CSFF Tour - Wayne Thomas Batson Day 2

Welcome to day 2 of the Christian Science Fiction and Fantasy blog tour for Wayne Thomas Batson.
Wayne is the author of the excellent young adult fantasy series-The Door Within Trilogy. Yesterday's blog featured book 1 - The Door Within. Today's feature is book 2 - The Rise of the Wyrm Lord. Of course, tomorrow will showcase book 3 - The Final Storm. The whole trilogy is highly recommended for young adults and for adults who like fantasy.
The award for the most innovative interview of the tour goes to Lori at Unseen Worlds. She interviews a character from the series-Aidan Thomas. Click here to read her interview. I especially enjoyed it when another character interrupts.
The Rise of the Wyrm Lord follows the story from the first book. King Eliam only calls a person to the Realm once in a lifetime. Aidan cannot return. He knows that his best friend in the "real" world has become a follower of the evil Paragor. Aidan finds that a classmate has been seeing visions from the Realm. He asks her to help his friend before it is too late. The classmate, Antoinette, is called to the Realm and goes on a mission for the king. All of this is placed against the background of a world that is falling apart. Imposters are spreading lies and trying to break the alliances that King Eliam has made. Paragor is trying to bring back an ancient power of the Wyrm Lord. And the story ends on a cliffhanger. To be continued...
Please take the time to read the various interviews and comments by the other members of the tour.

Jim, you think like I do--three books, three days in the tour. Makes sense, right? Hahah. Again, a very nice post. I agree about the interview with Aidan. Clever!
