Spartanica Book Review


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?

My Review

This was an amazing and thrilling science fiction roller coaster ride. This is classified as a young adult novel, but I really enjoyed reading this book! Ty and Marcus are two brothers who wind up in an alternate world with some very interesting good and evil characters. The interaction between them as brothers reminds me of my two boys and gave me quite a few giggles throughout the book. The descriptions of the characters and the settings were brilliant and put the reader in the story feeling what the characters felt and seeing what they see. There is action, thrills and even a little young love romance. The little bit of puppy love romance came across very age appropriate, which was very refreshing. This was a great read! I'm going to let my 8 year old read it next. He's a bit of an advanced reader and loves sci fy stuff like this! This book gets a 5/5 from me!

Author Bio:


Powers Molinar grew up in the northern suburbs of Chicago and earned engineering and business degrees at the University of Iowa. While he works as a process engineer and project manager during the day, his passion is writing science fiction. His first novel, Spartanica, is the culmination of several year's of part-time effort mostly late at night and on weekends when he wasn't enjoying time with his wife and kids, all of whom were big helpers getting Spartanica written. Powers believes every kid has the potential to become exceptional. In addition to being a blast to read, he truly hopes his books spark kids' imaginations and inspire them to read more and maybe even become writers. Being a solid reader is a foundational piece of leading an exceptional life. Powers hopes his books can be part of that foundation for as many kids as possible.
