So often, the trend of modern sci-fi has seemed to bend towards the gore-laden shock-fest that belongs in the horror genre. This story has a refreshing grasp on what the concept of science fiction is supposed to be about. As writers, we also harbor a love of reading. The two go hand in hand. When one has indulged for so long in the literary adventure known as writing, it is also a bit of a habit to critique, rather than simply enjoy. I enjoyed this one immensely.

It felt like real problems being solved by real kids like me. I was very excited to find out there was another book which continued the adventure of Eli, Thea, and Clyne.

    Clyne, the talking dinosaur from another dimension, is my favorite character! Just the premise of his character is enough to get a giggle out of most people. His unique, naive perspective on the adventure balances the more serious perspective of Eli in this book.

Other novels can get bogged down and forget to move the plot when they introduce religious themes.Read more
