The Lovereading4Kids comment

Roland, Helen, Nicholas and David are lured into a ruined church, where the fabric of time and place is weak enough to allow them into Elidor. It is a world almost destroyed by fear, and the children are charged with guarding its Treasures. But then the evil forces find a way to this world.


The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. Four seemingly ordinary Manchester children are swept up into a mythical battle of unearthly forces in a strange land, Elidor - forces that, eerily, can pursue them into their own suburban street upsetting the T. V. reception, for instance. A gripping adventure fantasy that compels belief.
