The only life Santha Lathagin has ever known has become her prison. Vicious gossip is everywhere. Whispers of a scandal have turned to accusations of murder, and fingers are pointing her way. Feeling powerless and alone, she yearns for escape.

When Santha stumbles upon a small, rusted key in the forest near her home, it seems her silent pleas have been answered. Awakened by her touch, the key demands to be heard—and she is not the only one to heed its call.

Thrust into a world only glimpsed in the stories of her childhood—of faeries and princes and eldritch magick— Santha sets out to unlock its secrets. But uncovering the truth has its own perils, and as the key’s influence grows, she will be left with a choice: survival or sacrifice.

But will it truly be hers to make?

… All the while, in the north, something ancient stirs. A great power that could unravel the very threads of existence.


Hi everyone! Today’s video is a dedicated book review for Beckoning Of The Gate by Benjamin J Ryan. So I received the ebook from the author in exchange for an honest review. This was such an immersive and atmospheric read with a slow quest-like story and a lot of eldritch creatures and magic. I had a great time reading it. Make sure to check out my full review on Youtube. Hope you enjoy the video.


Born and raised in the tropical heat of North Queensland, Australia, Benjamin (Ben, Benji, Benny, Benno, take your pick) has always had his nose in books of magic, heroes, and the supernatural. He started writing at the age of fifteen, an enthusiasm that has become a passion and a habit, as well as a distraction from his profession as a qualified physiotherapist. When not writing or working, he enjoys dallying in the worlds created by his beloved books, films, and games. Beckoning of the Gate is the first entry in his debut fantasy series: The Vāyilian Threads. And old gods willing, it won’t be his last.
