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 given a supernatural compass that allows him to travel through time and space and find wisdom in other dimensions, including 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?


“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


“I 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

This was one book I’ve been looking forward to reading since it came on my book radar earlier in 2018. The title and synopsis caught my eye during the Arts Festival in Lubbock, Texas. I’d be lying if I did not say that compasses have always intrigued me either real in hand or sitting on shelves in an antique store or REI.

Here are some quick takeaways.

The book has a compass, but so much more.

Soul traveling! Yes!

Meeting Jesus and Moses! Yes!  

Those fantastic takeaways were not discovered in the first chapter. Honestly, the first chapter made it hard for me to get involved in the book. Even though it is an important backstory to the entire novel it became challenging to read and that almost made me want to stop reading Einstein’s Compass but I persevered and I’m glad I did or I would not have discovered the cool takeaways.

This story is woven around a jeweled compass that led me on an intriguing, imaginative, journey on a different take of the early years of Albert Einstein. While the language may be a challenge for some young readers, it’s a language you’d expect for older readers and carries this story fully to the end.

The story weaves not only the alternative life of Einstein on earth but travels to other world realms of Atlantis, meeting Jesus, Moses, and of course dealing with a shape-shifting dragon. After getting past the first chapter the book becomes immersive on many levels but mainly how the authors brilliantly move the story along in large passages of time segments.

Portions of the book rely on the Bible with quoted scriptures. Remarkably, the authors showed that bullies are found in every century!

There are some minor typographical and formatting slip-ups.*  However, they did not detract from the core of the story.  Einstein’s Compass was a story that took me on a wishful and imaginative spiritual journey of not only Einstein, but a dragon, Atlantis, and a spiritual realm that we can only hope would be real once we die. It is a supernatural, fantasy story at its finest.

I hear the authors will be publishing this book as an actual paper book! Yay! This is one book I’ll gladly add to my library.

Albert nodded, his bright eyes eager. “Somehow, tri-angles seem to blend nature and science. I even see geometric designs in the flowers in the garden.”
