Editorial Reviews

Booklist
“Thrill ride through a historical incident.”
Kirkus Reviews
The time-traveling middle schoolers are back for a trip to rescue Anastasia and Alexis Romanov from their 1918 murderers. Thirteen-year-old Jonah and his sister, 11-year-old Katherine, take an unplanned trip back in time to the house in Russia where the Romanovs were executed. Time-travel criminals Gary and Hodge have escaped from time prison by tricking Daniella and Gavin, the modern-day versions of Anastasia and Alexis. Friend Chip comes along for the ride. Once they arrive in 1918, the kids learn that they have landed at the site of the Romanovs' execution, to be carried out in the early hours of the next day. They also discover, to their horror, that their Elucidator, the device that controls their movement through time, has been modified so that it cannot take them back to the present. Fortunately it can, however, make Jonah, Katherine and Chip invisible, a function the kids immediately use after guards capture them when they arrive. The story continues with the suspense fans have come to expect in this entertaining and discreetly educational series, taking everyone into the cellar where the Romanovs were murdered and acting out several scenarios while playing with time. As always, this story has great potential to spark interest in a historical event while keeping young readers entertained and fascinated. Plenty of fun and great for history teachers as well. (Science fiction. 8-12)

    Well here goes...

    So for the most part, I did kind of like the story in this book. It was fun and fast paced and had interesting comparisons between pre-timetravel Jonah and post-timetravel Jonah. But for whatever reason, I just didn't enjoy this book as much as I have others in the series and by MPH. For one thing, the lack of limits on what the people from the future can do kind of bugs me. So what, now not only can they travel through time, make people into babies again and use this device that can do just about everything and even fits into the palm of your hand, but they can also fake human remains and cure just about every uncurable disease that's been mentioned. Great. Good to know.

    Then there's the fact that the rules they do have are unclear. We can only go into the cellar for thirty seconds because ot's damaged time, but we could only go in there in the first place because it was especially damaged then.

    Am I the only one who thinks these rules are getting silly?

    I love MPH. I adored the Shadow children series, and I've been reading this series since it came out. But I'm tired of the overcomplicated, unexplained rules and the long drawn out mystery of who Jonah is. And I'm deathly afraid that's going to be a huge dissapointment. If it's going to be 'Jonah was born in the early twenty first century, and he's living out his own history as he goes through life in our time' I'm going to throw a hirst fit and write a strongly worded letter. I'll be seriously annoyed if MPH tries to back out like that.

    Anyways, I'm being a little picky and a lot ranty. Like I said, the book was alright overall, but not as good as the rest of the series, especially the first and second ones, which were my particular favorites. And did I mention that a lot of it seemed really coincidental? No? Well it was. I get that she had a lot less wiggle room because it's such a well known story, unlike most of the other books, but come on. The plot could have been constructed better. As it was, it seemed a little lazy. But that's just me.
