Book Review: The Stone Gate by Mark Mann

(I received this free ebook in exchange for an honest review)
Goodreads summary: A strange rock in the forest. A mysterious crystal. A full moon. An ancient secret. How do you find your way home when you've never left? Twins Jack and Kaya live in a small seaside town in Australia. When they see a dazzling white light shining from a giant rock in the woods near their home, it takes them on an adventure to a place both familiar and yet like nowhere they know. But where exactly are they? And can they find their way back in time? The Stone Gate is an exciting and fast-paced action adventure that brings climate change / global warming vividly to life for young adult readers.

Brother and sister Jack and Kaya live in Australia. Set by the full moon the siblings go back in time and their journey to get back home is not as easy as it seems. They travel to through a stone portal and end up in different realities of time.  

The story was great and the transitions that took place in the story was written very nice. The reading was light and easy. I found myself sometimes losing time because I would get lost in this story. I love a good adventure with a mixture of fantasy and this story brought it.  I thought overall the whole plot was a great idea and the way it took off was nicely written. I look forward to reading more works by this author in the future.
