BBNYA Semifinalist Spotlight Tour | 10 Nov 2022
This year, the Book Blogger’s Novel of the Year Award (BBNYA) is celebrating the 50
books that made it into Round Two with a mini spotlight blitz tour for each title.
I am trying my best to be a part of this spotlight blitz. Today’s BBNYA semifinalist spotlight features the book named ‘The Gatekeeper of Pericael’ by Hayley Reese Chow. Since this is November, and the weather is mostly moody where I live, I am quite in the need of a dark fantasy like this one.
In Pericael, no one goes out after dark…
Twelve-year-old Porter would much rather spend his weekends playing soccer than channeling spirits in the parallel universe of Pericael. Unfortunately for him, Porter’s family has guarded the gate between Earth and monster-filled Pericael for generations, so he’s not getting out of Gatekeeper lessons anytime soon.
But some after-school activities are more dangerous than others.
When a soul thief threatens the gate, Porter reluctantly comes to its defense… and gets thrown deep into Pericael’s dangerous jungle wilderness. With the help of two fierce native girls, Porter must learn to embrace the creepy spirits and find his way back to the gate. But the soul thief is racing for the gate too, and if he gets there first, Porter won’t have a home to go back to.
