The Book of Gates (Galenor #1) by Audrey Verreault

Magic. Romance. Adventure.

A world divided between hybrids and humans. Between black and white mages. What if everything weren't so simple?

My name is JudyAnn. I am from Galenor, a world populated by humans like you and I, as well as inferniths – half human, half-demon beings such as muses, vampires and chimeras...

Upon my 19th birthday, my world was flipped upside down. I discovered I was a Gemini. Yet, I was convinced these magicians had been extinct for a long time.

A wizard was sent to fetch me at the inn where I work. He will escort me all the way to Godwynn. He is rather charming, despite his peculiar attire.

We are to depart tomorrow, and I just learned he is also a vampire and will be my magic instructor. A vampire as a bodyguard… how does that make me feel safer?

Perfect for fans of Harry Potter and Twilight, this story with magic and romance will lead you in a world like no others…

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

A well written, thoroughly enjoyable read. Galenor has everything you'd hope for in a young adult fantasy. Danger, self -discovery, love, coming of age... the list goes on! I was enveloped in a new world that kept me guessing as to what would happen next.

At times tense, deep and shocking and others light-hearted and fun, which creates a great base for character development and relationship building. JudyAnn makes me smile, she takes things in her stride and is open to learning. She's likeable and I feel like I'd definitely pick her as a friend.

A fab weekend read that will transport you to another world!
