Publisher's Summary

The Death Gate is down and Izzy Sage is at a crossroads. What will happen when they throw the switch and bring it back? She’s all atwitter on the big day...and then things only get more twisted when Zoe Lake-Winters, a powerful mage, walks through the door with her husband and daughter in tow.

Zoe is an enigma, one Izzy is drawn to, but before they can get to know one another a revenant crosses the newly-opened gate and a magical explosion from Zoe’s daughter Sami causes more mayhem...and an additional coverup.

Two very different worlds are colliding, and Izzy and Zoe are at the center of it. The mystery of the other side is dark and deep and Zoe finds she’s intrigued...even if her methods are a bit extreme for the Grimlocks.

There’s a conspiracy afoot, and it’s anybody’s guess who at the reaper council has been compromised. Sheer grit and determination will bring a mage and a bruja together, but it’s loyalty that will ultimately guide them.

It seems someone is erecting gates in various locations around the city, but why? What do they hope to accomplish? Is a full-scale revenant attack imminent? Only time will tell, and when the battle comes, two powerful beings will have to come together to protect what they love most.

Hold on to your hexes, because the magical union you’ve been waiting for is finally here...and it’s going to be a very snarky affair.

I didn't see that coming!

Zoe and crew get introduced to Izzy and the Grimlocks. Baddies show up, mysteries are solved, and surprise information is revealed. Now I'm ready to find out what is true and what isn't in the next one!

Great book hard to put down

Amanda M Lee is a new all time favorite author. She has a way of drawing you into a book and getting your feeling involved. I can't wait to read the next one in this series. I love the Grimlock's and all of the other characters. I love how she gets other characters from other series into the mix. I have never laughed and cried reading a book as I have reading hers books. The only other Authors that have manged to do that are Nora Roberts, JD Robb, Catherine Coulter, and Richard H. Stephens. Would love to find more that can do that.

Amanda M. Lee is fantastic

I am a huge fan of this author. Unfortunately, the narration made it almost impossible to listen; aside from a couple of really questionable choices for some of the characters' voices, the constant mispronunciation of Aisling's name and the word "queried" was grating.

💞💞💞

the continuing story of Izzy Sage is sensationally compelling and impressive, but! any time Zoe Lake (Lake-Winters!) is added into the mix, iiim Happy!! i Love Zoe, Aric and Sami! i knooow the haters are out there n they’re gonna hate, but really? theyyy can dog it!!
ppl say Zoe comes in and takes over wherever she goes, but the opposite is true. she always helps our main heroine see the truth and strength in herself. she helps them overcome and climb over their internal mountains. idc What ppl say, Zoe is a hero in my book, and Izzy? well, she’s not only a force to be reckoned with, but she. is. awesome 😎

Everything You Know Is Wrong

Down is up and up is down in Lee’s latest Death Gate Thriller. Izzy thought that her parents were killed years ago, during a gate accident, but were they? Or did something more terrible happen to them? Like the Go Go’s: my lips are sealed. Zoe Lake Winters, and family, make a guest appearance in what has to be the best book in the series so far! 10 jars of pickled beets, and I normally only go five! 👏👏👏👏👏

Reapers meet Mage

By far the greatest combination of stories. Izzy and Zoe are powerhouses together. Toss in husbands, boyfriends, a sassy teenager and you have a combination that would make a chocolate fountain bar look boring. Well done!
