Now includes THE LOST CHAPTERS, four previously unpublished chapters with author commentary and editor notes! Aidan Thomas is miserable. And it's much more than the strange nightmares he's been having. Just when life seemed to be coming together for Aidan, his parents suddenly move the family across the country to take care of his wheelchair-bound grandfather. When strange events begin to occur, Aidan is drawn into his grandfather's basement where he discovers three ancient scrolls and an invitation to another world. No longer confined to the realm of his own imagination, Aidan embarks on an adventure where he joins them in the struggle between good and evil. With the fate of two worlds hanging in the balance, Aidan faces Paragory, the eternal enemy. Will Aidan be willing to risk everything and trust the unseen hand of the one true King? The answer comes from The Door Within. This new edition of The Door Within is designed like the Director's Cut DVDs of favorite movies and includes deleted chapters, extended scenes, author and editor commentary, and even new bonus adventure stories written especially for fans. What to expect in The Door Within, Lost Chapters Edition: Deleted Chapter: Original Chapter 1, where Aidan learns that his family will leave their lifetime home in Maryland to move to Colorado. And something startling happens in Aidan's room. Deleted Chapter: Original Chapter 2, where readers meet Robby, Aidan's best friend, and follow he and Aidan on a local adventure.

4.0 The Door Within: The Door Within Trilogy - Book One
A tale akin to 'The Chronicles Of Narnia' and 'The Neverending Story' in that the protagonist gets, transported to and embroiled in rectifying a 'situation' in an alternate reality -- also in which personal strengths are discovered and character development takes place.

0.0 The Door Within: The Door Within Trilogy - Book One
Excellently written, with an amazing plot that contains plenty of twists, and an ending that leaves you hungry for more. In my opinion, this is an even better Christian allegory than "Chronicles of Narnia" or "Lord of the Rings," in part because it's much more readable. Great stuff!

5.0 The Door Within: The Door Within Trilogy

Lewis's The Chronicles of Narnia, is set in a modern day world where Aidan Thomas lives a very boring life.

The story is a Christian allegory, done very well. It's almost as good as The Book of Three by Lloyd Al...
