How did Albert Einstein come up with his wondrous theories of light and time?
In Einstein’s Compass: A YA Time Traveler Adventure, a young Albert is gifted a supernatural compass that allows him to travel through time and space. He finds wisdom in other dimensions, like the lost city of Atlantis, but evil forces seek the power of the compass, including a monstrous, shape-shifting dragon from a different age.
Can the compass protect Albert from such villainy?
Anyone who reads my reviews will recall that I am not a fan of high fantasy. I read the summary of this book and loved the concept from the start; however, I was almost thrown by the prologue. I’m very glad I kept going! In addition to the unique concept from the author, it was fascinating to think of Einstein as a child. When most think of him it is with his wild hair, similar to the cover photo used on the book. To imagine him growing up with such a mind was a great treat as well.
I really hope that Ms. Blair and Ms. Bright continue this concept and create more books with this theory. It was wonderful to see everything play out in the realm and the concept of those folks (not named for spoiler sake) sitting together was quite amusing.
I was provided with a free copy of the audio book for my honest review. The views expressed here are entirely my own.
