The Six The Gateway Chronicles #1 á Ers to travel there with her Once there they learn the “arrival of the Six” was prophesied hundreds of years before and that they must expel an ancient evil from the land Will Darcy have what it takes to save Alitheia? Or will she fall prey to a deadly foe From about the very first page of this book I was completely captivated and couldn't stop reading till the end Darcy the main character is thirteen when the story begins and at first I both loved her and was frustrated with her She's shy and socially uncomfortable and yet she's embarrassed to be hanging around Samantha an overweight neightbor girl of the same age I was shy and terrified in social situations at that age and beyond and yet I have a disability and remember too well how all the kids in school were afraid or embarrassed to hang with me But Darcy pulls at your heartstrings and you can't help loving herShe and five other kids of her age meet at a family summer camp and make their way through a mysterious gateway into another world where they find their arrival has been prophesied many hundreds of years before Their arrival begins the process of overthrowing the evil ruler to restore the land to the rightful kingI fell in love with the people and characters we meet in this new land particularly the Narks a being that has two distinct selves and personalities the Day Nark and the Night Nark favorite among them is Yahto Veli This is a young adult book but it takes you an an adventure where any adult would want to go any adult would feel compelled to go I haven't felt this drawn into a book series since maybe Harry Potter and like that series The Six and it's seuel live on in my mind and heart I think about the characters and wonder what will happen to them next There will be six books in this series each book another year another meeting at camp and trip through the gateway And oh how I wish I could go too Epub µ The Six The Gateway Chronicles #1 ò K.B.
