~ BOOK REVIEW ~ Misteria ~ by Cameo Renae


Title: Misteria
Author: Cameo Renae
Genre: MG/YA Fantasy
Cover Designer: Stefanie Saw
Edited by: Victoria Rae Schmitz of Crimson Tide Editorial
Publication Date: May 29th, 2018
Hosted by: Lady Amber's PR

Blurb:
Approached in the woods by a rather hideous, three-foot tall man-creature, William and Anna Archer, are given a message from their mother via a crystal ball. They are to follow the messenger through a magical portal to find her.

In this modern-day fairy tale, the twelve-year-old, telepathic twins uncover a world hidden behind an enchanted mist conjured by five sorcerers to protect all magical beings from the human world. A world that is now terrorized by a dark and destructive force sweeping across the land, threatening their very existence.

The twins embark on a perilous quest to save their mother and the grandfather they never knew existed. Fantasy has turned into reality for the Archer twins, and the safety of all magical beings now rests in their hands.


My Review:
5 out of 5 Stars
This wonderful story may technically be classified as a “middle grade”, but it will certainly appeal to all ages.  Fans of the Land of Stories series will definitely love this one, as that one focused on fairytale characters, this story focuses on a beautiful land full of all of the fairytale creatures we have come to love – from elves to fairies to giants…the list goes on, but I don’t want to spoil it, as the excitement of meeting them as they come up is all part of the fun.

Cameo Renae has always been a builder of beautiful worlds, and this is certainly no exception.  As we travel through Misteria, getting to know it through the eyes of the twins, Will and Anna, she shows us that even through danger and destruction, true beauty and strength never dies.  A perfect combination of the land and those who inhabit it create a land we all dream exists somewhere, named Misteria.

Will, Anna and their friend Henry were fun, yet tough (most of the time) kids that we watched be forced to grow up quickly as the story went on, but Renae did a wonderful job at showing that although they were facing adult problems, they were still kids at heart.

I really loved this story and all of the characters we met along the way, and I hope there are more stories to follow, since there are a lot of characters there that I’m sure have very interesting lives, and could occasionally use the help of some very special twins.
