When twelve year old Bobby Wright answers a wild-looking boy's plea for help, he begins an adventure that will take him to the far reaches of a strange world and the limits of his courage.

The boy's name is Miann and he has risked his life to find Bobby. Two thousand years ago Miann's people fled through Eon's Door, a tree portal, to find sanctuary in a realm called Erla. Their escape came with a prophetic warning: the key to the Door will be taken, its awesome power will threaten the peace they have found, and only a "child of doubt" from the world they left behind will be able to save them. When Miann discovers that Bobby possesses a special gift, he's convinced his search for that child is over. Together they embark on a perilous quest through the Erlan World to take the key back and close Eon's Door.

Full of action and mystery, and with a surprising twist, Eon's Door is sure to thrill fantasy lovers, young and old.<_o3a_p>

Editorial Reviews

Sift Book ReviewsEon’s Door begins in the true spirit of epic fantasy with pages of world maps, character lists and descriptions. The story follows a myriad of characters and their role in finding the portal key that joins their old world with the new, both in current day and several millennia ago. It has a captivating storyline with a lovely surprise at the end; 4.5 stars out of 5.There is a lot of adventure in this book, with many battles, and I enjoyed how the story diverged from the typical with much of the warfare taking place between animals (and trees) instead of people. It had a Lord of the Rings type feel regarding the key (that has gone missing) and the sage who stole it; the key corrupts him to do evil and calls to him. The multiple clans and main characters from each kept the action going and provided a lot of history. I particularly liked the part of the story told through Miann as he relives his father’s memories from 2000 years ago when his father and company were on a quest to flee the world of humans; a story that parallels his own.The writing is solid and detailed and the author keeps up a good level of conflict, however I found it a little slow in the last half of the book. The story may have benefited from some of the more superfluous smaller conflicts/description being taken out. However, I feel I should stress this is a matter of personal taste; the author creates compelling storylines, I just thought there were a few too many. On a side note, I would ha
