The Gateway to Fourline by Pam Brondos is the first installment of a three part series. It delves into the world of Natalie Barnes, a college student trying to do what’s right for her family’s farming business while struggling to maintain her good college standing. Natalie finds a job in a costume shop to pay for her college tuition, yet one day, she enters a room that is off-limits. Curiosity leads Natalie into a world filled with powerful women and an evil lord, with plenty of unanswered questions. Before she knows it, Natalie gets drawn into the world of Fourline and fights for a cause that grows deep into her heart. She develops an affinity toward a blighted race, and this threatens her well-being, as well as ones who are closest to her while on her journey.
Although it took me a while to finish this book, I found Gateway to Fourline to be well paced. It left me wondering what would happen next right until the very end. I look forward to learning about what will happen to Natalie and the others in Fourline as I take on the next book in this world fairly soon.
