Review of Lor Mandela Destruction from Twins by L.Carroll

From Goodreads-
A selfish twin enchantress unwittingly sentences the world of Lor Mandela to its untimely death. Only one can save it—the appointed Child of Balance, Audril Borloc—But how can a small child solve a prophetic riddle that baffles even the wisest adults? And who will save Lor Mandela when, shortly after her fourth birthday, Audril disappears without a trace?

Audril Borloc must be found. When a group of spies travel to Earth looking for the little girl with black hair and bright blue eyes—traits that on Lor Mandela are exclusive to the ruling Borloc family—they find sixteen-year-old Maggie Baker. While the age difference between the girls is obvious, Maggie has the Borloc traits—evidence enough for the desperate spies.

Following an earthquake that no one feels but her, Maggie’s mundane existence is launched into a thrill ride of twists and turns as she begins bouncing back and forth between her hometown of Glenhill, Iowa and the strange and diverse lands of Lor Mandela. Amid battling a ferocious two-headed beast, being abducted by a lawless band of Shadow Dwellers, and falling head-over-heels for the captivating son of an evil warlord, Maggie soon discovers that her blasé reality could be the real fantasy, and that the world of Lor Mandela might just be hers alone to save.
Wow what a book. This is not my typical reading material but I have to say that L. Carroll had me hooked from the prologue. I loved Maggie from the beginning, she acts like your typical teenager so she always entertains with her witty comments. I would have liked to seen her more in the book because she is such a strong character. I loved never knowing for sure where Maggie was going to end up.... earth or Lor Mandela. There are so many twists that you are constantly kept on your toes. I have to give credit to the cover... *wow* so beautiful! If I were shopping for a new book to read, this is one that I would for sure grab off the shelf because I was "judging a book by it's cover"!
