This story line is WAY FUN!
Ian was sent to earth as a baby....
And he has basically spent his entire time here as a NOBODY.
Then when he is about to turn 16-years-old he discovers that he was sent here to SAVE THE GALAXY.
There is only one catch...
He has to find the princess who was also sent here, fall in love, and marry her...and in two months time.
"Fall in love? As if marrying me off to a total stranger wasn't bad enough?" I grumbled.
If marriage were all it took, then this little excursion to Earth would have never happened. Our planets need to heal, and healing doesn't come through a politically slapped-together union. It need the power of an ancient magic that can only be unlocked by the bond of two completely different kinds of magic. How is that done? Through love, kid. Real, tangible love," Corbin said, and the more he repeated it, the more panicked I got.
"How do you expect me to do that? I don't even know the girl!"
"Then we find her," Corbin said, as if it were as simple as that.
"We...find her?" I said, half dazed. "Billions of people on Earth and we're just going to walk out there and 'find' her? And in five months, no less."
"Yeah. You said I had until my sixteenth birthday. That's not until March.
"By whose account? Your birthday is December 20. You were sent to Earth in March at three months old. So, we're talking two months to track this girl down. How hard could it be?"
How hard? The air left my already-struggling lungs and I bent and gripped my knees to catch my breath. My brain went blank. How hard could it be? Hard! I couldn't get my own foster parents to acknowledge I existed, let alone a girl! And then do it in two month?
It didn't take Ian very long to find the princess for in the very next scene the "hottest girl in school, Arianna," walks in...
Yes, you guessed it...Ian just found out that she is the princess...
Only she doesn't remember that she and Ian "are exiles from another planet—or that they’re betrothed."
Go with Ian as he tries to make himself known to Arianna and win her over.
Socially awkward moments, school classes, cool magic and great twists and turns turns take you on an adventure the whole family could love!
It is a GREAT story...However, there is a some mild swearing in the book- I am disappointed in that fact-
And I am curious as to why SO MANY authors are now including it in their books and that publishers who used to edit it out are allowing it--
