"The author does an admirable job of
painting pictures with words and she injects a lot of life into the two boys at
the core of the story. I recommend the book for the privilege of spending time
with Jaymin and Erik, for enjoying their friendship, and for getting away into
the world of Alasia."
-Brad Francis, author of The Savvy Demon's Guide to Godly Living
"I enjoyed reading this action-packed adventure. It is just the kind of
story that would appeal to middle grade young people .... In addition to the creation of believable
circumstances, the author writes warm three-dimensional characters with
dialogue that fits the historical context yet easy for a young reader to
be comfortable with."
