I've read portal fantasy, but I loved the unique premise this story offered.
Sarah Ann Reisende stumbles upon a small shop in Vienna that holds shelf upon shelf of snowglobes--all doorways to other universes! Within pages, Sarah's knee-deep in trouble and without any friendly adult supervision. (She handled it much better than I would have!) In her debut, Cummins offers the reader danger, mystery, and intrigue wrapped within a thrilling tale.

I love K.A. Cummins’ book Samuel’s Legacy. She has created a believable alternate universe and a magical way to enter that world. Most of the characters in this world are very similar to humans on earth but the word patterns of their speech are different but easy to follow and adapt to. The people encountered in the world of Elohi are much like humans you may encounter in our world - some are caring and some are mean. Cummins has also created some evil creatures and vividly describes them.

This is an awesome book for all ages! I work with kids and got this book in order to recommend it to the students. But I found, not surprising though considering my taste in reading, that I love this book. Incredibly unique with great characters and a compelling story, this gets a big recommendation from me to kids and adults alike.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

2.5 stars, rounded up because it's self-pub.

This is pretty fun and creative; I dug the concept of snow globes as modes of multiversal travel. Sarah's narration tends to skew old (“Vienna's bustling activity and graceful architecture echoed a lineage rooted in culture and gentility”), but the novel's fairly fast-paced and dialogue-heavy so it's not too objectionable.

Not really diverse at all (there's mention of dark hair and olive skin, and that's about it), but honestly, I'd rather have no rep t
