The Last Gatekeeper Tour Banner

Zan knows she’s different. Today she discovers why …

Zanzibar MacKenzie knows she’s a freak. She has EHS – electrical hypersensitivity – which leaves her trying to live a Stone Age life in the twenty-first century: no internet, no phone, no point really. Then Thanriel knocks on her door and the dull summer holiday becomes maybe too exciting. Zan discovers fairies and angels are real beings from other planets, she herself is half alien, and the future of life on Earth rests on her shoulders.

This book is the first of the Chronicles of Fane series.


The story begins on Zan Mackenzie’s  seventeenth birthday when after a row with her mother, her father allows her to slip away to the beach to meet her friend Em and her boyfriend Jamie. On her return she finds her father unconscious and her mother missing and is confronted by the mysterious, otherworldly Thanriel  (an angel) who explains that like her mother, she is a fane, or fairy. She is also a Gatekeeper and he has come to  help her use her powers to save the world from destruction.  Her task is to close the three gates between the Fane’s world and earth.

This amazing book, written from Zan’s viewpoint, deals with so many different issues.  Firstly there is the classic battle between good and evil.  Then there is Zan herself; young, inexperienced and trying to cope with so many fresh challenges in her life –  her newly discovered  fane powers, her developing attraction to Thanriel and, of course, the responsibility for saving the world.  I was hooked from page one and really loved Zan’s character – she’s smart and feisty and of course, the gorgeous Thanriel leaves you  breathless.  By the time I had finished, all I could think about was what was going to happen to Zan and Thanriel in the next book.  A very worthy five star read with great potential as a movie!

I would like to thank the author for donating a copy of the book in exchange for a fair and  unbiased review


Kindle ebook




Katy Haye spends as much time as possible in either her own or someone else’s imaginary worlds. She has a fearsome green tea habit, a partiality for dark chocolate brazils and a fascination with the science of storytelling.

When not lost in a good book, Katy may be found on her allotment growing veg and keeping hens in order to maximise her chances of survival in the event of a zombie apocalypse or similar catastrophe (you never know!).
