Book 2 in the "Guardians of the Sixth Gate" series!
The entire town of Burbrook, Colorado is still reeling from the night of the BHS homecoming dance. Tori and her circle of guardians may be safe from the ferryman, but they know that the Shadow Mistress won’t rest for long. After the circle gains a surprising new member they feel safer than ever, but things quickly take a turn. Tori discovers that there are more strange things about her abilities than they first thought and while this makes hunting demons easier, her newfound talents are far from comforting.
First, there are the voices. Then, her dreams become reality and she’s stalked by a classmate she knows to be dead. Tori decides to keep it all from the circle. The last thing she needs is Jamie’s worry, especially after what happened at homecoming. The tension between them only worsens after the sudden appearance of an old friend, further separating Tori from Jamie and leading her to keep more secrets. She must decide between coming clean and strengthening her entire circle against the Shadow Mistress or staying quiet to keep fate at bay.
Guardians of the Sixth Gate. Complete the circle. Find your match.
Victoria “Tori” Johnson wants senior year to be different. Tired of being the straight-laced brainiac living in the shadow of her best friend, she agrees to go to her first high school party where she gets in an accident that should’ve killed her. Instead, she wakes up to discover that boring Burbrook isn’t as quiet as it seems.
Jamie Quinn, and his mysterious sister, Izzy, introduce her to their circle of guardians and an underground world where supernatural abilities and dark creatures run rampant. Without a complete circle of guardians, the trio are left to destroy the evil that finds its way through the gate.
As if fighting demons wasn’t hard enough, the Ferryman from the Shadowlands launches a hunt for Tori’s blood. The trio search for ways to protect her and the reason why her blood is so important. Tori worries that there may be more to Jamie Quinn than leather jackets and straight-A’s. He might be her match. A match would strengthen their circle and render them both mortal, but it would come at a devastating price. Is it possible to outrun fate or will resisting destroy any chance they have of sealing the gate for good?
Kenna Riley is Aldierian, but no one but her adoptive father knows and no one else can. All she wants is to escape poverty in her village. All that changes when her identity is outed, she’s branded a terrorist, and is sentenced to death in the arena.

Together they do something no one else has, escape the arena and learn a Gallaterran secret along the way. In their search for help from the Aldierians, they find adventure and opportunity that they never thought they’d be allowed. It makes their mission even more dangerous. Despite fighting together, they both must decide what is worth sacrificing alone.
