Reviews - What do customers think about The Door Within: The Door Within Trilogy - Book One?
This book was amazing! Oct 3, 2008
The Door Within is the first in a trilogy of fantasy books for middle-age readers. If your kids are fans of C.S. Lewis's The Chronicles of Narnia, they (and maybe even you) will probably love these books as well. The story is not too hard to follow, but is still masterfully woven together. The characters are very lovable and reading about their friendly antics is quite entertaining. It has great moral lessons and doesn't include the inappropriate material other books in this age group may have. The spiritual undertones in the book can be very much appreciated by believers, and maybe get unbelievers asking questions about God. This book is a wonderful fantasy tale that's perfect for kids from middle school to adult!

The Door Within Dec 22, 2007
When Aidan had to move from his best friend in Maryland to live with his Grandpa in Colorado Aidan thought it would be the worst summer of his life, but he was wrong. While searching his grandpa's basement he found three ancient scrolls that, with the help of his grandpa, lead Aidan on the adventure of a life time. Aidan entered the Realm and found that a city was endangered be the evil knight, Paragor. After Aidan became the 12th knight the Elder guard set of to save Mithegard. This book is a great picture of the love of God for men and the hatred of those against him. This is a great book if you are into adventures and knights. I recommend this book to everyone who loves to reads books and to those who do not.
Thrilling! Dec 19, 2007
I just finished rereading "The Door Within" and discovered once again why I have become a HUGE Wayne Thomas Batson fan! From the very beginning of the book you are hooked into an amazing fantasy adventure! This book is filled with thrills and most importatly contains a very strong Christian message.
the Trilogy and beyond..... Dec 10, 2007
The Door Within was recommended as an advanced reading option to my son the summer after grade 4. We both read it, and then ordered the other three the complete the trilogy. The read was facinating, challenging and entertaining to both of us (ages 10 to 40). The only drawback was the shipping time which had my son RUNNING to the front door each day to see if the books had arrived.
If I could give the trilogy more than five stars, I would! The adventure was perfect to keep a boy's interest, and the storyline was an inspiration and helped put abstract concepts into a better perspective for our generation.
Long live the One True King!
KCS An Awesome Adventure! Dec 8, 2007
"Aidan was certain that before him stood The Door Within, and it was time to open it. Hands slightly trembling he grasped the silver ring and tugged it to open the door. It was difficult to budge, at first. But Aidan looked up at the graven image of the sun rising between the twin mountains. The image seemed to inject hope into Aidan's heart. It's all true, Aidan thought. And in that moment, the door came free and began to swing open. Brilliant golden light streamed out as if millions of stars were hiding behind it. Aidan released the ring and the door opened the rest of the way on its own. Aidan shielded his eyes with both arms from the fierce, pure light. He had a strange feeling that Grampin was watching him. Aidan smiled as he walked through The Door Within." Aidan is a very artistic teenager. He was considered the "weird kid" who collected medieval figurines at his school, until his best friend, Robby Pierson, moved to his school. Robby Pierson was the "cool kid" and for some odd reason wanted to be Aidan's friend. Then his life turned around until he moved from Maryland to California to take care of his grandfather, Grampin. Aidan hated his grandpa for that and wanted so much to get away from him until he found scrolls in the basement. They described the Kingdom of Allebe, the evil Paragory, and how King Eliam was killed by Paragor to save his people. Aidan believed the story was true. However, the only other person who believed was his grampin. Grampin showed Aidan the way to The Door Within where he traveled into another realm of knights, dragons, and glimpses who could travel in and out of the worlds. He then becomes a knight in training and must complete a mission with 11 other knights before he can return to his own world. This fantasy fiction book teaches one that even during the most difficult times God is always with you and our only need is to trust God. King Eliam is representing God in that He gave His life to save us. Wayne Thomas Batson adds exitement and suspense to this story by leaving readers to find out what will happen with Aidan and his quest to see where he is headed and the scary obstacles that lie ahead. I would recommend this book to readers who like fantasy tales about dragons and knights, and also to people who love suspense and action. The Door Within was one of the greatest books I have read, and I am eager to read his sequels to this book.
