Publisher's Description

Some doors are better left unopened. Join teenager Rebecca “Becka” Williams, her brother, Scott, and friend Ryan Riordan as they head for mind-bending clashes between the forces of darkness and the power of God. The Ancient Forces Collection brings together three fast-paced novels of the supernatural by bestselling author Bill Myers. The Ancients Sent to a remote village in the mountains of New Mexico by the mysterious Z, Becka, Scott, and Ryan encounter a Native American cult and an evil so potent it can control the very powers of nature—and subtly poison the soul of one of their own. The Wiccan The star of The Hex, the hottest show on TV, is appearing at a local bookstore, and Rebecca’s friends are headed off to see her. But Becka quickly discovers that the glamour of Wicca cloaks lies more sinister than anyone imagines. The Cards As past hurts resurface and his emotions reach the breaking point, one of Rebecca’s friends seeks the counsel of the Tarot. But do the cards offer hope … or destruction?

    With book number four, author Bill Myers wraps up his Forbidden Doors series, at least for the present. Overall I truly enjoyed this series. I loved the characters and I thought that they were people that teens could relate to. Sure they made mistakes, but along with their mom's advice and the mysterious Z who reminds them of scripture and the power of prayer they grow spiritually and emotionally. As with all the other books, this one is split into three separate stories.

    THE ANCIENTS: take sibling's Becka and Scott Williams, their mom and friend Ryan to a Native American village to help a young man named Swift Arrow convince his people that God is real and that Jesus came to die for us and our sins so that we may be with Him in heaven. But Ryan while trying to understand the culture finds himself being pulled into a dark realm where he finds himself fighting for his very life.

    THE WICCAN: brings our three young hero's back home and into the direct line of fire of a young woman who claims to be a wiccan. Becka finds her faith tested as she fights for her friend Krissi who has decided to try wicca.

    THE CARDS: When Krissi's boyfriend Phillip finds himself under overwhelming pressure on what his future should be, he finds himself being drawn into the world of tarot cards to try to find answers. Unfortunately those answers could come with a high price. Can Scott save his friend before it's too late?

    I found this book to be a fast- paced, page turner that leaves the reader wanting to find out how things end. Regrettably we do not get to find out who Z is, but I am hoping that that was done intentionally so the author could come back sometime in the future and pick the stories back up. Overall it was a fun series that tries to help kids understand that God is the only God and Jesus is the only way to heaven and everything else is counterfeit. As with the other books in this series this was written for teens ages 12-17 and I would caution parents with kids on the younger side to either read the book first or with you child. Some of the content was very intense.

    Zondervan has updated and re-released Bill Myers' Forbidden Doors series in four, three-volume sets. The Ancient Forces Collection is the fourth, and final, book in the set. Here's a summary of each story in the fourth volume.

    Book 10

    The Ancients

    Becka, Scott, their mother, and Ryan travel to a remote mountain village in New Mexico and encounter a Native American cult. Ryan doesn't see what's so bad about the things these people believe, instantly making comparisons between the Native beliefs and Christianity. But how far will Ryan explore this new faith?

    Book 11

    The Wiccan

    The Hex is a popular TV show about a witch, and the star is coming to town. Becka's friends have an invitation to meet the star. But Becka instantly recognizes the sinister nature of the woman's beliefs. And when the woman casts a spell for revenge, Becka is the only one who knows how to set it right.

    Book 12

    The Cards

    Philip is tired and stressed out. His father is always nagging him about college, but Philip wants to make his own life. When he seeks answers from Tarot cards, his life starts spinning out of control. But that's exactly what the cards predicted, so it couldn't be their fault, right? Scott wants to help his friend, but before he can offer a warning, he needs to learn to love.

    I really enjoyed these books. They dealt with the supernatural and occult in a Biblical manner, exposing the truth behind twelve different types of occult, one in each story. I highly recommend this series for all young readers, twelve and up.

    One thing that bothered me plot-wise: it was a bit convenient that such trouble continued to come to this one family. Like Ralph Macchio in the Karate Kid running into convenient "Karate trouble" everywhere he went, Becka and Scott run into "occult trouble" at every turn of their lives. The series also didn't tie up the loose end of who Z was. It hinted at a resolution, but not in a satisfactory way for the end of a twelve-book series. So if you're looking for an answer to Z's identity, you won't find one.
