    Okay No offense to the author, but this book was not as good as it could have been I love Christian fiction as a rule, but this waswell, it wasn t Tolkien Lewis standard The symbolism was a little heavy No, that was a lie It was akin to being thwacked over the head with a hard cover Bible In my mind, there are two pieces of advice that every allegory writer must have A Plot and writing that s good quality separate from the Biblical references Case in point The Chronicles of Narnia Okay No offense to the author, but this book was not as good as it could have been I love Christian fiction as a rule, but this waswell, it wasn t Tolkien Lewis standard The symbolism was a little heavy No, that was a lie It was akin to being thwacked over the head with a hard cover Bible In my mind, there are two pieces of advice that every allegory writer must have A Plot and writing that s good quality separate from the Biblical references Case in point The Chronicles of Narnia If you aren t Christian, you can read the books with enjoyment If the only redeeming feature of your book is the Christian allegory, you ve got a problem B Be subtle If you have a symbol in your text, you don t have to change your tone completely to point it out If someone doesn t get it, that s okay If they do note the symbol, that s good But we re going for subliminal, here.The Door Within Trilogy again, no offense meant, and I m trying to be tactful has neither of these It slikely to scare off non Christians than draw them in It almost scared me off So my suggestion is worry less about everybody getting the symbols and worryabout writing a book that people will enjoy.This review is pretty much the same for all the books in this series

    Well Wow I thought I would like this book, but I didn t expect to enjoy it that much Sure, it doesn t beat books like Lord of the Rings or The Chronicles of Narnia, but it was really enjoyable If I had to describe this book as if it were a person, I would say it was perky, fun, and intriguing.The GoodThere were soooo many unique ideas in this story Fantasy books can have a lot of clich s, and of course this one has some, but there are plenty of unique ideas that help offset that Moonrascal Well Wow I thought I would like this book, but I didn t expect to enjoy it that much Sure, it doesn t beat books like Lord of the Rings or The Chronicles of Narnia, but it was really enjoyable If I had to describe this book as if it were a person, I would say it was perky, fun, and intriguing.The GoodThere were soooo many unique ideas in this story Fantasy books can have a lot of clich s, and of course this one has some, but there are plenty of unique ideas that help offset that Moonrascals are awesome can I please have one , Falon was AMAZINGLY AWESOME view spoiler She can make herself look like a glittering maze That s just plain cool hide spoiler , and I loved the idea of Glimpses Lantern spiders, mortiwraith poison I felt like there was a lot in this story that I hadn t seen before The world and the characters were really intriguing, too Eyes flashing colors, Mallik with his Mjolnir like hammer, Bolt and Nock Captain Valithor was really cool, as were many of the other characters.I loved how funny this book was It was tense, but light, mostly because it s middle grade ish instead of YA It was a great relief from a lot of those fantasy books that arefocused on world and fighting and suspense and death and romance and such The BadSome of the characters could have used a littledevelopment, and a few places were pretty predictable But if you re look for a light, fun read, this is it The UglyNothing truly bad here, mostly minor violence view spoiler Several characters we love die hide spoiler Overall, I really, really enjoyed this book, and had fun reading it Now, if you ll excuse me, I must go read Winter

    When I first found out about The Door Within Trilogy while I was working at the local bookstore a couple years ago, I have to admit, it didn t grab my attention For some odd reason, which I can t even recall now, I thought it might be a little too juvenile for me Boy, I don t think I ll ever judge a book so quickly again Being the Christian fantasy fan that I am, I finally got the books from the library and from page one I was completely hooked The entire trilogy had me reading almost non st When I first found out about The Door Within Trilogy while I was working at the local bookstore a couple years ago, I have to admit, it didn t grab my attention For some odd reason, which I can t even recall now, I thought it might be a little too juvenile for me Boy, I don t think I ll ever judge a book so quickly again Being the Christian fantasy fan that I am, I finally got the books from the library and from page one I was completely hooked The entire trilogy had me reading almost non stop and when I d finished, I had to buy my own set to read again I don t think any fiction series has impacted me like The Door Within I read the trilogy to my youngest brother who is not a big fan of fiction In the beginning, Ior less forced him to sit down and listen, but soon he was coming to me, begging me to readEven now, months later, he still talks to me about different scenes in the book Like me, he was deeply affected by the story One of my favorite aspects of the trilogy is the characters and their growth They are so endearing and diverse, and you really feel for them and their struggles The allegorical and spiritual parts of the books are amazing Once you finish, you have a deep sense of longing to be a knight for the one true King, to stand firm in what is right no matter the cost, and grow in your faith The books are a wonderful example of friendship, sacrifice, faith, and growth There is also a perfect amount of humor that had me and my brother laughing out loud numerous times I recommend The Door Within to anyone of any age who enjoys a good adventure story with a great message woven in And they are excellent read aloud books

    I wanted to like this book I did Unfortunately, I thought it continued to illustrate the problems with the Christian fiction publishing industry It was not so much the story I had a problem with, but the prose was less than stellar, and the character development wasn t up to snuff Repeatedly I found myself puzzled by character decisions that seemed to make no sense I didn t get the wonder I was obviously supposed to get by having a boy stumble into a magical world Nothing actually happens I wanted to like this book I did Unfortunately, I thought it continued to illustrate the problems with the Christian fiction publishing industry It was not so much the story I had a problem with, but the prose was less than stellar, and the character development wasn t up to snuff Repeatedly I found myself puzzled by character decisions that seemed to make no sense I didn t get the wonder I was obviously supposed to get by having a boy stumble into a magical world Nothing actually happens in the first hundred pages and Batson breaks the cardinal rule of fiction, which is don t info dump your backstory Yet we re treated to the entire backstory in two entire chapters in a row where the author is literally telling us everything that happened Big no no So I missed the wonder of this book but I wish I hadn t As I say, I really wanted to like this book Younger kids will probably enjoy it anyway

    Derived Revenge of the Nerds meets The Hobbit A good if hardly original concept, but Batson should have worked harder though he claims it took him thirteen years making it his own work Reads like a dashed off ripoff of Christian classic fantasy with too much Narnia, Middle Earth overlap.Reminds you why J R R Tolkien hated allegory Speaking of whom, Tolkien would be angered as he was with C S Lewis at the way Batson misused mythology Specifically, the insertion of unicorns as hor Derived Revenge of the Nerds meets The Hobbit A good if hardly original concept, but Batson should have worked harder though he claims it took him thirteen years making it his own work Reads like a dashed off ripoff of Christian classic fantasy with too much Narnia, Middle Earth overlap.Reminds you why J R R Tolkien hated allegory Speaking of whom, Tolkien would be angered as he was with C S Lewis at the way Batson misused mythology Specifically, the insertion of unicorns as horse substitutes just to give the story an other flavor but without regard to the history and mythology of unicorns is exactly what drove Tolkien up the wall about Lewis s sloppy mixing and matching of myths in Narnia And Batson is no Lewis To learn , read Tolkein s On Fairy Stories in The Tolkien Reader.Having his short, pudgy hero transformed into a sword wielding hero in a week pushes even the credibility of the teen nerds who seem to be the target audience.Batson researched Medieval technology and terminology but seems unaware of his gaffs in time and travel is that why he substituted unicorns for the horses who would have died attempting the travel feats chronicled , not to mention having too dense a population in too small a world.Not sure I d read the follow on novels

    Several years ago, a friend recommendedThe Door Withinto me I decided to pick it up at the library, and was smart enough to get the consecutive books as well From the first chapter, I was hooked I read the entire trilogy in a few days and couldn t put the series down Since then, I ve read several of Wayne Thomas Batson s other books and loved them.InThe Door Within , teenager Aidan Thomas is frustrated with his parent s decision to move the family halfway across the country He misses Several years ago, a friend recommendedThe Door Withinto me I decided to pick it up at the library, and was smart enough to get the consecutive books as well From the first chapter, I was hooked I read the entire trilogy in a few days and couldn t put the series down Since then, I ve read several of Wayne Thomas Batson s other books and loved them.InThe Door Within , teenager Aidan Thomas is frustrated with his parent s decision to move the family halfway across the country He misses his best friend and isn t exactly thrilled to be living with his crazy grandfather Soon Aidan finds an ancient scroll in his grandfather s basement and finds himself transported to a magical world filled with knights, dragons, and castles Oh, yeah, and a power hungry man with ambitions to take over the kingdomThe Door Withinis just plain ol fun to read It s a great mix of adventure, sword fights, betrayal, friendship, suspense, and comic relief Sure, the silly antics and witty banter can feel a bit cheesy at times, but in a good way.But beneath the action and humor lies spiritual truthThe Door Withinis an allegory in the same vein as C.S LewisThe Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobeone of my all time favorite books I love how the book reminds us to have faith even we can t see God and it s hard to know for certain He s there The characters frequently remind each other that when it seems like the battle can t be won, they re never alone.I love that reminder.I ve read the entire trilogy multiple times, and I highly recommend it to anyone who loves allegorical fantasy or just a fun, imaginative adventure Oh and it s also one of those rare cases where each book is even better than the last Review originally found on my blog

    This was a good fantasy action adventure young adult novel Some of the situations stretched believability just a bit, but I put that down to the intended audience s attention span and naivety The story is a Christian allegory, done very well It s almost as good as The Book of Three by Lloyd Alexander This was a good fantasy action adventure young adult novel Some of the situations stretched believability just a bit, but I put that down to the intended audience s attention span and naivety The story is a Christian allegory, done very well It s almost as good as The Book of Three by Lloyd Alexander

    Saw this trilogy recommended by a friend on Facebook, and it struck my interest It was very readable, and could be enjoyed by both adults and children at a sixth grade reading level and above It s Christian fantasy, comparable to the Chronicles of Narnia, and is also an allegory of the battle between God s forces and those of darkness, and the struggle for those who have not decided in some ways it reminded me of Pilgrim s Progress Looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
