Enemy Through The Gates (Book 1) By: D.T. Dyllin



Hello! 
I am very lucky to be apart of another book tour, this time hosted by Goddess Fish Promotions. The book is called Enemy Through The Gates (Book 1) By: D.T. Dyllin and this is her Debut novel. The tour is still going on now and here is the link for you to check out other blogs concerning this fabulous book! 

Now, in addition to my Review, I will also include an excerpt, to catch your interest, and I hope you will purchase a copy of this wonderful story. Also, I have word that there will be a GIVEAWAY, provided by the Author. She will be rewarding a $15 gift card to one random commenter during this tour and to the host with the most comments, so I encourage you to write a comment here... you never know, you might win! But you don’t have that chance unless you comment so please do! : )


Review:
It was unbelievable! Let me say that first. I started yesterday afternoon, and finished it just this morning. I literally  could not put it down!! The story starts out with Paige Joplin Stone aka P.J. She seems like a normal 18 year old, who is very much interested in boys, and really just wants to find a good boyfriend. Within a couple days her oh so called boring life takes a turn, a really good turn, with her best friend, Bryn O’Bannon. They have known each other and have been best friends since they were five. They know each other so well, but at their friend’s party, they get to know much more about each other, and that turns into....love :)  After this new realization of their strong and passionate love for one another, they are dramatically pulled apart. It’s best to mention that P.J. and Bryn are from a different society. They are humans but have special Gifts. They are either a Seer, Gatekeeper, Speaker, or Guardian. Well, Seers and Guardians cannot be together romantically and P.J. is a Seer, and Bryn a Guardian. With them being found out, they are forced to be apart. With that problem, there becomes a huge problem, and that includes Aliens wanting to take control of the world! P.J. has visions of this possible take over and gets help from a mysterious other being. P.J.’s life is definitely not boring anymore as she goes on a path she never thought possible, and at the same time, she is figuring how she will be with her beloved Bryn again. 
This was over the top fantastic! This story really had me at Chapter 1. After reading the first page, I simply could not put it down. This is really the first time that I have read a science fiction/romance, and it was just so great for my first read in that genre. I really loved all the characters, and I mean all, especially the different guys that are in P.J.’s life. They all are different, but have the same love and affection for P.j. and it was interesting to see how they connected to her. I thought it was very creative how the Gifts were presented, and explained. Dyllin has a beautiful Gift herself, and that shows throughout the whole story. There is just so much creativity, loved it! I liked that this just seemed like a very New story, and while I was reading, there was always a twist or a turn that I would not have expected, and that was a great feeling. I liked not being so predictable. As I was nearing the end, I wanted to read more. This story will definitely want you to want more. I cannot wait for her next installment to the series. There will be a Book 2 and 3, so looking forward to that!


My Rating: 4.7/5
My Audience Rating: PG-13 (Some Mature Content)
Here is the excerpt I promised:
And just as suddenly as it had begun, the kiss ended. Bryn stood quickly, leaving me on the ground to stare up at him in a daze. He swore under his breath, turning away from me to run his hands through his hair. “That shouldn’t have happened.” His voice broke an octave lower than normal, causing my stomach to do a little flip-flop. 

“Bryn.” His name, carrying an unsaid plea, felt new and unfamiliar on my tongue. I wanted his lips on me again, so much so that me being almost raped didn’t even seem relevant anymore. “Bryn,” I said again, bringing the fingertips of my hand to touch my lips, imagining his were still locked with mine. 

Bryn turned back towards me, acknowledging my silent plea with wide eyes. Tension was etched into every line on his face. “You’re drunk, and that shouldn’t have happened.” 

Maybe I was buzzed, but not drunk. And for the life of me I couldn’t remember why kissing Bryn was such a bad idea. I’d never imagined kissing someone could feel so—right. So there was no reason why it shouldn’t have happened or why it shouldn’t happen again. “Why?” I whispered. “Why shouldn’t it have happened? I want—I want you to kiss me again.” 


Here is information about the Author:
