Spartanica is a book about two ordinary brothers named Ty and Marcus who live with their Aunt Andi.  One day Ty wakes up and notices a glowing light coming from Andi's artifact room. Wondering what it is, he decides to go investigate.  As Ty is still investigating, the light suddenly stops glowing.  While Ty is puzzling over what the light could have been, Marcus comes to see what Ty is up to.  Ty then explains to Marcus about the glowing light and together they explore the artifact room.  In an instant, the light starts glowing again and they find it is coming from one of their aunt's artifacts.  In the blink of an eye, Ty and Marcus suddenly find themselves suspended in the air surrounded by white.  Will Ty and Marcus find out what happened and where they are?  Will they find a way back home?  Find out in this epic sci-fi adventure, Spartanica!


Spartanica is an awesome book that is chock-full of suspense and action.  I never wanted to put it down.  It was very creative in a way that was lifelike in parts.  The author, Powers Molinar, made the characters very likable. A part in the book that I really enjoyed was when Ty was dreaming his Aunt Andi was making chocolate crepes and bacon for breakfast when he was actually asleep in the woods.  A part I didn't like about the book was that each chapter switched between the perspectives of three people, which made it confusing.   But it wasn't so confusing that I couldn't understand it; it made me pay more attention to each chapter.  This book was so great it left me eagerly anticipating book two.  I would recommend this book to ages eleven through eighteen.
