Kirkus Reviews – “Two teenagers embark on a school project that turns into an exciting, dangerous, and globe-trotting adventure in this YA sci-fi novel. In his debut novel, Jacobs tells a Dan Brown–style adventure story for a high school audience—one that’s full of puzzles to decode and bold, perilous actions… Jacobs keeps the plot moving throughout by introducing unexpected twists. Entertaining on several levels, and sure to win fans for a planned series.”

San Francisco Book Review – “Marc Jacobs’ novel, The Coordinate, will not disappoint your high expectations. With action and unsuspecting twists throughout the story, you’ll be viewing the wonders of the world in a completely different way than before and will be reevaluating your thoughts about the state of our current world.”

Self-Publishing Review – “The idea that there are hidden secrets about humanity’s past will continually fascinate readers, and it is done to great effect in The Coordinate. … The novel is a great work of adventure, as if we’re following a team of Lara Croft and Indiana Jones as teenagers. … Jacobs does a wonderful job towing the line between a whimsical adventure that is far from reality and an engaging plot that feels relatable to a younger audience. From abducted Harvard professors and cryptic puzzles to FBI raids and secrets hidden in the stars, this relatively fast read will keep you turning pages until the last one. … The Coordinate is a thrilling adventure from an ambitious and creative author.”
