Reviewed by Dinorah Blackman for Readers' Favorite

If you love suspense, you’re definitely going to love Gates by G.S. Luckett. The author paints a vivid picture that offers a glimpse into how an innocent little boy becomes a hardened criminal on Death Row after witnessing the murder of his father. In prison, this man is feared and dreaded. He has a reputation for being unreasonably violent and cruel. But nobody knows what is really going on in the depth of his soul and nobody understands the pain that has tortured him his entire life. On the night of his execution, evil breaks loose and strange things begin to happen. It seems like demons take over and go on a rampage to steal, kill, and destroy. Fear takes hold of the small group that’s desperately trying to escape alive as they experience a set of supernatural events, like the dead not staying dead. They become convinced that something evil is after them, but in the midst of the chaos there is a sliver of hope as the hardened murderer risks his life to save others.

G.S. Luckett is an extremely creative writer. In this book, he turns a prison into a haunted house where many macabre secrets are hidden. Gates presents an exciting but unusual plot played out by very interesting characters who are thrown together in a desperate attempt to escape a tragedy. Luckett uses one’s natural distrust of prison guards to create a story in which nobody can be trusted; not even one’s own shadow. As the plot thickens, the bad guy is transformed into the only hope of survival and his true nature is revealed. Gates is a story that confirms appearances can be deceiving and that there’s much more going on around us than meets the eye. If you’ve ever wondered about evil and spiritual forces, you’ll enjoy this book.
