“Savarese is skilled at contrasting medieval and modern worlds, flowing between them in a manner that is enlightening and creates no confusion in the transition process, which creates a seamless story based not just on one or two main characters, but a host of special interests and objectives. Fantasy fans of high school age and older who look for a blend of mystery, history, and spell-binding intrigue will relish the journey and discoveries which defy time, space, and death. Complex story that comes alive and is satisfyingly unpredictable, and firmly rooted in strong characters. A story that is hard to put down.” — Diane Donovan, Midwest Review
“Savarese's novel is an inventive and original portal fantasy that avoids the genre's most overused clichés. At moments the story evokes Doctor Who and A Wrinkle in Time (Tyler is a brainy kid with a love of physics), though the plot is unlike anything the reader is likely to have read. Savarese piles incident upon incident, and readers who enjoy a quirky science fiction story with magic and a hint of romance will find much here to entertain.” — The US Review of Books
