The Book of Doors

The Book of Doors

Why a Booktrail?

2023: Because some doors should never be opened.

  • ISBN: 978-1787637245
  • Genre:

What you need to know before your trail

New York bookseller Cassie Andrews is not sure what she’s doing with her life. She lives quietly, sharing an apartment with her best friend, Izzy. Then a favourite customer gives her an old book. Full of strange writing and mysterious drawings, at the very front there is a handwritten message:

This is the Book of Doors. Hold it in your hand, and any door is every door.

Cassie is about to discover that the Book of Doors is a special book – a magic book. A book that bestows extraordinary abilities on whoever possesses it. And she is about to learn that there are other magic books out there that can also do wondrous – or dreadful and terrifying – things.

Because where there is magic there is power and there are those who will stop at nothing to possess it.

Suddenly Cassie and Izzy are confronted by violence and danger, and the only person who can help them is Drummond Fox who has a secret library of magical books hidden in the shadows for safekeeping, a man fleeing his own demons. Because there is a nameless evil out there that is hunting them all . . .

Because this book is worth killing for.

Travel Guide

Magical settings

Most of the story is set in New York and when you realise that there are scenes in a  bookshop and a hotel with a library bar, then it’s just as well!

The real setting is the world that opens up as Cassie discovers how to use that book of Doors. It’s a frightening but exciting concept and it takes her on all kinds of adventures. We  move around from London to Chile and a bit of Scotland in between but these are all secondary settings – fictional Kellner Books in New York and the magical world you can enter with the magic books is the real one.

Choose a book, open it up, imagine where you would like to travel to, and who knows – you could be holding the Book of Doors yourself…
