I really enjoyed this book, and I think teen boys would especially like it. The excitement starts from the first, and keeps you turning pages. It's about a teenaged boy who has to move away from his best friend, and wonders if there will ever be any more adventures in his life. One day, he goes thru a "door" to another realm and has the adventure of a lifetime. This is the first of a trilogy. I like the other world king's name...Eliam. At the end of the book, you get to read some of the chapters that were cut, and the authors comments about them. Very interesting. It's clean fantasy adventure, and I would recommend this book to anyone.
I am in eighth grade and writing this review for school. The Door Within is an exciting, adventurous book. The book starts off with a boy named Aiden Thomas, who finds some ancient scrolls in his grandfather's basement. Aiden starts reading the scrolls , and he is sucked into the story! During his quest he must save his friends by fighting the evil and traitorous enemy Paragal. Paragal was once a trusted knight of King Eliam, who ruled the kingdom of Alleble. Paragal wanted to be king so bad that he killed King Eliam. That makes him a traitorous and evil knight. Now Aiden must fight Paragal and kill him, in order to save his friends from Paragal's army. Then he must restore peace throughout both kingdoms (Alleble and Paragory). When he is done, he must return to his homeland and help people believe in the story. If they believe in the story, at the end of the world they will have eternal life at a place called Beyond The Sun. If people don't believe they will go to the dungeons beneath the Prince's Crown.

The book was exciting to read even though the end of it is sad. The book was exciting to read because there is a lot of action, fighting and secrets. I really liked this book because it is similar to what the Bible tells us. When we die we go to heaven and live eternally or we go to hell and live for eternity. Aiden Thomas gave up his life for King Eliam and we are to put our life in God's hands.
I've read a lot of fantasy, and this one probably ranks in my top 10-20. The first scene... Wayne Thomas Batson know how to write an excellent first scene to grab your attention.

The beginning of the story starts out rather slow, but it begins to pick up as the story goes on.

After the beginning was past, I was drawn further and further into the story, and WTB's imagination is incredible. The book began pulling me in for an awesome ride.

Humor, action, plot twists, swordfighting, and an unexpected and devastating attack; it's all in this book. Pick this up and you won't put it back down.

All in all, despite a slow beginning, and being rather rough around the edges, The Door Within was a great and gripping read, with plenty of action and emotion for all.
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!
We have a 6th & 7th grader reading this series right now and they both LOVE it!!
I was so taken and captivated by this book that when I would hit the end of a chapter and beam that wasn't the part of the book and I was really just reading it. Batson did a truly awesome job bringing the power and story of Jesus into this book. It was so thoroughly entertaining and emotionally moving that it gave me many second winds and I found myself staying up way too late. I would recommend this book to any who have ears to hear
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!
Looks like I will enjoy it more if I can get beyond this stupid review page I hate review pages please let me get to the rest of the book
