From New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Jamie Thornton.

Three worlds are falling apart, but making portals is forbidden. Can an untrained Doormaker save her family, and Earth, in time?

Three worlds. One rule. She must never open a door.

Since before Maella can remember, one family rule has shaped her life: never open a door. Maella comes from a family of doormakers - people who unleash otherworldly violence when they open something even as simple as a cabinet door. But when circumstances force Maella to open a portal, she discovers worlds of nightmarish flying monsters, mystical drug deals, political prisoners, religious cults, and a terrifying prediction: Maella will die upon opening her seventh door. 

In order to survive, Maella must uncover her family’s secrets, all while hiding her identity and outrunning the prediction of her death. But what do you do when the truth you need could destroy the universe?

The Doormaker series from New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Jamie Thornton is for listeners who love portals, strange magic, conflicting prophecies, fortune-telling machines, dragon-like creatures, alternate planets, family curses, friendships, betrayal, and a budding romance that spans three worlds.

Just because you can narrate your own book doesn’t mean you should.

I was taking a gamble here. She appears to have the basic ingredients… but forcing everyone to hear them through the tones of a badly equalized (6k spike), high pitched, highly sibilant voice was unwise. It smacks of a production whose goal is, “sounding like the professionals”, not a standard of genuine greatness. Not this time out anyway.
