile her relationship with Tellius, the king she is intended to marry.
The Gateway Chronicles continues to get better with every new installment! I can easily say this is the best one I have read thus far. My favorite thing about this series is the way you can actually see the characters grow in each new book. This is book 4 and you see a much more mature side of Darcy and the other characters as they move from teenage to a grown state of mind. Tellius has grown quite a lot yet at times we see that he might not be as mature when it comes to his feelings about Darcy as he should be. I really can't wait to see where Tellius and Darcy end up as a couple and how everything between them will connect with the prophecy. The other characters have all changed in some way and it interesting to see new relationships begin to form. More sense is made of the prophecy in this novel although more questions about it are also raised. There is quite a bit of unexpected tragedy in this novel but also some new discoveries as well. The ending stops on a shocking revelation which will definitely have you excited to get your hands on the next novel in this series. If you haven't read any of these books then I recommend that you start with The Six and continue from there. I definitely recommend The Gateway Chronicles to those who love fantasy novels filled with adventure, magic, and excitement.
