Being a modern woman is not easy in these trying times especially if you are really new to the world and have a mission of saving the world and are connected to six fantastic guys. In PEACEKEEPER II: THE GATES OF LIFE, Ms. England brings further along the adventures of the nymph Kira and six chosen: Gallegar - a vampire, Lucas Kane - a shapeshifter, Danolas - a witch, Patrick - a shade, Benjamin Cassidy - a suprahuman, and Koran - a faerie and Kira's brother.
Kira has figured out more about life and it challenges. While trying to figure out why the gates of heaven and hell are closed turning San Francisco in into limbo-land for souls awaiting their end reward, she must also sort out new feelings and emotions about two of her chosen. Is it love or lust, and will Gallegar and Lucas understand enough not to lose sight of their mission given to them by the Power, when she makes her final decision? And can she make a decision after seeing what the demons have in store for her and her chosen?
In the end the answer is yes, though failure to communicate and trust by all the chosen almost allow evils to win and turn the world into a perpetual hell. It is only when Lucus, Gallager, Kira and the rest of the chosen begin to understand the power of true love and its ability to be their ultimate weapon in the a battle for all the souls in the world does hope rein free again.
Ms. England, in this story has created the ultimate mind candy, skillfully blending together fantasy, romance, love and perils of the evil reborn. Added to the mix is her visual descriptivism that is so real you can almost taste the strawberries. Great second story for the series.
