The Rise of the Wyrm Lord (The Door Within #2)
The next exciting adventure in "The Door Within" Trilogy.
Separated from his friend by a thousand miles and unable to return to The Realm of Glimpses himself, Aidan Thomas needs a way to reach Robby with the message of King Eliam, the one true King.
Enter Antoinette Lynn Reed, a bright but headstrong young lady who believes in the Scrolls of Alleble and has a passion for f...more
If you haven't seen this trilogy in real life, I recommend looking for it at your local bookstore. Tommy Nelson (publisher) did a marvelous job with this book. There is colour like I have never seen in a book before. The graphics, fonts ...more
This time it is Aidan's new friend Antoinette Reed who is called into the Realm shortly after Aidan meets her. After entering the Door Within, Antoinette is called to be the twelfth knight in a mission to Yewland. What follows is a harrowing journey through the mysterious Blackwood in which they find the hiding place of the Seven Sleepers. However, they finally make i ...more
The allegory was much more satisfying and well-hidden than The Door Within's, but the similarities to Middle-Earth have grown. Yewland is very much like Tolkien's Lothlorien, and though its inhabitants were never called "elves" they most certainly were. Just a well-educated guess, but the author's "Blue Mount ...more
On earth, Aiden Thomas is having trouble getting back into his normal routine. He keeps having scary nightmares about the Betrayer, Paragor. His mom thinks he is crazy, how he talks about his adventures in the Realm. But when he discovers that he is not the only one who believes in the one true King, things get much more exciting!!
Antionette Reed is living a normal life; sports, school, except for one thing. She and her family follow King E ...more
The Rise of the Wyrm Lord started fresh and exciting where The Door Within left off. I was immensely pleased to mee ...more
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 al ...more
Since Aiden cannot go back to the Realm, he is desperate to find his friend and tell him the truth about King Eliam and the Realm, but they're seperated by more than a thousand miles.
Meanwhile, Aiden meets Antoinette Lynn Reed, a bright and headstrong young lady who believes in the Scrolls of Alleble. Aidan discovers that Antoinette has been called to enter The Realm, so he asks for her help ...more

Mr. Batson takes another big risk in this sequel to The Door Within because he comes dangerously close to repeating the plot of the first novel, just with a girl hero instead of a boy. Fortunately, he avoids the error. Antoinette Reed is in many ways following in the footsteps of Aidan Thomas but precisely because her path to belief and her personality is so differen ...more
Antoinette has been called by King Eliam, for what purpose, it is still unclear, ...more
The main themes of this continuing allegory include that God makes good come out of even bad things, and the word of God is more useful as a weapon than any sword.
I was rather disappointed that Aidan played such small a part in this book, and his glimpse was just enough like him and just enough not like him to make the swap irritating. Aidan’s separation from Gwenne was almost unbearable for me. But if you can get past all that, Antoinette’s story is quite intriguing.
Antoinette already has some experience in sword fighting, riding horses, ect. When she enters the realm, and quickly becomes a sword maiden. She, together with ...more
There are a lot more dragons in this book, and they play a bigger role in the story, which I loved.
I was glad to revisit old scenes and characters, but I also loved the new characters, especially Antoinette. I loved her independence and courage. I was especially impressed with her unfailing hope. Even when she makes mistakes, she hopes that it will get better, she believes that things will work out. S ...more
I totally loved this book, and recommend it to people 11 and up.
Antoinette is the main character of this story. She is called to enter the "door within". Her journey also gains her knighthood. But she has a special favor that she has agreed to with Aiden. She is to find the glimpse of Robby and try to persuade him to follow King Eliam, and not the evil Paragor.
War is enveloping the land, and she finds herself in the midd ...more
The characters in this book face challenges that make you think about things in you encounter your own life. Because of this I think that anyone can t ...more
