Book Review: The Door Within
TITLE: The Door Within Trilogy Book 1: The Door Within
AUTHOR: Wayne Thomas Batson
GENRE: childrens, trilogy, fantasy
PREMISE: Aiden finds a door to a magical kingdom and goes on an adventure.
MY REVIEW: If you try to picture Lord of the Rings mashed up with The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe...you pretty much have this book. It's like every other quest story that I've seen and therefore it's just not that memorable or interesting to me. I will most likely not be picking up the second book.
Kids however, may get a kick out of it. So if you are looking for a book to give boys or fantasy buffs in general then this may be a book for them to take a look at.
WHO SHOULD READ: elementary/middle school boys looking for fantasy books to read
RATING: Three out of Five knights
