Book Review: Gated 3 By Matt Drabble

Gated 3
By Matt Drabble
Genre: Thriller, Horror

It’s time for the multi award winning trilogy to come to an end, but will anyone be left standing.

It was the chance of a lifetime for Avery Grant, the opportunity to run an election campaign for a candidate that seemed like the real deal.

Christian Tolanson has risen through the ranks of British politics. A man with a unique ability to inspire those around him to almost cult like levels of devotion. He has lived many lives down through the ages from his humble beginnings as a child preacher. But now his life force is finally starting to fade and time is running out pushing him to desperate levels. A man consumed by his own destiny and ready to burn the world to get what he wants.

Avery will discover the path that many have walked before her and never returned from. A realisation that anything that seems too good to be true, will likely get you killed.

My Review

Christian Tolanson is a mastermind when it comes to manipulation and getting his way. He is a creepy character that doesn't hesitate to bring on the gore. I like that you can read Gated 3 on its own, but I recommend reading Gated and Gated 2 in order to receive the full and rich history of this wild plot. 

Avery was a great character. I enjoyed her personality and strength. She had to work hard, harder than others, to be taken seriously in the political arena. Avery proves that she can get the job done.

Drabble had me feeling the ultimate feels at the end when showing an unknown side of the villain, Tolanson. The ending is wicked good. What goes around comes around which may or may not be a good thing. Gated 3 is a must read!
