#onelinewednesday: Door to Altharia

I usually don’t read a lot of MG novels, but I was blessed with the opportunity to snag one on Cyber Monday by Martyn McGrath!

As I was reading, I kept thinking how both of my sons (if older) would greatly enjoy his novel Door to Altharia. The world building was incredible! The author did a fantastic job of creating a world very different then our own that was vastly intriguing and leaving you filled with wonder. Some of the first scenes of Alec in Altharia held me captive.

Not only is Altharia a fascinating place, but I was drawn in by the events going on in this world and how it affects Alec. He was an admirable hero and strongly loved his genuine affection for his younger sister. He has struggles that I think many younger readers can relate to.

Plus, the messages in this story I think are one that could have a positive impact on any reader, including myself. (Truly, the series isn’t called the Trails of the Hopebreather without purpose. *winks*) Though I won’t go into all those messages, one of the strongest is choosing to hold onto hope no matter how dark the situation may seem.

Seeing Alec preserve was a strong reminder that we too should not forsake hope.

Keep holding on, friends. <3
