Teen Christian: The Door Within by Wayne Thomas Batson

About the Book: The Door Within chronicles the adventures of Aiden Thomas within a magical alternate reality known as "The Realm". Aiden is enlisted to fight against the forces of evil and help the Glimpse (the humanoid alteregos of real people) decide to side with King Eliam, the Godlike king of Alleble.

The King's Ruling: I went in hoping for C.S. Lewis and came out disappointed with a the Book of Revelation with some of the names changed. If you do not want to have to think about a story and just enjoy obvious biblical parallel this book and series (The Door Within is book 1 of a 3 part series) is for you. While there was some imagination to the story and Batson creates a world of great beauty contrasted with supreme evil, he largely sacrifices the quality of the plot for an emphasis on his message. I give this book a 2 out of 10.

Spoilers(Highlight to read):--->If you have ever read any of the bible, then there is nothing that I could spoil for you in this book<---
