The Garden Gate, Threshold Series #4
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for writing a review, and IÃ¢ÂÂm so glad I did! This fourth book of the Threshold series opens with angels battling demons, and Prissie Pomeroy and her family dealing with the aftermath of a very destructive storm. Prissie has a gift in that she can see the angels and demons, which her brother develops as well. I was at a disadvantage at not having read the previous books in the series, but this book was still very enjoyable. Actually, it was beautiful and uplifting to read about the unseen work of angels all around us. I recommend this book, and suggest that readers start with the beginning of the series.

IÃ¢ÂÂm not sure what I was expecting as I began this book, but I was in for a surprise. Prissie Pomeroy has a gift: she can see and recognize angels. The story is interwoven with the interactions of humans and angels (the Faithful: Guardians, Observers, Caretakers, Messengers; and the Fallen). Some of the angels are living among the community in human form, others are only present when sent for a specific task.
Christa Kinde brought the unseen world into the seen world. Hebrews states that people have entertained angels without knowing it, and this book presents one way that may occur. I loved that the angels were mighty, powerful beings instead of the feminine, pretty, winged beings that are usually portrayed.
I received a free copy of this book from Zondervan Z Street in exchange for a review. I look forward to reading more by this author.

The fourth and final book in the Threshold Series, The Garden Gate continues the story of Prissie Pomeroy. After the storm that hits Prissie's town, destruction is everywhere. While she stays at her grandparents house, Prissie struggles to say good-bye to close friends, and to get use to new changes. But through it all, God has a plan, and friendships can last a lifetime.
What a wonderful finish to the Threshold Series! I really really enjoyed book number four, and it kept me intrigued the whole time. It was cool to see how things would come to an end, and how creative the whole story line was. A great read, and one series that will make it to my "shelf of favorites".
So, ready to start reading? :)
If you want a exciting and creative fiction series to read, than pick the Threshold Series!
Overall I would rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
