Book Review: Beyond the Black Door by A.M. Strickland


Kamai was told not to open the Black Door.  But the Black door is tempting.  As a Soulwalker, Kamai is used to being able to know everything, and she must know what’s Beyond the Black Door.  

Thank you to Imprint for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.  This post contains affiliate links. You can read more on my disclosures page. 


Beyond the Black Door is basically non-stop action from the start.  So much happens from start to finish that days after reading it, I am still trying to process it all.  The action is non-stop and the world-building is fantastic! A.M. Strickland has mastered the art of showing not telling, and I loved it. 

As I mentioned, this book had a lot going on, a complex political system tied to their religion, secret societies, and much more on top of the main characters soul walking storyline.  I enjoyed it as it meant the book rarely had a dull moment, but it also meant a lot of characters, and which left me with a few moments thinking “wait who is that again.”   

I did like Kamai a lot, she was understanding and kind and very realistically flowed.  There were some Grisha trilogy vibes as well, especially for fans of the Darkling. If you love political intrigue with your fantasy then this book is for you.

Overall: 4/5
