The city they left behind is facing its own problems back in Los Angeles the sky is orange gravity isn’t working right and earthuakes shake the ground every few hours Opening the portals has had devastating effects and Liv’s best friend Shannon and Cedric? 35 stars Hmmm didn’t like it as much as the first but still good I think it was a little scattered maybe? I’m not sure how to describe it The ending was cheesy and not realistic but still made sense based on the bookseries itself I’m intrigued by this whole portal fantasy subgenre so if anyone has recs hit me up

The Broken World Marked Girl #2?s frenemy Merek are the only ones who know what’s going on – and that tracking down the murderous Knights of Valere might be the way to fix everythingIt's a race against time as the crew must find a way to reunite and combine their uests to save both worlds Review originally posted on My Fangirl ChroniclesReal Rating 35Even though I had a lukewarm opinion on the first book The Marked Girl I was still looking forward to reading the seuel The Broken World I guess one of the main reasons why is because it's an urban fantasy set in the city I live in so it's really cool reading about all these places that I recognize and can picture in my mind perfectly I loved how Lindsey described LA and how magic transformed it into a post apocalyptic ghost town with a strange and foreboding sky unusually constant earthuakes stifling heatwaves and weird fluctuations in gravity Places like The Grove were mentioned and I couldn't help but think Oh that's so cool because I've been there so many times then imagine it being completely empty and ruined was weirdly amusing and very intriguingThe Broken World pretty much stayed true to the feel of the first book in terms of vibe and the writing style Even though it had been a while since I first read the first book it wasn't too difficult getting back into this world but I did have trouble remembering some of the revelations and rules of it The raised stakes and constant roadblocks Liv and her friends faced motivated me to keep reading and had me constantly wondering what their next move would be Every time they thought of a possible solution they would try to pursue it only to realize that they were too late or always one step behind their enemy It almost got me a little frustrated to be honest Haha There was also a crazy intense car chase that had me at the edge of my seat That the climax that followed and the moped chase were my favorite action seuencesI am happy to say that my opinion of Cedric has now changed since the previous book He goes through so much character development in this book and matures a lot I really liked how instead of constantly trying to be like his father after going through so many ordeals Cedric realizes that he is different from him and instead tries to be a better version of himself; someone he can be proud of becoming Liv also impressed me with how much mature she's become especially when she takes responsibility for the events happening in LA and chooses to fight for the city she calls home at the expense of her developing relationship and feelings for Cedric Also I'm going to be honest and say I was totally into the minor drama between Liv Cedric and RafeThe side characters were stronger and a little memorable this time around particularly Merek and Shannon Liv's siblings took of a backseat in this book to make room for Joe and to introduce Rafe Merek's older brother and I didn't mind so much because they were all charming and endearing in their own rights Sad to say though I was still disappointed with Kat's character Between Cedric Merek and Kat she had the least amount of character development and became the character I cared about the least out of the main cast If it weren't for her fighting skills Kat almost felt like her only purpose was to stay in the background and be the barrier that prevents Cedric and Liv from being together The only time where I felt we were finally seeing character development with her was at the very endOne of the main things I was looking forward to the most was learning about the world of Caelum because I'm absolutely fascinated with medieval worlds I'm a huge fan of The Lord of the Rings and medieval fantasy role play games like Dragon Age Origins so I guess I was hoping for Caelum to feel similar to those Unfortunately while it was very much medieval unpaved dirt roads; no electricity; no technology; etc it didn't feel as magical as I was expecting Sure we got to learn about Caelum and its origins which was pretty interesting but there were no elaborate descriptions of an amazing world stuck in time The only impression Caelum left on me was that it's a typical medieval world except for unusually large scenery grass rocks mountains and whatnot I honestly felt underwhelmed with Caelum and felt like most of the magic was actually back in Los Angeles since that's where all the strange and fantastical things were happeningAs exciting as the scenes leading up to the climax were the way things ultimately ended left me feeling mostly disappointed Everything fell into place too easily and there were no real casualties worth caring about Although I'm a huge fan of happy endings considering how high the stakes were I found the ending to be a bit too cheesy juvenile and unrealistic This was when I realized that this story is probably better suited for the younger YA crowd borderline middle grade Overall I'm glad I gave this duology a chance because despite its shortcomings in the end I was still entertained and enjoyed certain aspects of it like the chase scenes and world building I would definitely recommend this to the younger YA crowd if you enjoy reading urban fantasies or are interested in diving into the genre
