Destruction from Twins Lor Mandela #1Re importantly she must find a way to convince the Lor Mandelans that she is not their missing Child of Balance and her family and friends in Iowa and herself for that matter that she's not going insaneAmid battling a ferocious two headed beast being captured by a lawless band of Shadow Dwellers and falling head over heels for the enchanting son of an evil warlord Maggie discovers that her blasé reality could be the real fantasy and that the fate of an entire world may actually depend on her. Lor Mandela – Destruction From Twins by L Carroll captured my interest even before I opened the book The front cover features a beautiful young woman with piercing blue eyes and a rupturing planet The back cover text describes a dying alien world a prophetic riddle and a “Child of Balance” who may or may not be a teenager from Earth Immediately I sensed I was holding an epic entertaining read in my hands I can tell you that Lor Mandela did not disappointIn Part One on Lor Mandela twin sisters position themselves to take power as the Vritesse the matriarchal leader of the Trysta race after their mother dies Soon it is discovered that Lor Mandela is dying and will be destroyed The soul of the planet appoints a “Child of Balance” named Audril Borloc who must solve the prophetic riddle known as the Advantiere to save the planet Shortly after her fourth birthday Audril disappears during an attack on Mandela castle Several Lor Mandelan spies travel to Earth in search of AudrilIn Part Two we meet our heroine Maggie Baker a bored but typical sixteen year old living in Glenhill Iowa Small town life has Maggie longing to ease the boredom even swimming nude in the local pond Little does she know that her wish will soon be granted with a grand adventure beyond her wildest imagination Maggie despite the age difference possesses an uncanny resemblance to Audril including the blue eyes and black hair which are traits exclusive to the ruling Borloc family on Lor MandelaAuthor L Carroll has created an entire universe with loveable creatures horrible monsters and mysterious magic effectively keeping readers of all ages captivated from cover to cover Carroll gradually builds the momentum over the first 300 pages Then she throws us onto a rollercoaster of twists and turns in the closing chapters as two great armies clash with a dying planet as the background Just when you’re able to catch your breath the author hits you with a whopper of an ending effectively setting up the seuelI would like to have seen Maggie appearing sooner in the story as younger readers will uickly bond with the strong yet vulnerable protagonist However there is plenty going on throughout to keep less experienced readers turning the pages Maggie’s time to shine is in the second half of the book and shine she doesThe conclusion of the Harry Potter series has left a largely unfilled gap in the fantasyyoung adult genre A gap I believe L Carroll’s Lor Mandela Trilogy will fill uite nicely I highly recommend Lor Mandela and rate it as a Must Read for fans of this genre
