Meet the Author

She was raised in southern Virginia and later made New York City her home. She's been an avid reader since childhood. Since she was in a military family, Aron had a great deal of me time. She thinks that's when the role playing started. Her brain became fertile ground for fantasizing. Fantasy is her passion, but she enjoys reading other genres as well.With a background in the performing arts, Aron was a singer, songwriter, dancer, and theatrical costumer. There was more than ample opportunity to expand her imagination.Many years of her life were dedicated to orphan relief in Eastern Europe, and animal rescue in America. She now lives in the country with my pet family.

    1. Title 10/10 Vanished  is one of those YA fantasy titles one c

    1. Title 10/10
    Vanished  is one of those YA fantasy titles one can really sink ones reading teeth into! It tells the potential reader 1 of 2 things:
    1st, this series is about young people which is sure to make it relatable to the audience towards whom it’s geared; &, 2nd, being
    that the overall title deals with characters who’re, in some way, lost the notion that in this story someone or something has vanished
    creates a sense of urgency to find out ‘What’s happened?' & 'Why?'

    2. Cover 10/ 10
    It’s a stunning cover. It has a haunting effect & when one marries the title 'Vanished' to the image of the person in the center who
    appears to be fading (look closely & you can 'see thru' the image) as they wander through a creepy forest if you're a fantasy fan
    (regardless of your age) it shouts, 'come on, you know you want to know what's going on!' 

    3. The 1st 500... 10 /10
    I was captivated by the 1st chapter of the story. I felt for Lila who found herself far from her home, stuck in a place as cold as its name,
    The White Realm. To know that she'd never seen snow & was now trapped in a place where ice was common put Lila in the 'fish out of
     water' category. And the introduction of some scary looking creatures who appeared to be a bit scared (but of what?) was intriguing. 

    4. Is the Age Recommendation 'right'? 9 /10
    This is a book designed to be read by young people but not 'children' per se. What I mean is in a day & age where some authors think
    of YA as being sexually & socially savvy, this book caters to the 10-14 year age range with characters who’re just a little bit older than
     they are. Joice's Vanished shows a growing sense of maturity in the characters as the story quickly advances. They rise to the occasion
     to help out one another because it's the right thing to do. Yes, there are whispers of love & romance in the story but it's budding &
    based on respect for one another.  

    5. Presentation & Format.  6/10
    This is 1 of the few areas where I find fault with the book because while it’s fast paced, the format that’s used makes it easy to get
    confused while reading. Why? Because the story jumps, within chapters, from characters in 1 location to characters in another location
    with only a few asterisks (***) to inform the reader of the location & character shift. Further, when a shift does occur, the story in that
    particular setting is told from the 1st person POV of the main character in that setting. I felt this created a lack of cohesiveness as the
    presentation & format goes. 

    6. Theme & Originality 10/ 10
    It’s got magic & creepy things & all that sort of stuff but it's also got an unexpected element of what happens to Lila as well as the
    events around which it happens.

    7. Description & Enhancement 10/10
    Terrific! Joice’s attention to detail is impressive. In fact  her descriptions give it a cinematic feel. 

    8. Intrigue. 9/10
    The ONLY reason I've taken one point off is because while it was a very intriguing story, there was that feeling of frustration when I
    wasn't always 100% sure who was actually talking. It detracted a tad.

    9. Mechanics 10/10
    While I have concerns with the POV issue, I must say it is extremely well written. Any 'mistakes' were so insignificant, they'd not be
    noticed on a galloping horse! .

    10. Overall Impression 10/10
    I’ve no doubt that if Vanished (& it's predecessor, The Rising) can 'get noticed' outside of Indie circles...it'll do very well!  It deserves
    a 10 for sure.

    Total score 94/100
