The Door to the Lost

Reviewed by:

The Door to the Lost is fantasy writer, Jaleigh Johnson’s, new book featuring lost worlds.  In the fantasy world of Talhaven, Rook, Drift and eventually Fox are only three of the many children who escaped the world of Vorn just before a catastrophic explosion destroyed the portal back to their homeland.  They are now refugees in their new world.  They still possess some of their magic powers, and so are feared and hunted by the people of Talhaven.  Drift is able to fly by manipulating air; Rook draws doors with chalk that become escape routes from danger; Fox can shape-shift between a small boy and a large red fox.  Drift and Rook use their magic to help others that are trapped to escape, and are happy with their new life until evil forces come to test their refuge and their friendship.  The two take harrowing adventures trying to find help on the other side of Rook’s doors and eventually to thwart the planned explosion that would destroy their new world.

“Themes of refugees and found families are addressed in a way that retains fantasy flavor while realistically presenting the brutality of ignorance and beauty of humanity. Your new favorite fantasy.“-Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
