Destiny's Gate
by Lee Bice-Matheson

Live from a place of love. It conquers all that is evil.

Shaken by the haunting from Conall, Paige Maddison hopes to put it behind her. When Paige’s premonitions, nightmares, and ghostly visions return, however, she realizes there is no way of getting back to the normal she once knew. Try as she might to adjust to her new life at the O’Brien Manor, dark forces begin to brew on the grounds of the haunted O’Brien estate. Paige becomes the unwilling target of the Earthbounds, anguished souls who seek revenge and retribution.

But where there is darkness, there is also light. Through an enigmatic string of events that has her questioning who she truly is, Paige soon learns that she is not only being watched over by guardians of both the spirit and mortal realms, but also being called upon by a greater power beyond her wildest comprehension. As her world is turned upside down, Paige faces a life-changing dilemma: Should she embrace her special gift and fulfill the destiny that is unfolding before her? Or will she succumb to the evil that surrounds her and deny her true identity?

Destiny’s Gate, book two in the Paige Maddison Series, follows the young heroine on her personal journey of discovering inner strength, undying loyalty, and the profound power of unwavering love.

"Destiny's Gate" is a worthy addition to the "Paige Maddison Series." It moves from "Perhaps, I was living between parallel realities" to "This was my destiny -- to protect my family and our heritage, with a little help from my friends." In between are numerous twists and turns which involve character, knowledge, and understanding. In fact, it is a coming-of-age novel, about a young woman's maturity, with many and many a transformation along the way! A detail: The introduction of Grey Owl as a person and as a power is unique in my reading experience. There are many worlds here. Indeed, here is a novel that is written with power and excitement and ... let me add ... a sense of vision. -- John Robert Colombo, Author & Anthologist of over 200 books.

"Beautifully written, inspiring and moving, Destiny's Gate questions our faith in good versus evil in a truly unique ghostly suspense for teens." - International Best Selling Author Cheryl Kaye Tardif
