"A lonely teen discovers a secret wormhole to a distant planet - and a distant boy who steals her heart - in this young-adult sci-fi romance." - Kirkus Reviews

"This coming of age sci-fi story involved jumping back and forth between two world and the many exciting adventures had on them. There was plenty of action which kept me on the edge of my seat and wanting more." - Larry Gray's Reviews

"I am completely blown away by the magic I just read. The idea of stumbling across a wormhole and finding yourself in a planet so similar to Earth is pure genius." - Barbara Gordon

"Arkana is a stunningly beautiful and magical place! Time moves 5x faster there than on Earth... The creatures in Arkana are creatively written, well described, and sometimes dangerous. The technology is slightly more advanced there. The clean energy source of the crystals could be something the Earth desperately needs. The most amazing thing is that the people on that planet know peace." - Courtney Robichaux

"It didn't take long to get into the heart of the story and find myself immersed in the world(s) Molly, a disgruntled transfer from a high school in her beloved New Jersey to Beverly Hills High, with all the concomitant anxieties she met with when her parents moved to L.A." - Dennis McCarthy


How can love mend a heart full of hate?

Small town girl, Molly Bennett, moves to Los Angeles where she becomes an outsider while attending Beverly Hills High School. It seems life cannot be any more dreadful. Then one day after school, something magical happens. On a secluded hike in the Hollywood Hills, Molly chases her disobedient mutt and only friend into a hidden cavern. She stumbles upon a strange glimmering gateway that transports her to Arkana, a planet that is the cradle of an advanced human race. There, teenagers navigate amazing flying vehicles, compete in hazardous games, and some even possess supernatural powers. 

While Molly tries to wrap her mind around this unbelievable discovery, she meets the alluring and mysterious Victor Sorren. He is a Sentinel Apprentice, whose hatred toward people from Earth seems irreversible. Yet every time Victor unpredictably saves Molly's life, his heart draws closer to hers, no matter how much he tries to fight against it.

It further complicates things that their growing friendship is strictly forbidden. Earth people are prohibited in Arkana, yet Molly continues to cross through the portal to Arkana to see Victor. Torn between their double lives, they go down a dangerous path, from where there is no return and multiple endings.

Fields of Elysium is a highly romantic and suspenseful tale filled with secrets, dangerous encounters and unexpected turns.
