Book Description

***A READER VIEWS AWARD WINNER & ERIC HOFFER AWARD FINALIST***

The Dark Forest is moving and a horde of bloodthirsty monsters is on the hunt. For the peaceful denizens of Erla, time is running out.


Two thousand years after three clans flee the world of humans through Eon's Door to find sanctuary in a realm called Erla, a prophecy left to them by the ancient race that created the tree portal is coming true. A trusted sage has stolen the portal's key and is using the awesome power that separated the worlds to tear apart the very soul of Nature. The key must be taken back and Eon's Door closed--before it's too late. 

Hope lies with a "child of doubt" from the world the clans left behind and the courageous young Erlan who's been sent to find him. Together they must retrieve the key to Eon's Door. It won't be easy; abominations of beasts and trees stand between them and their goal. Even worse, the sage knows the prophecy and is waiting for them.


"A captivating storyline with a lovely surprise at the end...beautiful imagery, and a great read." Sift Book Reviews

4.0 out of 5 stars Delightful fantasy novel March 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found this book to be a refreshingly good read on the good versus evil concept. While there were battle scenes and violence, it wasn't particularly gory or long-winded in terms of fight scenes. The characters were well thought out and interesting.

My complaint with the story is that it moved somewhat slowly. Specifically, the author spent time on details that were of less importance, but didn't spend enough time of details that are important. For example, I would like to know how/why Shorran was corrupted. Also, I would have liked to know more about the water people and Nyad. Furthermore, I could not really get a true sense of the size of the Nuruth and Chrysos. I think the only description relevant to size for the black wolf was that the riders were 8 feet from the ground on his back.

Despite my complaint, I recommend this book as a good read that is safe for young adults as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars beautiful imagery September 16, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Eon's Door begins in the true spirit of epic fantasy with pages of world maps, character lists and descriptions. The story follows a myriad of characters and their role in finding the portal key that joins their old world with the new, both in current day and several millennia ago. It has a captivating storyline with a lovely surprise at the end; 4.5 stars out of 5.

There is a lot of adventure in this book, with many battles, and I enjoyed how the story diverged from the typical with much of the warfare taking place between animals (and trees) instead of people. It had a Lord of the Rings type feel regarding the key (that has gone missing) and the sage who stole it; the key corrupts him to do evil and calls to him. The multiple clans and main characters from each kept the action going and provided a lot of history. I particularly liked the part of the story told through Miann as he relives his father's memories from 2000 years ago when his father and company were on a quest to flee the world of humans; a story that parallels his own.

The writing is solid and detailed and the author keeps up a good level of conflict, however I found it a little slow in the last half of the book. The story may have benefited from some of the more superfluous smaller conflicts/description being taken out. However, I feel I should stress this is a matter of personal taste; the author creates compelling storylines, I just thought there were a few too many.

On a side note, I would have liked more explanation initially when Amor sends Miann on his quest to the Old World--just a page or so. Miann seems confused as to what is going on and as a reader I wanted a bit more history at this point.

3.0 out of 5 stars Promising Author November 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book was a bit confusing in the beginning. There were so many players, be it individuals or clans, that I would have to pause a moment in order to remember who they were and just what part they played in the story. I don't know if it was because the story actual began to make more sense or if I just eventually straightened everyone out in my head, but it finally came together. Otherwise, I was impressed with the talent shown by a newer author. I do believe he has a future as an author.

5.0 out of 5 stars My review doesn't do it justice!! December 2, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
For any fan of fantasy books this one should be added to your collection. There are many different aspects to this book, and I believe it would be enjoyed by anyone regardless of age.

I really enjoyed the deep sense of duty, responsibility, honor and respect that the characters embody and express towards one another. There is also a strong emphasis on the respect and reverence one should have for all of nature, not unlike some of the ideals of Native American culture.

That being said, if you just want to read about giant wolves, eagles, and a marching forest of evil trees all doing battle amongst themselves as well as others this is still the book for you.

I received a complimentary copy of this book for my review.

4.0 out of 5 stars A little confusing, but excellent April 28, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story started out slow and confusing. It was difficult to tell what was a flashback and what was supposed to be the present. It didn't take long for that problem to be corrected, but then more confusion arose. Certain elements of the story were extremely difficult to grasp and they left me wondering if there was a book before this one that I had somehow missed. Luckily, the plot was good enough that I didn't give up on it. The confusing elements were later explained, and the story was captivating. It was a pleasant read, showing how two people from totally different worlds (literally) can work together and accomplish something great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Fantasy Novel April 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a delightful novel. This story contains a multitude of fantasy creatures who ultimately have to work together to destroy a threat to them all. The key to destroying this threat lives through a door to another world, earth. The target audience for this book is young teenagers, but even as an adult I enjoyed the story. There is so much action and adventure in this book and a surprising ending. I would definately recommend this book.
