The Twilight Realm book. Details (if other): Cancel. Thanks for telling us about the problem. by. Christopher Carpenter.

Christopher D. Evans (born 1951 in Tredegar, Wales) is a British science fiction writer and children's author. The Twilight Realm, (1985) (as Christopher Carpenter). Innerspace, (1987) (as Nathan Elliott). His novels include Capella's Golden Eyes (1980), The Insider (1981), Mortal Remains (1995) and Ice Tower (2000). His book Omega, an alternate history thriller, was released by PS Publishing in 2008. It was his first novel for adults in a decade.

The characterizations in THE TWILIGHT REALM are more complex than one normally gets (with the possible exception of Teresa). Rather than a united group, our five heroes spend much of their time bickering and arguing with one another; tensions run high for much of the adventure. Even the villains and supporting characters feel fleshed out.

5 teenagers are transported from Earth to Xhanderre, a medieval world where sorcery rules. Each of them are given special powers courtesy of an item given to them, turning them into warriors, thieves and sorcerers in their own right. The five of them set off on a quest to seek the destruction of the evil sorcerer Avron Kromar, who has turned a lush world into a shadowy realm of eternal gloom and nightmare.

Sound familiar? Well, if you're a fan of the old D&D cartoon, like I was, then it should be. I'm not sure, though, whether the book or the cartoon came first.

I read the book 2 decades ago and instantly loved it. After buying a 2nd hand copy through Amazon, I'm happy to say that I still love the book, despite my anticipation of the betrayal at the end (although what the betrayal is, I'll leave you to wonder).

What I had forgotten was how deeply the author got into the characters of each of the teens, delving deep into their fears and weaknesses. In some respects, the tale deals as much with magic as it does with 5 people coming to understand themselves. For this I applaud the author.

My only point of contention about the book is why the 4 other teens never got angry with the one girl who kept flying away at the first sign of trouble. I mean, I understand the psychology of it, but I find it nigh impossible to believe that the others wouldn't be in the least bit miffed at her constantly running away.

Ah, well, despite the above point, I highly recommend the book to anyone remotely interested in D&D.

The characterizations in THE TWILIGHT REALM are more complex than one normally gets (with the possible exception of Teresa). Rather than a united group, our five heroes spend much of their time bickering and arguing with one another; tensions run high for much of the adventure. Even the villains and supporting characters feel fleshed out. The battles were mainly well-done, especially the last few in the concluding chapters. My only complaint would be that the final battle wasn't quite long enough, and Teresa's character could get a bit tiresome.

When the evil sorcerer, Avron Kromar, found a passage to the Earth from his world, which is parallel in space with Earth, he gave special powers to five teenagers and led them back to his world, Xhandarre, to play a dangerous game with them. Avron Kromar wanted to play a game with these teenagers because he wants to entertain himself; he is bored with his world in which nobody dared to fight him. In this dangerous game the five teens, Paul, Kate, Willie, Justin, and Teresa, are to find their way to Avron Kromar with the special powers they possess and defeat him, but they didn¡¦t know that they have become puppets of the evil sorcerer in the beginning of their quest. Avron Kromar set up many traps to put the teens in danger during their quest, but he always keep them from dying so the game would last longer. When the five teenagers came face to face with Avron Kromar in his citadel, another sorcerer, Meldorion, appeared to help the teens to destroy him and get back to Earth. This powerful, good sorcerer was thought to be killed by Avron Kromar long ago; however, he survived and waited until the right moment for his revenge. The teens sort of regretted leaving their special abilities behind, but they all managed to face their life on Earth along with its many difficulties.
For a story that involves five absolutely amazing abilities and the adventures in a completely different world, this book is way too short. There aren¡¦t enough parts where the teenagers use their powers to defend themselves or to help some Xhandarrians like superheroes. When I counted the number of their encounters with dangerous creatures in Xhandarre, there seemed to be only four. It took twelve short days for the teens to find out where Avron Kromar is and defeat him. How can the author not notice the lack of fierce battles in his book? He even put the picture of the teenagers in the middle of a battle on the cover of this book.
I like the climax best out of all the different parts in The Twilight Realm. ....

I first read this book as a teenager, and I just loved it. I'm 40, now, and I still have my copy. I read it every few years. I recently unpacked it and came on here to see what else he's written. I'm bummed he didn't write more!
