Publisher's Summary

Bryan Armstrong and Kyle Detwiler, two college students on the cusp of graduation, are the lucky winners of a contest to become interns on the paranormal television show The Specter Slayers. Their excitement turns to jubilation when they discover that they'll be aiding in the investigation of The Danver Church, one of the most haunted places in America.
Nestled in the remote mountains of Pennsylvania, the church is world renowned for the massacre that occurred there forty years earlier. Accompanied by best-selling horror author Katie Upshaw, they attempt to survive a dream job that quickly turns into a nightmare. The church, adorned with satanic symbols and imagery, is the home of things far worse than any of them could have imagined.

Weak version of a story that has already been done

What would have made The Gate better?

Better writing - I just felt this whole thing was lacking.


What was most disappointing about Jason Brant’s story?

I didn't care for the characters and the obvious caricature of the Ghost Hunters was rather lame. It didn't have enough substance - and perhaps sold as a young adult book my expectations would have been lowered. This story was R.L. Stein at very young reading level.


Did Robert Martinez do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

He did an OK job of characterization - with very different voices.


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Gate?

Nothing needed to be edited out - however the story, detail, and characters needed to be developed more....a LOT more.


Any additional comments?

This story has been done before, and I was really hoping for more umph....I stuck through it just to see if it would get better. Unfortunately, it didn't.

Fantastic book

Any additional comments?

Had a lot of fun listening to this book, it reminded me in a lot of ways of shows like Fringe/Lost and also had a good humor and pace. Finished it pretty quickly but it was great.
