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.
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. ...more

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, ...more
"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 ...more
