Book Tour & Giveaway - Enemy Through The Gates - By, D.T. Dyllin

Title: Enemy Through The Gates
Author: D.T. Dyllin
Publisher: iUniverse Feb, 10, 2012
Genre: Paranormal Fantasy
Reviewer: Tawania


P. J. Stone, like most eighteen-year-old girls, is a little boy crazy and somewhat obsessed with finding the perfect boyfriend. Some days she feels like she might be the last remaining virgin in her entire high school, and maybe even the entire tri-state area.

After a traumatic night at a friend’s party, P. J. realizes what she truly wants has been right under her nose all along. Bryn O’Bannon, her best friend and partner in crime since age five, is head over heels in love with her, and she feels the same about him.

But P. J.’s life isn’t that simple. She’s a member of a separate society that exists secretly among the rest of the world; the society raises gifted individuals to protect the world from interdimensional interlopers, and P. J. was taught to put duty before her heart. She is expected to choose a suitable mate in order to perpetuate the Seer line. Unfortunately, Bryn is a Guardian and is forbidden to date—let alone mate with—a Seer such as herself.

As if figuring out her love life isn’t complicated enough, P. J. begins having visions of a threat to her world only she is able to perceive. Now, she must concoct and execute a plan to avert world disaster while at the same time avoiding the dissolution of her love life.


This book was really a great story. I loved the characters, and the world building. The author did a fantastic job making this world believable.
Paige Joplin Stone is leading a seemingly normal life of a 18 year old girl. Her most consuming worries is trying to find the right guy to be in her life. She doesn't realize that the right guy has been in her life all along. P.J. has been friends with Bryn O'Bannon since they were children, and have always been good friends. Then at a party they really get to know each other on another level, and love blossoms.

When there relationship is found out by their society, they are tragically forced to separate. In the midst of all this P.J. starts to have visions of other beings trying to take over, and control the world. With help from unexpected places, and people, P.J. embarks on a journey that will change her life, and possibly the fate of the world. Can she save the world, and reunite with her true love Bryn? Read Enemy Through The Gates, and find out.

This story was really awesome, I love Science Fiction romances, and this one didn't disappoint. I really got a feeling for the characters, and emotionally tied to Paige. I love that, I love when I feel like I'm right there with with the character going through everything with them. The author did an exceptional job relating her empathy for her character in her writing. As I stated earlier, the world building was completely believable, as was the secondary characters. 

I also think Ms. Dyllin did a good job explaining the Gifts, and the Society. It was very creative, as was the plot twist. They were unexpected, and just when I thought I had something figured out, it wasn't at all what I thought. That's brilliant writing. I definitely look forward to the other books in the series, and am anxiously awaiting their release.

If you like Science fiction Romance with a twist, I definitely recommend Enemy Through The Gates. It will leave you breathless and wanting more.

*****5 STARS


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.”
