 The Broken World
(Marked Girl, Book 2)
Lindsey Klingele
Hardcover,  432 pages
Harper Teen
August 29, 2017   
Fantasy, Urban Fantasy, 
Young Adult Fiction

The adventures of three teen royals and foster girl Liv, which began in The Marked Girl, conclude in this exciting sequel.

In the fantasy world of Caelum, Liv, Cedric, and Kat must attempt to defeat an evil traitor and his army to save their families and the kingdom. But the city they left behind is facing its own problems: back in Los Angeles, the sky is orange, gravity isn’t working right, and earthquakes shake the ground every few hours. Opening the portals has had devastating effects, and Liv’s best friend Shannon and Cedric’s frenemy Merek are the only ones who know what’s going on – and that tracking down the murderous Knights of Valere might be the way to fix everything.

It's a race against time as the crew must find a way to reunite and combine their quests to save both worlds.

Why I can't wait for this one!

This one immediately caught my eye! It wasn't so much the cover as the title that grabbed me. How could a world possibly be "broken"? Then I read the synopsis, and KNEW that I had to add this one to "Mount TBR" for SURE! This book is all kinds of EXCITING!! I LOVE the mix of pure fantasy and urban fantasy, as the city of Los Angeles is featured! Oh, man, this is DEFINITELY going to be a WILD ride!!!! (But I'm going for the first book first. Lol.)

This is the first, exciting novel
in this duology!!

Lindsey Klingele grew up in Western Michigan, where she read every book she could get her hands on. She eventually moved to Los Angeles (the real land of make-believe) and worked as a writers' assistant for TV shows such as "The Lying Game" and "Twisted". She still loves living in L.A., especially since it's home to great television shows, truly excellent cheeseburgers, and her pitbull, "Bighead".

What do you think of my choice?

      How nice that the author is from Michigan, too!! That IS cool!!

      Thanks for commenting!! Happy Wednesday!! <3 :)

  2. Goodness me, this series has EPIC covers, doesn't it? And an interesting mix of genres too. Nice pick!

    1. Hi, Verushka!

      Yes, it DEFINITELY does!! I think both covers are indeed EPIC!! (Although I have a slight preference for the first one.)

      I like the mix of genres, as well. Glad yo like my pick!!

      Thanks for commenting!! Happy Wednesday!! (Or perhaps Thursday already, down under, right? Lol.) <3 <3 <3 :) :) :)

  3. I can't recall even seeing this series before so thanks for sharing. I love the cover of the first one better, but I think it's because of the colors on it. I hope you get a chance to read both of them soon.

    1. Hi, Barb!

      Yeah, it's new to me, as well! But when I saw the cover above, I was intrigued. Then I read the plot synopsis, and then I just had to feature this book! I do hope to be able to read both!

      Although I like both covers, I do have a slight preference for the first. It just has more "OOOMPH". You know what I mean? Lol.

      Thanks for commenting!! Happy Wednesday!! HUGS TO YOU & THE BOYS!! <3 <3 <3 :) :) :)

  4. I really enjoyed book 1 from this series, so I can't wait to read the sequel too :D Fabulous pick!

  7. Hi María! How are you doing?
    I totally agree :) It has a striking title and the synopsis promises a lot. I think the cover could have been better but we shouldn't judge a book by its cover, right?
    Happy weekend!
