Overview

That doorway in the library was definitely strange. But not even Max McCrane knew it was the Doorway to Doom… until it was too late!

Max, Allie, Grady, and Toby tumble into a perilous new adventure when they enter a doorway to the distant past — a doorway to an ancient, evil kingdom, ruled by the shadowy figure of the Silver Dragon.

Arriving at the dark, forbidding Castle Serpenfane, they meet evil King Wyvern, his wicked and wizardly alchemist Doctor Delyrius, and the strange and mysterious Lady Galatea. The ruthless king confronts Max with a seemingly impossible choice: either help him in his mad pursuit of weapons of mass destruction—or watch his friends suffer a horrible fate!

Meanwhile, Allie must discover the secret hidden among the slithering worms and silent crypts of the midnight maze… while Grady and Toby practice the art of sword-fighting and learn that they will soon march off to war! Worst of all, they are stranded in the past without Max’s orange Volkswagen time machine, Timebender. They have no hope of ever returning home!

If you thought Max and his friends got into some impossible scrapes in the first Timebenders book, wait till you read Doorway to Doom! You’ll be right in the middle of the action as Max and his friends discover the power of faith and courage, and the urgency of speaking for truth in a world of deception.

Open the Doorway to Doom—if you dare! Fall headlong into the dizzying blackness between the centuries. Then take an incredible thrill ride through an age of castles and kings, knights and fair ladies, chivalry and superstition. This action-packed tale sweeps you along to one of the most unexpected endings you’ll ever read.

Young readers love Timebenders: “The Timebenders books are so awesome! They really encourage me,” writes Chloe. And Ben writes, “I’ve read all the Timebenders books! My mom reads them to me at bedtime and I take them for independent reading at school.” And Elliott says, “The Timebenders books are great! Now I’m writing my own book about time travel!”

And parents love Timebenders: “My son has devoured the Timebenders books,” one dad writes. “They really entertain him. We hear him laughing out loud as he reads.” A mom writes, “Thank you for books that are both exciting and appropriate for young readers. As a mother of three and a lover of books, I’m thrilled with Timebenders!” Another mom writes, “My son spent most of his vacation reading Timebenders—the first time he’s read an entire book without skipping pages! His video games are all but forgotten.”

Meet the Author

Jim Denney is a professional writer with more than 90 published books to his credit. He’s been a science fiction fan almost all his life. “I was four or five,” he recalls, “when I got hooked on a Saturday morning TV show called Space Patrol—about space cops rocketing from planet to planet, fighting villains and saving the galaxy.

“In the third grade I discovered A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle. I was wowed by ideas like four-dimensional tesseracts and characters like Mrs. Who, Mrs. Whatsit, and Mrs. Which. I loved the theme: ‘God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise,’ A lot of great fantasy is based on that theme, from The Lord of the Rings to Narnia to—ahem!—my Timebenders series.”

“I wrote the Timebenders series to give young readers the same thrills I got from A Wrinkle in Time. I think of Battle before Time and its sequels as a thrill ride through time and space. Sure, there are deeper themes—courage and loyalty, faith and hope—but above all, I want the reader to enjoy the trip.”

Jim is a member of Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. He has also written science fiction short stories for various publications, and has several brand-new Timebenders tales already on the drawing board. Visit Jim’s Timebenders blog at:
