Thomas Nelson The Final Storm: The Door Within Trilogy - Book Three - eBook

Paragor, the betrayer of King Eliam, unites with the Wyrm Lord and the Seven Sleepers to launch a full-scale assault on the kingdom of Alleble. While Alleble and its allies prepare to face the coming onslaught, they cling to an ancient legend about three witnesses who have the power to bring victory. But is the legend true? And if it is, where are they? Time is running out as darkness spreads over the realm, and Paragor unleashes the final storm. Recommended for ages 10 and up.

With Antoinette still in the Realm, Aiden is worried. She had already been there longer than he had. Aiden and his father, who now believes, go to Maryland, where Robby, Aiden’s best friend lives. But Robby’s father is back, and is teaching Robby that Paragor’s way is right. Aiden must help Robby as best he can to believe in Ellos. When Aiden is sent home by Robby’s dad, Aiden and Robby meet at their old clubhouse in the woods. There, Aiden tells Robby as best he can about Ellos and Alleble. But just as Robby’s father discovers them, Aiden gets pulled into the Thread, back to Alleble. Robby must figure the rest out on his own as Aiden starts a new adventure in the Realm. This book is a page turner, and will keep you reading as long as possible.

My 16 year old son received the Trilogy series for his birthday and he is devouring them up. His Dad can't wait for him to finish the first book so he can start reading the series too. It's great to have adventure/fantasy books that holds a young mans interest and I don't have to worry about what the message is going into his young mind.

Paragor has unleashed his ultimate weapon; the ancient Wyrm Lord. Relentlessly attacking the allies of Alleble, the Wyrm Lord is wreaking havoc. The allies of Alleble gather up their remaining forces and flee to Alleble, seeking refuge. Once there, they find Alleble in chaos. A hero has fallen, and the Glimpses of the King are beginning to lose hope against the final storm unleashed against them. As the clouds gather, and Alleble prepares, the Glimpses hold onto one last shred of hope; the prophecy of the Three Witnesses who can bring victory against Paragor. But who are they, and where are they? With the Wyrm Lord, the Seven Sleepers, and Paragor all under one banner, will Alleble be able to withstand the Final Storm? There is only one thing I feel I can say after reading this amazing book; EPIC. If possible, this book was BETTER then both The Door Within and Rise of the Wyrm Lord combined. Seriously. It just blew me away. Wayne Thomas Batson is surely a storyteller at his best in The Final Storm. The allegory comes together strongly in this last book in the amazing the Door Within Trilogy. Each of the Witnesses (I won't reveal to you who they are) have a choice; Paragor or the King? I love the connection with the choices of our lives. It makes the Realm seem real and close. As of right now, though, YOU have to make a choice; are you going to read this, if you haven't already? The answer should be an emphatic YES. If it's not, then rethink your answer and go read some other reviews! :)

This book was the perfect ending to the series. The battles were epic, christian aspect was amazing, and the whole storyline just came perfectly together in the last few chapters. This is the best series that Batson has written so far.

Now, at the end of the saga, Aiden, Antionette and Aidens newly transformed friend, Robby must fight an evil that has been long withheld from the world by a prison under a fiery volcano. The Wyrm Lord. The original dragon. Whose flame is not stopped by any wall, any substance of the living world. Its sheer size is terrible, and its cunning, impossible to stop. Along with the Seven Sleepers, the Deceiver, Paragor himself, and an army of soldiers. This is the Final Storm.

The Final Storm by Wayne Thomas Batson is the final and most awaited book in the Door Within trilogy. Battles are at their peak the pendulum is swinging. Paragors army is immense. This wonderful novel answers the most asked question... will Paragor win?! This gripping novel will not disappoint!

I enjoyed this slightly less than the second. But it wrapped things up nicely, in keeping with the allegorical themes developed up to this point.

Picking up right where its prequel, The Rise of the Wyrm Lord, left off, The Final Storm plunges headfirst into hair-raising action.Ancient prophecy collides with lies as treachery and deceit poison minds and grapple with faith.Battle looms on the horizon a dreadful and final war. Paragor amasses his forces, including the Wyrm Lord and the Seven Sleepers, and undercover of the mysterious Black Breath, they march on Alleble.Old and new friends unite to clash against Paragor and the Wyrm Lord, but the fate of all hinges upon the Three Witnesses of ancient prophecy.In a stunning, climatic finale to a wonderful trilogy, Mr. Batson outdoes himself. My only complaint is that it all went by too quickly. One part that I especially like is the names and meanings of the Seven Swords.Intense action alleviated throughout with humor, bound with through-provoking allegory, and filled with memorable characters The Final Storm is an amazing book that you will never regret reading.

The Final Storm is the last book in the Door Within trilogy. It ended very surprisingly, with a terrifying battle between the good, and the menacingly overpowering forces of evil. The Door Within trilogy is one of the best I've ever read, and I would recommend it to any fantasy lover.

The Final Storm is the final tome of Wayne Thomas Batson's Door Within trilogy. Like the two that came before it, the story follows Aidan and his friends through the world of Alleble as they fight against the evil Lord Paragor.There wasn't much that I found extremely refreshing about the books' plot or characters, so the ideal audience for reading this series would be kids of the Middle School age or younger. I can see it being a great lead into books such as The Chronicles of Narnia and The Lord of the Rings, though it may bore a more experienced reader.Again, Wayne Thomas Batson delivers a story well-worth reading. I look forward to reading his future books.

Spoilers in here, BEWARE O!The Final Storm was a good book, although King Eliam was not quitepainted in as much splendor as he deserved and the battles got involved and muddled at the end. I think that there should have been a little less stress on Robby & the other's choosing, and more on their trust of KingEliam.That aside, it was pretty cool to see Robby turn out as a friend after the awful scare we all received with his dad, who turns out to be Paragor's second in the Other Realm! Really that part was done well, like when Robby finds that his friendship with Aidan was stronger and more compelling than all the flattery, lies and violence coming from his dad and the Glimpses from Paragor. Trenna the huntress was an interesting addition to the character list too, and Robby's rescue of her from the spiders was a good point. Maybe my favorite part (besides the epic ending) is how Robby tames the cranky untame dragon Splinter and how Aidan's big pet mortiwraith friend comes to his and Antoinette's rescue when no-body else can.Really the best though was when Aidan posed as Blarrak, a slopppyParagor knight, and went into the Gates of Despair to rescue Antoinette! (and of course he did). But it's never easy, because Aidan's commander Drang, and Kearn, Robby's mean Glimpse double, suspect! Find out just how he does it, with Antoinette & an aged sage to keep track of, and Drang on his tail with a half-dozen men!

A book by Wayne Thomas Batson, this book is the third book of a 3 book series. The first is The Door Within and the second is The Rise of the Wyrm Lord. I recommend all three for all readers.Evil Paragor plans to revenge his downfall and defeat king Eliam and proclaim himself king of Alleble! In his corrupted mind he seeks ever to gain the title he never could, King. Now in The Final Storm he is to set in motion an event that will spell the downfall of all blue eyed glimpses! With an army of nightmares, the Seven Sleepers, the ancient Wyrm Lord and a host of evil knights he intends march on all good that it left in the mirror realm.Can Aiden, Antoinette and Robby Pierson save the future of the universe? Can they secure the walls before The Final Storm? Find out today...

The Final Storm is written by Wayne Thomas Batson and Christopher Hopper, it is a thrilling fast moving fantasy-fiction novel, it is VERY suspenseful!The three main characters from our world, Aiden/Aelic,Antoinette/Gwenne,and Robby/Kearn,are destined to save the whole realm from the evil conqueror, Paragor/Satan.Recommended for ages 10 and over (I'm 9 though) >_>Great Book Wayne!

It was a great book. The ending was rather surprising, but in its own way, cool. I wouldnt prefer it over The Door Within, but it was better than The Rise of the Wyrm Lord. Near the end, everything seems lost, and you begin to think it is, when everything becomes perfectly amazing. This was a cool book, and I wish there was another book after it.

The Final Storm is the final book in the Door Within trilogy written by Christian author Wayne Thomas Batson. The setting of book 3 is again, The Realm, but it also has Aidan back in Maryland with Robby, who he finds out is the Glimpse of Paragors second-in-command! The theme, as with the other three books, is redemption. It also tells us that we can come to Christ at a late age, like Robby did.The plot of this book is not at all similar to the first two books. In this book, Antoinette is still in The Realm, searching for Robby's Glimpse so she can lead him to King Alleble. While Antoinette is in The Realm, Aidan is over at Robby's house, showing him the scrolls he found back in book one. They meet outside that night after Robby's dad, whose Glimpse is Paragor himself, bans Aidan from their house. Just then, Aidan is called to the Realm, where he joins forces with Antoinette. They return to Alleble just in time for the big war against Paragor, which in a sense represents the Battle of Armageddon. Robby has now been transformed, and he, Antoinette, and Aidan are brought before Paragor and killed in cold blood. But that only gives reason for King Eliam to return. The following battle is the battle where King Eliam destroys Paragor and sends the army into what represents the lake of fire. Eliam has won, just like Jesus will win, and all those who died and believed go to the Sacred Realm Beyond toe Sun.The characterization is, just like always, magnificent. All the characters from the 1st two books, Aidan, Antoinette, Aelic, Gwenne, Robby, are incorporated into this one for a spectacular climax.This series was a wonderful, uplifting series for me to read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. This is a series I would strongly recommend to anyone interested in good, Christian literature, as well as any other book written by Wayne Thomas Batson.

Beasts of untold grief known as the seven sleepers along with the Wyrm lord and Paragor are ready to attack Alleble. All hope is lost and time is running out. Alleble clings to legend that three witnesses can save them.Darkness is spreading throughout the land. Victory is getting harder and harder to reach. Will the three witnesses come and save Alleble or do they even exist?
