ABOUT THE STAR PASSAGE SERIES:
The series is built so that it can have an almost limitless number of adventures. It would make a great TV or movie series in that way. The series is about never giving up hope and overcoming. It begins with a seemingly perfect family that loves adventures together. They find an innocent Christmas tree topper under mysterious conditions while on one of their vacations and shine it up. They use it for 4 uneventful years and only when the family runs into great difficulty, following the dad returning from a deployment with what is determined to be PTSD, does the tree topper reveal itself as an acient relic that has chosen them. It turns out to have the power to transport them to various historical timeperiods and meet various individuals that can help the family through its personal crisis. This sets the stage for a series of adventerous "passages" that are also extraordinarily dangerous. There is not just danger in having to learn the rules of time travel on the fly or being thrust unexpectedly into strange and sometimes dangerous circumstances, but the world of time travel is peopled by Trackers. These are individuals who lived wicked lives and their punishment is to be imprisoned in history for eternity. They cannot interact with history nor can they come to the present, but they can physically interact with any travelers and desire beyond all other things to acquire the relic for they believe it will free them from their prison. Thus any "passage" has a puzzle to unlock to help the family and is fraught with natural dangers but is also on a time limit before the powerful Trackers, who are drawn by the use of the relic, arrive on the scene.
