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.

Kirkus Reviews
2013-09-01
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

    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.
