PRAISE FOR EINSTEIN’S COMPASS:
“This is an amazing story. Everyone should thoroughly enjoy reading it. I was impressed with how the authors managed to incorporate the known information on the lost continent of Atlantis, Light Workers, souls, reincarnation, time travel and the early years of Albert Einstein before he became famous, into a mesmerizing work of fiction readers will have difficulty putting down.”
— Doug Simpson, Author of We Lived in Atlantis
” could not stop reading this book. I read at stop lights and in line at the grocery store. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough.”
— award winning children’s author, Lisa Reinicke
“This is highly recommended for those who enjoy a saga of good vs. evil that spans tens of thousands of years, for readers who devour novels that blend history and fantasy, and for anyone who is simply looking for a unique story that they will not want to put down.”
— Author Jacqui Murray, Ask a Tech Teacher blog
“The weaving of the story between the religion realm and Albert’s world is a captivating tale that keeps the reader’s attention. The good and evil of the timeless religious realm is like watch a chess match to see who outwits whom … I hope there is a next book somewhere in my future.”
— Rox Burkey, author of the Enigma Series

Clueless Gent’s Rating

4 star rating

Einstein’s Compass is a highly imaginative, yet compelling, time travel adventure. It begins in 10,400 BCE on the mystical island of Atlantis, within the Islands of Poseidon, so it grabbed my attention right away. This Atlantis is populated by a subset of mankind totally in tune to the energies of light and love.

From Atlantis we jump forward to nineteenth century Europe, and we meet young Albert Einstein. The authors quickly connect Albert to the storyline that started in Atlantis, and the adventure begins.

As expected, there is an abundance of fantasy, but it is spotted with just enough reference to historical facts so as not to spin out of control. I remained highly entertained from beginning to end!

The Stars of Einstein’s Compass

The main stars of this story are young Einstein and his somewhat magical compass. The compass may not be an actual “character” – but it certainly ties the entire story together. Thus, I consider it a star.

Since Albert Einstein was, in fact, a scientific celebrity, I found it very interesting how the authors spun the storyline to get Albert on the path to achieve everything he would later achieve. Although the story ends in the early twentieth century, shortly after Einstein gets his first job, we can see that he is firmly on his destined road.

No fantasy would be complete without evil. The evil lust for power was present in Atlantis, personified in a man so evil that he barely flinched when he was accidentally turned into a twelve foot dragon! Further, this dragon probably invented the phrase you are what you eat! He had the ability to change into the form of anyone, provided he ate them first.

Lusting for the power in Albert’s compass, the dragon will stop at nothing to get it back. You may think it easy for a dragon to overtake young Einstein, but it’s complicated. (I think identifying those complications in this review may take away some of the enjoyment, should you choose to read this story. If your interest is piqued, however – GOOD!)

Technically Speaking

There were a number of SPAG issues in the book. However, in fairness to the authors, I will say that I read a PDF copy of the text. The conversion to PDF seemed to negatively impact the overall formatting of the book. For example, words with double consonants would sometimes drop the second consonant. Well would be displayed as wel. I imagine that could also be the reason some commas were missing. Nevertheless, the impact of these problems on my overall enjoyment of the story was minimal.

The pacing was nice. There was a very gradual lead into the climax. I was also satisfied with how the authors ended the story.

There were a few colloquialisms that did not seem appropriate for the time, but I imagine they enhance the enjoyment of young adult readers.

The story touched on the anti-semitism present in Germany at that time. However, the story also contained some biblical characters and many references to God’s love.  

This is a story of ethereal time travel. This is a story of good vs. evil. Further, this is a story of light and love.  

I enjoyed this story very much, and I highly recommend it.

I received a free copy of this book from Lone Star Book Blog Tours in exchange for my honest review.
