Gated by Amy Christine Parker

The Gated will be released, August 6, 2013.




Lyla and her parents came to live in, Mandrodage Meadows following the aftermath of 9/11 and the abduction of her little sister. Lyla, her family and other members of the community are under the watchful eye of, Pioneer, their charismatic leader.

The community must follow, Pioneer's words and question nothing. Lyla's life is seemingly perfect. She has good friends and an intended. They are all awaiting the impending apocalypse and have little to  no contact with the outside world.

Lyla questions very little until she meets a young man, who visits her community. She finds herself falling for him and once visit outside of her community results in major changes for her and her community.

The storyline of this book is something that would be ripped out of the headlines. Think of radical cult leaders and incidents that occurred in Waco and Jonestown.

You will easily be sucked in by these characters and boggled by how easily manipulated the characters are by, Pioneer. This is a chillingly realistic story, that will keep you interested.

This book absolutely delivers!

Grade: B+
