The Gates of The Frontier Universe by Christopher Villanueva

I received this book from the author for the purpose of this review. All comments and opinions are entirely my own.

The Synopsis:

Following the mysterious events of the catastrophic ‘Court War,’ the most diabolical sociopath of the age has returned. A devastatingly powerful psychic warrior and unmatched strategist of war, this terror will suffer nothing in his plot to conquer the realms of the Court.

Join the heroic descendants of a mighty lineage as they quest for ancient artifacts vital to their salvation. Through daring swordfights and frenzied shootouts, battle alongside cunning warriors, defending the worlds against enemy invasion. From the eyes of a decorated general, scheme with Pirates and plot the domination of the Court.

And lastly, uncover the truth of the highly enigmatic Frontier Universe and the threat its fall poses to their modern society.


The Gates of the Frontier Universe has a unique plot line and lots of interesting characters. The battles are gripping and pull you into the story and the worlds will dazzle before your eyes.

From the very beginning of the book is non-stop action, and graphic intense action at that. It is not overly detailed by any means, but it is most certainly not a book for a weak stomach and an accurate imagination. The swords and dark psychic powers give the book it’s intensity and the author did a very well job at capturing the emotion just right.

However, there was a lot of profane language that dominated some of the main scenes and some other name calling. The scenes, I think, are a little overdone and are much too lengthy. I’m not a slow reader by any means, but one chapter took me almost 45 minutes to read, and that was just one scene switching out point of views. For readers who enjoy their books at night, you might enjoy this long-winded novel, however for me, I have to read during the day and will need multiple stopping points in between chapters to get other stuff done and 45 minutes wasn’t often enough.

So taking everything into consideration, I did enjoy the storyline of this novel but I think it could have been cut shorter and I did not appreciate the language used much too often, therefore I give The Gates of the Frontier Universe 3 out of 5 stars. I recommend it to an older audience of 16+ who do most of their reading at night.
