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…
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This was a YA fantasy story set in LA.
I quite liked Liv as a character, but I wasn’t quite so keen on Cedric. Liv seemed quite focused on her goals, and quite set on protecting those she loved, which Cedric seemed a bit torn at times.
The storyline in this was about Cedric and two friends going through a portal from their own dimension – a place called Caelum, and ending up in modern-day LA. Then we had Liv and Cedric running into each other, and the story went from there, with Liv finding that she was actually key to Cedric getting back to Caelum.
We did get a bit of romance, but it was in the form of a love triangle, as Cedric was already engaged to a girl from his own dimension.
The ending to this was a cliff-hanger.
