GUARDIANS of the GATEWAYS

A WONDERFUL SUPERNATURAL FANTASY:
Seraphympire (Guardians of the Gateways) by author Renee Spyrou is a wonderful supernatural fantasy tale about “Makayla” a Seraphympire, who must find the Trinian Globe and stop a deadly virus wiping out humanity. I have been a fan of vampires since my teens so I may be a bit bias :) The reader quickly becoming engulfed in the world the author seamlessly creates for her readers. Quite frankly, Renee simply amazes me with the amount of effort she puts into this book. Seraphympire is a story combining many incredible elements, including horror, desire, suspense, fantasy and a deep dark intensity that will leave the reader engrossed and reading long into the night. The moment I finished the story and read the final word, I went on-line to get info on the next installment in the Guardians of the Gateways series. So I’m looking forward to “The Keeper of the Key” :D

DON’T LET THE TITLE FOOL YOU:
Super unnatural beneath the surface darkness comes vividly to life. The title kind of throws you off until you read the book. Great characters, devious plot that twists and turns all over the book. One moment you are on the left path and suddenly notice you’re going right – right into a nightmare waiting and then comes the surprises. I thoroughly enjoyed the read and look forward to more from this author. You won’t be disappointed. When you believe the book is starting out slow you quickly realize you’re on page 30 or 40 and don’t want to put it down. The dark side is always fun, as are plots to save the world and stop something beyond belief from happening. This book has a touch of it all and will please the most picky reader. Check it out.

EPIC LARGER-THAN-LIFE PARANORMAL TALE.
I enjoyed ‘SERAPHYMPIRE: Guardians of the Gateways’ for its large cast of diverse richly-textured characters, their shifting loyalties, and the epic-level of violent emotions at play. It definitely works as Paranormal Fantasy Romance, a vampire tale with a difference. Kayla/Makayla makes a complex, sympathetic, and visceral double heroine. Alexander, Zack, Reece, and the tangibly evil Zobiana all combine to create an above average vampire tale. Overall the characters are both believable and larger-than-life, a nice balance. The plot would benefit from a tighter focus, perhaps set within a 3-Act frame. Even so, it was always clear what each character wanted, why, and the decisions and actions they each take in trying to reach their goals. So the characters’ roles within the plot works fine. The climax in Act 3 is especially good, and succeeds in bringing Makayla’s story to a satisfying, provisional, and resounding close.

It’s about vampires and seraphim both fighting to be the ruler of the planet Evron. I thought it was a good book.
LOTS OF ACTION, VIOLENCE & HORROR:
Enjoyed this overall. There was lots going on with this book – lots of subplots and characters and world building – but since it’s a series I hope that these will get resolved in the next couple of books. This was an interesting take on the vampire/angel genre. Lots of action violence and horror.

COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN:
I’m not really into Vampire stories but my husband brought this book for me. I hesitantly started and could not put it down. Great plots, romance and fantasy themes I thoroughly enjoyed it. Looking forward to book No 2.
