Eventually they do find out how far in the past they have gone (not going to indicate it here as not knowing "when" they are for awhile is part of the story's intrigue). Learning the date increased my enjoyment of the historical aspects of the story as they visited various places in their search for a place they could eventually call home.
There were a few parts of the story that I felt were rather contrived but overall, I definitely enjoyed the book.
Hint: Make sure you read the entire story as the authors have included an "easter egg" for those who do. :)
Crossing the Rubicon (The Journey) is unlike anything else in the genre I have ever read. It's thought provoking. It's heartwarming. It keeps you enthralled (I read it straight through - not a lot of sleep for me that night). The author finds ways to incorporate history with modern technology in seamless ways, without raising the suspicion of the historical characters.
Could this time shift truly happen? I don't know that we will ever know, but the author certainly makes a good argument for it. And, if it ever happens, I truly hope that there is a Trinity in the mix :)
As heartbreaking as it is uplifting Crossing The Rubicon is a book everyone should read at least once. This book was narrated beautifully. I felt as if I was granted a rare glimpse into a diary that was never meant to be shared. I laughed, I cried and at times I even became angry yet.....I couldn't put this book down. I devoured the pages and hung onto them as if teetering on a thin wire hanging over some dark chasm that threatened to swallow me whole if I didn't proceed. Yes, the book was just that dang good.
I loved how the Author put such a unique spin on time travel. The journey the group goes on is very "real" and the places they visit for the most part do exist. I also appreciated that the Author kept the characters humble. They didn't walk around like they knew everything or were better than the people they encountered. No, these characters behaved exactly as I imagine any of us would thrust into a time and place we knew nothing(or very little) about.
In the end the story isn't perfect but in some ways its flaws are part of the charm. With that being said I will be rating Crossing The Rubicon by R.C. Richter ★★★★.
*This book was reviewed through Netgalley but purchased upon finishing. All opinions are my own and I was not compensated in any way for providing them.
It loses a star for being a bit over-priced. I got it with a promotional discount, but feel this would be much more appropriately priced at $2.99 or $3.99, possibly even $4.99.
Teenagers go spelunking and fall through a time-warp. Seven kids enter the time-warp but the one 'Least Likely to Hook Up' dies serendipitously.
If I am talking over your head with words like spelunking or serendipitously, this is the book for you. If, however, you have reached the age of adolescence and can read beyond a third-grade level, avoid this book. It is a time-suck.
