My perspectives on the books I read and whatever else catches my attention..

Dark Territory by J. Gabriel Gates


Dark Territory (The Tracks, #1)Dark Territory by J. Gabriel Gates
My rating: 5 of 5 Hearts

DARK TERRITORY by J Gabriel Gates and Charlene Keel I received an ARC for review.

When Ignacio Torrez moves from the rough streets of Los Angeles to a small town dead smack in the middle of nowhere, he never expects to find himself in the midst of a gang war. But, he soon learns, these are no ordinary gangs. The wealthy, preppie Toppers on one side of the tracks and the working-class Flatliners on the other adhere to a strict code of honor and use their deadly martial arts skills, taught to them by the wise Master Chin, to battle one another for pride, territory, and survival. When Raphael, leader of the Flatliners, falls for Aimee, a Topper girl, the rival gangs prepare for a bloody, all-out war. The only hope for peace between them lies within the dark territory of the abandoned train tunnels where the tracks cross. Under the direction of a mysterious Magician, the awesome power within the crossing sends the rivals on a terrifying quest to find the malevolent force that threatens the existence of Middleberg–and quite p
ossibly the world.
I have never read a martial-arts book before……WOW!! I love this book!! It is filled with martial-arts action, suspense mystery, romance, tragedy, forbidden love, gangs, war, and it’s a YA Read.
I received an ARC for review.

Ignacio Torrez moves smack dab in the middle of Nowhereville from the gang banging streets of Los Angeles, only to find out the town is not as innocent as it seems. He learns an invaluable lesson in honor and magic as he embarks on a thrilling adventure to help bring peace to the Toppers, peppie and rich, and the Flatliners who live by a strict code of honor and have mad martial arts skills, rival gangs and enemies on the brink of war due to a forbidden love, Aimee Banfield, a Topper girl and Raphael Kain, the Flatliners leader.

J. Gabriel Gates delivers an action packed adventurous read, the characters are believable and well developed, the world building will keep you on the edge of your seat. I hated to see it end, I am, oh so, ready for Book 2 Ghost Crown.

I highly recommend this book, it has something for everyone.

  1. Thanks so much for your great review of our book, Dark Territory. J. Gabriel Gates and I had a blast writing it, and even more fun writing Ghost Crown. We appreciate your kind words and hope you continue to follow the series. Charlene Keel

    • You are Most Welcome!! It shows that you enjoyed wrirting it…. I would love to Read ~N ~ Review Ghost Crown also!! J. says it Is better than the first one!!

      • I agree with J – and so does our editor. Ghost Crown is even more exciting than Dark Territory, especially when a half-angel, half-human, gorgeous guy comes to town with the intention of taking Aimee away from Raphael for his own devious purposes. The romance and the paranormal heat up. We’ll make sure you get an ARC of Ghost Crown.

      • Awesomesauce! That sounds like an evil twist! Thank you so much for letting Read~ N~Review Ghost Crown. When does it.come out, so I can start promoting it on my fb pages?
