Once upon a time, in a land far, far away (Los Angeles)…
When Cedric, crowned prince of Caelum, and his fellow royal friends (including his betrothed, Kat) find themselves stranded in modern-day L.A. via a magical portal and an evil traitor named Malquin, all they want to do is get home to Caelum—soon. Then they meet Liv, a filmmaker foster girl who just wants to get out of the system and on with her life. As she and Cedric bond, they'll discover that she's more connected to his world than they ever could've imagined…and that finding home is no easy task…
Worlds collide in The Marked Girl, an exciting fantasy tale turned upside down.
Wow, I really enjoyed this book! It was different, enraging, and I was really fascinated by everything that was going on-it was just so readable! And like the synopsis says, this is a fantasy tale upside down, because it was strangers exploring Earth instead of someone exploring a new world!
Really enjoyed these characters! Liv with her issues that turn out to connect her to this world, Cedric who's supposed to be a ruler, but has doubts, Kat the warrior and voice of reason, and all the others, they were real and it was so easy to read their adventures!
I really enjoyed this world of Guardians and the world of Caelum, and the bad guys, and how things worked, and the keys. The history that was learned, the two forces that they have to deal with, which makes things more complicated in that ending!
There were parts that were hard to read. Like the way that they treated Liv. And the attitudes and actions of the one group, what they did, was horrible! Oh, and one of the bad guys, that twist at the end, that was pretty gut-wrenching!
Loved this book, and with that ending, I definitely want the sequel! Which hopefully will have an equally beautiful cover!
