Review 1 for The Blue Door, The Threshold Series #1
Great Character Development
Date:April 20, 2013
A nice slower-paced, character-developing plot in this first book, but towards the end of the book we see that it sets the stage for some potentially cool things in the next book. I started to fall in love with a few of the characters. It made me chuckle in places, and actually made me tear up in a couple as well. The author's strength is in her characters, the heartbeat and emotions. Well worth the read, and I can't wait to get my hands on the other volumes.

Review 2 for The Blue Door, The Threshold Series #1
This is a book about angels. The author portrays them as having a completely human form, body and life. I am not sure just how biblically correct that it, but that's how they are pictured in this book. To be honest, nothing much happens apart from the main character, a little girl called Prissie, discovering that some of her neighbors are not human, and they are in fact angels.
She struggles a bit with this discovery, and asks many questions about how angels work in our world and who they are. And then she must discover the purpose for her special ability.
This was a cute, warm book, but a little too young for me. It says it is middle grade, I would say children's. I think it would be suitable for girls up to ten, eleven years old, no more.
It is a short book, and at the end it sets the scene for more struggles to come between the angels of light and those of darkness. Because, yes, there are evil beings out there too, who have their eye on Prissie. I am looking forward to the battle taking off.
Another thing is that this book offers a glimpse to the heavenly world, but to be honest I don't think it was portrayed very well or correctly, judging from what we read in the Bible. However it was brave of the author to try to tackle this, and the readers must judge for themselves. It might be dangerous though, if you are a young reader, it might give you the wrong impression about the angelic world.
The Blue Door is a book about possibilities, about seeing more than the world around us. It's about opening your eyes and about learning to let the truth in. It is also about love and kindness. It is about family and strangers and growing up.
It is out now.
I received this book via Book Review Pitch in exchange for an honest review.
