Word Nerd Review: The Gateway Trilogy
by Trisha Quezada
Crazy dreams, haunted buildings, angry ghosts, and secret societies. Just a normal day in the life of Jess Ballard. She doesn’t know it yet, but she’s heir to a position in the realm of the supernatural.
The Gateway Trilogy is the story of a college student who discovers she can see and communicate with ghosts and is responsible for helping them “cross over” to the other side. It’s pretty good! It’s fun with quite a bit of humor sprinkled in throughout all 3 books, relatively suspenseful, has a couple characters you’ll love…and some you’ll hate. I very much enjoyed seeing Jess overcome her grief, embrace her new family, and develop a sense of purpose even through her initial skepticism. All the characters are well drawn and the main story line is compelling. Each successive book gets better so if you like the first one, you won’t be let down as you move through the story.
If you’re looking for a heartfelt, coming-of-age ghost story, then this series should make your “to read” list.
