  • Review | The Universes Inside the Lighthouse

amazon Goodreads
Twins, Emma and Charlie Nelson, aren’t too excited about spending their summer vacation on a remote island with little to do. Bored, with the exception of a slight dating prospect, the teens go camping. Only to find that there is much more to life than what this world would have them believe.

Stuck in parallel universes and on extraordinary planets Charlie, Emma, and their newfound friends race against time to save themselves and the universes from succumbing to The Void and it’s minion, Vik.

Hott Review:

What I liked:The Universes Inside the Lighthouse is a really cool book. It’s a complete non-stop adventure! I really enjoyed this book from the first to the last word. The published synopsis & cover do not do it justice.
The multi-universes and time traveling elements along with the teen heroics made this an utter win for teen readers.
I LOVED The Void. The terror in this book is essentially a reference to depression and self-absorption. I think these are both very important topics that need to be shown as an enemy, especially to teens!
What I didn’t like: The science references can be construed as anti-Christian, so if you’re not into fantasy that calls that into question, this isn’t the book for you.
