Publisher's Weekly says about The Map Across Time:
“fast-paced and tightly plotted, which means that the reader will be quickly drawn into the complex twists and turns of the story and, in fairy tale tradition, led toward a surprising yet satisfying conclusion.”
About the book:
An ancient curse plagues the kingdom of Sherbourne, and unless it is stopped, all will fall to ruin. The King, obsessed with greed, cannot see the danger. But his teenage twin children, Aletha and Adin, know they must act. A hermit leads Adin to a magical map that will send him back in time to discover the origin of the curse. Once back, Adin must find the Keeper, who protects the Gate of Heaven, but all he has is a symbol as a clue to guide him. Unbeknown to him, Aletha follows her brother, but they both arrive in Sherbourne’s past at the precipice of a great war and there is little time to discover how to counteract the curse.
Once unexpected disaster after another forces the twins to make difficult choices. Adin’s only hope for saving his kingdom is to return to the future to manipulate events so his quest can succeed. Through his trials and failures, Adin learns that nothing can stop heaven from accomplishing its goal, and that all events work for the good of those who trust heaven.”
