Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up-An enjoyable, if flawed, adventure story. When she finds her friend Neil asleep in the woods, 16-year-old Jodi Greer touches his arm, expecting to wake him. Instead, the ground opens up and pulls her into Aten, the world of Neil's dreams. There she meets and falls in love with Caden, next in line to be leader of the Dani. While trying to find their way home, Neil and Jodi discover that Neil's father has been held captive on Aten since he disappeared three years earlier and that Aten is actually Earth many years in the future. Jodi's first-person narration lacks immediacy and limits knowing the impressions of other characters. There are too many coincidences: Jodi happens to be wearing a necklace that identifies her as a Nera-a powerful group of women-that she happened to find a month before; she gets thrown in jail just as the Neras' leader is escaping; and the leaders of two of Aten's clans discover that they are half-brothers. The characterizations are a bit wooden, and certain plot elements are easily predictable. However, Sinclair does sustain a mood and pace that keep readers wanting to know what happens. Try this with those who aren't quite ready for the nuances of Madeleine L'Engle's An Acceptable Time (Farrar, 1989).-Lisa Prolman, Greenfield Public Library, MA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    A Terrific Fantasy!

    This is a wonderful, imaginative fantasy that should be a natural for reading groups. The characters are real, even the people who live in the fantastic world of Aten, and the situations are exciting. I loved the enchanted forest and the wandering maze. I can hardly wait for the sequel.
