"You've heard of a "stay-cation" how about a sleep-cation. Khanna writes about alternate realities, taking her characters to far-flung places. Of course their adventures aren't just sightseeing tours; danger and a quest are also part of the journey. Khanna is adept at keeping the storyline coherent, especially when it gets deep. The story is entertaining." - Donna Smith for US Review of Books
"It was really engaging and relevant, story opening was super compelling, and the concept is neat. I like the exotic setting. The story seems age-appropriate. An overall enjoyable read." - Judge, Writer's Digest 21st Annual Self-Published Book Awards
