First things first: Did anyone else want to run out and take up sword fighting/archery/erm, dragon riding after reading this, you know, just in case? :)

I rarely enjoy Christian fiction. Typically, I find it to be sub-par and just too about Christianity, and not so much about plot. Wayne Thomas Batson obliterates this pattern (for me). Both The Door Within and Rise of the Wyrm Lord were excellent, but for some reason, the final book in the series really blew it all out of the water for me.

A dynamic ending to the Door Within Trilogy… I think The Final Storm deserves five stars. It definitely did NOT end how I expected it to; but it was incredible anyway! The very last paragraph just makes me smile again and again. :)

So The Final Storm takes off right where The Rise of the Wyrm Lord ends. An accident, a conversion, an escape… Two more humans come from the Mirror Realm to join Antoinette in the Glimpse Realm. Dramatic battles ensue. Dear friends see their end. Giant spiders attack.

Okay...whoa...! Loved this series! It was TOO SHORT! Wish it had been longer! Unexpected ending. It was sad but beautiful and hopeful! Lots of deep meaning in this series! Liked Dreamtreaders better, but this was really good too! There were some Tolkien-ish elements but still had a distinct flavor! WELL DONE, Wayne Thomas Batson!

I read the door within trilogy and just recently finished the last book. The story was amazing. when I read the first book I knew that I would end up reading the whole trilogy. The author really had me hooked on the second book seeing grow up and meet new people along the way. I finished the third book on Tuesday of this week and it was a blast. The story was absolutely amazing and it is sad that it was the end of the trilogy because I became attached to the characters throughout the entire book ...more

NOOO!!!!! The Door Within series is done! I have finished! It was marvelous. I loved it just as much as the first two! Wayne Thomas Batson, is a wonderful Author. If anyone was to have the title Author, it is him.

Wow. This book is great. Enough battles and peril to satisfy the adventure-lover, enough secrets to satisfy the mystery-lover, and enough coolness to satisfy the... well, cool-lover!

All around great. Granted, some might see it as "just another fantasy book", but it most certainly has characteristics that distinguish it from others in its genre.

For instance, there is an unlikely connection between Earth and The Realm... but I won't spoil that for you. :-D Also, there is a good dose of Biblical al

I just finished the 3rd and last book of The Door Within trilogy and i know these books are amazing, you've got to be crazy not to like these books! I hated books because i would read the back and enjoy it, then when i read the book I'm disappointed because i did not like the book. I didn't know if i could trust these books either but I'm glad i did. Some people think that as you get older you become less creative, clearly Wayne Thomas Batson has proven many people wrong. I found many creative a ...more

I just love the way this series finishes. It's so fantastically perfect.
This is the final book in the series. It moves at a good pace, overall. There is a lot, and I do mean, a lot, going on in the book. There are some pretty crazy situations in it, and some borderline Deus ex Machina situations (which were kinda appropriate, considering it being a Christian allegory hahahah). The character development was decent in this book; there are numerous secondary and tertiary characters introduced, so it would have been hard to develop much of the lower-tier characters, let ...more

ok. I wasn't overly impressed with the first two books of this series, mainly the writing style, and while it wasn't really improved upon in my personal taste, the story that comes out in this book is really quite good. Batson proved to have a pretty good understanding of what the christian life is and what it is about. The last third of the book, based upon Revelations, was actually very well done and we see even why things are allowed to happen as they do, not for our own personal glory, but f ...more

This trilogy really left a good impression on my middle school self. I fell in love with the characters and the story right from the start, and the biblical parallels only increased my love for this series. Rereading these books several years later was difficult because I have come to like different styles of writing. However, the story was just as good as I remembered and I would not hesitate to recommend these books to my fellow bookworms.

I'm giving this entire series an overall 3/5 stars. It was pretty good. Nothing shocked or surprised me, everything was pretty much expected and predictable. But, I enjoyed it nonetheless. The main selling point for this trilogy I'd say is the characters. However, I wish this book was just a little bit more "fantasy" with magic and creatures. Also, the books could essentially be shortened by about half and still tell the same story which is a little frustrating. Overall, I'm glad I read it,

Pros: Wow! This was a fantastic end to "The Door Within" series.

"The Final Storm" was jam packed full of action and suspense. It was anything but a dull read!
It brought the events from the first two books to full circle. I felt like I got to know the three main characters, Aiden, Antoinette, and Robby, and other side characters better. There were several touching scenes that brought tears to my eyes.
Overall I really, really enjoyed "The Door Within" trilogy.

Cons: Nothing much, really. It was

I love this story and what it stands for. That being said, I feel like this final book rushed at the end. The build up was really good however, everything came together very quickly, too quickly. Other than that it was a great series.
Nice culmination of the story. Glad the author kept it a trilogy instead of trying to add string out the story. God themes - believing in King Eliam was a little much.

Pretty good wrap up of a theologically sound Christian allegory. The white lion chronicles, the chiveis trilogy, and the Peleg chronicles are all better though.

The conclusion to the Door Within Trilogy - a story of redemption. Some of the plot development made some leaps but still a good adventure. Teens should like.

Imprisoned in the fortress of Paragor, Antoinette Reed still tries desperately to convince Kearn that Paragor’s promises are empty. Meanwhile, Aidan loans the Scrolls to Robby in hopes that they will convince him that The Realm is real and that King Eliam is the one to follow. But Robby is not easy to convince. In The Realm, Kaliam readies Alleble for the assault by Paragor’s forces that is sure to come, bringing all of those loyal to King Eliam under the protection of the city’s walls. But with ...more

A fine ending to the series, and I especially liked how Robby's adventures are different than Aidan's and Antoinette's, since he at first was under the influence of another well-developed character, the human mirror-image of Paragor's trusty and ruthless lieutenant Rucifel. This allows a more interesting and engaging subplot than Robby simply "becoming" good.

The multiple story lines revolving around the main characters are all interesting and intertwined together well. Also, the characters in th
