Broken Gates by: D.T. Dyllin


Synopsis: P.J. Stone is a Seer who saw too little, too late.

In the past, her biggest worries were boys and school—but war has a way of changing things. Now, the alien Riders are trying to overrun the world. As the last of their kind, P.J. and her friends must find a way to save humanity before there’s nothing left to save.

After choosing a mate, P.J. hoped she'd have time to enjoy her love life. But with everything changing so quickly and major secrets revealed, who knows what the future will bring
?



Thoughts: Oh my heart breaker! I don't even know where to start. D.T. Dyllin delivers all the same action as the first book. There's massive angst, betrayals, heartbreak, and yet it's all so seductive. So many secrets are revealed and so many decisions made. It's a whirlwind of adventure and bittersweet moments. Mostly though, my emotions are screaming from every direction because of the ending.

Poor P.J., honestly, I have no idea how this girl continues to stand strong and trust in everything she does. Everything around her changes so rapidly in Broken Gates. So many things happen her that I wasn't expecting at all, and I was pleasantly surprised. But, honestly I don't know how her heart hasn't broken into a million tiny pieces with all the love angst going on. I surely would have, so I commend her  for that.

With our other characters, I had to grow to like Jenna in Hidden Gates, but in Broken Gates I kind of loved her and I'm really hoping for a happily ever after for her. Then there's Kohl and Bryn aka the love triangle for tortured souls. I admit in book one, I wasn't a Kohl fan at all. I thought he was too aggressive and power hungry... though he is very sexy and has green eyes (which is always a win for me). In Broken Gates though I'm still not team Kohl, I like him. You begin to see that he truly does care for P.J. and would do anything for her. Then on the other side is Bryn. Oh my sexy dark hair, bright blue eyes, lovely, amazing Bryn. I just adore Bryn to no end. Bryn loves P.J. with all of his heart even if he does make dumb decisions sometimes. I am and forever will be team Bryn.

Was the book amazing? Definitely. Am I extremely angry about the ending? Definitely. Heartbreaking, cliff hanger endings are evil and that's exactly what D.T. has done to us readers. Although, I have a feeling this may not be a cliff hanger and that the result will totally shatter my heart. But, alas I will hope for the best! Totally loving this series. I love all the emotions that these books evoke and the amazing world building. Plus, can we mention how gorgeous the covers are? Love them! Overall, fantastical second book.
