43. The Midnight Mercenary by Cerberus Jones

Third in The Gateway series which took a darker turn.

Synopsis (as taken from the back of the book) is as follows:

It’s a dark and stormy night at the Gateway Hotel. And of course, the latest intergalactic visitor is the most terrifying yet. But who is he, and what does he want?

With their families and the hotel in grave danger, it’s up to Amelia and Charlie to save the day…

Ability to read – This third installment was just as easy to read as the two before it. This one was a little darker than its predecessors but no less addictive. In this book I really began to feel for the characters and understand how well they worked together as a team.

Characterisation – Amelia and Charlie face their most fearful intergalactic guest yet in this story that brings all the characters together (Amelia’s Mum and Dad, her brother and Charlie’s Mother.) It is only a small dip into something darker but it felt a lot different from the previous two books. It was interesting to see the characters deal with fear and see them fight to save those important to them.

Visualisation – It was easy to visualise what was happening and to imagine the visualisation of the new intergalactic guest. The picture in my mind was decidedly darker but still interesting and captivating. It was easy for me to visualise the actions of the character’s and the dialogue in-between.

Uniqueness – I don’t think I’ve seen an intergalactic guest quite like the one that was mentioned here. The details were really strong and descriptively gave me a very good visual of what Amelia and Charlie were seeing.
