This fantasy novel was unique, and so interesting that I found myself half way through the book before I knew it. There were so many paranormal creatures in this novel that I could safely say that it has something for everyone. The story was well done, the plot flowed easily, and the characters were very well developed. While I have never read anything from Thai author before I will definitely be looking for more.

Im a first time reader of Author Ashley Pagano and i’m going to keep reading her works lmao. She is an amazing storyteller,I started and finished The Gauntlet in one reading. I mean a paranormal hotel color me intrigued. She really has a one of a kind mind to come up with all the danger, twists and turns, awesome characters, and wonderful fantasy world. The next book in the series is The Guard. I can’t wait to continue with Ommity and Links journey to see what happens next. I highly recommend it if you love all things supernatural and romance.

The Gauntlet is the very first book from The Soppranaturale Series by Ashley Pagano. This story takes you right in to the setting of a hotel, known in the supernatural world to be a safe haven for those with magical abilities, and known in the human world to simply be haunted. Link is a fae who works at the front desk of the hotel. While he is working, the only other fae in the world walks into the hotel with her fiancé, and his life completely changes. He feels an intense energy in her presence that he cannot fathom ignoring. Eventually they interact, and he finds himself saying too much and doing things he said he’d never do again.

This book has a bit of everything supernatural, which I always love. It was a very fast-paced read but there was so much within the pages to pull you right into the story and make you feel like you’re there with them. I really enjoyed this read from beginning to end and I definitely look forward to the next book. Also, I must say the cover to this book is absolutely beautiful!

Link works at The Soppranaturale to the unknowing eye, it is an up market hotel with all the glamour and pizazz the high rollers in society would want, plus a good old Irish bar in the basement and Link has been working there so long now that he is practically the owners right hand man. Ommily is a young woman who is on holiday with her fiancée and because she is obsessed with all things supernatural, she insists that they stay on one that is reportedly haunted.

The moment that Ommily walks in the door, all eyes are on her, men and women alike and she doesn’t seem to even have an idea, but Link is just as distracted as everyone else when he starts to check a man in at the front desk, but as soon as Ommily and Link set eyes on each other, there is a reaction that neither of them can deny. Thankfully, Links boss is there to give a hand and take over from him, at least until the two lovebirds move away to go to their room, this is where it is confirmed that that reaction was nothing normal, Link has just found the only other Faerie in the world and she is already taken.

This leads to Link drowning his sorrows and Ommily to wander into the bar just as he stops a fight breaking out, this leads to a question and answer session where Ommily finds out the truth she has always wanted to know, that werewolves, vampires and shapeshifters really exist and that she can be a part of their world, but unfortunately, her fiancée cannot. This leads to her finding out that together her and Link can be the strongest pair in the world with their opposite control of the uses of the four elements, but in order to be able to use these abilities to protect those around them, they first have to face The Gauntlet, but can they work together and make the hard decisions needed without killing each other first? This is a fantasy where life is not just black and white, humans and supernaturals, there is a balance which needs to be maintained and protecting that balance is the hardest thing to do and this is why this story will keep you engaged throughout as the fight for survival takes place.

I got hooked from the very beginning of this book. All of the supernatural creatures exist together in this series. They live in a supernatural refuge masked as a hotel. Link and Ommily are faeries, one turns evil and the other is trying to protect everyone . I’m ready to read the next book in the series.

The Soppranaturales hotel is a great place to go if you’re not human. Vampires, witches, werewolves and much more reside here under the human radar and its kind of like a safe house for monsters.
Link is the last known Fae and lives at the Soppranaturales hotel and works as a clerk. His life is completely changed when Ommily enters the hotel and he realizes that she is also Fae. As the last 2 fairies on the planet, they have the potential to be the most powerful beings alive but they have to prove that they are as powerful as they’re supposed to be.
Both of these characters are impulsive and it had me shaking my head throughout the whole novel. The descriptions of the surroundings and the use of magic was very detailed and easy to envision. I’m not ready to check out of the Soppranaturales hotel but; alas there are no more pages.

Enjoyable and unique
This was a fun supernatural read. A very different perspective of the supernatural world with The Soppronaturale refuge. The characterisation was brilliant with a twist on the standards. This is an easy read and the story has a natural flow. There is a lot to take in but the author cleverly weaves the layers within the storyline. With the action of the Gauntlet, the fate of the fairies, destinies, the powers each supernatural has and the secrets that must be kept, I was enthralled from start to finish. Really looking forward to The Guard.

The Gauntlet is one action packed story that grabs you right from the start. The moment Link and Ommily see each other and that spark connects, I’m glued. What is it? Why is it there? They are the only two fae left and I’m intrigued to know where the story is going. New twist on the fantasy/paranormal. I loved it. Let’s have some more. The story is full of drama, adventure and an annoying human fiance.There are lots of supernaturals around. I loved all the characters. Such a variety to fit everyone’s needs. The chemistry is out of this world. I can’t wait to read book 2.
