Overview

Internationally bestselling author Emily Rodda's brilliant finale to the trilogy inspired by the world of Deltora. Three magic Doors are the only way in and out of the walled city of Weld. The golden Door is grand and majestic -- a Door for heroes. The silver Door hints at mystery and knowledge -- a door for schemers. But the plain wooden Door has always held the most appeal for Rye and his friend Sonia. And now, at last, they have the chance to open it. The city of Weld is under attack by skimmers, flying beasts that terrorize the night. If Rye and Sonia can't discover the enemy sending the skimmers in time, Weld has no hope. Twice before, Rye and Sonia left Weld on a quest to save it. Twice before, they failed. Now there's just one Door left -- one last chance to save the people of Weld. Rye and Sonia know everything depends on them. But nothing can prepare them for the horror that waits behind the wooden Door.

Children's Literature - Magi Evans
Having engineered an escape from the Master’s prison and killed the deadly skimmers being bred there in book two of the “Three Doors” trilogy, Rye, Sonia, Dirk and Sholto make their way back to their home city of Weld, only to discover that a skimmer attack has left the keep in shambles, injuring many orphans. Rye realizes with horror that there must be another place where skimmers are being bred, and that he and Sonia will have to go through the third door in order to find and destroy the enemy. Accompanied by Dirk and Sholto, they go through the door, and after escaping the unfriendly Fell Zone, find themselves in Fell End, where the citizens are celebrating a visit by Chieftain Farr and his family. Rye rescues Farr’s son from an attack, but he is badly hurt, and wakes up in Farr’s barge, with no memory of who he is. Summoned to a history museum in New Nerra, Rye is given a book, which helps him find a hidden disc, the symbol of an ancient agreement between the Fellan and the ancestors of the inhabitants of Dorne. An explosion in the museum brings back his memory, and he is soon reunited with Sonia and the others. But when Rye tries to use the disc to stop Farr from attacking the Fellan, he discovers the horrifying truth about the enemy and the skimmer attacks. The final third of the book is full of plot twists that keep readers guessing until the heart-stopping finale. Rodda’s storytelling and world building skills are at their most winning in this trilogy, which will appeal especially to fans of the “Deltora Quest” series. Reviewer: Magi Evans; Ages 9 to 12.

Determined to save the walled city of Weld, four volunteers venture once again into the Chamber of Doors. The first time he was confronted with a choice, Rye selected the golden Door, a regal gateway for heroes. On his second journey, Rye chose the mysterious silver Door. In those adventures, he was successful in finding his brothers, Dirk and Sholto, lost behind the golden and silver Doors, respectively. However, this third adventure begins as Rye, his brothers and Sonia flee from the misdirected wrath of the Warden of Weld. As Rye faces the Doors again, he is drawn to the plain wooden Door. Beyond lies The Fell Zone. Even with his pouch of magical objects, Rye may be no match for its cruel Master and his minions. But alliances shift, and soon, Rye learns the truth, forcing him to make difficult choices that will affect the entire world. This is no pedestrian fantasy. Richly detailed landscapes are populated by all manner of monsters and fueled by magic. Engaging characters must resolve complex problems. And surprising twists are around every corner. However, readers unfamiliar with the previous two volumes in this trilogy will be hopelessly lost in the story's intricacy; they would be well-advised to start at the trilogy's beginning, with The Golden Door (2012). A satisfying finish to a rousing trilogy. (Fantasy. 8-12)

ANY BOOK authored by Emily Rodda is an automatic purchase in my family. I don't even need to read the blurb first--I just automatically know it will be wonderful. And I'm ALWAYS right. All three of my children have been through the Deltora Quest series, and my daughter (the youngest) has enjoyed this most recent series with me. I always have full sets of every series in my classroom. They are that good. Like all of her books, The Golden Door series is powerful, engaging, and utterly original. The characters of Rye and Sonia are wonderfully complex and irresistible. Rodda is a master of both world building and plot development, carrying an entire storyline through multiple books, while still managing to make it new each time. The Third Door is a perfect finale to the trilogy. It is full of adventure and mystery, surprises and shocking revelations. This series will satisfy even the most critical readers.
