SYNOPSIS: Markus a wizard from a parallel Earth travels to our world in a bid to stop a blight that is destroying his own. Here he meets Alcina, a Wiccan Priestess, who is in a custody battle over her son, Tim, against Carl, the boy’s sire, who abandoned her when she was pregnant eight years before. Carl has the backing of a dangerous religious cult in his bid to take custody.

Can Alcina save Tim, even with the help of her bizarre, intriguing visitor? Can Markus save his world with the aid of this alien enchantress and what of the bond that grows between them? Can even love triumph when you are Worlds Apart?

REVIEW: True love can overcome all obstacles, but does that still ring true when you are literally from two different worlds? 

Markus, a wizard from a parallel Earth is in search of a answer to stop what is destroying his world. Alcina, a Wiccan Priestess, is in a fight to keep custody of her son from his evil father. Fates collide to bring Markus and Alcina together but can they stay together? 

Markus has traveled all the way from a parallel Earth in order to save his world only to meet and fall in love with Alcina, a Wiccan Priestess from another Earth. Markus helps Alcina save her son, Carl, from his father, who abandoned both Alcina and Carl while she was still pregnant with him only to be trapped on her Earth feeling guilty over not saving his people, while knowing in his heart he would still do everything all over again if given a chance. Finding a way to go back to his own parallel Earth and save his friends, Markus takes the chance not knowing if he will live or die. Will he ever make it back to his family: Alcina and Carl? 

Pearl's book shows that true love can overcome all obstacles and span time, distance, and space. World's Apart is a very well written and touching love story. I could not put this book down. I wasn't sure if this would be a book that I would enjoy, but within the first few pages I was hooked. I loved both Markus and Alcina dearly and Carl is such a special boy. This is a book that can be read over and over again and loved more each time.

World's Apart was given to me by the author in exchange for an honest review.
