    1. Tallis Challinor, a fifteen year old, hated her life as once her parents died in a boating accident her and her brother had to live with their uncle Craig who was mean to her yet pampered his brat daughter with anything she wanted She felt like Cinderella in a bad horror movie Once her aunt passed she was glad to be sent to Landry to her aunt Gabbie But little did she know that she would go head to head with ghostsOh no she didn t Ms Proyor pens a griping story where young Tallis must face down [...]

    2. I love ghost stories, and this is a good one.Tallis is thrust into a world filled with dead people Some she loved, others she didn t know but who are trying to kill her How much can a fifteen year old take This book is fun, exciting and eerie It s got plenty of ghosts, and a great concept on how ghosts are in the world of the living Pryor shows a great imagination in this book all the way through Tallis pronounced Tally and her brother, Wyatt lost their parents and have been looked after by fami [...]

    3. This book is a contemporary ghost story involving both good, bad and ugly ghosts, all of which can enter our world through strategically placed portals The hero of the book, Tallis, is a teenager who is constantly shuffled from house to house and family to family as no one seems to want her around She eventually finds herself in her Uncle Noreis home who happens to be a gatekeeper for one ghost portal that is located in his basement The book, for me, was slow moving with nearly the first half sp [...]

    4. My Rating 3.5 StarsThere was a little too much whining and bellyaching for me especially from Tallis She would agonize about her plight, sigh deeply, then gird herself for battle, charging headlong into the fray Tallis is a contrary, contradictory character There were times when I liked her, and other times when I would have liked to have slapped her upside the head Do not even get me started on her younger brother Again, mostly I sympathized with him and wanted to hug him, but there was this on [...]

    5. I received a free copy of this book from the author.It took me a little over a quarter of the vook to connect with the characters or the plot, but the connection came and was worth the wait Pryor s writing and characterization got visibly stronger as the novel progressed taking Tallis from a stock issue YA heroine to a unique young woman whose journey I want to continue following in the second book set to be released in 2014.The story follows Tallis as she learns abot portals, gatekeepers, diffe [...]

    6. Set in a town called Landry, a place that puts a whole new meaning to ghost town , we are introduced to several interesting characters At the heart of it, is Tallis She s a spunky fifteen going on forty teenager with problems that often plague girls of her age weight, insecurity, maturity and boys But, then she s confronted with a little ghost problem.Portal s Choice is rife with witty dialogue, great character development and a few LOL moments It has the right combination of teen angst, plot, h [...]

    7. This was a really good ghost story I loved the first bool when the portal chooses it protector There is a lot of introductions in the first book, and it is done in a way that I felt I was just reading along about the story There are 484 pages and they were filled with the supernatural There are ghosts, escaped ghosts, someone dies, and of course mean relatives Noreis was not Tallis s friend, but Tallis soons learns about her uncle and she starts to understand him Their relationship was a lot li [...]

    8. The Portal s choice is a teen oriented book that deals with a subject most books don t focus on death There are honest conversations about grief and how it affects everyone involved The book is well written and the author does an excellent job at writing conversations.I had some trouble getting into the book at first The way time passes and the changes seen in the first few chapters run very fast, making it hard to settle into the world Ms Pryor is creating Once I got 1 3 of the way in and the m [...]

    9. This is an entertaining story of a young girl, Tallis Challinor, orphaned along with her younger brother when their parents are killed while on vacation Living with an aunt and uncle who are unpleasant guardians, Tallis and her brother eventually go to live with their Aunt Gabbie and Uncle Noris in New Hampshire There they find a loving and caring environment, but Tallis is also placed in a precarious situation when she discovers her uncle opening a gateway to the spirit realm in their basement [...]

    10. Although I felt like the book started a bit slow compared to what I normally read, I think it really helped to give the reader a good understanding of the characters and the full perspective from which the characters were coming All of the characters had depth and drew the reader into the story The only suggestion I think I would make to make the story even better would be to draw on of the emotions of the surrounding characters and how they fit the story too This book definitely provided closu [...]

    11. The Portal s Choice is a rare book in this genre There are many books that have gateways between the Earth and here after Most either resemble the movie Ghost or the Evil Dead, depending on the author s choice Ms Pryor has written something different While it has the traditional horror undertones, the story is really about Tallis as she grows after the death of her parents She s in a new town, a new house, and has new friends and there are escaped ghosts on the rampage She handles it well It is [...]

    12. Enjoyable and well written novel I liked the premiss for the plot and feel it was well thought out and the pacing, while not perfect,kept a good pace throughout the story The characters felt fleshed out and had honest dialogue I enjoyed reading this and would recommend it to just about any reader I ll be looking for the next installment I received a free copy from the author in exchange for an honest unbiased review Read reviews, author interviews and enter giveaways on my blog.

    13. It has been many years since I ve been a YA and even several years since my kids have been YA, but I still liked this book It was well written, enjoyable to read, and it kept moving The characters were likeable without being perfect and the plot was well developed Ghosts, mystery and murder No hidden meanings No feeling of terror This is just a good book to curl up in front of the fire and enjoy I look forward to the sequel.

    14. Was given a free copy by the authorExcellent young adult book Glad I was introduced to the story Bought the second book as well Looking forward to the third

    15. although the book seemed to go round in circles every once in a while, i enjoyed most of it and plan on reading the next book the characters were strong and likeable.
