Fixing history and saving the world is not an easy task, even if you have an RTD available to make it possible. Sherpa has written the manual on the subject, but finds that even the daughter of the ruler of the Western World sometimes faces extraordinary challenges in the latest installment of the fantasy fiction series of Sherpa’s Adventures, “Sherpa’s Adventure: Destroying the Hologram” by Lori Costew. Sherpa is reunited with Emma Johnson and Jose Ramirez for another time traveling adventure on a mission to destroy a Hologram which has the potential to wipe out all of mankind. The trio is thrust into a race against time, bullies, and transfiguring HuBots to find a father that she has never met before in a high stakes adventure. Will the Chancellor of Positivity for the Western World ever get to sit back and enjoy world peace?

Lori Costew has done it again with another exciting sequel in her series. Creative, imaginative, and action packed, this thrilling adventure is another page turner which is certain to please those readers who are already her fans and attract even more attention by adding new ones. The characters and plot are well developed and the twists and turns which accompany the action are enough to keep a reader on the edge of their seat. The action and adventures cut across dimensions of time and space, but also dip into the reality of the life of a teen and the inner conflicts and challenges that go along with it. An awesome book standing alone, but a jewel in the set of the series. Exciting, suspenseful, and realistic.

Full of excitement, Sherpa goes on a trip to Pineville where, in the first book, she had met two new friends Emma and Jose. The friends had combated a group of bullies planted in the town by General Aveel by creating the Sherpa Kids Clubs. This club helps kids to have friends and combat bulling everywhere.

General Aveel thinks if he places evil in different time periods in past history, that good people will become nonexistent by the time their world has the Great War. The Great War has already happened in the present and Aveel lost. Now he wants another chance through time traveling to the past. He thinks that if good people can’t be found in the present, the war outcome will be in his favor.
