Waiting on Wednesday: The Marked Girl by Lindsey Kingele

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we're eagerly awaiting.  My choice this week is a book by an author that is new to me.  And it is the beginning of a new series, I think.  It sounds like a retelling of a fairy tale, and that is a favorite of mine!  So I'm excited to read it.  Here is the blurb from Goodreads:

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away (Los Angeles)…

When Cedric, crowned prince of Caelum, and his fellow royal friends (including his betrothed, Kat) find themselves stranded in modern-day L.A. via a magical portal and an evil traitor named Malquin, all they want to do is get home to Caelum—soon. Then they meet Liv, a filmmaker foster girl who just wants to get out of the system and on with her life. As she and Cedric bond, they’ll discover that she’s more connected to his world than they ever could’ve imagined…and that finding home is no easy task…

Worlds collide in The Marked Girl, an exciting fantasy tale turned upside down.  

Sounds like it could be a fun one!  What do you think?  What book are you eagerly anticipating this week?
