Summary from Goodreads:
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.

My Review:
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.
