Book Description

When 12 year-old Mia Cornell is sent to live at the Tarpley Estate, her ninth foster home, she has no idea what she's in for. Having a kind but mysterious foster mother and three quirky foster sisters is all well and good. Discovering that her new family is a secret society—they use a portal in their garden labyrinth to travel the globe seeking lost art, artifacts, and OSOs (objects of supernatural origin)—is something else entirely.
Mia barely has time to wrap her head around the truth when the Society's latest job, tracking down Marie Antoinette's necklace, goes sideways. Mia and her new siblings—Tomi, the historian; Devon, the hacker; and Lily, the muscle—must use their wits, plus a few cool OSOs filched from the Society's vault, to stay a step ahead of a sinister enemy from their foster mother's past. But just how far back does Mrs. Tarpley's past go? And will Mia stand by her new family or cut and run when they need her the most?

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Fantasy Adventure for Girls! August 27, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After a false accusation of theft gets her booted from her eighth foster home, Twelve year-old Mia is sent to live at the Tarpley Estate. There she meets her new foster mother, the kind and mysterious Mrs. Tarpley, the widow of a famous archaeologist, and her three foster sisters, one of whom is not at all happy she's there. Mia's not quite sure what to think about her new family, especially when she realizes everyone in the household is lying to her about something big. Turns out the something big is that they're a secret society of supernatural relic hunters and they travel the globe by way of a magic labyrinth. When Mia gets sucked into their latest mission, a threat from Mrs. Tarpley's past rears its ugly head, and Mia and her new sibs have to work together to save the day

This book has it all: history, humor, mystery, magic, the supernatural, and plenty of girl power. The story is told from the alternating POVs of Mia and her three foster sisters who all have a special talent, as well as plenty of sass and snark, that they use to help solve the mystery. I loved it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Will I Buy More by Angie Kelly? Yes! June 14, 2014
By Julia N

When will the second book come out? Angie Kelly did an amazing job. Thank you, NetGalley and Patchwork/Astaea Press for this free book to review!

The plot was stuffed with action, with only a few inevitable info-dumps at the beginning. Most of the book takes place in a single day, but it doesn't feel dragged out.

I really liked Mia. While she and the other girls often appeared older than twelve, she was still a spunky and understandable character.

The ending was confusing, but then again, NetGalley labeled it sci-fi and fantasy, and most books in that genre are. If I mull over it some more it might make more sense.

The writing style was mostly great--Angie Kelly does character voice very well. While all the girls were somewhat similar, each had personal features that helped distinguish them. However, it was often wordy and I had to re-read sentences a lot.

Would I want to read other books in the series? You bet!

I was given this copy courtesy of NetGalley for an honest review.

Um, when is the second book coming out? This book had everything: action, kidnapping, adventure, ghosts, and my favorite, Tomi's chocolate addiction. I loved the diverse group of character, who brings different set of skills to the table. They were likable and I can't wait to see more of them. The plot and setting were great, I can't wait to see what other places they're going to go and what artifact they're going to find.

Mia, a twelve year old foster kid, had been bounced from foster home to foster home, takes up residence in a new home, called the Tarpley's Estate. Where she finds three girls, Devon, Tomi, and Lily, who Mrs. T fosters, who are around the same age as her or a little older.

Almost immediately Mia knew they were hiding something from her, but she didn't know what and wanted to find out of course. After a rude encounter with one of the girls Mia wants to runaway, but on the day, or should I say night, of her attempted runaway, she ends following the girls and Mrs. T's assistant out into the Labyrinth. Mia ends up in France by grabbing one of the girls arms, trying to save her.

Mia is immediately filled in about the Labyrinth Society and what they do. One of the girls explains that they're in France to search for the necklace of Marie Antoinette that has been lost in history. Of course they're villains who wants to get their hands on the lost necklace as well and will do anything to attain it. The girls have powerful items with them, along with their skills to help them along the way.

My only problem I had was with the first chapter when the girls introduced themselves, I thought it took an element of shock/surprise out on small part of the book for me. Other than that I loved it and can't wait to read more.

5 STARS

I can see a lot of places this series can go. It is a fun adventure. The characters are likeable, young, adventurous that you want to see more of them. The setting was from Ohio to France. It has a good plot and a little paranormal on the side. It is a clean book that anyone can enjoy reading and dreaming.

Mia is 12 year old in foster care. She is taken to live at Tarpley Estate to a mansion. There she finds Tome, Devon and Lily already living with Mrs. Tarpley. Mia realizes that they are hiding things from her so she decides to find out. She ends up following them to France when she grabs one of the other girls.

There they find out that others want the same thing they are after. Two henchman try to grab them but they split up. Their is lots of action and drama, there is kidnapping, rescue, fire, ghosts and lots of fun adventure as they try and trace down Marie Antoinette's necklace that has been lost to history.

There many magical items with power that the girls sneak out with them to help them accomplish there missions. The girls also use there talents to help. Their brains , physical skills and fast thinking.

I would love to read more of this series in the future. I would also like to travel like they can from Labyrinth to Labyrinth anywhere in the world fast.

I was given this book to read and asked in return to give honest review of it by Net Galley.
