I semi-like this audio CD. The story is unbelievable. It is from a teenager point of view and perspective. There are two main places to remember. There is lots of people to remember. This is Part I of Part III. Madeleine (M) is one of the main characters. M is on the World. M and her mother have run away from their former life, under mysterious circumstances, and settled in a rainy corner of Cambridge. M's father was addicted to drugs and alcohol. M ran away from her parents 17 times. On the last time, M's mother ran away with her. They were broke with no revenue. M's mother gets sick. The fairy from Cello saves M's mothers life with healing beads. Elliot (E) is the other main character. E is in the Kingdom Of Cello in the town of Bonfire. Cello has princes, princesses, kings, queen, vampires, werewolves, dragons, fairies. Colors do battle on the small towns. E is in search of his father. E's father disappeared on the night his uncle was found dead with the truck running and the doors open. E's father was with his mistress, who was the school teacher. The talk in the town of Bonfire is that Elliot's dad may have killed his brother and run away with the Physics teacher. But Elliot refuses to believe it. And he is determined to find both his dad and the truth. M thinks E is not a real place. E thinks M is in a world they had contact with 300 years ago. Cello closed the cracks between the two places in the 1600's when The World had the plague killing many people. The government of Cello want to close all the cracks between the two worlds. However, the Princess tells E that his father, his uncle and the school teacher were a royal spy undercover. The Princess tells E that all the missing people were pushed in the cracks between Cello and The World by the hostile people with color names. There is some royal family members missing too. The Princess asks E to use his World contact M to ask for help find the missing people. Part II and Part III are a continuation of the same story.
