"Snow Globe Travelers: Samuel's Legacy " by K.A. Cummins Review Blast

Back Cover Copy

A mysterious snow globe shop. A multiverse at war. And a girl searching for her father.

In the heart of Vienna, twelve-year-old Sarah Ann Reisende wanders into a mysterious shop where snow globes double as portals to other worlds. After breaking the globe tethered to Earth, she discovers a cryptic note scribbled on the back of a photograph. The note links her father, who left before her third birthday, to a place called Elohi. Could this be a chance to find her father at last?

Unable to return home, Sarah follows the lead into the world of Elohi. But an army of vicious hybrids led by a genetically engineered warrior named Malvine now rules the once peaceful planet, and she becomes a target as Malvine wants to use the shop’s connections to wage war.

Can Sarah uncover the truth behind her father leaving and find a way home before Malvine gains control of the shop?

I really wanted to like "Snow Globe Travelers: Samuel's Legacy " by  K.A. Cummins but it fell short for me. I like the idea of snow globes travelers but the heroine didn't have the characteristics of a 12 year  consistently  throughout the book.  I am not sure if there is going to be another book but  the ending left me  confused. I realize this book is written for ages 10-18 and is sci-fi.

I recommend this book to younger children that likes sci-fi and I think it would be a great book for parents that read to younger children. 

I received a contemporary copy from the author and Celebrate Lit and these are my own opinions.
