Fan Mail from Natosha

I previously bought Prisoners of Pride before you changed the ending. Please send me the new ending... Thank you! 


Yes, Natosha the ending has been changed. The original concept was a two book series, but because of publishers had been lengthened to three. Since then I've parted ways with publishers and have returned to the original concept of the two book series.

Yesterday, you dropped off a series of books at Raymond B. Stewart 
Middle School in Zephyrhills, The Gate of Lake Forest Series and I 
must say WOW! The ladies in the media gave me your books to read and I must say I could not put them down. I read the first book in one 
night; I know my students would love to hear more about your books. I was wondering if you come to schools and talk about your books.
I would love to hear from you.
Thank you

Review from Shawn Weaver

from Shawn Weaver, CoAuthor of Ripper's Row

Prisoners of Pride is the second installment of Ami Blackwelder's Guardian of the Gate saga. Ami took the first person perspective of Michael Cole, letting the reader see his world and the struggle he has with his love, Evelyn. Weaving the reader through her imagination, Ami takes you into the world of Emeralusia. A world filled with elfin magic and beauty, which is slowly being overcome by war that is ravaging the land. Will Michael survive in this world so unlike his own. You must get this novel and find out. My only question is will there be a third book in the series? I for one certainly hope so.

Review from Magnolia Belle

from Magnolia Belle of  Black Wolf Books

Elves and dark wolves and humans – oh, my! This story centers itself in a forest - no, that’s not quite right – in two forests, one in the human world and one in Emeralusia, land of the elves. These forests are separated by a single, hidden gate accessible only by elves and guarded by elves, lest the dark wolves get loose on the humans.

Michael Cole, star soccer player for his high school, meets a new girl in class, Evelyn, with emerald eyes and caramel skin. His curiosity immediately turns to attraction, which is underlined by delight when he discovers she is attracted to him, as well. What should be a simple, sweet romance instead unleashes forces neither of them reckons with and both their worlds are put in peril. 

Ms. Blackwelder has gone to great depths to create Emeralusia, its creatures and its history. The second book ends with unanswered questions, paving the way for a sequel. There are parts of the story that fly by with great action scenes, description and dialogue. However, there are also parts that, to me, made slow reading of Emeralusian history. The characters are great and, of them all, I’d stick Venda in my pocket and take her home. 

I’d recommend this for YA. For full disclosure, this book was sent to me for review. 


Review from Shawn Weaver

from Shawn Weaver, Author of Sense of Honor

Can you believe that a gate between worlds exists in the wilderness of Colorado? Well you can now. Ami Blackwelder gives young love a thriving environment in her novel, Guardians of the Gate. Aimed for young adult readers, Guardians of the Gate, shows the senior year of Michael, a star high school soccer player, as he falls madly in love with Evelyn, the school’s mysterious new arrival.

With precise detail Ami Blackwelder leads the reader through Michael’s eyes as he discovers that there is more to his mysterious dream girl than meets the eye – Danger. For thousands of years elves lived hidden in the forests of Colorado in peace and tranquility. But when Michael follows his new found love through the gate to her true homeland, he discovers that there is more to his world than he ever dreamed of. But once he leaves the world of the elves. Shadow Wolves, thriving on death and destruction, follow Michael’s scent back through the gate into his home of Lake Forest.

Can Evelyn protect Michael from the shadow wolves? Can Michael protect his friends, family, and the one he loves from the monsters in the night? Guardians of the Gate is a must read for anyone who loves a good story, and the idea that true love conquers all.
