Book title: The Door Within (The Door Within Trilogy #1)
Author: Wayne Thomas Batson
Starting age: 13
Aidan Thomas is disgusted with how his life is going. He’s had to move across away from his best (and only) friend, he knows no one in town, and he’s saddled with his wheelchair-bound grandfather. And the nightmares he’s having aren’t adding anything pleasant to the situation either.
But when scrolls suddenly appear, Aidan can’t help but read them. Scoffed by his parents, he keeps quiet, but the scrolls are ever present in his mind.
Aidan takes a step of faith and enters into a world he never knew existed – a world on the brink of war.
Aidan learns respect for his grandfather, and finds that even a fraidy-cat teenager like him can be used by the King for the greatest of purposes.
Aidan is disrespectful about his grandfather.
4 out of 5
The Door Within is an attention grabber. I devoured this book and reluctantly allowed it to leave my hands so that my dad could read it. This book will keep you up all night finishing it.
Batson has crafted this book so that when you’re done reading it, you can barely contain your curiosity as to what happens next. The Door Within is a book that, no matter how many times you read it, will never get old.
After I read a good book, I have a hard time coping with reality. ~ Unknown
