- Review by Arian
This conclusion to the series doesn't offer an easy happy ending, but includes aspects of the joyful, the poignant and the resigned - an ending both more meaningful and more believable than if everything concluded positively.
As with the other books in the series, 'The Garden Gate' will be most thoroughly enjoyed by Christian tween- and teenaged readers. But an imaginative setting, engaging characterisation, and excellent writing make it worth reading for anyone who appreciates fantasy.
