Publisher's Summary

Alexandra Yorke is one of a few trusted clairvoyants working with police on murder cases, but she has a secret. She isn't a clairvoyant, she's a witch unlike any other she has ever met. For years she has struggled to control her gifts, but years living inside one serial killer's head after another has taken its toll, and Alex has reached the end of the road.
Barely able to control her gifts any longer, Alex retreats from the world to live at her grandparents farm where she grew up. Seclusion is her answer, but the world will not leave her alone.
A few months of peace is all she has before a friend calls her in need of help and Alex can't say no. A body has been found, and evidence points to a connection with witches. Who is it that everyone just knows is a witch? Why, that strange woman who just moved back from the big city of course.
What a coincidence!

Great Paranormal Read.

Would you consider the audio edition of Rune Gate to be better than the print version?

I definitely prefer the audio because it brings the story and characters to life.

Who was your favorite character and why?

This is hard because I loved all the characters but I think Douglas wins by a fraction. He is such a charmer.

What does Mikael Naramore bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He brings his voice! I loved how his tone and accent changed for each character and while, at first, I did think it odd that a male was voicing a female MC, Mikael really pulls it off. There are way more male characters than female ones so it made sense to have a male voice. I was really impressed by his range of accents.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No because I knew it was too long to listen to in one sitting. I did look forward to jumping back into the world the author has created though and I was eager to see what happens next.

Any additional comments?

I'm so glad I got the chance to listen to this story. While reading it would of been good, listening to it was better. The story really came to life and I loved experiencing it along with the characters. The story is shrouded in mystery and when it comes together, it really surprised me because I wasn't expecting Douglas or where he came from. I expected a witchy read but this surpasses that. <br/>Mark E Cooper put a lot into his story and it shows. His characters are all well developed and the plot is fast paced. The story drew me in and I really can't wait to see what happens next. This is one I'd definitely recommend you listen to both for the story and the narrators voice. It's an enjoyable and fairly quick read.

Great start to a new urban fantasy series

This is a great beginning to an Urban Fantasy series! Alex is a witch and clairvoyant who helps the police with some of their cases. She can see memories when she touches the victim's body, which helps the police tremendously in their investigation. Even if some of them don't believe her. She can hear people's thoughts and see visions when people touch her, so she lives alone in the forest so she can have some peace. Her world gets completely turned around when a couple of guys from another world enter into hers. This was a great start to the series and I'm looking forward to book 2.

I thought that Mikael did a fabulous job with the narration. All of the characters had their own voice and accent, which made it very easy to know who was talking at all times. He also did a great job with the female characters!

loved it, onto book two!

What did you like most about Rune Gate?

What about Mikael Naramore’s performance did you like?

The Narrator, Mikael Naramore, has a clear and even voice, if sometimes coming across a little slow in his reading, but that might just be me. I like his accent, his reading voice, which is American with a hint of something else, but not quite sure what. He has clearly voiced all the characters, and I could tell who was speaking without the narrative telling me so. This is the first time I've listened to Mr Naramore, and I would be very happy to listen to him again. <br/><br/>

**AUDIO REVIEW**<br/><br/>I was given a copy of the audio version of this book, in exchange for review.<br/><br/>Thank you, Mr Cooper! I was thoroughly engrossed in this book, that I did not see the end coming and I went WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATTTTTTTTTTTTTTT!!!! NNNNNNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Then the epilogue came and I went, phew! *sorta*<br/><br/>But I digress, let me tell you why I loved this. <br/><br/>Alex is best described as a witch with paranormal powers. She sees things, cn hear your thoughts and if you touch?? Lets just say, don't. When asked to "see" into a crime scene, she relives the victim's last few moments, in all their gory, painful detail. Its the runes carved on the victim's body that sent Alex's spidey senses off (my words, not her's) and she finds herself in a good old fashioned battle of good versus evil. But then Douglas arrives. Out of nowhere. Quite literally. With news that actually makes Alex believe that real magic does exist. But more bodies turn up, and its a race against time to stop The Rune Killer.<br/><br/>LOVE LOVEE LOVED this book. It has magic and mayhem, murder and mischief. Jilted lovers and old friends. Although its clean, it is fairly graphic in its description of the violence these victims suffered, especially the first one. Made me cringe a bit.<br/><br/>While I knew there was a second part to this story, I did not see the end coming up quite so quickly, and if I had been READING this, my poor kindle may well have ended up on the floor! I have part two to listen to right after I finish writing and posting this review :-)<br/><br/>The Narrator, Mikael Naramore, has a clear and even voice, if sometimes coming across a little slow in his reading, but that might just be me. I like his accent, his reading voice, which is American with a hint of something else, but not quite sure what. He has clearly voiced all the characters, and I could tell who was speaking without the narrative telling me so. This is the first time I've listened to Mr Naramore, and I would be very happy to listen to him again. <br/><br/>All in all, a thoroughly fabulous way to spend the 7 hours it took to listen to. <br/><br/>5 stars for the book, and 5 for the narration.
