Publisher's Summary

Years before, a gateway opened between their world and ours. Sending one young woman through may be the key to survival for the kingdom of Fourline.

Strapped for cash, college student Natalie Barns agrees to take a job at a costume shop. Sure, Estos - her classmate who works in the shop - is a little odd, but Nat needs the money for her tuition.

Then she stumbles through the mysterious door behind the shop - and her entire universe transforms.

Discovering there's far more to Estos than she ever imagined, Nat gets swept up in an adventure to save his homeland, an incredible world filled with decaying magic, deadly creatures, and a noble resistance of exiled warriors battling dark forces. As she struggles with her role in an epic conflict and wrestles with her growing affection for a young rebel, Soris, Nat quickly learns that nothing may go as planned...and her biggest challenge may be surviving long enough to make it home.

    "Great read!"

    This is a good book. It hooks you in from the first and takes you along until the end. I found myself not wanting to stop the story. It is clean (no language and nothing steamy). I've heard others write about "world building" but never really realized what that fully meant until this book. If you like adventure books this is for you.

    "Definitely worth your time"

    I really enjoyed this book. It kept me enthralled the entire read. It started a bit oddly and I had to go back and delisted to it but the rest of it was fantastic. Headed off to listen to the next one.

    "Not a fan of the narrator"

    I really wanted so much to adore this book, but I had a problem with the narration. She seemed to over enunciate each word, which felt very forced to me. The tone of her voice was lovely, but both her so called accents, and the crispness of her "t"s and other letters was off-putting to me, especially since a posh sounding voice didn't match with the cash strapped college student main character. Beyond that, the story was fun. It would be a nice read for younger teens or those who enjoy magical YA novels. I don't think I'd continue this series if this is the narrator for the rest though.
    I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher. I received this title for free in exchange for an unbiased review.

    "Step through to Fourline ( not Canada)"

    It's easy to relate to the main character Nat,a young woman in her first college years struggling with tuition issues and home issues. Her dad injures his leg and the family faces economic hardship. When Nat finds her interest in theater classes pays off with the offer of a costume shop job from her professor's wife she accepts with gratitude. She meets the people who work there and overhears bits and pieces of conversation that make no sense to her and the behavior of her coworkers at times seems secretive. Information is eked out to her and finally she is asked to make a quick journey to place a letter in a tree for 3500 dollars. knowing that would solve her immediate tuition problems and assured it was nothing immoral or illegal and it's success simply depended on her being a fast runner, which she was, she accepts the challenge. After she is well prepared by Barba with a tonic and a temporary tattoo on her arm she is shown the entrance to Fourline and pushes through the membrane to make her run...She goes and returns full of questions about the place known as Fourline and is increasingly drawn in to the conflict there...Very good writing and great character voices and narration!

    "No idea what to expect"

    I had no idea what to expect when I played this audiobook. What a fun surprise! The story is well woven and leads your imagination to play. The characters are well developed and ended up having way more back story than I expected. Instead of being hard to get through I looked forward to listening to it. I'm excited to listen to the next one in the series to see how the story continues to play out.

    "Simply written young adult/teen book"

    Many of the characters were lack luster and the majority of the story was pretty boring. It became more interesting towards the end.

    "Boring"

    Not sure if the story or the performer was worse. The characters were weakly described, the story went nowhere and the performer was so amateurish that I found my mind wandering constantly. It took me several attempts to listen to the book and I just should have bailed after the first attempt. A total let down. The various voices of the performer were annoying.
