BOOK REVIEW OF ANTIQUITY'S GATE BY R.F. HURTEAU


TITLE: ANTIQUITY’S GATE: THREE DAYS TILL DAWN

AUTHOR: R.F. HURTEAU

COVER: A+

BLURB:

Antiquity’s Gate forced two realities to collide—what followed tore one of them apart.

Now those who remain coexist beneath the shelter of a domed Antarctic city, held together by a tenuous peace and an increasingly dystopian hierarchy. Any hope of one day leaving the confines of Sanctuary is little more than a fading ember.

A mid-level systems operator, Ripley does his best to stay out of trouble. His best friend Felix, an irreverent half-breed shunned by society, can’t seem to do the same. When Felix’s family is targeted by an unjust law, there’s nowhere to run. The city of Sanctuary had once been a safe haven— now it has become a cage.

Ripley’s desperate attempt to help his friends escape tragedy uncovers a conspiracy that envelops the last refuge of mankind in an ever-tightening net.

The people of Sanctuary have never seen a sunrise.

If Ripley and Felix aren’t prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice, none of them ever will.

REVIEW:
For months, I saw R.F. Hurteau's cover on Twitter. I received a copy of Antiquity's Gate. And, I'm glad that I read this novel. It's been a while since I've read a novel that completely blew my mind. This novel had everything: Elves, magic, multidimensional interactions, mystery, intrigue. All throughout the story, I never knew how it was going to go. I loved the magic in it. The dark tone was fabulous!!! I really loved the concept of the Antiquity's Gate. Such a great, new idea.
Who doesn't like elves as well?
R.F. Hurteau's writing was very well done. Fully engaging. Well put together. Inspiring. I can't wait to read book 2!
