This series is a favorite of our family. My children (10 and 13) have enjoyed reading aloud all the books in the series and we are now locating the audio books for additional fun! ( )

I couldn't bring myself to give this one five stars. It seemed that the plot gave out in parts. Mr. B's writing didn't seem to grab me as much in this book. Still a good read. ( )

This is one of my all time favorite books! The story picks up were 'The Door Within' left off.

On the first day of school Aidan's life looks poor. He is back on earth and no one believes him when he tells them about Alleble. Robby isn't returning his e-mails and his Grampin is dead. Can his life get any worse?

Then he meets a girl named Antoinette. Who is this blue eyed microscope?

I LOVE this book and the main reason is because of the characters. Wayne T. Batson is gifted in creating GREAT characters that you have to love.

GREAT book! I would recommend this and all his books in a moment. ( )

After returning from his adventures in the Realm never to return (somehow, I doubt that) Aiden Thomas is just settling back into life on Earth when he meets Antionette Reed: a feisty red-headed goth swords-maiden who is soon pulled through the Door Within as King Eliam's next choice for heroism in the Realm.

Wayne Thomas Batson takes his trilogy to the next level with the introduction of several incredible new characters and much improved writing quality, as well as jacking up the suspense with (to name a few) the hideous Seven Sleepers (apperently not so sleepy anymore), the horribly creepy Wyrm Lord and an underground labyrinth of giant man-eating spiders.

Does fantasy get any more awesome than this? I doubt it. Unless, of course, Mr. Batson works some serious overtime on book three.

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 allegory, enough to inspire and appeal to Christian readers, yet not so much that the books would be termed "preachy" by most non-Christians. It would still be a marvelous book even without these themes.

This is also a welcome addition to the book world because, by almost all standards, it is clean. I have tried many other fantasy tales and been sorely disappointed by inappropriate words and references.

This book is emotional, as well. Beloved characters die, yet even in those times, there is hope...

I will mention that its main downside would be, in my opinion, the fact that there were a grammar issues that I found distracting. Nonetheless, I enjoyed the plot and characters so much that I still am giving this book all five stars.

Super-powered dragons, knights, damsels in distress, spies, sword duels, and wolvins. Find all this and more... if you dare to learn of the Rise of the Wyrm Lord.

WARNING: As a fellow victim, I feel obligated to inform you: should you reach the end of this book, you will find yourself completely incapable of NOT reading the next one. You might as well order the Final Storm right now.
