4.32 of 5 stars 4.32  ·  rating details  ·  47 ratings  ·  16 reviews
Shelby Kitt never gets lost. Shauna, his sister, never gets sick. As far as most people are concerned, the inseparable Kitt twins are odd 13-year-olds. No one, however, can guess how extraordinary they are until the vice consul of a planet from another dimension recruits them for a dangerous mission. From that moment on, Shelby and Shauna Kitt discover that the universe is ...more

In A Nutshell:
I do not read a large amount of science fiction, but Shelby and Shauna Kitt and the Dimensional Holes may change that for me. The characters are realistic and engaging. The setting is magical--I want to take a trip to Miriax. The story drew me in and kept me guessing until the last page. I hope there is more to come for Shelby, Shauna, Jit, Vanessa, Marian and Lendox because I very much want to see them all again.

Earth is in trouble. Aliens from a planet in a parallel dimens

Sure this book had engaging characters and an action packed plot, but most of all it had the setting of Miriax! Miriax was the perfect combo of nature and sci-fi technology. Can you believe the entire capital is built into a tree? How about that? The eathrlings trying to adjust to this new way of life were hilarious.

Shelby and Shauna Kitt are thirteen-year-old twins with amazing powers. Shelby has enhanced reflexes and can pilot anything. Shauna has glowing hands and is an awesome healer. Other

This is a wonderful Syfy/Fantasy book for Middle Grade or YA readers. Although I believe adults would enjoy it also. I stayed up until 5am to finish reading it! I want to have my own Roomix with pillows! What an awesome way to travel! Shelby and Shauna Kitt were adorable children with amazing powers, unlike the miserable, mysterious and creepy Dale. I would love to meet Lendox and Loola. Visiting Miriax just to eat would be the next thing on my list!
P.H.C. Marchesi’s Shelby and Shauna Kitt and the Dimensional Holes took me on an adventure I did not expect. Shelby and Shauna are hand-picked by the Vice Consul of Miriax, named Lendox, to help save Earth and Miriax from total destruction at the hands of the Klodians. Along the way, the twins receive training in a military fort, learn they have “super powers”, and explore the world of Miriax. The greatest aspect of this book is P.H.C. Marchesi’s excellent world building, and Miriax really can o ...more

Not only did I love this book, I couldn’t put this book down.
P.H.C. Marchesi has created a whole other universe, a place where you can get lost in forever. It took me a little while to read, but I was glad I could savor the moment in Miriax.

I am so jealous of Shelby and Shauna, they have cool powers, they go to go to other dimensions and they get to meet totally new people. I only wish something like this only existed. Although if I were them I would probably be scared out of m

On a distant planet in a parallel dimension, evil aliens reside on Klodius. Earth is in grave danger as these aliens have discovered a way to create dimensional holes to travel and reach it. These aliens feed off the negative energy coming from Earth and they want the planet to be overrun by all things that cause this negative energy.

Miriax is another planet in the same dimension; however, in contrast to Klodius, it feeds off the positive energy coming from Earth. If the aliens from Klodius succ

Marchesi is a phenomenal storyteller, roping the reader into this wonderful tale of other dimensions and species. Though the story revolves around two thirteen-year-old protagonists, I’d have to say that this is a book for everyone. Parents can read it to their children, MG and YA readers will eat it up, and adults will enjoy the premise, themes, and overall fun this book has to offer.

Not only does this novel have a very interesting storyline, but Marchesi’s writing capabilities also shine thro
This is a brilliantly original idea, created in vivid detail. The two worlds the author has created alongside Earth are enthralling. I was reminded of Arthur C Clarke’s “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”, as there are many aspects to the settings and creatures that seem almost more magical than sci fi.

The story powers along right from the start. It has the same kind of pace and structure as the Harry Potter stories, with apparently ordinary

Shelby and Shauna Kitt are kids with special abilities and an abundance of “positive energy.” It is this unique energy that makes them the most suitable people on the planet to save not only our world but also the parallel world of Miriax from the Klodians who inhabit a third parallel world. Dimensional holes have opened between Miriax and Earth, and between Earth and Klodius. They must be closed and Shelby and Shauna are called on to help. These young heroes are engaging and likeable. The adult ...more

When Shauna and Shelby Kitt are "drafted" to save Earth and another good planet Miriax from the evil Klodians, they have no "earthly" idea what they've gotten themselves into. In this young teen adventure, the author has created an exciting world filled with space aleins, evil Klodians, frightening space ghosts, healers, stitching spiders, giant bats and many other fun and quirky details and situations that you might expect from a story involving multiple dimensions. The characters are well deve ...more
This is one of the best new YA books out there! You can't put it down once you start. The characters, the pace of the story, the ending - everything is great! The world of Miriax is just incredible. If you like sci-fi or fantasy, this book is definitely a must!

Recommends it for: Teens (12 and up) and adults
Fantastic new novel! I was surprised to enjoy it as much as I did, with it being a young adult sci-fi adventure. Even though the main characters are thirteen, this book is entertaining for adults as well - especially once you get to Miriax, which is one of the most entertaining and interesting worlds EVER imagined. I also liked the variety of characters (teens and adults), all of whom are interesting in their own rights. I highly recommend this book to teens and adults who enjoy fantasy and long ...more
For some reason I never got around to reviewing this book. I had planned to, but it has taken me a year to do so. Shelby and Shauna Kitt was a fun book to read, but it sometimes had trouble keeping my full attention. The plot was a little confusing at times, but it usually kept me interested. I'd say read if you want a quick easy read!

I received this book as a Goodreads giveaway from the author. I did enjoy it but as a long-time reader of children's books and science fiction, I found it rather disappointing. It's a fun story and the author created an interesting world but it's not up to the quality of other children's science fiction that I've read.
This was a great book. I hope there are more!

I have a Ph.D. degree in English literature and teach British literature to undergraduates. I'm currently working on book two of "Shelby and Shauna Kitt." I love YA fiction (fantasy/sci-fi), especially when it has interesting characters and ideas. As a child, I lived in many different countries, and experienced many different cultures. I studied at an International School and had friends from all ...more
