A Doorway Back to Forever: Trust




Forbidden … and yet. The black vial calls to you.


“Mark my word,” Dr. du Monique said, “One third of your team will fall to Midnight—and this black vial will be the cause of it.”

Robyn, Kit, and Cam are called to be on the Elite Skyborn Warrior Team, but the Legend’s prophecy points a guilty finger—three of the nine are destined to turn on the prince. They swear none of them would ever fall, but the vial has a secret, mesmerizing appeal.
While learning to control their powers, their younger siblings, Shirley, Grace, and McCoy, are taught to spy on suspected magic-users and turn them in to the police. When the older kids discover a plot to kill Mr. Fischer, they must use advanced skills they’ve secretly cultivated—skills that could push them over the edge into Midnight.
Will they be the ones to fall to the dark side, or will their younger siblings have them arrested before their mission is complete?
A Doorway Back To Forever: TRUST, is the perfect sequel to BELIEVE. It takes two families on an adventure to Midnight and back that challenges their ability to trust who they are, why they are here, and what they’ve been chosen to do. Do you have the courage to join them?

“Nanette O’Neal spins another great tale of faith, this time asking who can resist temptation—would you pass the test?” Kary Oberbrunner, author of ELIXIR Project.

I has the privilege of  reading the first book in this series a year ago when it first came out.
You can read my review HERE!

Now, as this second part of the story came out I reread the first book and remembered how much I enjoyed it. This second book was a great continuation of the story. Where the first one has us jump right into a crazy but fun adventure, this one takes us through a journey of growth and knowledge along with fun and games in the magical world. This is an adventure that leads the characters though not only physical danger, but also the draw of darkness that promises power and the internal struggle of discovering what they can do and how it can save themselves and the wonderful world they have discovered. I really enjoyed this journey and I really enjoy the continuation of this adventure. It was a quick easy read and can be enjoyed by all ages. I highly recommend this set of book and I look forward to reading other books by this author.

The Heart of Escher Review






James Fisher, a lonely, bullied schoolboy, finds himself in the dark and twisted land of Escher after wishing himself away from an ill-fated family holiday.

Lost and frightened, James must help heal the dying world of Escher, overrun by the creatures of the Nightmare forest, to return home.
Guided by the emerald-eyed cat, Sam, and befriended by the headstrong resistance fighter, Jasper, James is taken on an adventure through a world mirroring his own nightmares, where he is forced to confront his own fears and the ghostly Shadow in order to save Escher.

Unbeknown to James, not only is he fighting for Escher’s future, but also his own.

I enjoyed this book and the imagination the author put into it, with the animal people and the adventures of not only Edward but his brother's as the journey continues. I enjoyed that every now and then we got a good insight into what other characters were thinking to pull the story along as they traveled. The places Author Jonathan Dance has created in Escher were fantastic and I really liked the unique idea of the Gardner and the different people. Overall I enjoyed the journey and the fun of the story as it progressed. More than once I found myself needing to finish a part before I could put the book down because it was too good to just set aside. I do highly recommend this book - especially for middle grade when kids are at that age of feeling vulnerable but wanting adventure. They will easily relate to the character in this book as he journeys to save Escher.



Born and raised in Hampshire, I spent most of my childhood dreaming up random adventures.

I left the sunny south coast to study Graphic Communication in Bath, where I fell in love with the rolling Somerset hills when I wasn’t walking up them.

Returning to Hampshire 6 years later, after meeting my now wife, Claire, I enjoy a quieter life, walking in the New Forest and relaxing with my wonderful wife and fluffy cat Molly.

I have always enjoyed telling stories, more often than not in visual form, either in films or animations. However, the idea of Escher was too big for me to do visually by myself so I picked up a pen and started writing.

Having written one novel, I am now keen to tell more stories of Escher, while at the same time expressing my imagination with my art.
