The Rise Of The Wyrm Lord
Full Product Description
In the second part of Wayne Batson’s Christian allegory, ‘The Door Within’ trilogy, Aidan Thomas – discoverer of the lost scrolls of Alleble finds himself separated from his friend, Robby and unable to return to the Narnia like ‘Realm’.
Enter Antoinette Lynn Reed, a bright but headstrong girl who believes in the Scrolls of Alleble and has a passion for full-contact Kendo. When Aidan discovers that Antoinette has been called to enter The Realm too, he enlists her help to find Robby's Glimpse (his parallel in the fantastic Realm) before it is too late.
When she arrives in the land of Alleble of the Realm, Antoinette finds the kingdom is in turmoil. Alleble's allies are inexplicably beginning to turn away, renouncing former ties with King Eliam. And there are rumours that the dark Prince of Paragory is seeking an ancient evil to crush Alleble once and for all.
Can Antoinette and a team of Alleble's finest knights learn the secret of Paragory's growing power? And will they be able to stop the Rise of the Wyrm Lord? With author and editor commentary, and even new bonus adventure stories written especially for fans, preteens and teens will continue their journey with Aiden and his new friend Antoinette in the Realm (the Tolkein like fantasy world) and the Mirror (our real world) as they battle to rescue a friend and prepare to resist the rise of the evil Wyrm Lord.

"I like how faith is presented in this fantasy. "Even were the hordes of darkness to assail you in hopeless demand of your life - even then do you swear devotion forever to the King?" There are detailed descriptions about the scenery and action sequences that make you laugh and gasp." - Other Retailer's Reviewer.
"Like the first book, it starts a little slow, but then when you get to the middle of the book, it is impossible to put down. The characters are interesting and the story is very exciting. I read this book and the third book of The Door Within Trilogy within a couple of days because it was so exciting. I would highly reccommend this book, the rest of the Door Within Trilogy, and all of Wayne Thomas Batson's other books to anyone who likes fantasy."- Other Retailer's Reviewer.
"This is an awesome series for any age, though 9-14 would probably enjoy it most. It's a good beginning for young readers blazing out into the worlds of fantasy. A few things are reminiscent of Lord of the Rings. Yewland does remind me of Lothlorien, Nock a bit like Legolas, Kaliam sort of like Aragorn... but that's okay. The plots are totally different and no hobbits."- Other Retailer's Reviewer.
