Who doesn’t love a good fantasy where a character from our world gets dropped into a completely foreign place with unrecognizable creatures and beings?
The Little Door by Stormy Lyn is exactly that and so much more. Amidst her parents divorce, Rose is sent off to her grandparents place, the setting of her first ever traumatic experience of drowning which still haunts her to this day.
One day, curiosity gets the better of her and, as curiosity goes, she falls into the world of Mavarakites and Other-Siders. Slowly but surely, secrets of this world and her past collide. It’s up to Rose to uncover these secrets, right the wrongs of the past, and of her own misled actions.
Reading this book gave me a nostalgic feeling for the types of stories I read growing up. It was a little bit of Narnia, Labyrinth, and Alice in Wonderland, not to compare creators. Stormy very much has a distinct style of writing where she uses imagery to capture the senses of this new world. I could taste the food Rose would eat with the Small family, I could feel my lungs struggle when Rose thrashed through the water, smell the clear air as she climbed to the top of the trees with Rylan.
Writing style aside, the way the plot moved had me urgent to find out what was next. I’m intrigued to find out what happens in the sequel!
