My thoughts:

An interesting plot calls for an interesting read. And that is precisely what Dream Treaders offers. The reader will be transported to the land of dreams in a way never imagined: from annoying rifts, a cute creature named Razz, to the dreaded and evil Nightmare Lord. Dream Treaders was a fantastic read – one that held me captivated.

The book leaves the readers at a suspenseful cliffhanger, and one can’t help but wonder… what will happen next.

The Nightmare Lord raised the axe higher, and then it came plunging down.

My thoughts:

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.
