The Door Within is one of those books you just do not want to end. Although the reader forms a bond with a few of the characters, the real bond for the reader is to the realm beyond The Door Within. Wayne Thomas Batson does a wonderful job of transporting the reader into the realm's land and cultures, enticing the reader to want to stay in the lands longer. The Door Within will be added to the top of my list for teen readers. It can be enjoyed by any teen, but Christian teens will see more into the King than others will.
One extra addition beyond a normal review is that this is one of the best manufactured hardcovers I have seen. Hats off to the publisher, Tommy Nelson, for doing a superb job in the production of this book. Everything from the dustjacket to the papers used for binding the hardcover and within the book are excellent.Read more ›
Arriving into the land he had read about, Aidan finds himself chosen as the Twelfth Knight, selected by the King himself to defend their land of Alleble against Paragor. Paragor had once been the King's own Sentinel but in his greed for more power and knowledge, he turned on King. Accepting his position to fight against this evil, Aidan is quickly trained, along with the other eleven Knights, by the King's new Sentinel, Captain Valithor, in preparation for their future mission.
The Door Within has strong allegorical parallels with Biblical stories, which is fairly obvious throughout the book. The characters in the book were not quite as developed as I felt they could have been, but they still had a realistic feel to them. Overall, however, this book was an enjoyable read. The Door Within is a great beginning to, what looks to be, a well-written trilogy.
