Book Review: The Door Within Trilogy

For the next few weeks, I'm going to do a series of book reviews on some of my favorite books. I'll start with the series that first got me interested in fantasy: The Door Within Trilogy by Wayne Thomas Batson.

The Door Within Trilogy is a Christian fantasy series, written in the allegorical style of The Chronicles of Narnia, but with a modern twist. Young Aidan Thomas, the main character of the series, is about to enter high school when he discovers three mysterious scrolls in his basement. They beckon him to another world of knights, dragons, and war, and he finds himself wrapped up in a dangerous mission: to save the kingdom of Mithegard from the evil clutches of Paragory.

The trilogy continues with Aidan, Antionette, and Robby, as each young teen has a turn in the adventures of the mirror world. The books are filled with action, mystery, and peril, and I found them impossible to put down. Christians will love the clear allegory and good Biblical messages, and any reader will enjoy the nail-biting, page-turning suspense that keeps you up late at night; waiting to find out what happens next. A surprising twist at the end wraps up a rewarding, worthwhile read. I highly recommend this series!
