Publisher's Summary

In Book 2 of the "Golden Queen" trilogy, Maggie Flynn has become, by test of combat, the new Golden Queen. Maggie and her companions, the bounty hunter Gallen O'Day and the sentient bear Orick, face an attack by Dronons on a planet where humans have achieved the pinnacle of genetic engineering. The trio must stop the invaders while guarding the secret of Maggie's whereabouts, for she is only the Golden Queen until her champion, Gallen, is defeated by a Dronon challenger.

Critic Reviews

"[F]ans should get a charge out of the continuing adrenaline-packed adventures of the ever-charming Gallen, Maggie and Orick, the talking bear." (Publishers Weekly)
"A rainbow mixture of technology and mythology, filled with vibrant colors, larger-than-life heroes, and thunderous action. A grand quest across a kaleidoscope of parallel worlds." (Kevin J. Anderson)

If you want a book read by a half literate robot..

What would have made Beyond the Gate better?

The author has no idea how to communicate the atmosphere, he sounds jilted, as though Captain Kirk were narrating the solemn history of a star, really horrid reading. I love the book, but not the audio version, very very disappointed.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Beyond the Gate?

NA

What didn’t you like about Peter Ganim’s performance?

Nothing, he did horribly.

What character would you cut from Beyond the Gate?

none

Great series but the Audible is missing chapter 32

This is one of my favorite series and I saw it was on sale and jumped on the deal, I finished Beyond the Gate then started book 3 only to find something missing. Chapter 32 (which I recommend stopping by a library and reading) closes out book 2 and is the opening into book 3. By the audible book alone, you'll spend days wondering when are they going to explain about so and so. So just a warning that the chapter is missing, Peter Ganin does an excellent job bringing the story across and with the discounted price, I highly recommend it.
