The Nowhere Gate by K.T. Munson is the sequel to the Sixth Gate. It follows Elisabeth and Ki from the previous novel and continues with the events after that novel. Nanette and Ethan are getting closer every day, but the is the species issue with Nanette being human and Ethan not. Ethan has to protect Nanette with his life, but Nanette wants to help him on his fight as well. Ki has landed on a strange planet and doesn’t know how to get home, and others are telling Elisabeth to give up on him but she refuses to do so.
This book suffers from some of the same issues that the previous installment did, one of them being the POV switches. I struggled for the first 100 pages or so of this novel, trying to figure out who was who and what exactly was going on. After the first 100 pages, the story starts to truly come together and I became more invested dint he individual characters.
Most of my favorite parts of this story have to do with spoilers, so I am just going to say that the last 100 pages were absolutely action-packed and were what made me sure that I wanted to read the final installment of the series when it eventually comes out. One of my favorite non-spoiler parts of the novel was the romance between Nanette and Ethan. I loved seeing how they grew together, but they weren’t so impulsive as to put one another in danger like many other book couples that I read about. Instead, they had each other’s best interests at heart, and were truly ready to wait.
The jail scenes were also pretty intense. I have to say, K.T. Munson does not shy away from having a few more graphic action scenes. Nothing so much that I would physically cringe and want to stop reading, but enough to keep me on the edge of my seat to see what could happen next to one of the characters. I couldn’t stop reading!
Overall, this was another great installment in this series. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a new upper YA or NA fantasy novel with a nice side of romance to enjoy.
I received a copy of this novel and this is my voluntary review.
