master storyteller Emily Rodda weaves her magic once again The Golden Door introduces Rye, youngest of three brothers His brothers, and others, have vanished one by one while seeking to stop the deathly flying skimmers which attack and kill the citizens of The Weld.Rodda unfolds a story full of magic, danger, chance encounters and strange characters who offer assistance at critical junctures Accustomed to thinking less of himself than his heroic sporty eldest brother, and his clever, quick, second brother, Rye must somehow face hazards, battle evil doers, trust his instincts and new abilities, and find the hero within himself.Rodda s language is simple and clear, her writing is assured, the plot is fast paced and yet allows us to get to know Rye and his assorted friends whom he collects along the way Rye is an immensely appealing character unassuming, loyal and courageous when it matters.Emily Rodda has won the Children s Book Council of Australia Book of the Year Award for a record five times Many readers will be familiar with Rodda s best selling Deltora Quest series, and this trilogy promises to be another extraordinary adventure.Highly recommended for readers 8 Also

Deltora The walled city of Weld is under attack from ferocious flying creatures that raid in the night, bringing death and destruction The Warden calls for Volunteers to find and destroy the Enemy sending invaders, and the heroes of Weld answer the call one by one, never to return Rye is officially too young to go, but his brothers are among the lost and he must find them What terrors await him beyond the Wall I finished this book an hour or so ago, and I m still trembling from the suspense.OH MY GOSH This is for kids THIS IS SCARY I felt like a coward reading it and I m an adult laughs The Golden Door is a fantastic story, it s about a teenage boy who leaves his city under aged, in hopes to find his lost brother and rid of these terrifying monsters called skimmers from destroying anyof their homeland in the Weld I really, really, really liked the plot The story is extremely suspe I finished this book an hour or so ago, and I m still trembling from the suspense.OH MY GOSH This is for

brother and rid of these terrifying monsters called skimmers from destroying anyof their homeland in the Weld I really, really, really liked the plot The story is extremely suspenseful and adventurous, especially with all the scary monsters that attack the main character and the mean people who have too much power in their hands and butts Though it s a pretty straightforward read without much twists and turns, in fact I found it pretty predictable it s amazing how so little can be so much at the same time The Golden Door definitely had me turning pages a LOT On a gloomy note, I m not really sure if this book should be for kids or not it s quite scary When I was reading it, I kept thinking it was a YA book, because there s a lot of description of blood, gore, and even shredded parts of bodies mildly described though Still, I ve read plenty of books marked as YA, but even they had LESS blood in it So needless to say, I was surprised reading this kids book withblood hurdling than I can remember in a while laughs Kiddies should read at their own risk, if they aren t afraid of some violence and scary disturbing scenes I m really glad that this is a series, because I want to readof this world the story takes place in, it s very interesting f you are looking for a book that will introduce your young reader 8 or so years old to the delightful tropes of the Quest Fantasy, you can read The Hobbit out loud, which is a lovely thing to do However, if you want said child to read independently which so many of us do , you could do much worse than offer him or her The Golden Door Which is to say, I think it achieves what it set out do it tells an entertaining story in a very appealing way.Weld is a world within a wall Not a big wor f you are looking for a book that will introduce your young reader 8 or so years old to the delightful tropes of the Quest Fantasy, you can read The Hobbit out loud, which is a lovely thing to do However, if you want said child to read independently which so many of us do , you could do much worse than offer him or her The Golden Door Which is to say, I think it achieves what it set out do it tells an entertaining story in a very appealing way.Weld is a world within a wall Not a big worldactuallylike a densely packed settlement But the space protected by the wall and its magic is the only world Rye and his brothers have ever known It s clear, though, that there is something outside the wall, a place where the fearsome Skimmers fly from each night, preying on the unlucky and the unwary which is to say, eating them.Things get going when Rye s two older brothers volunteer to go hunt skimmers outside the wall, and never come back Rye in good third brother style going off to look for them The way out of Weld gives the traveller a choice of three doors gold, silver, and wood and Rye, trying to think which his oldest brother would choose, heads off through the golden door It s nice that Rye s motivation is to find his brothers, whom he loves, not the usual honor and glory heroicness.He doesn t go alone Sonia, a girl whose been hanging around the Warden s keep for ages, trying to get through herself, convinces him to let her come with him And they re off, confronting a strange world that holds its own strange terrorsIt is a pretty much note perfect fantasy adventure for the eight or nine year old The critically reading adult might find plot points they don t care for, and have passing disbelief suspension issues did I myself, in my adultish way, embrace it and love it to pieces Not so much, though I read it very happily , but I think its target audience won t see any problems with it For them, the story of the third brother and the magic that awaits him in woods beyond the world is still fresh and new, and the splashes of humor and everyday details that Rodda throws into her mix makes this particular tale and its two main characters veryappealing For what it s worth, there are also scary bits, and anxious bits, and gross bits 18 10 2018Hello, I love this trilogy, Please read it Thank you.June 20165 starsI loved this and I can t recommend it enough.

novel that will appeal to younger readers Sadly it doesn t have much cross over appeal for Young Adults or adults The Golden Door is an entertaining book but I have definitely read this book before in many different incarnations This book mixes some very familiar fantasy concepts and plot elements into a mishmash which is known as The Golden Door Don t get me wrong I did enjoy The Golden Door but it s nothing original at all I never really felt an urge to keep reading, this book didn t really have an addictive quality to it The Golden Door will certainly appeal to younger readers and I think many younger readers will love this book I don t think I will be reading book 2 maybe I should read the Deltora Quest books This book is perfect for younger readers who aren t quite old enough for Eragon or Lord Of The Rings If you re familiar with the fantasy genre, you probably won t appreciate this book Thank you to Scholastic for providing me an ARC of this book in exchange for a honest review My kids loved The Belt of Deltora series and one of them got this book for Christmas We decided to read it aloud and all of us just loved it Full of adventure, mystery, and even magic, this series is another winner.Rye and his two older brothers live with their mother in the Weld, a city surrounded by walls Every night, skimmers come and attack the village, especially those houses that

surrounded by walls Every night, skimmers come and attack the village, especially those houses that aren t sealed up and silent If they get a taste of blood, they ll be back, totally demolishing anything in their path A quest is offered up for young men 18 and older, to try and find the source of the skimmers Rye s oldest brother, Dirk, leaves and then a year later, the middle brother When they are both assumed dead and Rye and his mother are left with nothing, he sneaks off and lies about his age, in order to find his brothers and stop the skimmers.There is some blood, fighting, death, etc, but nothing too graphic Sorry I posted this a little late I ve been busy with my two jobs This was a really good book It had a fantastic concept and the whole plot with Rye was all in all satisfying, and leaves enough space for its sequels I think the pacing is very straight forward and keeps you at the edge of your seat, especially towards the end where Rodda gives it her all This

memory serves me right, Deltora Quest was a little better, but it s still a fantastic beginning for a trilogy and a must read for fantasy fans Well done Emily Rodda Damn, I love this hook Yay monsters and walled cities and quests through strange lands But pair those awesome standbys with this hook and I m sunk Rye s brothers volunteered to hunt down the monsters that swoop down upon the walled city

his own path, he would choose the wooden one, but he is trying to find his brothers Which door would they go through I read this hoping to take it to upper elementary students to promote the 2013 Summer Reading program But when I read it, I realized it s reallyappropriate for middle school students The monsters are pretty scary, but honestly the villain is scarier he reminds me of Leck from the Graceling series Or even He Who Must Not Be Named The adventure is complex enough, and the worlds and beings the character encounters are new enough, that this will definitely sell to my younger teenagers And it s REALLY REALLY good I mean, I ve heard the name Emily Rodda plenty she s the author of those Secrets of Droon books that we keep in our kids series section And I guess when someone writes for as long as she has, you do some honing of your craft Because this is really really awesome, a really great read I try not to read series, but I m having a hard time resisting reading the next one here.Other themes Oppressive governments, the role of government in protecting citizens, the draft, ethics, doing what s right, hiding in huts from creepy creepy livestock, spiderwebs, chicks who fight, the role of family, human sacrifice, standards of beauty and orphans and of course sea monsters.Gahblah
