In sum: Fun magic system. Probably a great read for kids!

Khi never knew his birth parents or really where he came from. He's happy in his normal world with his loving adoptive parents and his good friends. Until one day he sees faces in the moon and other seeming-hallucinations... then falls through a portal into a different world. The world he was born in, as a prince. The world that is facing a never-before-seen darkness that threatens to take over that universe and probably more.

I am not the target audience with this book. It was cute and I enjoyed the explanation of the magic (quite a lot) but it is definitely for kids. Even with the kiss (gasp) I would recommend it for like ages 8–12.

There were some timing inconsistencies that bothered me. The two-minute lessons in magic that Khi instantly grasps. The points in the fight where the enemy is about to attack then Khi 'remembers the door' and uses the key to unlock it and they run through and thus evade... that attack... which was underway....

Then there was quite a bit of info-dumping as various characters try to teach Khi about the world—them totally insensitive to the fact he grew up in a world without all of this, and him not seeming to mind all the terms and names and concepts thrown at him.

But in all, the world was fun and the characters were pretty good. The relationships between the characters were cute.
Hopefully the author keeps on writing. His style reminds me of my own when I was that age :D

Knowing that I'm not the target audience, I give it 4 stars rather than 3 which is how I really feel about it.

(I received an ARC of the book for review.) ( )

The Door to Inferna is Rishab Borah's first book, although it is written to be the first in a series so there might be more to come. It incorporates a lot - different worlds/universes, magic, science, linguistics, fantasy, mythology...so many interesting things, but for a short book that is an introduction to a series it ends up being too much. Every sentence is a new name/place/spell/thing to be explained. Every step is a major plot point. Every scene has it's own deus ex machina. And certain plot points, instead of feeling important, feel like someone is checking off a list of things that 'should' be included. The thought put into everything, and the layers of the worlds, and the possibilities for this series are definitely there. But it is very obvious, without even reading the author bio, that this is a first attempt at a book. Hopefully as the author gets more experience the series will grow into itself.

An exciting new book in what is supposed to become a series. This fantasy world is sure to excite young readers and ones who are drawn to wizards, magic and adventure. The young protaganist in the story as well as the other characters will surely become fan favorites as they become more well known to readers. A very impressive first book by such a young author his work will only continue to grow and become more nuanced. ( )
