(MY THOUGHTS)       3  HEARTS!!!
Between Worlds: Nekkel Ace is one those books I have mixed feeling about. Yianna Yiannacou no doubt has a unique storyline going on here with this distant planet, Caledonia, where Sophia lives. The characters were well developed and interesting enough, but I had a problem with the main character. I just couldn’t connect all the way with Sophia. The other problem I had was the author tells me the story instead of showing me. I know we all have our own preferences, but mine is to be shown. If the author would have done that for me and left out some things that I just couldn't see the point of having in the story, this would have been a fantastic book for me.

Sophia lives on a planet called Caledonia, but it’s her dream to go to Earth. When her father ends up very sick, she believes there has to be a way to heal him. Sophia talks to a family doctor friend and he tells her of Nekkel Ace, which heals anything, but is only found on Earth. This leads Sophia to find the portal to Earth that her father has forbidden her to ever use. Sophia is determined to save her father, so off to Earth she goes. But when she gets there, she meets Joshua, who she falls in love with. He sidetracks her from her purpose. And that was to find the Nekkel Ace for her father.

Between Worlds has a great storyline, but there is so many things I think the author should have left out that just confuse the story. I think younger YA will probably enjoy this book, but with older teens and adults would see some inconsistencies. I recommend this as a good read. I also love the beautiful cover.
