Hidden Gates (P.J. Stone Gates Trilogy) - D. T. Dyllin
Hidden Gates is a great intro to this series. It kept me intrigued, and had me wanting to learn more about the world.

PJ is a Seer, and hasn’t had her first vision yet. She’s pretty much the only one that hasn’t had one. She wants boys to notice her, and to get one vision, but she has no idea how much those two things will turn her world upside down. PJ suddenly has guys wanting to be with her, and doesn’t know what to do about it. I think she’s a pretty realistic teen character. She’s very naive in some aspects, but she acts how I figure some teenage girls do when they are forbidden to date a guy. Bryn is also a great guardian. I didn’t like how possessive he was at times, but I can understand why he was. Khol creeps me out, even when we find out who/what he is. He just has the creepiness factor.

The story starts off kind of slow, but quickly builds as PJ’s visions start. There are a few tense moments, and definitely some steamy ones. Not only do we have Seers, Speakers, and Guardians, but there are also Dragons!!!! Oh and creepy alien type creatures. The only downfall is that I felt the story was focused too much on PJ’s relationships with the guys that are attracted to her. But it still worked. You get to see how she feels when confronted by different people, and how she has to figure out if what she has with her forbidden boyfriend is more than puppy love. You also realize how much she is against the mating rules of her people. I don’t blame her at all, you should get to be with who you want regardless of their rank in society.

I’m ready to read the next books in the series. I have to know what happens next after the way Hidden Gates left off.
