This is a verbal review from both a third and sixth grader who completed the book - as a disclaimer, I did not but then again a middle-aged gray-haired guy is not the target audience!

This is the sequel to The Golden Acorn, which should be read first. Bottom line summary is they both the 3rd and 6th grader loved this book, and they were both quite insistent on purchasing the Kindle-format sequel to the Golden Acorn. When asked what they liked the most, the third grader said he liked the characters, time travel, and the story, which was about all I could get out of him. The sixth grader said she liked the fantasy / science fiction aspects as they are her favorite genres, and she really liked the alternate reality travel aspect. Both of them said they would recommend it to their friends, and three friends downloaded both the Golden Acorn and this sequel to their Kindles.

Similar to the experiences with the Golden Acorn, after reading this book the sixth grader carried on a conversation of how neat it would be to have something like the golden acorn in real life, what she would do, etc. until I couldn't take it anymore.

As I type this, the Kindle price is $1.04 - I believe this is one heck of a bargain and obviously something you should grab for this summer to keep your kids a little occupied: where else can you spend just $1.04 and have both kids entertained for several hours? What I really like is it appears to be a great story and having them want to read more and exercise their minds vs. playing an endless video game!

I picked up the first book in the series (Golden Acorn) when it was free, and decided to get the sequel as well - just in case! I read the first book straight through and thought it was great, then immediately moved on to Glasruhen Gate, which I also read straight through. The second book was very good though not *quite* as good as the first. The author weaves modern-day life with Celtic history and folklore very well, and the fantasy is so matter-of-fact you almost don't even notice it. Glasruhen Gate is a little more towards the 'fantasy' side than the Golden Acorn is - much of the action takes place in the Celtic Otherworld. There is also a more noticeable, but still subtle, undercurrent of - not moralizing, but maybe - life lessons in this book than there was in the Golden Acorn. This isn't to say that the book is preachy - it isn't at all - but Jack is shown issues like 'power corrupts' and 'be careful what you wish for'.

The ending implies that there will be more books in the series - I can't wait! Highly recommended for all ages.

Note on Kindle formatting: Good, but not quite as good as the Golden Acorn. Most of the issues seem to be with the drawings, not the text, though there are a few incidences of a hard return being used in the middle of a sentence, which can be a bit distracting - but those are few & far between & don't detract from the reading experience.

I bought the Kindle edition of Glasruhen Gate immediately after finishing The Golden Acorn. Gate picks up right where Acorn leaves off, and follows Jack on his adventure into Annwn.

In keeping with the first book, the protagonists' problems are not overly dramatized, but rather are dealt with by very cool-headed characters. Jack learns many useful life lessons, which are conveyed nicely through the story, not beat over the reader's head. The book also give a light dose of history (mixed with legend, of course).

The best part of this story is that there are a few surprises waiting to reveal themselves--things that aren't transparent, but that still fit well with the story. Quite a delightful, quick read.

The only issue I had (as with Acorn) is that there is quite an problem with punctuation. I don't know if it's just the Kindle version, but commas, question marks, and quotations were often lacking, or over-used. As a grammar freak, it was annoying, but I got through it.

Camelin though a raven, does a marvelous of being a sulking little boy throughout. He's delightfully irritating and perfect for getting Jack into trouble. Yet in this story, he has a moment of wonderful self-sacrifice. I'm pulled into the sequel now because I have to learn more about what it means that Jack is King of the Forest. This had a great surprise too about Elan's role with the Queen of Annwn. The first book, The Golden Acorn, was a bit slower getting started. This held my interest from the beginning. Even though I am decades older than YA, it's fun sometimes to have the simpler relationships in YA. On the other hand, the mysteries and challenges are still wonderfully captivating and pull me from scene to scene.
Still In Mind
I usually try to avoid "series" books but got the 1st for free and found it enjoyable enough to continue with the next. The characters are likeable, the story suspenseful enough to keep the reader interested and fantasy is fun. It's an easy enough read for an 8 year old but engaging enough for a 10-12 year old. Could also be read to a younger set by an adult w/o too much pain, or any, for the adult.
Risinal
I suggest if you have not read The Golden Acorn ( Book one of the Jack Brenin series) you should read that book first. This is a really awesome book. This book is slightly shorter than The Golden Acorn. I cannot wait to read the rest of this series. This book is amazing. I completely recommend this book for you. Please buy this book. It is not one of those books that you don't like instantly. It is completely worth the money.

I finished reading The Golden Acorn a couple of days ago, and I just had to get the sequel. The Glasruhen Gate certainly did not disappoint. This was a fast-paced, fun, magical adventure. The series is geared towards teens, but at 26, I must say that I really enjoyed it. I look forward to the next book in the series.
Loved it. Yes, I'm in my twenties and I love fantasy books... both adolescent and adult. This happens to be adolescent. The first book was good too. I'm only on the second chapter of the third. :)
