Callan Blair's dark secret keeps her bouncing around from one foster home to another. When her newest foster parents send her to a rich boarding school, Callan finds things she didn't think possible: a friend, a link to her past, and a doorway to another world. She's dragged into this strange and beautiful medieval world. Though she makes friends and might find some answers about her parents, she knows she can never stay. The darkness in her would never make it safe. But what's more frightening: what's inside of her or the war erupting around her?

A marvelous tale that takes us from our modern world into a wonderful fantasy realm, one forgotten by the people of Earth. The world building is incredible. There's a rich history filled with unusual customs and folklore, and none of it is dumped on the reader. It's perfectly spread out through the book. This is the first book in a series, and I cannot wait to learn more about the land and its peoples.

What makes this book stand out from other YA fantasy tales is the cast of characters. Callan is a strong female protagonist. She has my sympathy as well as my admiration. And the mystery behind her dark secret is intriguing. Kaela is another great female character. She's a soldier with a powerful sense of duty and loyalty. Then there are all the charming males: Gawain, Quin, Darrion, and Ward. Not James. He wasn't charming at all!

THE VANISHED KNIGHT is a fantastic beginning to Misha Gerrick's series. I can't wait until the next one is released!

There were so many things I loved about this book, but mostly that guy listed in my title. *happy sigh* Goodness, who doesn't want a Gawain-to-go?

It took me a little bit to get into this book, but I was instantly draw to and concerned about Callan. I wanted to settle down in her head for ride. (Her inner dialog...AWESOME.)

The dual world aspect was super cool and when we reached the other side, the story really found its pace for me. I was screaming for Callan to unleash her inner evil—just a little bit—in what felt like a very chauvinistic society, and teach those demanding boys a lesson. But then, that probably would have been bad. Since it was evil.

I'm anxious to learn the rest of Callan's story and can't wait for the sequel.

Callan is a wonderful rare character. She's a foster child in England. But she might be from a fantasy world. The book sits on the edge between Portal and Urban Fantasy. The relatable story of this "Anne-like-luck" girl getting a new family that ships her to a premier private school soon mixes with a portal fantasy leading to another world. There's a heavy cast to keep track of, but it gets easier as it goes on.

The book ends without ending. You'll need to get the second one.

A few minor spots contain either an error missed by the editor, a UK versus US translation difference, or a formatting flaw caused in publication. The work is exemplary writing otherwise.

Any book that can combine the use of the names Gawain and Lorcan, from a fantasy realm yet, impresses me.
This is an honest review, written after reading the free copy I was given.

Callan is a great heroine. She’s complex, tough, funny, tender, and has secrets even she doesn’t understand. And when she got to Tardith, I couldn’t put the book down. I loved her interactions with Gawain, Darrion, James, etc. The world building was impressive, and I can’t wait to read more about the kingdoms of Tardith, the entity, and Callan’s destiny.

With her sad, resigned cynicism and her muted self-consciousness, Callan Blair makes for an immediately likable protagonist who is easy to root for in this interesting, mysterious portal-fantasy novel, The Vanished Knight by M. Gerrick (pen name of Misha Gericke).

Gericke (or Gerrick, if you prefer) does an excellent job with characterization. Some characters start off at the beginning of the book acting a bit like archetypes--such as James, Callen's foster brother who is both attractive and arrogant in his upper-class snobbery, and Phipps, the castle guard who threatens expulsion to all who disobey even the smallest of rules. But, as it turns out, these archetypes are actually only the outer layers to the characters, which peel away as the adventure progresses and they reveal more of their true selves.

Callan's character is very well-developed, as she has both flaws and positive traits, both fears and desires. Her backstory and her life outside the fantasy realm are realistic, making the transition through the portal more accessible and believable.

Descriptions of action are dynamic and engaging, tracing the flowing moves of sword fights. The pacing of this novel is excellent and remains exciting page after page. The mystery behind who Callan's real parents are, where the Black Knight disappeared to, and who will be chosen as the next king keep the suspense going. I am eagerly anticipating the sequel!

Format: Paperback
Author: M. Gerrick
Title: The Vanished Knight
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Fiction, Science Fiction

Synopsis: The entity living inside Callan’s soul orphaned her at age eleven. By the time she’s sixteen, it’s ensured her being shunted from one foster family to another. Her thirteenth foster assignment should be routine. Except...it's not. A psycho in medieval armor kidnaps her and she ends up in a magical world. There, she accidentally discovers a secret her parents had kept until the day they died. Both actually came from this magical world, but left before Callan was born. To cover their tracks, they’d lied about everything. Even who they really were. Driven to find out where she comes from, Callan’s trapped in a race for life and death. Walking away isn’t an option, but if she stays too long, the entity will find its next victim. In this world where secrets are sacrosanct and grudges are remembered, finding the truth will be near impossible. Especially when Callan has her own homicidal little secret to deal with. One with a taste for destroying her life.

Review: This was an excellent read that I just got lost in almost straight away. I just couldn't stop reading and finished this within the day that I started to read this book. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves to read a book that spans across many genres. People who love science fiction/fantasy/young adult books will love to read this book.
