From Booklist

Fourteen-year-old Prissie Pomeroy leads an ordinary existence, chatting with her somewhat shallow friends, making plans to attend the county fair, and enjoying time with her family. Everything changes, however, when she realizes she can see angels—as in, celestial beings walking the planet. Suddenly, the young farm girl’s life is turned upside down as she discovers she is a key player in a spiritual battle being waged on earth. Her Observer, Koji, is startled when he realizes Prissie can see him as a young human teen, although he remains invisible to other earthly eyes. Prissie begins to lean on him for advice and support, even though at times she feels she doesn’t need it. Kinde’s world building is strongest in her angel characters, each of whom has a distinct personality, much like the humans they watch. Less praiseworthy is that none of her angels are female, which might have provided more interest to girl readers. The language and plot of this first title in a series are well geared toward middle-graders, and the positive Christian message may please some parents. Grades 6-8. --Julie Trevelyan

I really enjoyed this book. I have purchased the other three to read. I have read a lot of material including books form the great like Frank Peretti. This is an excellent book. It is written to a younger crowd but as a 46 year old ministers wife I quite enjoyed the simplicity, yet wonderful descriptions. It was very refreshing from such a innocent stand point. If you like spiritual warfare but aren't wanting to be overwhelmed this is a great read. I have been fighting discouragement from a prolonged sickness and this book was quite refreshing and reminded me that I am never alone. Please give it a try. The author has done a great job.

I like this series because Prissie is a normal person with normal, human reactions. I think all too often, Christian fiction writers tend to portray their characters as abnormally "good" people. Although we do strive to be Christ-like, we are not perfect. Looking forward to the next book!

Having read several of the reviews on this book, I agree that the story moves slowly and not much action happens. Book 1 is a set up for the rest of the series. I love the story idea - angels all around us, protecting us in spiritual warfare. The large family of Prissie's and the large number of angels make it difficult to keep track of who's who. A middle grade reader will have the same problem. If you're planning to buy the series, go for it. I think all books together will make a satisfying read.

My teen daughter and I read this book and both loved it. Below is my teen's review: The Blue Door was an excellent opening to the Threshold Series. The introduction and growth of the characters was very well done and the plot was intriguing. The main character, Prissie, grew over the length of the book and the development of her relationship with Koji and the other angels was one of the greatest parts of the Blue Door. I loved how each of the characters, including the angels, were different and interesting in their own way.
It was suspenseful while remaining an easy read and everything was well explained. It was surprisingly informational. Even though the book is written for a younger/teen audience, I think even adults would enjoy reading this interesting take on young adult Christian fiction.

I expected so much more from this book, and I am a little disappointed with it. This is an older book, but it has been sitting in my Netgalley for a while, it is also the start to a series. I was hoping to love this book - as I do with most things I read but this one fell short.

The plot of this book is that Priscilla (Prissie) can see angels and there is a reason for it... sadly we do not find out what that reason is, nor is there ANY action what-so-ever involving our main characters. We meet a bunch of angels throughout the book but none of them really do anything. I guess this being the first in a series there is a lot more to come BUT I didn't like this installment enough to continue with the series - so alas I will never know.

Also, Prissie reads between a 10-14 year old and that is a big age difference for a character. I kept feeling like she was a lot younger than she was supposed to be. I couldn't get a good feel for her real age and only know it because of the synopsis.

I think that this book might be great for someone who enjoys the lore of angels but it was not for me. I think it spent too much time referring to the Bible and to the angels faithfulness rather than creating a plot that was engaging. There really was no plot to this- yes, Prissie can see angels and yes, she meets a good amount of them but the reader doesn't get anything other than that... the war the synopsis mentions is not in this book.

This book was a personal page-turner for me. I have to restrain myself here because I do not want to spoil anything for those who haven't read yet!

The characters were incredibly relatable, the world was wonderfully portrayed, (I could visualize everything! There was a perfect amount of detail!) and one of the strongest points of this book is that there is a balanced amount of supernatural and natural. There was also a great amount of depth to our main heroin! Despite her adventures, she is still a normal girl with the same kind of problems and worries that we all have.

Not only that, but the peek we get in on her family's antics is simply darling, and refreshing to read about!

I am very excited to find out what happens in the next book! Five stars!!

I have always wondered how angels work. This may not be it but it sure is an interesting and engaging example of what might be happening. I wouldn't mind having a guardian angel especially if he was like the ones in this book.
