Welcome to Meet My Character’s Titillating Tuesday Series Spotlight for all the book bingers out there!
Today we are featuring
The Gateway Series by Louise G. White!
The ‘Gateway’ series is about a school-girl who is drawn into a system of other worlds/realms which coexists with Earth. There are demons from the realms, the worst of which traffic in rather gullible or greedy humans. After her first horrific encounter with a Gateway to another world, Carolyn is changed and becomes the mythical, feral ‘destroyer’. She is eventually anchored (civilised) by startling means and is recruited by the ancient organisation of the Protectorate. Together they police the gateways and work to restore order beyond the gateways.
There are challenges and surprises to be had from the outset. With fantastical settings, lots of action and interesting relationships developing throughout, the tension mounts as Carolyn’s magical and enlightening journey progresses. She discovers that life was far less complicated in the beginning, when killing demons was her only concern.
Demons are dealing through the gateways and the balance of the realms is at risk. In the midst of her ‘on the run’ existence, a schoolgirl must trade her books for weapons and answer her ‘Calling’. Whilst retrieving a human from another world, Carolyn is faced with a quick decision and ends up bringing a demon back with her. Little did she know the effect this being would have on her. Killing demons is no longer the simple challenge that it used to be. A new adventure is about to raise Carolyn to an Earth-shattering awakening!

Chasing the Demon
The system has been changing; the Agency flaunts its cruel practices, and the balance of the realms has been disrupted. Ethan’s enforcers are already stretched to the limits, and things get worse when alliances are forged between the worst of the demon realms. Meanwhile, on Empustat, Carolyn has spent an entire year being “reconditioned” – her memories being wiped and replaced in order to produce a limited and vapid princess. Under the constraints of the Chief, she is no longer the feared and mythical “destroyer” Carolyn’s life of privilege is marred only by the expectations held for her to marry Peter and produce heirs for the realm. Her friend, Mario, in contrast, has suffered hardship and humiliation at the hands of the Lilim guard – and a chance encounter will spur Carolyn’s awakening. The disabled gateway has frustrated the team’s efforts to reach Carolyn, and Ethan and Note can barely tolerate each other, but both mage and demon share the same goals. Hope by way of an unexpected source leads to the team embarking on a plan so daring that their survival hangs in the balance. With old and new friends from the realms, the fight for order continues.
About the Author…
Although I’ve been writing Urban fantasy for the last three years, I’ve had a variety of jobs both before and during that time, including waitress, library assistant, nurse, and police officer. I hold a BSc in Health Studies, and a PG certificate in Primary Education. The scenic west coast of Scotland is where I live with my family.
My varied life experiences were not strictly by design, but have likely given me fuel enough for the next few decades of of writing. Fortunate enough to come across some of the most amazing real life characters, there’s been good, bad, and downright ugly at times. I can say the same for many of the situations in which I’ve landed. Let’s face it, delivering a baby to an adoring couple is as far away from the reality of bagging criminals as you can get. And yet, I’ve been passionate about all the jobs I’ve done, soaked in the experiences, and blanked out the worst ones for the good of my mental health. But they are all there, happily bubbling, or festering away, to be recalled when I need them.
