When will you discover The Otherside?
There is more to the shadows than just darkness
The Otherside is located at the fringes of our world, hiding in plain sight and existing within our shadows. Shielded from humanity, the Otherside is watched over by the BTCO, a highly secret government agency, whose members all possess ‘The Knack’, a genetic anomaly that allows them to see this other world.
Franklyn ‘Bermuda’ Jones is the BTCO’s finest agent, the only human to have passed to the Otherside and returned. Gifted with the ability to physically interact with both worlds, Bermuda reluctantly stands between both worlds, pining for the life he had to leave behind and the daughter he can no longer see. Teamed with Argyle, an enigmatic Otherside warrior, Bermuda is assigned the case of a missing woman who has vanished under mysterious circumstances.
As Bermuda delves further into the disappearance, he uncovers a threat that could destroy the truce between two worlds…and finds himself in a race against time to safeguard humanity’s very existence.
Discover a new world in this fast-paced urban fantasy packed with thrills, action and the odd one liner.
I will openly admit to not being a big reader of fantasy/sci fi novels tending to opt more for crime/thrillers. With Doorways though, I actually get the perfect combination of both genres.
Bermuda is a quite a lonely soul. His gift/burden has left him cutting off all his loved ones as he is scared for their safety due to the world he lives and works in. He is very much misunderstood and prefers to keep himself to himself. You can’t help but feel great empathy for this man, through no fault of his own, his life has been pretty much cursed since he was a child, leaving him quite damaged.
Argyle is his partner who is from the other world. No one in this world can see him, which in parts made for some humorous reading, but it also makes Bermuda come across as being a bit of a weirdo when people see him supposedly talking to himself. Argyle is such a fabulous character, I absolutely loved him. Even though Bermuda may be the main character in this book, Argyle is very much the underdog and just shone through out the story. He actually reminds me very much of Baymax in the Big Hero 6 film. (If you have kids you will know who I mean).
There is certainly quite a bit of action in Doorways. The authors descriptions are very vivid and what I was reading easily played like a film in my head. It would certainly make for quite an epic movie.
Doorways is very much about good versus evil and the constant battle of one man and his side kick trying to stop the bad guys. I have no idea if this is just the first of many in a new series, but it certainly leaves the ‘door’ very much open for one. A highly enjoyable read that will have your heart racing and totally routing for the good guys.
Goodreads 5/5 stars.
