Kurzbeschreibung

In The Gateway, Glenn G. Thater transports us to an age of high adventure where knights battle supernatural horrors, magic is real but hidden, and the line between good and evil is all too thin.

This introduction to the epic Harbinger of Doom series is certain to delight fantasy fans everywhere.

The Harbinger of Doom saga centers around one Lord Angle Theta, an enigmatic warrior of unknown origins and mystical power. No mortal man is his match in battle. No sorcery can contain or confound him. No scholar or sage can outwit him. But for all his skills, he is but one of us; a man, a human, who shares our faults, our dreams, and our ambitions. He boldly strides across the land, fearless, peerless, and cloaked in mystery; all his will bent on righting such wrongs as he deems fit.

Until the day the Gateway opened and turned the world on its head. On that fateful day, Korrgonn came and washed away our dreams. And his outre' realm of Nifleheim set its unholy mark upon our world and claimed it for their own. Only Theta and his companions see the enemies aligning against us. Only they foresee our end coming- the end of civilization, the end of the world of man. Only they can hope to turn the tide of madness and preserve all that we hold dear. But no man, not even our greatest hero, can stand against the Lords of Nifleheim and the dark armies at their command. Fiends that infiltrate unseen within our ranks, that tear down our temples and our traditions; that devour us from within, unseen, unknown, unheralded, and unopposed until the hour grows far too late. Through the murk and mist that hangs before our eyes, one man only sees true. One man pierces the veil of magic that blinds us all and marks the world as it truly is, revealing secrets, secrets of Angle Theta, so horrifying as to shatter a man's mind and call into question the very nature of good and evil.

When mad sorcerers open a gateway to the very pits of hell, releasing outre demons of darkest nightmare upon the world, only the intrepid knights of House Eotrus stand in their way. Claradon Eotrus takes up the mantle of his noble house to avenge his father and hold back the tide of chaos that threatens to engulf the world and destroy mankind. Claradon recruits Angle Theta and Gabriel Garn, mysterious knights of mystical power to stand with him. Theta and Garn take up their swords one last time against the coming darkness -- a darkness from which only one will emerge.

Not entirely my sort of writing, although I do love the genre of fantasy. It seemed with this novel the dialogues were extensive, and the plot did not move forwards fast enough. At times I felt I was reading a novelised version of a Dungeons and Dragons module.

The actual style of writing is not too bad in my opinion, but the author certainly knows how to put a sentence together (but the sentence structure was a little simple and the vocabulary was limited), and his characterization does come out. Unfortunately, for me, the story itself was not engaging enough, which is regrettable, and why I eventually got fed up.

There are those readers that like this type of story and those who do not. I am not that type of reader.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Either I missed the joke, or he did. 6. November 2013
Von Grim Malchien - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Norse knights battling demon spawn, with nary a woman nor a pretty boy in sight. These are the kinds of knights I adore, and Thater couples it with some epic prose and intriguing history.

However, despite the build up to being a great story, I just didn't get the Gateway. It didn't help that the protagonist (although arguably not the main character) is called Angle Theta, and another character is called Tanch Trinagle. I was really waiting for a maths joke to be the punchline. I spent the story wondering whether I was meant to be taking the entire epic tale seriously, or if there was a joke that I wasn't quite getting. Couple that with the ending, which I totally expected to be a follow up of the events which happen in the story, but is actually something totally different, and you have one confused reader.

It would have perhaps helped me to read the Amazon description more thoroughly; that the Gateway is an excerpt from an longer novel. However, I am half of the opinion that the book should stand on its own without the reader constantly acknowledging that character development and a proper conclusion would take place in the novel, rather than in the book they're currently reading.

Thater (is the author's surname the same as the protagonist's?) gets points for creating a dark and portentous atmosphere while only occasionally being pretentious. I can't say for certain whether it gains or loses him points that the entire time I read the story, I could hear the Kingdom Under Fire: Circle of Doom music in the background, or that Angle Theta's dialogue was read in the voice of Troy Baker's Excalibur. It was an intriguing story, yes. But it was baffling. And that did it no favours.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Gateway, (Harbinger of Doom) Kindle version by Glenn G Thater 11. August 2012
Von docsgirl79 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
The Gateway is a an extremely well written, hard to put down book, that I would highly recommended to anyone that is interested in adventures set in the medevial period. The stories depict a battle between humans vs dark and hideous entity from the underworld that entered the earth's realm through a mysterious portal. Their sole purpose is the destruction of the human kind.

The main character the Angle Theta, is a powerful, a very mysterious individual with combating skills beyond the imagination. In stories of this type, the battle is usually between good and evil where the hero represents good. However, the line between good and evil is very blurred in this story as if the main characters and stories are based on actual events.

The author draws you into the story with detailed and graphic descriptions of the surroundings and events. The fighting scenes are so well described, presented with such multi-sensory detail that the events become so vivid in your mind you feel as though you are a participant compelled to choose with whom to stand and bear arms.

This is the second time reading The Gateway which captivated my attention as readily as the first read. A must for any fan of science and mysticism.
4.0 von 5 Sternen A Great Battle! 3. April 2013
Von A Book Vacation - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I was pleasantly surprised by this novella. It's a quick read and the rather long synopsis above says it all: War. With supernatural beings. Much of this novella hinges on a very epic battle that reminded me so much of the awesome battle scenes on screen in the Lord of the Rings movies. Those were amazing scenes, and Thayer aptly paints a riveting picture of a very different battle raging, in this novella, at the gateway as warriors fight to close the portal and keep evil at bay. Some will perish, some will triumph, and some will get away in this awesome fantasy novella that sets the stage for the full novels in the series. Based on this novella alone, I'd be more than willing to try the first novel in the series, even though I'm not really much into fantasy, as it were.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Good intro to a series 14. August 2012
Von Bruin Fan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
It was a little hard to follow at first with so many characters being thrown at you all at once. But by the time you get thru it, you're down to the few that actually matter. Very, very fast paced, so, little character development, but just enough to make you care about them a little. It's an incomplete story as so many are these days, just a tease for the rest of the series (this drives me nuts, hard to get a good fantasy writer who actually gives you the whole story in one book) but am interested in the rest. If you like a lot of action, killing and evil demons out to rule the world...this is one to consider. (Liked the Theta twist, was not expecting that! His background is intriguing and leaves you wanting to discover who he really is and how he ended up a champion for humanity.)
5.0 von 5 Sternen The Gateway 16. November 2016
Von Dennis McHugh - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Excellent book, but it seems to be a condensed version of the Harbinger of Doom, three-book series. If you read this, then you will want to read the other 3 books for sure.
