"Follow John Kemp and his unusual band of misfits, as they journey where others have only dreamt of going," says the blurb. Really? Without Kirk or Picard or warp drive? This is a YA book that is really, really a YA book, achingly predictable, derivative, and -- worse--second in a series that may never end, These characters confront terrible problems: the book starts in the perspective of Nathan, rueful that he's never learned to wield a sword. He reflects that the battle is all his fault, because he chose to be a camp counselor. If he had a sword, he'd most likely fall on it. But we don't get off that easy. We soon learn that this Nathan has more special abilities than simply solipsistic guilt -- he is, of course, a savant. Aren't they all?
Well, they don't all have red ropes and silver ropes and an alternate history this boring.
I wanted to read this entire book to see what it might contain. It contains words on a page about things such as red robes and silver ropes, and a story which kept putting me to sleep. Not even Laura, with her emerald eyes and her face that tends to contort when she's stressed, could hold my interest.
The plot does squeek along, but oh so tritely. The ambiance is more suitable for Mall of America or Piccadilly Circus than an alternate world at the level of sword-swinging. For preteens this story might be fun (this being a second volume of a series I really can't tell, since it has no beginning or end of consequence), but surely for no one older: the book is aimed for double digit IQs or the sheltered young, and may hit its mark. I wouldn't know, not being challenged in either regard.

Agree with others who rated 2 stars or less. Poorly written, no depth, etc. Forgave all that as plot was decent, so tried to push through to end.Read more
