Catalyst Gate and The Protectorate series is a must Sci-Fi read -- FanFiAddict Catalyst Gate ends a trilogy that I gave high marks to across the board. I really loved this story. O'Keefe's writing moves at a blistering pace. There's a protagonist with disability, several LGBTQ+ relationships, and traumatic challenges to overcome. Wild ideas, cool tech, wonderful representation, and suspenseful as hell - an easy recommendation for anyone looking for a grand adventure in the stars -- FANTASY BOOK REVIEW Catalyst Gate is the smashing finale to a trilogy that was already poised to be one of my favourites of all time . . . If you're a fan so far, you'll be well rewarded; if you haven't started the series yet, rest assured that it's a journey well worth taking -- REALMS OF MY MIND
