" Listened to the audio book with my boys. There is lots of danger both physical and spiritual. I wouldn't read/listen with younger children or children who are easily frightened. A book of my choice. " said.

" This was our read along this month. I really enjoyed this, Peretti is my all time fAvorite author and this is the only series of his that I have yet to read, I believe. So I am very excited about the chance to share his writing with my children. This was very much an adventure story, but also a faith story. The mystery revolves around a prophecy that ties into Revelation. It's Biblical and dark, but still child appropriate. Looking forward to reading the next one. " said.

" I wanted to like this book (and series), but sadly I DNFed. The book beats you over the head with Christian principles. I believe that you can do almost anything through God and faith, but that won't always get you out of true physical danger. The other glaring issue with it is the children who are "trained" to deal with any danger, are terrified within minutes of their first appearance by a snake and are unable to move until their father comes and saves them. " said.

"Jay and Lila have traveled the world with their dad, who's an archeologist. The kids are essential members of the team, and it's fun to watch the family (and their three other crew members) working in close harmony. There's respect, trust, and protectiveness. In this particular adventure, the Coopers are investigating the legends surrounding the Door in the Dragon's Throat. And they're walking into a site where several other teams from different parts of the world have lost their lives.

Action-packed and tightly paced. A lower middlegrade adventure with strong Christian themes.
" said.

"I read this book to my daughter who is 11 and my son who is 10. My kids are really into action adventure and hate romance in books. They are both avid readers and can easily read books above their grade level. But it is hard to find older books for them that do not have romance and yet are full of suspense, action-adventure, and mystery. After being frustrated by what I thought was a safe reading list, I found these books and was thrilled. I bought this first book and it looked so good that I wanted to read it to my children. It definitely fulfilled my requirement list and I love that it was a spiritually filled book in addition to being really exciting and entertaining! My son rated it five stars. My daughter only gave it four stars. Her reasoning was because the brother has more of a "hero" role then the sister. Can you tell my daughter is the oldest and first born? I am encouraging my children to read the rest of the series as part of their required reading hours each week. This is a great series to have in your home library!" said.

"I was a devoted acolyte of Frank Peretti in my younger years. I devoured his Cooper Kids Adventure series as a youngster and then moved on to his horror based adult fare as I became a teenager. Decided to do a revisit. This is the first book in his Cooper Kids Adventure series. Intrepid archaeologist/adventurer Jake Cooper and his two precocious kids, Jay & Lila, head into the desert of a generic African nation. A strange door lurks deep below the ground in a supposedly cursed cavern called the Dragon’s Throat; other adventuring teams have vanished after venturing into the cavern or returned having lost their minds. What evil awaits behind the massive door? Peretti’s young adult books were always a lot more obvious about his Christianity; his adult books were often more allegorical or symbolic in that regard. This one’s pretty preachy and the writing is pretty bad. It’s a great framework and a genuinely good plot with slowly building mystery leading up to a big finale. It would make a great movie or something if you edited out a lot of the preachy monologues; that way you wouldn’t have to deal with the rather bad prose. But it’s Peretti’s first novel; I’ll keep reading and see how he develops. " said.

" A little cheesier than I remember but an excellent book nonetheless. anyone young or old can enjoy this! " said.

" I thought it was a little confusing.If I re-read it, it'll prolly make more sense. Other than that, it's good. " said.
