The Quick and Dirty: Girl finds parallel dimension where she is not only the heir to the throne but where her grandmother is the evil queen intent on keeping her power and bringing darkness to both worlds.
Maray is an ambassador’s daughter who discovers that there is another world just beyond the mist in her town of Vienna, Austria. When she is saved from a Yutu (a wolf-bear type creature) by a border guard, he decides to take her back to the royal court because she is the spitting image of the queen regent. Jemin and Maray’s relationship develops as he helps her navigate the palace and protects her from those who wish to harm her. Maray’s true lineage is revealed and secrets are unearthed about the women in her family, the magic that runs through her veins, and what needs to be done save the two worlds from being overrun by the darkness.
This was a new to me author whose prose and story development I really enjoyed. The characters were compelling and I’m excited to see how Maray resolves the conflict with her grandmother in the end. My only qualm was that I was expecting the rescue of certain important character to be a bit more exciting but overall I thought it was an excellent read.
** I was provided an ARC of this book in return for a voluntary and honest review.**
“Remember that dagger I gave you yesterday?”
How could she forget the dagger—a token of her missing mother? Had it only been yesterday?
It felt as if the whole world had changed overnight. As a matter of fact, it hadn’t. But instead of one world, now there were two.
When sixteen-year-old Maray Johnson explores her new neighborhood, she hardly expects to see a medieval sword fight—especially not one that leaves her first responder to a severely injured boy, who despite all bone-deep wounds, has the nerve to kidnap her into an alternate dimension.
This is Maray’s first trip to Allinan, a world with a falling apart monarchy. It is also how she meets Jemin Boyd, a guard of dimensions, who patrols the borders between the worlds, and seems to have a particular issue with the way Maray looks.
Who is she, and why does everyone she meets look at her with either adoration or hatred? With each new discovery, Maray is left to wonder if she will ever get back home from Allinan. She only hopes that Jemin can help her uncover the truth, before the fates of two worlds are sealed…
Two Worlds of Oblivion (Two Worlds Book 2) coming in fall 2019!
