Spartanica by Powers Molinar #bookreview


Book Tour

Ty and Marcus Mitchell are average middle school brothers growing up north of Chicago until one night when they’re hurtled through an inter-dimensional gateway to a parallel world defined by its multiple moons and planet-wide apocalypse. As they struggle to figure out where they are and how to get home, the boys encounter refugees of “the last day” from the distant city of Atlantis and a mysterious girl called Bellana, the sole survivor and resident of the devastated city of Spartanica. Ty and Marcus soon learn they only have seven days to get home. But before they can leave, they must battle through long-extinct predators, track down the elusive Professor Otherblood, and rescue a new friend from certain death. Is all of this insanity just Ty’s overactive imagination or are the brothers truly on the brink of being stranded on the brutal wasteland known as Spartanica?

Trev’s review:
Spartanica is a journey of 2 brothers, Marcus and Ty, as they venture through a mysterious place where the language is not one they understand and even when the boys are being insulted they have no clue. This book shows the bond of the two brothers grow and even under great and mysterious threats looming against them, they could overcome anything. Spartanica is a novel that could confuse you if you don’t pay attention to the details. That being said, it has awesome AH-HA moments. It has a very good blend of darkness, mystery and humor thrown in. I would recommend this book to anyone pre-teen and up mainly based on the dark parts. I give the book 4.5/5 stars based on it’s good pace, excellent combo of darkness and humor plus the cool language I loved figuring out. It’s a fantastic journey.

When I got to the cliffhanger last sentence I was left really needing to read the next book. I think you will too.
