Review Day: The Missing

It's time for the first review of the new year on Novel d'Tales!!

This YA novel was written by a married writing duo who love to write. Their outstanding writing style speaks volumes in this YA novel about a haunted mansion with a twisted history.

Drum roll please!!

My rating: 5 out of 5 stars
Ethan is the youngest child with twin siblings and two very busy parents.  He struggles to get attention and is constantly bullied by his siblings.  When his aunt and uncle die in a tragic car accident, his parents take in his cousin Kelsey and move to an old mansion.  The mansion has a very haunted past that soon presents itself in the form of Lucas.  Lucas went missing and died at the age of ten when he couldn't help free the Children who haunt the mansion.  Lucas needs Ethan's help to free the souls of the mansion or he will be doomed to haunt the mansion.  With the help of Kelsey, Ethan sets out to free the Children.  Will he succeed or will he be killed just like Lucas?

The Missing is not just for teens and pre-teens.  A mystery novel about a haunted house and family ties, this novel is worth more than just the $.99 it is sold for.  This novel will keep your interest throughout the entire novel, which most YA mysteries aren't able to do for avid readers.

I was nervous for the characters and kept on edge and begging to know what the true story of the mansion is.  This novel is full of twists and turns that are unexpected but marvelous.  The true story of the mansion is one that is so twisted and demented that I read it twice just to make sure I had it right.

Follow this writing team on: Twitter  Blogger and Goodreads.

They periodically give away copies of their novels on their blog and Goodreads.

I will definitely be reading this novel again, and have already recommended it to numerous people. If you like mystery novels that are scary and chocked full of twists, but still lets you sleep at night, pick up this novel for only $.99 on Amazon or Goodreads.  Happy Review Day!!!!
