Rating: 4 stars
Purchase: Amazon

In a magical tale of adventure, eight cousins sneak through forbidden treehouse doors, only to find themselves separated from each other and lost in strange worlds. In their quests to return home, they must unravel mysteries, escape snares and villains, find one another, and search for the elusive Oracle. The Peacock Door is a rich story of camaraderie, loyalty, love, and determination with a bit whimsy sprinkled throughout.

The Peacock Door is a magical, imaginative adventure about eight cousins who find themselves lost in strange worlds, and who have to rely on their own wit, intelligence and determination to return home. Each of the cousins is unique and different and although eight characters is a lot to keep track of, I could easily keep them apart. The story reminded me of the classics I loved to read back when I was a kid, like The Neverending Story or The Wizard of Oz.

The scenes are so vivid they seem to come to live, and the writing is on par for the targeted age group, yet adults will be able to enjoy it too. I also really loved the cover, it fit the book well. I enjoyed getting to know the characters, and I hope the author makes a series out of this.
