Another book plucked off the many Best of 2017 lists that I finally got to a few months in to 2018.

Intriguing and timely concept as magical doors appear throughout the world allowing refugees to leave one area and move to another. (I don’t think I’m giving too much away there.) But while the overall concept and storyline were interesting, the book lacked the level of character depth I typically prefer. So, in the end, I wasn’t left wanting to spend more time with them or know what happened next for them.
