After running away from Mrs. Asher in Book One, now she was to return to Manhattan, where she and her brother, Dekker were wanted fugitives. Their task was to murder Uncle Ruho. If they failed, Ram was going to bomb the city.
Will they succeed? Will Mina and her brother get caught?
This was the conclusion to the Time Zero trilogy. For a dystopian story that I assume to happen in the future, I am absolutely revolted by the fact that an over 60 years old man was to wed a 16 year old girl! Sadly, this is the reality for child brides in the world.
Both sides of Uncle Ruho and Ram abused the theology of religion to eliminate their opposition. Throughout history, human beings have been killing each other in the name of religion and beliefs. This is reality.
The ending was much better than I anticipated for a young adult novel.
Percy Fawcett was a British explorer in the 1900s who was sent to Brazil to survey the land. The rubber trade was being affect by the disputes between Bolivia and Brazil. Fawcett was intrigued by their Amazonian guide’s story of an ancient city filled with gold after he himself discovered broken pottery in an uncharted grounds. He wanted to continue his search but was constantly laughed at by his peers. He spent so much time away from his family that his wife and children despised him. But, he was determined….
This movie was based on a book of the same name. This book, in turn, recalled many of the actual events that happened to Percy Fawcett. The historical recollection of the prejudice that the English had towards the aboriginal population in the jungle. In addition to that, how people who were kind to them were also ridiculed.
Note: Tom Holland (from Spider-Man) was the actor,who was his son in this movie.

Santiago, was a Spanish shepherd boy (more like a young man as he spoke of falling in love with young ladies), who had a dream one day about a treasure in Egypt. After speaking with some interesting characters like a gypsy, an old king and ultimately, the alchemist, he was determined to search for this mysterious treasure in his dream. Was there really a treasure? Or was it all just a fleeting dream?
Life is about taking chances and following your heart. That is the main message in this story. How many times have you felt that you wanted to do something or take a risk so badly and because you didn’t, you would think about it incessantly. Of course, I wouldn’t apply this to gambling in a casino….
To be logical and secure, is ideal in life. However, sometimes stretching out into the unknown as long as you have a secure base, is a good idea. Especially in this technological society, even going out in the real world to meet people is a calculated risk.
