“The book is ever tinged with enough optimism that even the darkest moment has a light to it. This (Missing) is in no small part due to the wonderful young lead in Elle, who shows a lovely brightness at all times. It’s a wonderful tale that understands its reader base and as a fantasy fan with an interest in all things magical, I find myself wanting to see more of this series in the future.” ~Self-Publishing Review, 4 1/2 Stars
