    I will begin by saying that I had not read the three other books in the series before I started this one, and due to that I found this very hard to enjoy or get into, with that being said I ll do my best to do a review I must admit I just could not get into the story or find myself relating to Prissie and her set of angels, that only she and her brother can see This may have been different had I read the other three or at least one of the other books but as it was I didn t and so going on what I will begin by saying that I had not read the three other books in the series before I started this one, and due to that I found this very hard to enjoy or get into, with that being said I ll do my best to do a review I must admit I just could not get into the story or find myself relating to Prissie and her set of angels, that only she and her brother can see This may have been different had I read the other three or at least one of the other books but as it was I didn t and so going on what I read I found the half of the book I read boring and I was completely lost.I m sure that this author is great, so nothing against her, and if I had known this was book 4 I would not have requested to review it, so I m guilty as well I think this would be a good series for an older teen as that is what the series is geared for but as an adult woman I just couldn t finish this although my oldest daughter may be interested if she starts with book 1 and works her way through the series as it s got a sci fi theme to it with the angels and demons and spiritual warfare but overall I just couldn t get into it as I had wanted I was given an ARC of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review, no other compensation was given

    Copy was given by the publisher in exchange of an honest review One of the things that I realized when I received this book is that it was the forth book in the series and I have not read the first three I was very confused at first and couldn t get into the story as much because I didn t have very good background coming into it Once I got somewhat of a background and got caught up with the events, the rest of the book wasn t much satisfying for me The concept itself was intriguing since PCopy was given by the publisher in exchange of an honest review One of the things that I realized when I received this book is that it was the forth book in the series and I have not read the first three I was very confused at first and couldn t get into the story as much because I didn t have very good background coming into it Once I got somewhat of a background and got caught up with the events, the rest of the book wasn t much satisfying for me The concept itself was intriguing since Prissie could see angels but her faith still struggled It was interesting to see the process of her faith grow but I was disappointed and pretty interrupted by the ending of the book Writing itself was unique and interesting and I m sure that if I read the first three books, it would makesense to me but either way, this book wasn t completely for me

    It wasn t supposed to be like this The angelic battle Prissie alone could see tore up her bedroom, her family s orchard, and her father s bakery It destroyed much of what she treasured about her home and to make matters even worse, although Ephron was finally rescued, her own Guardian, Tamaes, was captured How can she move forward How can she trust But Prissie isn t facing anything alone This was just the perfect cap to an already amazing series Not much worked out how I expected, b It wasn t supposed to be like this The angelic battle Prissie alone could see tore up her bedroom, her family s orchard, and her father s bakery It destroyed much of what she treasured about her home and to make matters even worse, although Ephron was finally rescued, her own Guardian, Tamaes, was captured How can she move forward How can she trust But Prissie isn t facing anything alone This was just the perfect cap to an already amazing series Not much worked out how I expected, but there were plenty of surprises and laughs along the way Beau, Prissie s brother, is now in on the secret at least some of it I thought this would be a bigger thing, was surprised it wasn t, and then realized that fits perfectly with the kind of story this has always been Angels are here It isn t some big flashy fire and lightning, prophecies from heaven event, but something that fits so well into the ordinary everyday that it s hard to draw a line between the natural and the supernatural.That s not to say there aren t battles aplenty Tamaes is suffering Adin is scheming More is happening in heaven and on earth than Prissie has eyes to see Beau said Running isnot my giftgimme books, Lordkeyboardcomfy chairand an angel on my fridge Any day of the week But the heart of this book is the relationships I was very surprised at how things ended up with Prissie s former friendsthey all moved on Separately The same way they ve been drifting apart for the last three books Even though Prissie could wish it were otherwise, no miraculous change of heart occurs, and the rift between them by now feels rather final Perhaps one day it will turn around again, but that was not this book.In their place, she has a growing friendship despite her best efforts, and because of his with Ransom Ransom feels like the real hero of these stories, to me He s been far better to her than she deserves, and his persistence finally bears fruit There it was Prissie dared to ask, Are you lonely Nope I ve got friends Ransom took the topmost box of leftovers from the stack Prissie carried and peeked under the lid There s still an opening if you re interested And of course, Ransom provides so many laughs They say this is a dream, and I ll forget everything in the morning Ransom edged closer to her Never had a dream that came with a disclaimer before Should I be worried What happens after this had me laughing until I cried Ransom decides to go for broke because he won t remember any of it anyway, so why should he care And I grew to like Marcusandover the series, but here he s just perfect I love how his character develops from barely talking tough guy that Prissie writes off as bad news to someone she trusts with her life This round, I m demoted to hand holder Without a trace of irritation, he admitted, There s a decent chance I ll be hiding behind you But it sounds better to say I ve got your back I m so glad we finally get to see Ephron, and that he s finally in a place where he can recover I liked Prissie s conflicted emotions around him It was her prayer that helped set him free, and it was a prayer she put off making for a long time Yet how the angels deal with the situation and how Prissie deals with it are totally different She has a lot of trouble with him because of her own guilt, and because she s not comfortable being confronted with real suffering and its aftermath.And Koji has been a faithful friend, but as the year turns, his time with her family is coming to an end The anticipation of loss is something both of them have a hard time bearing I really liked how that played out too.One final quote, because this is totally me too and made me laugh Which do you think a whole bagful of cheap chocolate, or a little box of the good stuff Prissie shook her head Depends on if you re asking me or Neil I prefer quality over quantity Don t underestimate Neil He just prefers quality in quantity All in all, these are delightful books I read this one twice in quick succession because I happened to discover a couple of free short stories on the author s website, and a few of them give so much context to certain characters that I just had to read this again to catch some of the deeper implications of certain scenes Highly, highly recommended.See my reviews andat

    When I first learned about the Threshold Series by Christa Kinde, I knew that I wanted to read it The appeal for me was two fold First, I love the concept of angels among us Second, I loved the idea of a young heroine learning about and growing through faith experiences So, when I was given the opportunity to review The Garden Gate, I jumped at the chance.The Garden Gate, in my opinion, was a mixture of the fantastical, the unbelievable, the poetic, and the remarkable It was a touching bo When I first learned about the Threshold Series by Christa Kinde, I knew that I wanted to read it The appeal for me was two fold First, I love the concept of angels among us Second, I loved the idea of a young heroine learning about and growing through faith experiences So, when I was given the opportunity to review The Garden Gate, I jumped at the chance.The Garden Gate, in my opinion, was a mixture of the fantastical, the unbelievable, the poetic, and the remarkable It was a touching book that easily evoked compassion, inspired loyalty, and encouraged zeal Well written and comprehensive with regard to details, Kinde s story delivered a positive message about faith, family, and friendship.Although the beginning of this book was a bit of a challenge for me likely because I started with book four versus book one , I still found myself drawn in I wanted to find out about the characters,about the conflict,about the what s next I was captivated, to say the least, by the storyline It was peculiar and astonishing in the best of ways.Any book that can create a hunger to know , like this book did, is a good book It will cause you to both question and consider In the end, it will make you appreciate God and His plans for your life, as well as your own faith and walk.Favorite Quotes Do you ever wonder what God s up to Being Faithful isn t just about doing what you re told and going where you re Sent It s just as much about having faith in the One who s always Faithful Your mercy is lovelier than any crown Did you know the Bible says to be kind to strangers because they might actually be angels Never forget that we are God s servants, the same as you If we do a thing, it s at His prompting Shame is as necessary as tears Born from the knowledge of good and evil, it can guide you to the place where forgiveness waits Honor what is good Follow what is right Seek what is yours Hold what is true And when your Sending comes, go Fear not Favorite Chapters The Family Tree, The First Gate, The Good Fight, The Angel s Friend Rating 5 5Recommend YesBookshelf Worthy YesFaith Message Spiritual Growth Lesson YesAction Drama Suspense YesContent Clean, MatureBonus Material Discussion QuestionsSpecial Comment I must say that this is not necessarily the type of book that you can just pick up and go with In other words, it is not a clear stand alone Because it is part of a unique series, you would do better to start with book one and then work your way through to book four I believe that by doing this, it will eliminate any undue confusion and decrease any untimely frustrations.A complimentary copy of this title was made available by the publisher Zondervan Zonderkidz in exchange for an honest review The words I have expressed are my own I was neither required nor expected to submit a positive critique

    The Garden Gate is the first book I have read by this author When I chose this book to read in exchange for an honest review, I did not realize it was the 4th book in a series I also didn t realize it was listed as children YA book either I should payattention when choosing a book to read I usually do.The cover of the book is pretty When I opened the book and started to read, I was totally lost The book starts with 2 angels battling in the snow One angel is a fallen angel, and the The Garden Gate is the first book I have read by this author When I chose this book to read in exchange for an honest review, I did not realize it was the 4th book in a series I also didn t realize it was listed as children YA book either I should payattention when choosing a book to read I usually do.The cover of the book is pretty When I opened the book and started to read, I was totally lost The book starts with 2 angels battling in the snow One angel is a fallen angel, and the others name is Abner who is a good angel After the battle Prissie Beau Prissie s brother are helping the angel, because he is bleeding, and another angel steps into help The next thing I know the angel s name is Milo, and he is a Messenger angel He also happens to be the mailman By the time the first chapter ends, I had wrote down 13 different names I was lost That was to many for a first chapter.I do not usually start to read a book and then put it down, and not finish it I am sad to say that I read 3 chapters of this book, and that is it I had to put it down, it did not hold my interest, and like I said earlier I was lost In the description of the book it made me think that Prissie was in some kind of trouble, and her brother discovers her secret and helps her out It also made me believe that there was one angel that lived in the refrigerator So I thought maybe the angel was supposed to be a guardian angel for Prissie I will not ever assume again I will go findinformation on the book first.I am giving the book 3 stars, because from the little that I read the author writes well I could envision the opening battle in my mind Maybe if I had read the other books in the series I may have liked them, and been able to finish this one I enjoy reading some paranormal books, but this one seem to border on fantasy I received a copy of this book from Book Look Bloggers, on behalf of the publisher in exchange for my honest review
