He’s an heir without a throne.While Shammah is away, Aikah falls ill. Even the moon goddess Livnath refuses to save his life. Meanwhile, the Mikana threaten to seize the kingdom. Aikah knows he won’t live to lead his people into battle, so he summons Shammah back home. Shammah returns with reluctance. Before he reaches Aikah, four mysterious creatures guide him to Mount Aleph. On the mountain’s rocky terrain, Shammah wrestles with his inner fears. Will he vindicate himself and find rest and love? Will he become the king his ruthless father never could?

The Gate of Aleph by J.H. Ellis is a fantastic fantasy novel that really impressed me. I love fantasy, so I was excited to get into this one, and I’m happy to say I’ve found another author to keep an eye on because of this book.
The world-building is absolutely fantastic. When I read, my hope is that I get transported into the world that I’m reading about. That is exactly what this author accomplished here. Beautiful, descriptive details. I could see and hear all the things I was meant to. I thought the biblical undertones were interesting and found this story, overall, very compelling.
The characters are fantastic. I truly love when an author puts effort into creating well-rounded characters in fantasy stories. The dialogue felt realistic. The character decisions made sense. The background details gave me a sense of who the people were.
Overall, a series to continue. Don’t miss out!
Thank you to R&R Book Tours and the author for the review copy. All opinions are my own and unbiased.
J.H. Ellis is a former journalist who writes biblically inspired fantasy fiction. The 66 books from Genesis to Revelation carry more power and truth and motivation than all of the great libraries of the world.
From antiquity to the here and now, the Bible is an endless exploration project God has provided for every generation of human beings. Ellis started by diving into the Bible’s depths by pondering its supernatural narratives.
Captivated by the diligent research of author Reona Martin about the biblical origins of the Nephilim, giant beings who were the first-generation offspring of rebellious angels, Ellis asked if she could build a story around her discoveries. Martin agreed and The Seven Gates of the Kingdom trilogy is the result.
