Goodreads Summary

    This book begins where the first book ended, picking up in a big way.  In my opinion, The Gates is better than the first book.  Camille and Gavin’s love is tested and there are some steamier scenes.  Wade developed every character; I really love that she did this because she created such great characters.  The plot twists and turns were predictable at times, but truly surprised me at others.  I had a hard time putting this book down and probably stayed up too late reading almost every night.  Most importantly, for me, this book is not a typical vampire story.  Twilight-like books have flooded the literary market in some respects, but thankfully, The Gates is not one of these books.  Some aspects from Twilight do appear in this novel, but Wade navigates them in a unique style.  Camille is no Bella and Gavin is not Edward.  This book would most probably be most enjoyed by a female, young adult audience.  It would be a good book for a club because it is so fun to read and discuss. 

Five stars!
