The Future Door

Title: The Future Door
Author: Jason Lethcoe
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Genre: Fiction 

The Future Door by Jason Lethcoe is the second installment in ‘No Place Like Holmes’ series and begins where the last one went off. The story revolves around detective and mechanical genius Rupert Snodgrass and his 12-year old nephew Griffin Sharpe, who has a unique ability to observe even the minutest details of everything around him. In a striving attempt to reach the level of Sherlock Holmes and becomes the most famous detective in London, Snodgrass invents a time machine, which gets stolen by his nemesis Nigel Moriarty. And thus begins the time bending adventure of the Uncle-Nephew team to save London and themselves from the evil of Moriarty and his henchmen. 
Though this book does not match the writing of Sherlock Holmes’ books in any manner, but the stimulating flow of the story which includes giant mechanical spiders and strange future worlds will surely keep the targeted readers glued. There is no mystery in the book and it is better to keep your logic aside and consider the time-travel part as a fantasy and not a science-fiction. 
The book contains small chapters ranging from 3 to 8 pages and also features a quiz, two mini-mysteries, and instructions on how to brew a pot of English tea at the end. 
Just like many more children books, The Future Door is also enjoyable by any age group and can be a part of read-aloud family story time. But this book will be cherished most by young adults. 

Rating: 3.5/5
