The time travel and adventures are more explosive than ever in the third installment of the this exciting series.
After his adventures with the Star, Mike wants to help others around him struggling which may end up causing more trouble than any of them could foresee. The leader of the Trackers has made it to the present time and has plans to cause problems for all those involved in the Starpassages and more. The Tracker wants to use Mike’s new friend to bring the others down and take possession of the Star himself. Now using the Star is a guessing game of danger and determining if it is worth the risk to travel becomes harder than ever.
The third book in the StarPassage series picks up right where the previous left off and takes us on more crazy adventures. The storyline continues as before with a back and forth between the Carsons’ and the Trackers giving us a view from each side. In this installment, Burbidge dives deeper into the faith and Christianity than in the previous two books, but at no point does it get too preachy for the intended audience. Young adults reading this are going to find this a fun read with the history lessons and the travel back and forth in time. Not only is it an adventure but it is a chance to learn something fun for readers. I was a little concerned that with all the travel back and forth and the changing of history we were going to see a ripple effect, and maybe that could work in to the next installment, but for die hard fantasy/science fiction fans they may have a small problem with that part of the story. Overall this was a very enjoyable read and one I think kids 8-12 years of age will probably really enjoy. I like the fact that it is a clean read and parents won’t have to worry about what their kids are reading and finding inappropriate material within. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next in the series.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. The views and opinions expressed within are my own.
