Elora of Stone Legend of Rhyme Series Vol. 1 Book 1 by Jaime Lee Mann

Ariana and her family were happy together and life was good.  When her twin, Asher, disappears into the woods and is never found again, the good life is gone too.  Sorrow invades the household...

Blue Moon Publishers and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published tomorrow, so check with your local bookstore for a copy.

Twins are cursed in this kingdom.  Every time they are born, one of them is spirited away in the night.  No matter how parents try to protect them, they disappear.  Since Asher was four, her parents had hoped they were safe.  No such thing.

As Ariana grows, she picks up on the legend of Elora of Stone.  She's taught that Elora is good and Larque is bad.  She also believes her brother is still alive.

This was an interesting fantasy read.  You learn what happened to all those children, that the legend as it's told might not be true and that Ariana and Asher have special gifts.  It's fast paced, entertaining and I found myself worrying about the two main characters.  This is the first book in a new series and does a nice job of enticing your interest in other issues than Asher's disappearance.  There will be more to tell in the next book.
