Notes: Now to wait for the next book to come out!
As I close the third book to Every Heart of Doorway series, all I can think about is how I’d like for all the characters to meet each other, and that I still liked the character Jack best of all. Jack would’ve liked Cora, I think. I also think that Christopher is my favorite, but I also really love Nancy, Rini, Nadya, Kade, and everyone else too. Perhaps the last book in the series just might bring all the characters together? Or so I hope, anyway.
This book tells the tale of Rini and how she’s trying to find her mother to save her Nonsense World, as well as herself, from spinning out into nothingness. Rini is, at first, a bit hard to like but towards the end of the book I really find her a nice enough character though not the story I was most interested in being told (that would be Christopher’s story).
The story itself was fast-paced, full of fascinating ideas, and had a lot of baking involved. From baking up an escape from the north tower, to baking other things, this was a wild, fun, and sometimes slightly confusing ride. I liked how it all played out towards the end, with a major twist that made me want to read book one all over again.
I can’t say much more without spoiling the book, but I will say that I want to read Christopher’s story quite badly, and I want to see how Cora fits in (I identified with both her and Jack most of all), and I want to see the Magicians making an appearance with this story too.
That last one, I doubt will ever happen, but a girl can dream.
As per usual with these books, I’m giving this a 5/5 stars, because it’s unique, awesome, and carries with it a good message for all at the end.
Until next time,
-Pass Me That Book.
