When Audril, the heiress to the Lor Mandelan throne, sneaks away to Earth to save one of her dearest friends, she finds that a power hungry tyrant from her own world has begun systematically obliterating towns and cities to get her to turn herself over to him. On Earth, she meets a wildly eccentric old lady named Teedee Venilworth whose imaginary butler/fiance supposedly holds the key to her success. But how can someone help if he doesn't exist? Could it be that creatures who dwell in shadow are not exclusive to Lor Mandela? Book number two in the Lor Mandela Series, FOUR HUNDRED DAYS, is an action-packed whirlwind of intrigue and fantasy. Join the extraordinary characters from the first book, (both the good and the evil), as they traverse the haunted corridors of Alcatraz Penitentiary, travel via portal to an ancient castle on the cliff shores of Ireland, and meet a foreboding race of mystic warriors known as the Solom. Soar on the back of a large horse-like creature to the Northern High Forests and discover that on the picturesque world of Lor Mandela, your friends can become foes, your enemies your allies, and just because someone dies, it doesn't always mean that they're dead.

Four Hundred Days Reviews
This book is so much fun! The mixture of contemporary and fantasy with a dash of sci-fi thrown in is completely original and entertaining. The characters are complicated and interesting and the world is fascinating.Audril is a very likable heroine. Raised on Drolana (aka, Earth) she has attitude and a bit of a wild side (which worries her father to no end). She does what she believes to be right or necessary, even when it gets her into trouble. She makes mistakes and is occasionally a little too independent for her own good, which gets her into even more trouble but also makes her more fun!Dallin Doone, the handsome love interest, is in deep trouble through almost the entire book. Audril's father is determined to keep them apart, the enemy wants Audril for himself, and Dallin may have some competition for her affections from an unexpected source. Poor Dallin certainly has his work cut out for him, but he has won me to his side with his sweetness.Ryannon makes a great villain because he is so convincing. He can talk almost anybody into trusting him before he turns on them. I am not sure what to think of Lortu. He is so shifty and strange, it is impossible to tell what side he will choose. I believe he truly cares for Audril, but will that be enough?The minor characters are wonderful. I love Tabbit and Jonathan and Kahlie and Teedee...well, I loved them all, pretty much. Especially Teedee. She is so marvelously eccentric and there is far more to her than meets the eye.Is it strange that my favorite parts in the book were the most awful for the characters? L. Carroll captures the emotional anguish of certain events perfectly, so much so that at one point (I can't tell you which, it would give too much away) I was mentally yelling at the book in protest. Ok, maybe two points. And the ending! The less said the better when it comes to that ending, I must read book 3.I highly recommend this series to lovers of fantasy, great characters and world-building. This review is part of the 400 Hours to 400 Days Blog Party. I hope that you will come along for fun posts, contest and more!http://liedermadchen.blogspot.com/201...
Four Hundred Days is action packed, entertaining and so much fun to read!The story picks up soon after Lor Mandela: Destruction From Twins left off. Audril continues to get into trouble and not listen to her dad. When she receives another riddle she does a crazy thing with her powers and goes back to Drolana (earth) to help save her world. If that isn't enough, she has a love interest with Dallin and an enemy Ryannon who claims to love her. I enjoy Audril's take charge attitude. Her interaction with the other characters is so fun to read. I love the squakis especially Tibbit, she is so cute and funny. Ryannon, I have a love/hate relationship with his character. He is a great villain though. Teedee was a really strange character that I found to be even weirder as the story went on. I was quite shocked when I found out who she truly is. The entire book was action packed, full of suspense with a little romance thrown in. We are left with a cliffhanger ending that left me wondering. I like how the author mixes the two worlds Drolana and Lor Mandela together. The portals really came to life in this one too. You'll have to read the book to find out what I mean by this. The author brought so much to this book that I didn't want to put it down. A must read for all fantasy fans! I'm now waiting for book three. This e-book was provided to me for review. This did not affect my review in any way.
I had the same problems with this second book as with the first book. The characters didn’t develop any further with the series as I had hoped they would. In fact, there didn’t seem to be any time devoted to character development whatsoever.I had even more problems with the plot this time around though. The villain’s actions seemed even more implausible then possible. It was frustrating to say the least and I was forced to put down the book for forced time outs several times.Still, I read on because there were other plot events that were compelling enough to keep me going. I had to find out what happened next. This is despite the fact that the more I read the more I felt like the events were starting to feel contrived and even cliched.The book did end in a cliffhanger but I’m forced to wonder if I’ll even continue to read this series. I usually don’t give up on these things, but my enjoyment was so little that the likelihood of my going on with this series is in serious doubt.... see my review of Destruction From Twins the first book ...
L Carroll has once again excelled with the storyline in the Lor Mandela sequel. I started reading this book with high expectation, and I was definitely taken by surprise multiple times.We finish “Destruction From Twins” (book 1 in the Lor Mandela Series) thinking the Riddle of Lor Mandela’s survival has been solved, but we were left hanging when Ryanonne escapes and part of “Earth” is destroyed. Well, we were so wrong. Only more questions developed than answers. (brilliant)L Carroll’s taken her characters and scenery to a different level in this book. She’s created a fifth Dimension — the Light Dimension– and gave life to her portals.I have noticed in this series, L Carroll’s reoccurring theme of women empowerment. Not only are the Lor Mandela planet Leaders women, L Carroll also decided that the President of the United States on Earth is a women too.L Carroll has tortured us once with the ending of Destruction from twins but she has taken it to another level with the cliff hanger ending in this book. My skin is itching for more and I cannot wait to read what she comes up with next.
Four Hundred Days takes place shortly after where Destruction from Twins left off. It is an action-packed adventure with many twists and turns, and overall a very engaging read. L. Carroll further develops the relationships between couples in this book, and I find myself being won over by couples I did not have any strong attachment to in the first book.Even though Four Hundred Days was full of suspense, I wish we could have seen more of Jonathon. He is my favorite character because he always makes me laugh and I love his personality. L. Carroll introduces us to several other characters in this novel, and I pleased to say that they are just as well-developed as the characters we know and love from Destruction form Twins. Overall, the plot and characters of this book are great and I recommend it for high fantasy fans. The absolutely shocking ending will have readers eagerly awaiting the next book in the series.
I liked the characters. They were funny, they surprized me, and most of all, they were just likeable.And the bad guys were unlikeable, and I really wanted them to go cower in a dark pit and die, they just were evil!!! I really disliked them! Grrr...I loved the plot, and how somethings things didn't go exactly the way that they planned it, things mostly ended up the way that they wanted them to.I loved how the world was believeable, and able to be picked up having not read the first book thought there were a few things I was confused about having not read the first book, but oh, well.All in all, a good book, and you guys should check it out!
planning on re-reading this..
Loved it. total cliffhanger....
