What’s that light? On a cold, dark night, Michael saw a light in the sky. At first, he thought it was a shooting star, what he didn’t know was that it was really a princess from another world. Unexpected occurrences left Michael with no memory of the mysterious princess…and in a completely different world, where color didn’t matter and people flew on air boards…Raluza. King Lavier, King of Raluza, separated his kingdom into four quarters, separating his people by class. By now—five years after he met the princess—Michael was part of an organization of skilled fighters whose objective was to overrun the palace and restore Raluza back to the way it was. His objective: give his family a new home. The organization’s order: kill the Princess.

What a fun book- it completely surprised me! This story somewhat reminded me of The Princess Bride meets Back To The Future! Absolutely original, with tons of action, and a little flair of romance, this was an amazing read! The dialogue was great, the descriptions were amazing and the storyline was one-of-a-kind. Somehow, the author manages to pull off involving you in three different times/worlds at the same time while still keeping it utterly interesting. At he beginning, it starts to play out as a middle grade reader, but only until the third chapter. Then, it spins off into more mature themes for YA that kept me completely captivated until the end! I really, truly enjoyed this book and I'm on the lookout for a sequel soon!
