Editorial Reviews

Review

"I do not read a large amount of science fiction, but Shelby and Shauna Kitt and the Dimensional Holes may change that for me.  The characters are realistic and engaging.  The setting is magical--I want to take a trip to Miriax.  The story drew me in and kept me guessing until the last page." -- The Book Addict 


"This is a wonderful Syfy/Fantasy book for Middle Grade or YA readers, although I believe adults would enjoy it also. I stayed up until 5am to finish reading it!" -- K.C. Hilton, author of The Magic of Finkleton


"I would recommend this book to people who like adventure and fantasy. . .It was very entertaining and I didn't want to put it down until I finished it." 13-year-old Ben Weldon for Reader Views Kids --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

"Marchesi combines magical genius and some science and take us on a ride with these young characters. Young adults and adults will love the story alike." -- The Pen & Muse Review

Great book and a fun read. I would recommend Shelby and Shauna Kitt and the Dimensional Holes for any reader ten on up to..oh say a hundred. In other words any reader with an imagination! -- Alan Nayes, author of Return to Underland

Concept/World
This is a brilliantly original idea, created in vivid detail. The two worlds the author has created alongside Earth are enthralling. I was reminded of Arthur C Clarke's "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.", as there are many aspects to the settings and creatures that seem almost more magical than sci fi.

Story
The story powers along right from the start. It has the same kind of pace and structure as the Harry Potter stories, with apparently ordinary kids discovering extraordinary abilities, getting into trouble with the nasty authority-figure at a training camp and winning through in a high-action adventure against an overwhelming evil. I loved all that and would certainly put this book on my shelves alongside J K Rowling's.

Characters
The characters are superbly drawn. Though the book is written for teenagers, there are adult characters for older readers to engage with. I particularly liked Marina Gibbs, a lady who takes the appearance of an alien in her stride, and does not take any cack from the army, either. Lendox, the mirian vice-consul, is amusing, and the two kids are likeable. The most intriguing character in the book, though, is the mysterious Dale Falconbridge. The author keeps you guessing right to the end whether he's evil or not.

Overall
I gulped this book down in one sitting. I couldn't wait to find out what happened to Marina and what was really going on with Dale Falconbridge. I'll be keeping this book on my kindle to read again, and hope that Shelby and Shauna Kitt will be going on many further adventures. Highly recommended.

When Shauna and Shelby Kitt are "drafted" to save Earth and another good planet Miriax from the evil Klodians, they have no "earthly" idea what they've gotten themselves into. In this young teen adventure, the author has created an exciting world filled with space aleins, evil Klodians, frightening space ghosts, healers, stitching spiders, giant bats and many other fun and quirky details and situations that you might expect from a story involving multiple dimensions. The characters are well developed--you care for the good guys and really hate the bad the guys--and the plot twists and turns made me feel like i was riding in that space ship at times. No motion sickness for me though. Great book and a fun read. I would recommend Shelby and Shauna Kitt and the Dimensional Holes for any reader ten on up to..oh say a hundred. In other words any reader with an imagination!

Marchesi is a phenomenal storyteller, roping the reader into this wonderful tale of other dimensions and species. Though the story revolves around two thirteen-year-old protagonists, I'd have to say that this is a book for everyone. Parents can read it to their children, MG and YA readers will eat it up, and adults will enjoy the premise, themes, and overall fun this book has to offer.

Not only does this novel have a very interesting storyline, but Marchesi's writing capabilities also shine throughout the entire tale. I am always excited when I start a new novel and, three pages in, note to myself that "this book is really well written." It is few authors that have me singing their praises that early on in the novel, so I must say, this novel is very well done. Although the novel is somewhat long, with the protagonists being whisked from place to place, dimension to dimension, it keeps the reader's attention throughout, which is a feat in and of itself, as many authors lose their reader when so much is happening within the text.

Marchesi has a truly vivid imagination, and her explanations throughout the novel were really interesting. I am in awe of the sheer amount of imagination Marchesi brings to her story, tweaking it just so, making the reader experience it and not just read about it. I highly recommend this novel to all readers, and am hoping for a sequel!! Four stars!

A few friends and I started an indie ebook book club and this was one of the first one's we read together. We chose this book because we noticed the author had a PhD in English. We figured it had to at least be well-written. And it was!

I loved the special powers that Shelby and shauna have. I found myself wishing I could manipulate gravity to make myself lighter. ;) It seems reviewer Ben Weldon up there did a good job of summing up the basic plot points, so I'll just say that we all really loved this book. We can't wait for the sequel. :)

A great debut novel well-written and compelling for the whole family. The characters are well developed, the settings are strange and beautiful, and the story is engaging. It is hard to put down! This would be a great addition to any school library and would be particularly appropriate to the 10-15 year old crowd, and even younger advanced readers. Will be purchasing additional copies for gifts and a copy for our school library. Thank you for a great book, P.H.C. Marchesi; we can't wait for the next installment!

This is a wonderful Syfy/Fantasy book for Middle Grade or YA readers. Although I believe adults would enjoy it also. I stayed up until 5am to finish reading it! I want to have my own Roomix with pillows! What an awesome way to travel! Shelby and Shauna Kitt were adorable children with amazing powers, unlike the miserable, mysterious and creepy Dale. I would love to meet Lendox and Loola. Visiting Miriax just to eat would be the next thing on my list!
