In Shadowzone, the first book in the Shadowzone series, Rose sets up the tension in this parallel Earth story in which a virus is unleashed and affects one Earth but not the other.
The alternating point of view characters from both Earths provide insight into what’s occurring. The reader has a fuller picture than the characters. And yet there is enough hidden for the reader to keep reading to find out what happens.

Time travel, alternate worlds, and societal sub-cultures are blended into a great plot, and a gripping and relevant read. The environmental stewardship aspect of this story echoes our current day challenges, as do the almost prescient references to a dangerous virus. Characters were well drawn and the reader is cheering for their success. The three books in the series flow smoothly together. A great read for middle school ages and up, to both engage interest and build vocabulary. Highly recommend this series!

This is the first book of a series by one of my favorite authors. Although at first, I found the book a little slow to get into, once the first couple of chapters were read, I found the usual exciting story that I could not put down until it was finished. The ending left me ready to read the next book titled “Into the Web.”

In this fast paced novel flashes of lightening from a violent storm leave Ben seeing images from another world. The reader quickly learns that Ben is seeing a girl named Charlie from a parallel universe. It doesn’t take long for their lives to collide and become entwined as they work to fight against the leaders who are on a mission to complete a deadly assignment. Packed with non-stop action and cliff hangers, Rose does an excellent job at leaving the reader wanting more.
