The Gateway Discoveries Series by Kate de Jesus

What do you do when reality parts way with sanity?  When the monsters that chase you are

better than the fate that awaits you?

Dark Fate Falling (The Gateway Discoveries Volume 1)

Nick, Remedy, Simon and Owen are ready for adventure when they are invited to accompany their scientist fathers on a field expedition that will take them near the famed Bermuda Triangle.  But their excitement quickly turns to terror when their plane falls from the sky in a freak storm, and they find themselves alone on a strange and beautiful island.  Fearing the worst for their missing parents, the four friends set out to find them by trying to decipher the reasons behind this ill fated trip.  But when Nick and Simon are attacked by a strange beast, and Remedy almost becomes lunch for a flock of bizarre birds, they quickly learn all is not as it seems on this tiny piece of paradise, and soon they are running for their lives toward an even darker fate…


The Brutal Ones (The Gateway Discoveries Volume 2)

The journey continues, but will they survive it?

Fate has taken a dark twist for Nick, Owen, Simon and Remedy.  Drawn unwillingly into a world they don’t understand, Simon and Remedy find themselves at the center of an age old conflict between The People of Sentarin and their cruel captors, The Brutal Ones.  They want to return home; but each path they chose seems to lead them farther into the pitfalls and violence The People of Sentarin must live with every day.  Soon their only goal is to stay alive…

Meanwhile, Nick and Owen have escaped the deadly island, only to convince their parents to return with them to find Simon and Remedy.  Confident that he has adults to help him this time, Nick’s new feelings of security are the first casualty when the group enters the gateway and meets with far worse things than even his anxious mind could have dreamed up.  The groups rescue mission deteriorates into all out flight for their own survival…

Dark Fate Falling

'An adventurous book full of mystery and wonder. I love the descriptions the author uses to draw in the reader. As a former elementary school PTA president I get asked to recommend books to students. I will definitely use this book as an example of fun, imaginative reading. I am looking forward to the next book and continious learning about new worlds.'
