About Snow Globe Travelers: Samuel’s Legacy
A mysterious snow globe shop. A multiverse at war. And a girl searching for her father.
In the heart of Vienna, twelve-year-old Sarah Ann Reisende wanders into a mysterious shop where snow globes double as portals to other worlds. After breaking the globe tethered to Earth, she discovers a cryptic note scribbled on the back of a photograph. The note links her father, who left before her third birthday, to a place called Elohi. Could this be a chance to find her father at last?
Unable to return home, Sarah follows the lead into the world of Elohi. But an army of vicious hybrids led by a genetically engineered warrior named Malvine now rules the once peaceful planet, and she becomes a target as Malvine wants to use the shop’s connections to wage war.
Can Sarah uncover the truth behind her father leaving and find a way home before Malvine gains control of the shop?
Samuel’s Legacy is the first book in the Snow Globe Travelers series, a middle-grade science fiction adventure series.
I’ve been thanking Him all day long for the journey of writing Snow Globe Travelers and for the people who traveled the path with me, even if it was only for a short while.
Today, I discovered Snow Globe Travelers received a Readers’ Favorite Five-Star review, and I thought of the three ladies who edited and proofed and of all of you who have encouraged me. With God and all of you, this book entered the world.
Excerpt: “Nearly every person alive has some familiarity with snow globes, their connection with holidays and the tranquil, snowy images that make them seem both mysterious and irresistible. In her science fantasy adventure for children and preteens, Snow Globe Travelers: Samuel’s Legacy, K.A. Cummins takes the mystery and allure of the snow globe and goes one step further. I loved following Sarah as she gamely sets out to explore new worlds — such a marvelous feat of courage for a sheltered girl whose prior experience was her family’s farm. Cummins’ plot kept me engaged and enjoying the story, and her characters are credible and well-defined. The mystery of Samuel and his disappearance is a thread the reader can’t help but want to keep on untangling along with Sarah. I’m looking forward to the next book in this series. Snow Globe Travelers: Samuel’s Legacy will appeal to science fantasy lovers of all ages and it’s most highly recommended.”—Jack Magnus for Readers’ Favorite
