Read full description of the books:
John is back in Anthropos. Not that he intended to go back, but when his friend (under extreme emotional distress) suddenly disappears in the middle of a frozen lake, he's very sure that she's made it to the fantastical world and he decides to go and help her come back. Of course there's more at work than one mere plot, and the Changer has big plans for Eleanor and John while they are in Anthropos, as they are in a battle to choose what they believe.
This series is pleasantly reminiscent of Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia series, but has a healthy mashup of Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress and original ideas that keeps it from feeling like a rip off. For the most part, the characters are likable and relatable, though you aren't always thrilled with their choices. I would say the biggest obstacle is that the language is slightly dated (the series was originally published in the 1970's) and the "slang" the characters use may be confusing for current readers.
Content notes: No language issues in swearing or content, though the affect of words spoken in anger is explored. Slight sensuality in that John battles with adolescent issues of feeling attracted to an illusion and he doesn't understand why (I thought this was done quite well, as scripture is used to explain why he shouldn't pursue his feelings). Some sword and magic violence; characters die, a few on page and rather vividly, but not really detailed. John does kill some goblins, but other than slashing through them with the sword or beheading, not really detailed.
