"The Gates To Faerie" by Dan Melson - IHIBRP 5-Star Book Review

A Fast-Paced & Absorbing Sci-Fi Murder Mystery!

Overview: Mark Jackson's wife, Diane, left him seven years ago, but now she’s back, and looking better than ever, claiming a cult that cured her cancer is now trying to kill her. It’s bad enough that Mark is instantly falling for Diane all over again, but his real problems begin when he wakes up lovingly entwined with his ex-wife's mummified corpse lying in the bed beside him.

Author Dan Melson’s fast-paced, absorbing sci-fi murder mystery is a page-turner as his main protagonist, Mark, is led on a mind-bending journey to find his ex-wife’s killer.

As a fantasy, “The Gates To Faerie” is a familiar tale with a whole civilization of folks whose true supernatural natures remain hidden from the world as they work side-by-side with humans. Melson’s novel includes an extensive cast of characters that run the gamut from the familiar to the sublime. His main protagonist, Mark, is a rather stereotypical businessman with way too many “Milady”’s in his repertoire and his general attitude harkens back to the 1960s. But, he is a rather pleasant and engaging character who is strongly motivated and believes in doing the right thing. Several strong female leads mentor and help guide Mark along on his journey as he undergoes the ordeal of being the main suspect in his ex-wife’s murder, including smart and sassy lawyer, Julie Ingmar—Mark’s legal representative and possible love interest whose assets include much more than a petty face.

Readers will enjoy guessing which characters are part of Faerie and which are not. But think fast, because this plotline moves along quickly and missing a single clue might prove unfortunate.

This novel contains adult topics, situations, and language. This story may act as a trigger for victims of sexual molestation or abuse. I recommend this book for young adults and adults only.

Congratulations to the author on this award-winning story! This novel will be permanently featured on my website at under IHIBRP 5 Star Recommended Reads!
