About this audiobook

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jamie Thornton.

Two hours. One interstellar drug deal.

“...traveling to other worlds is hardly a new concept in fantasy, [but] the idea of having no control over it as well as it affecting mundane life like being unable to open doors is wonderfully terrifying...very evocative...” - BookNest, C.T. Phipps ★★★★★

"Imagine not being able to open a door without mistakenly opening a portal to another world....Once again Jamie Thornton has created a winner." - Amie's Book Reviews ★★★★★

One family rule has shaped Esson’s life: never open a door. Esson comes from a family of doormakers—people who unleash otherworldly violence when they open something even as simple as a refrigerator door.

Esson’s family lied to him.

Esson didn’t die when he opened a door.

But if Esson doesn’t track down some magical drugs within the next two hours, the drug dealer he got involved with might just kill him anyway.

Discover what happened the day Esson vanished.

This book starts the whole Bookmaker story and of the family that has a great secret they have to keep fearing for thier lives. Esson, trying to help his family gets in to a huge mess. He has been told never to open any kind of door but he does not listen and that is were the adventure begins and the scariness of the story. Kids 10 to 99 would love the book though this is a very short story but it has the base of all the rest of the books. I received a complimentary copy of the book and I was not required to give a positive review, only my own opinion.

I just finished listening to this one but I'm still not sure how I feel about that ending. The story was really short, and it works as a prequel. Esson pulled me into his predicament, wanting me to know how it all was going to play out and if he was going to achieve his goal or not, but I don't think I was exactly rooting for him, especially with the decisions he made along the way (use of drugs, violence). Still, even though there's some kind of resolution to the story (we're told whether he makes it or not), it leaves the reader with more questions about the series. As for the narrator, she did great with all the nuances and the storytelling, but I think there's room for improvement in her male voices (there wasn't much difference between Esson and Barth's voices when both were involved in a conversation). ~3.5 stars

The author should have opted for someone else to read this book. She is reading it like you would to a kindergarten class.
