On a winter break from school that should have been nothing but goofing around with his best friends, teenager Khioneus Nevula soon realizes his recent peculiar dreams and visions are cries of help from the strange, mystical, parallel world of Elkloria, whose inhabitants need his special powers to survive. Adopted from unknown parentage, he has always been marked as different by his purple eyes. Now he begins to understand who he really is, and what he must do: open the door to Inferna to save the people of Elkloria. In the mystical land of Elkloria, he meets his twin sister, a proficient mage, a slightly mad scientist, and a princess. In this land, Khioneus is a prince, and he finds himself and his new friends caught in a war between the inhabitants of Elkloria and an ancient and powerful evil.

THE DOOR TO INFERNA, Rishab Borah's debut novel, is a middle-grade story (ages 11-16) that creates a fantasy world as fully realized as those of Rick Riordan or Tamora Pierce. Elkloria draws on Borah's interest in mythology, science, and linguistics as well as the imaginative lands he and his friends once inhabited in play--open to all to explore.
