Mostly what I liked about this book is the allegorical message. As far as characters, there isn't anything really new or amazing. The setting is interesting and the alliances for the upcoming war prove the author spent some time with world building.
Most of the "plot twists" were easy for me to predict. This isn't unusual. I'm a writer and a voracious reader. If you can trick me and have the proper groundwork in place to back up your twist, I'm impressed.
For me, the allegory is too plain here. I

Once again James Somers has not disappointed. This story is about Daniel, a young boy who doesn't know who he is and is dragged into another world to help defeat Mortis who wants to wage war. He meets up with several characters who he befriends and they help him as he helps them on their journeys. Definately a great start to another fantastic series.

I was pleasantly surprised by Mr. Somers book, 'A World Within'. The story of a young boy who struggles with his belief. I will not go into further detail of exactly what happens, I highly recommend you read this book.
The character development was well done. The story line is believable and well thought out. Although a work of fantasy, this book will make you think a little about your own faith.

I really liked this book and thought it would be a great read for a young boy to read. The ending however was very abrupt and just ended in the middle of everything. It did not feel like any kind of stopping point.

Where is the conclusion???
