Elidor by Alan Garner

Part folklore, part adventure and part fantasy, Alan Garner's Elidor is a modern children's classic. When Roland opens a door in a derelict church, he unleashes the wonders of Elidor and the grave challenges that this troubled world presents. Drawing on Welsh, Irish and English mythology, the book chronicles the trials and hardships of a group of young teenagers as they attempt to fulfill a prophecy from another world, and fight a terrible evil. From Goodreads

This is not as good as Alan Garner's Tales of Alderley series but it is still a good fantasy story and I enjoyed listening to it. And I kind of like the not so usual ending.

This book qualifies for:
Goodreads 2013 Reading Challenge
