Ross Lawhead in his new book “Fearful Gates book coverThe Fearful Gates” Book Three in The Ancient Earth Trilogy published by Thomas Nelson returns us to the world of Nidergeard and Daniel Tully and Freya Reynolds.

From the back cover:  Plans that have been shaped for over a thousand years will finally be executed when dragons awake and the gates between worlds are thrown open.

Daniel and Freya, along with Alex, Vivienne, and the knight Ecgbryt, join together with the inhabitants of Nidergeard to confront the forces allied against them in this final volume of The Ancient Earth Trilogy.

Nidergeard lies exposed and the army that the dark wizard Gad has been gathering over the past yearsmade from giants, dragons, trolls, and yfelgopesis finally assembled and ready to invade the nation. All that stands in their way is the Langtorr, the last standing structure in Nidergeard, and its inhabitants.

The fate of Britain—and the world—all centers around the events of a single day . . . a day when the mystery of what lies behind The Fearful Gates is revealed.

This is it! All the events of the previous two books has come down to this. The enemy has allied its forces and is going to do the last battle to take over Nidergeard. If you think this story has been epic until now “The Fearful Gates” is going to take you to the extreme. The good guys do not seem to be as strong as the forces opposed to them and this makes for a highly intense read.  “The Fearful Gates” is the culmination of an adventure where the battle for good and evil has never been so important.  This is not something that we can afford to lose.  This is a page turning thriller as the war of light against darkness rages.  In these pages there is much to learn of mythology and, I think, Mr. Lawhead has done an outstanding job.
