Like many kids would be, Max is upset about being sent to his grandpa's house for summer. But things begin to change his life while he is still on the bus to go to his house.
This book captivated me from the beginning. It was fast paced and full of wonder. Max and his new friend Cindy learn that magic and other worlds aren't just a thing of science fiction. They get to learn what is wrong with the town Grandpa lives in and why the harassment from the town started on the bus for Max.
Don't start this book late in the afternoon. Otherwise, you'll end up like me, riveted to my spot wanting to know what happens to Max and Cindy and not seeking out the bed when you have work in the morning. This book was awesome.
An audio book is only as good as its narrator and he was amazing. His voiced lured me into the story in a way that made me not want to leave it.

This is an exciting fantasy book about a boy, Max, who begrudgingly goes to his grandfather's house for the summer only to realize that all is not what it seems. Max's grandfather Joe is actually the the Gatekeeper who guards a gate that is the door to infinite worlds and the different magic in each one. Joe wants to train Max to be his predecessor. There are also people in the town where Joe lives and all over who want access to the Gate and are willing to fight to get it. The whole town is under a curse of evil working against Joe. In this book Max along with his new friend Cindy learn about the Gate and what everyone is willing to do to gain access to it. They learn about magic and traveling between worlds.
This story is an interesting premise. It's full of non stop action and keeps the reader interested. Max, Cindy and Joe are likable characters. I enjoyed following their adventure. The only thing I didn't quite understand was why Cindy's family was the only family who hadn't yet been affected by the curse. I know that Joe's friend helped Cindy to hold it off once she learned of it but how did they dodge it until then.
I'm excited to see what Max and Cindy get up to the next time Max goes to visit Joe. I'm sure the next adventure through the Gate will be even more wild than this one.
I would like to thank the author/narrator/publisher for generously providing me with a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
