Blurb (from Goodreads):
The beautiful Elissia's family built their castle over the gate to the underworldand have protected the location for centuries. But now she is terrified, alone and at the mercy of those searching for the key. Her final hope of salvation lies in people from a different era, Tom Muldoon and The Rainbow Twins, who in a spine chilling and heart-wrenching story, battle against time and the odds to embrace love, save humanity and defend each other.
My rating: 2.5 of 5 stars
“Well, some say that the only gate to the underworld is hidden somewhere in the castle, but remember, none of you must ever try to find it or you could disappear like many others have, over the centuries.”
This was a YA fantasy story, featuring twins and time travel.
The characters in this were all okay, although I did find it hard to care about them at times. It was unfortunate the way that the twins were treated by their guardians though.
The storyline in this was a little confusing. We had the twins whose parents had disappeared, who were given crystals that turned them invisible and allowed them to get a little revenge on those who had wronged them, and then we had Tom the next door neighbour who had given the twins the crystals. He somehow managed to time travel while he was asleep, and wanted to rescue a woman called Elissia, who was being forced into an arranged marriage with her much older cousin in the year 1507. I did find it a little confusing how these storylines went together, and I did lose interest a bit.
The ending to this was fairly happy, although I was still a little confused as to how it ended that way.
