Worlds collide in Lindsey Klingele’s young adult novel The Marked Girl, an exciting fantasy tale turned upside down.

Elissa Sussman, author of Stray, calls The Marked Girl “a magical debut with a big heart.”

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…

The Marked Girl has humor, heart, and harrowing adventures, perfect for fantasy lovers and reluctant fantasy readers alike. The paperback includes a teaser to the sequel, The Broken World.

Lindsey Klingele ended up in Los Angeles via airplane, not portal, coming from the fantastical land of Michigan. She has since worked in the writers’ rooms of television shows such as ABC Family’s ‘The Lying Game’ and ‘Twisted.’ Lindsey is the author of The Marked Girl and its’ sequel, The Broken World.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I like it so far 3.5 stars. Not bad! It's a fairly standard story, with decently likeable characters, and it's a fairly quick read. I found the romance a bit insta-love-y, and the plot a bit predictable, but enjoyed it overall. Interested to see how this wraps up in the next book. #plumreview
