Book Description


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 have passed since the three clans fled the world of humans through Eon's Door to find sanctuary in a realm called Erla, and now 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 and close 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 expecting 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 Epic fantasy adventure June 15, 2012
I received a free copy of the book through a contest, and after reading the summary I was eager to begin the story. As a lover of fantasy novels, this held the promise of everything I enjoy reading--a new world, new creatures, quests, and special talents (telepathy). McKenney thoroughly thought through these elements and the result is wonderful adventure story.

Before the story begins, McKenney provides a map of the Erlan world as well as a list of the main characters. This really helps readers to understand the new setting and to keep track of which main characters are part of which clan. Each clan can communicate with different parts of nature--either animals, trees/plants, water/aquatic life, or all three.

McKenney definitely has the ability to paint with his words and allows readers to "see" his world clearly. Characters and landscapes are brought to life. He creates an epic style story where characters must travel to far off places while braving dangerous creatures so they can retreive an artifact--in this case a key-- in order to defeat an evil foe.

Althouh the story is geared to kids/teens, adults can get a lot out of the story as well. I would recommend this book to fans of J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings series.
