In this fantasy romance the central character, Molly, has just moved to California from New Jersey and she is having trouble fitting in at her new school. She is unhappy and lonely for her friends back in the East, and one day she goes for a hike and her new life changes dramatically. She slips through a wormhole, but it takes some time for her to realize she is no longer on earth.

Molly has gone to the planet, Arkana, where she meets a group of guys that includes Weston and Victor. Weston is obviously interested in her, but it is Victor who interests her. He is so handsome, yet cold and distant, not being as friendly to her as the others. Part of his allure is the mystery of why he holds back when the others welcome her.

Once Molly realizes she is no longer on earth, she is as enchanted with the new planet as she is with Victor, and she goes there as often as she can to experience the peace and contentment the people on this earth-like planet have. But not all the people are contented. Victor harbors anger because of the death of his parents.

The book is billed as a young adult novel, but readers of all ages can enjoy this story as they read about the adventures Molly has on Arkana.

The author is currently on a blog tour and will be my guest on Wednesday. I hope you can come back to help welcome her to It's Not all Gravy. In the meantime, you can visit some of the other stops on the Fields of Elysium Blog Tour.
