My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The Last Gatekeeper is a fantasy read and tops the high end of the YA for me because of its storyline for teenager Zanzibar Mackenzie. This is the first book in The Chronicles Of Fane series.
Zan suffers from electric hypersensitivity as does her mother, it means they can have no electrical items in their house, no internet , no phone, no TV. Zan is home-schooled because she couldn’t cope with all the electrical interference associated with a school. At home they live a primitive life and Zan feels like a freak.
A freak until the day she discovers that she is a half-alien and her hypersensitivity can be dulled by the presence of super-hunk Thanriel a Talvarrine. His appearance follows the disappearance of her Mum and the discovery of her Dad lost in a deep sleep which no-one can wake him from.
With Than’s help Zan seeks out Cal and is told she is a gatekeeper between the human and Fane world and that she must stop the Queen of the Fane from destroying the human world.
I liked the fact this book was set in Britain, much of the YA fantasy book series I read are set in the US, this is a refreshing change. For lovers of YA fantasy books this book ticks all the boxes.
This review is based on a free copy of the book give to me by the author.

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.

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!).
