Gateway by David C. Cassidy is aptly entered in the horror category, a story for fans of tales that make them feel the creepiness as if it is a living thing crawling on their skin. Jared Cole is a man who has a lot anyone would want, including fame and success. But this talented, award-winning novelist has a secret, one he’s kept to himself for a long time — he can see souls. He has just returned to his idyllic hometown of Torch Falls, Montana, after seven years of hard work in New York, when he unwittingly opens a gateway to the soul of an epileptic child, and the nightmare begins. In so doing, he has unleashed an evil that will transform the peaceful townspeople into merciless killers. Will he be able to close this window before the entire town becomes a desolate waste?
David C. Cassidy’s Gateway is a well-crafted horror story featuring compelling characters and a gripping plot; the reader will feel like the action is unfolding before their gaze. The writing is excellent and I enjoyed how the author captures the setting in the descriptive prose. This story reads like a horror movie, thanks to the author’s gift for plot and character. The conflict is introduced right off the bat and the reader is riveted to the story, each page well written to push the reader onto the next gripping page. This is one of those books you don’t want to start reading at nightfall, because its spell is irresistible. I read it through the wee hours of the morning, engrossed in the beauty of the narrative and fascinated by its characters.
