Review: Dark Magick by Stacey Thompson-Geer and Stevie Trinity

The Gatekeepers Series: Dark Magick by Stacey Thompson-Geer and Stevie Trinity

*I received this ecopy ARC from Roxanne at Bewitching Book Tours in exchange for an honest review and participation in the virtual book tour.

Book Description:
The world has changed, we have changed. The world we once knew has fallen away and left us in a wasteland of Magick. Powerful witches and underworld gods control our lives. The past comes back in ways we are not prepared for. The Gatekeepers are our only hope. The question is if we can get to them first.

My Thoughts:
I enjoyed the story.  It is told from the viewpoint of the main characters alternately.
This book is filled with interesting, dedicating, self-sacrificing characters.  It is also filled with nasty, evil, cruel, betraying characters.  All these characters are mixed together in complex relationships, leaving the reader to wonder which are which at times.
The main characters, Rhea and Lynn, are both witches and have an incredible friendship that includes an emotional psychic type of bond.
I found the fact that some of the characters are able to recall past lives and interact with people in this life in response to those past lives, the freedom fighting witches and the bad government hunting good witches to all be aspects both original and intriguing.
The ending is a cliffhanger that leaves the reader with their jaw hanging open and waiting for the next book.
