Memory's Door by James L Rubart

Thursday, August 8, 2013

With a victory against the Evil One under their belts, the four of the Prophecy have managed to bring even greater adversity their way.
In Soul’s Gate, Reece, Dana, Brandon, and Marcus—the four of the Prophecy—were set free from some of their deepest wounds.
Now the four must stand against the Enemy’s continues assaults—and try to determine how to prevail against the dark manifestation of The Wolf mentioned in the Prophecy.
But the Enemy isn’t going to make that easy. Circumstances in each of their personal lives affect their unity and commitment to the group. Three enigmatic men appear and none of the four can get a true sense of whether these men are intimate allies . . . or diabolical enemies. And if that’s not enough, the Enemy has begun torturing them with visions of what their lives would be like if they could reverse their greatest regrets—if they’d made the right choices.
These four have seen amazing things in the spiritual realm. But faith can become even more difficult when it’s influenced by sight.

Goodreads Summary

Looking for a book to interest a male reader?  Memory's Door is great for the young Christian reader.  I did enjoy the fantasy theme.  This is the second in the series; I warn those easily confused (like myself) to pick up the first for another read prior to starting this one.  I liked the main characters; I really felt like they were people I could root for unconditionally.  The Enemy is a true enemy; he felt un-redemptive and truly evil.  I liked the thought of alternate realities and how there always seems to be a decision that can affect everything down the line.  

Overall, this book reminded me a little of The Hobbit (when it came to overarching themes and the issues the main characters face internally).  I liked the mysterious tone the author managed to carry throughout the story and how the ending was mildly expected...but not quite.  Overall, this is a great read for young boys.

    I've never thought too much about books targeted to young boys but with a new nephew I guess I should look into it!

    I've never heard of this one before but it sounds interesting. I love fantasy books so I might have to check out the first book in the series. Great review, thank you! =D
