Half-breed banshee, Seven, likes her life. She leads souls safely to Death and she has the planet’s most awesome dad and little brother. But a cryptic message from Atlantis asking for her help changes all that. And then there’s Death, who has decided it’s time to take her brother’s soul. Now she’s racing across the world, trying to stay one step ahead of Death.
Unfortunately, getting to Atlantis from Ireland isn’t easy, and there are evil minions determined to keep her away every time she turns around. But fighting for their lives teaches Seven one important lesson – she isn’t human, and she isn’t a banshee. She has to be both if she wants to save her brother and make it back home alive.
I purchased this book quite awhile ago, based purely on the author’s name. And because I was already committed to reading so many other books, it sat on my Kindle shelf. As soon as I picked it up and started reading, however, it was impossible to put down!
I am a sucker for anything about Atlantis, so of course, I was eager to see where Wendy took this story. And it never disappointed. Of all the characters, my favorite ended up being tied between Akie the demon and Seven’s little brother, Haran.
I loved the sense of adventure as the characters travelled from one exciting place to the next . . . the pyramids, Rio, a volcano! And, of course, Atlantis! I loved it all! Now I am itching to read the next book in the series and see where it all leads!
Check Banshee at the Gate out on Goodreads or buy it on Amazon, if it sounds like something you’re interested! It’s a bit younger of a read, YA bordering on Middle Grade, but that didn’t bother me. The story is still adult enough to hold your attention!
Happy Review Tuesday!
