A Novella of the Elder Races. As a coroner, medusa Seremela Telemar has always felt more comfortable chatting over a dead body than over drinks. But when her wild niece, Vetta, runs off to Devil's Gate, a lawless town that has sprung up overnight in a modern-day gold rush, she knows she has to extricate her before the rebellious girl gets into real trouble. Though she's confident in her head snakes' ability to defend her against attackers, Seremela is still a bit nervous about braving this modern-day Wild West by herself. Vampyre Duncan Turner is not about to let his new co-worker go into that chaos alone. His Vampyric power and lawyer smarts make him the perfect ally, and the fact that he already had his eye on Seremela for more...personal reasons, doesn't hurt matters. Any romantic thoughts pull up short, however, when they arrive at Devil's Gate and learn Vetta is set to hang by morning. In order to save Vetta and themselves, Seremela and Duncan are going to have to fight fire with force and magic with fangs. And pray they make it out of Devil's Gate alive.… (mere)

I read Devil’s Gate when it was first published and loved it. I’ve been on an audiobook kick and decided to try out Ms. Harrison’s Elder Races series in Audio.

Even if you haven’t read an Elder Race book you could still pick this novella up, but I would recommend at least reading Books 1 & 2 first in the Elder Race series; since they give you a sense of what is going on in the world.

Devil’s Gate features Seremela a Medusa and Duncan a Vampyre. These characters are secondary characters introduced somewhere along the line in the Elder Race series.

As for the story, their is no shortage of action, adventure, and danger. The romance is sweet; between these two and their is some major sexual tension that will combust by the end. I also have to point out that when we think of Medusa we don't think nice creatures, so I have to say I like how the author portrayed her Medusa’s. They weren’t creepy, but came of different and noteworthy.

Audio Review Dec. 2017: Sophie Eastlake did a wonderful job with the voices and bringing out the danger and attraction; between Seremela and Duncan. I will say Duncan’s voice was ok, not unpleasant, just a little to raspy for my liking and what I pictured him sounding like, but this didn’t deter me from enjoying this novella again.

The Elder Race series brings us a verity of unique supernaturals, worlds, and so much more. It’s an entering series to read or listen too. I highly recommend diving in.

Rated: 4 Stars

I loved this! Duncan is Vampyre a big shot lawyer and utterly charmed by Seremela and her snakes.

Seremela is a mudesa and has been a medical doctor, coroner, pathologist and an academician. They both currently work for Carling's agency but when Seremela get's a call about her runaway niece Duncan drops everything to help her.

The last few books in the series has had a mysterious book of tarot cards involved. In the last book Vetta, Selremela's niece stole them and now she's about to be hanged for a murder she didn't commit. Duncan and Seremela ride to her rescue, cementing their relationship they'd only previously thought about.

I loved everything about this short novella, just wish there was more. Her snakes cracked me up and the way he played with them and accepted everything about her just had me smiling the whole time. I really hope they will get more time in future books as they are amazing characters.

The blurb itself tell much about the story and since its a short novella I can hardly comment more without spoiling the story . Devil’s Gate is the Elder Races novella that narrates the story of Seremela, the medusa medical examiner that had helped the previous Elder Races characters with cases and sometimes research on something. Now she’s newly relocated to Miami where she can continue working with Carling and Rune, her days became stunted when her sister called up with a news that her unruly niece had trouble in Devil’s Gate, a town where the bad and wild prowled. Duncan Turner, Carling’s Vampyre lawyer who had helped Rune when Carling’s dying, came to helped Seremela when Carling called up about Seremela’s family issues.

For me, Elder Races series are not just any ordinary PNR book series. What’s intriguing about the urban fantasy series is that most of the books are either comedy mythology, mystery and politics which masquerades as paranormal romance. If you judge the books by the cover (full of hunks by the way) you’re likely to miss out a lot from these action adverture books. The short novella actually have a lot of romance elements that the novels itself almost lacks. With the coming book about Drogos and Pia again, the novella tried it best to tie up some of its side characters stories by giving what some readers crave since the novels are more serious that it let on.

The novella bring newer conflict that may be apparent in future storylines; an ancient item resurfaces, the dark fey politics strife and fragile wyr demesne. With the fifth novel coming up in five more month, the novella does manage to make me stay intrigued with the storylines and refreshed some of the books’s side character without rereading the entire series. A skill which most YA writers absolutely lacks. ( )

I'm really loving these in-between novels. They're just enough to tide me over between full-length release.

I enjoyed these two very much. I especially loved how their perception of each other changed over the course of the story.

As with the other shorts Harrison has written, I wish the romance spanned more than a few days. While I believe a Happy-for-Now would work, I'm not sure I bought the I-Love-You's after so short a period of time. ( )
