??? Fun, Quick Series Opener - Hack Dandy, 4 Star Review
"The Brit, a death row inmate, escapes his electric-chair execution thanks to a major thunderstorm that knocks out the power at his island-prison. The Pastor, a quasi-friend on the inside, helps him out of the chair and they seem to be the only prisoners around. The Brit has a plan to escape, which is hindered as he faces off against prisoners and inmates that are hell-bent on capturing him by the commands of the Courier.
This was a fun read and reminded me of The Rock (1996), in that I envisioned Alcatraz and Sean Connery. But no, there are no missiles or scientists-turned-hero. There is one specific scene that ends the action-packed and brutal man-against-the-odds thriller, and flips the switch on a paranormal sci-fi tale. Don?t worry; there is still brutal action throughout.
To tell more would risk entry into the spoiler-zone. This is the first I?ve heard of G.S. Luckett. The writing and editing are quite good and the story flows well from scene to scene. The book has a conclusion (as it should) and can stand alone as a full story.
However, this is the intro to a set/series. A short read . Although this is subtitled as ?Can a condemned soul become God?s weapon?, it isn?t a Christian or preachy book."
??? Five Star Review from Readers' Favorite - Dinorah Blackman
"If you love suspense, you're definitely going to love Gates by G.S. Luckett....G.S. Luckett is an extremely creative writer. In this book, he turns a prison into a haunted house where many macabre secrets are hidden. Gates presents an exciting but unusual plot played out by very interesting characters who are thrown together in a desperate attempt to escape a tragedy....If you've ever wondered about evil and spiritual forces, you'll enjoy this book."
??? Fantastic Read! - mizztara71, 5 Star Review
"I read this story in one sitting. The action is non-stop. The scenes are very detailed and vivid. The characters are very well fleshed out. The author did a wonderful job of humanizing "The Brit" and telling his back story. I can see why he was chosen as a Reaper. I would recommend Gates and look forward to reading the next book in the series."
??? The Reaper Book #1
This is the first installment of a series where we find out how, The Reaper, is chosen and that he does more than shepherd lost souls. He is a demon slayer, preventing Hell's war with Heaven from spilling over into our world.
??? Some of God's instruments are tarnished.
