The Earth is teeming with winged creatures who breathe the first breath of life into a newborn human child to ensure them a kind heart. These fairy-like creatures stay with children on Earth to help protect them until their eighth birthday. On that day, the Fiorins disappear as quickly as the child’s memory of them does.

5 Stars from Reader’s Favorite:
“Missing” is the second book in the Lessons From Fiori series written by Peggy M. McAloon and Anneka Rogers. Lessons From Fiori is an absolutely engrossing and enchanting read, with believable characters from a different dimension to our own. Mother Blue and the Fiorins were so easy to visualize while reading this magical tale, and it was impossible not to fall in love with them. The sickening threat of having your child kidnapped in a public area is every mother’s worst nightmare.
5-Star Review on Amazon 6/15/18:
Elle pairs with the winged soldiers from Fiori to save JJ and finds out there are others in turmoil as well. Elle was chosen to defend the children of Earth and she will urgently work to get her brother back. Missing: Lessons from Fiori is really exciting and full of adventure as well as surprises. Author, Peggy McAloon has a wonderful imagination which she uses throughout her mysterious, fantasy story. There is a message of perseverance, faith and standing strong through adversity. The audio voice actor is great and kept me enthralled throughout. Would make a great children’s movie.
Recommended to All Readers
Missing portrays every conceivable emotion in a gut-wrenching scenario that brings people together in strength while uniting unlikely allies. The concept of ‘human guides’ working with miniature guardian angels to keep our children safe is literary gold. Peggy M. McAloon and Anneka Rogers both show imagination which knows no bounds, in order to bring a story of ‘fairytale, meets reality’ to the reader. I thoroughly enjoyed the second book from the Lessons From Fiori series and plan to seek out the other titles in the series for my own library at home. I recommend this book to all readers 12 years and older who enjoy mystery, drama, and intrigue served up with a huge dollop of fantasy, magic and love.” Reviewed By Rosie Malezer for Readers’ Favorite
