Original and Intriguing Fantasy Adventure
Simon Fayter and the Doors of Bone is an intriguing fantasy adventure with originality and ingenuity. I particularly enjoyed Simon figuring out how to use the magical coat as well as discovering the secret to the Doors of Bone (with the many adventures inbetween). I especially liked the ending which perfectly sets the stage for the next book in the series. I have read all of Austin J. Bailey's books in the Magemother series, but this is my favorite book he has written (to date).
