Ty and Marcus Mitchell are average middle school brothers growing up north of Chicago until one night when they’re hurtled through an inter-dimensional gateway to a parallel world defined by its multiple moons and planet-wide apocalypse. As they struggle to figure out where they are and how to get home, the boys encounter refugees of “the last day” from the distant city of Atlantis and a mysterious girl called Bellana, the sole survivor and resident of the devastated city of Spartanica. Ty and Marcus soon learn they only have seven days to get home. But before they can leave, they must battle through long-extinct predators, track down the elusive Professor Otherblood, and rescue a new friend from certain death. Is all of this insanity just Ty’s overactive imagination or are the brothers truly on the brink of being stranded on the brutal wasteland known as Spartanica?

Faith's (Age 12) Review – Spartanica is 388 pages of captivating story that I read for hours at a time. The writing was fantastic and I love how you can get attached to the wonderfully thought out characters. In Spartanica, we follow the mystical adventures of Ty and Marcus to a strange place where they are trying to find out where they are and how to get out alive! Or is it all just part of Ty’s big imagination?
There are so many unique names and unique places. I loved the authors use of symbols, it enhanced the mystery. I loved reading this book for school and on my free time. This book was scary, happy, intense and entertaining at the same time. The author of this book is very talented to create such a unique book. The Spartanica adventure is fascinating and a great way to spend your free time! I hope Powers Molinar makes many more books about Spartanica and Ty and Marcus because I would love to follow them on their next adventure. Spartanica and Powers Molinar have inspired me to try to write my own amazing story. In conclusion, this is an amazing book I hope all of you get to read.
Powers Molinar grew up in the northern suburbs of Chicago and earned engineering and business degrees at the University of Iowa. While he works as a process engineer and project manager during the day, his passion is writing science fiction. His first novel, Spartanica, is the culmination of several year's of part-time effort mostly late at night and on weekends when he wasn't enjoying time with his wife and kids, all of whom were big helpers getting Spartanica written.
Powers believes every kid has the potential to become exceptional. In addition to being a blast to read, he truly hopes his books spark kids' imaginations and inspire them to read more and maybe even become writers. Being a solid reader is a foundational piece of leading an exceptional life. Powers hopes his books can be part of that foundation for as many kids as possible.
