  1. Kyle Emke

    The door is a good easy read book that keeps you intrigued until the very end. Once you start reading, it’s hard to put down. The mystery will keep you guessing until the very end!

  2. Jacob Aaron Harada

    “The Door” moves quickly, but not without richly detailing both realistic portraits of mountaineering adventure, and wonderful original fantasy elements. The narrative follows a tight mountaineer team. I loved the interactions between them and the realistic way that they address problems together. Their realistic problem solving was refreshingly believable, as were their concerns, hopes and conflicts. A well written cast.
    I much enjoyed following the team over the mountain and then under it. What ancient wonder awaits them there?

    I enjoyed book thoroughly. I had trouble putting it down! I enjoyed the suspense of the mystery, the human interactions and also learning a bit about mountaineering along the way too.

  4. Janet Atkinson

    Just finished the book, I could hardly put it down. It is incredible, compelling and gripping. I am a very visual reader and can imagine all the characters and places easily with the descriptive writing. The Door is an excellent read.

    THE DOOR is a genuine page-turner—right from the get-go! For me, jumping into this incredible book was like stepping off the edge of a cliff. Immediately the author grabbed me and held me—spellbound—right up to the end, with 300 or so pages rich with authentic adventure and ingenious surprises.

    And let me tell you—it was real! I was there…and what a ride! The author doesn’t just describe places, events, people and experiences…she picks you up by the scruff of the neck—gently though, like a mother cat with her young—and plops you down right in the thick of it. Bang! Direct, personal, rich and earthy…honestly, she is a magician with words:
    • The dragon exploded past their feet in a burst of white-hot light.
    • The fresh, icy wind filled his lungs and tingled down his spine.
    • The world dropped out from beneath him.
    • Power doesn’t fix humanity. It only amplifies what is already there.
    • It is strange that so often it is only the broken piece that survives to tell the tale.
    These are only a sampler of the vivid descriptions and notable insights that pepper this book. And then, of course, there is the author’s marvelous twist on the usual plotline of treasure/artifact adventures. It is so clever and creative at the end when she reveals that…well, I can’t really say—don’t want to ruin it for you!
