Review: Angels at the Gate

Available this month: Angels at the Gate

****4.5/5 stars

Angels at the Gate is a fascinating adventure-romance and culturally powerful portrayal of early Biblical times.

Recommended readers:

  • If you enjoy learning about women in the Bible
  • Anyone who wants a realistic portrayal of early Biblical times
  • Looking for culture, adventure and a touch of romance

Here’s my Rankings:

  • 5/5 characters
  • 4/5 plot
  • 4.5/5 overall


As daughter (disguised as a boy) to her desert wonderer-merchant father, Adira has had a hard-working but protected life in her father’s caravan. When two Northmen – one mysterious, one friendly and charming – join the caravan, Adira is swept into a new life based on survival, selfish-ambition and love. Angels at the Gate brings Biblical times to life, albeit fictionally, and puts a realistic play on the early story of Abraham and Lot in Genesis. I particularly enjoyed how T.K. Thorne portrays the challenges of a woman during the early Biblical times. It’s a fabulous plot driven story of adventure and culture with a touch of romance.

Note: It’s interesting to read this along with excerpts from Genesis. While Angels at the Gate is fiction, it has some factual inclusions and gives a dramatic portrayal of Biblical times – as noted in the back of the book.
