A Doorway Back To Forever with review

Best friends share everything, right? Unless it’s a secret that could cost them their lives.Robyn and Kit are born with forbidden magic-sense, the power to see and hear beyond Earthly sight and sound. It’s a curse that haunts them, but the girls are strangely drawn to it—could there be more to this power than they’ve been told?

When they spill their secret, it opens a doorway back to Forever—a beautiful realm where magic-sense began. They learn the truth: they have been given a noble gift. It connects them to the Skyborn royalty of this new world. They’ve been summoned back by the forces for good to preserve the kingdom and revive the power where it once flourished—on Earth. It can thrive again, if Robyn and Kit are brave enough to follow
However, the doorway awakens more than magical fairy-tales. A dark force is unleashed—one that has battled the Skyborn since time began, and it wants the girls dead, the Earth destroyed.
Beyond the doorway is where the adventure begins—trickery, kidnapping, a prison break, rescue teams, sword fights, magical gold-dust, holographic medallions, and singing orbs—but only for those who have the courage to believe.

This book is aimed at 10-13 year olds, but is not childish in anyway. I am far from Middle School and enjoyed it. Robyn and Kit are two 12 year old girls who have both had strange senses awaken in them. Robyn sees visions and Kit hears voices having conversations. When Kit's family moves to town to escape frightening disappearances and arrests of family friends, Mr. Fischer, an elderly neighbor, introduces her to Robyn. Both girls are excited to have a best friend but are afraid to discuss their magical sense because it is a criminal offense to even talk about magic.

Telling any more of the story line would include spoilers, but there are magic doors, police actions that are reminiscent of the Nazis, demon-like creatures, a king and prince who have C. S. Lewis type connotations, and lots of lessons for the girls (and the reader) including how to treat others, standing up against prejudice, learning about your own weaknesses and strengths, and dealing with envy and anger.

If you or your child like the Narnia series, or books where kids are the heroes, you will love this series.
