Traveling the world in order to stop the greedy from developing untouched landscapes, environmentalist Garrett Evergard is currently trying to keep Washington politicians and developers from clear cutting in the Pacific Northwest next to the National park.
After days with nothing special to show Garrett comes across exactly what he needs, a spirit bear. Very rare and typically found in the far north Garrett starts snapping pictures and taking video. He forgets to watch his step, slips and falls down a deep ravine which causes severe injuries and unconsciousness.
Raised between two worlds Bryson Summers is a witch from a long line of witches. He is also the current Gatekeeper between the worlds of Earth and Terra. It is the spirit bear who takes Bryson to the injured human. Though it’s normally frowned upon he takes Garrett through the Gate to Terra to heal him.
The environmentalist awakens in a fantastical place of dragons, unicorns, and one very sexy witch. As Garrett heals, they inevitably grow closer. Neither says the ‘L’ word, but the feeling is there. They both have responsibilities however in different worlds. Garrett must face Washington while Bryson continues to thwart the local Duke who wants control of the Gate for himself. Finding a way to be together won’t be easy, but it is the only answer.
Flawless! The perfect blend of sensual, vivid characterizations and an intricate plotline comes together in To the Other Side. Clever word building with layered descriptive phrasing that puts the reader into Terra without going overboard with narration. Garrett and Bryson are meant for each other, no arguments. And the secondary characters are just as interesting. To the Other Side is a book impossible to put down even when it’s after midnight. I Joyfully Recommend To the Other Side. Impatiently waiting for Book 2, can you hear my foot tapping? Hmmm?
