“Eon’s Door” by J. G. McKenney is a moderately-paced fantasy adventure book which takes place in the mystical world of Erla. When the three clans fled the human world, they fled through a portal hidden in a great oak tree. The key was a piece of driftwood with immense power. When the clans passed through the portal into Erla, the key was locked away - until now. The traitorous sage Shorran stole the key from its hiding place and murdered Miann’s mother. The only hope for Erla is to regain the key and close the portal. To do this Miann must return to the human world and return with “the child of doubt,” the prophesied child who will save Erla. Will Miann be able to find the so called “child of doubt” and return safely to Erla?
The book is full of Miann’s risky and fantastical adventures with the giant eagles, the Chrysos, and the mysterious giant wolves, the Nuruth. Miann faced physical challenges including ascending the giant Tower rock, and the evil Shorran threw obstacles in his path at every opportunity. Although the reader knows that the journey will not be a safe one, there really is not much suspense. Will the travelers reach their destination safely?
