    About Elise Stokes:

    Elise Stokes

    Elise Stokes lives with her husband and four children. She was an elementary school teacher before becoming a full-time mom. With a daughter in middle school and two in high school, Elise’s understanding of the challenges facing girls in that age range inspired her to create a series that will motivate girls to value individualism, courage, integrity, and intelligence.

    The stories in Cassidy Jones Adventures are fun and relatable, and a bit edgy without taking the reader uncomfortably out of bounds. Cassidy Jones and the Secret Formula, Cassidy Jones and Vulcan’s Gift, Cassidy Jones and the Seventh Attendant, and Cassidy Jones and the Luminous are the first four books in the series.

    Review by Dana Griffin:

    Before you begin reading this engaging novel, set some time aside before you turn the first page. If you don’t, you’ll be late for work or school, forget to meet friends, or wish you hadn’t stayed up so late the next day.

    Elise Stokes has an amazing ability to put the reader into the mind of a fifteen-year-old young woman who just so happens to have superpowers. The character, Cassidy Jones, with the exception of the superpowers, is the kind of daughter all parents would cherish, or teenagers wished they had as a friend. She doesn’t swear, or deliberately get in trouble. But having her extraordinary gifts and using them to rid her hometown of Seattle of villains often puts her in the crosshairs of nasty people.

    What I love about this book and the series in general, is how the ordinary life of a teenager is portrayed while Cassidy works with her genius neighbor and best friend Emery to keep Seattle safe. The interaction with the students in school who consider themselves so above Cassidy made me feel I was back in high school. Cassidy’s interaction with her family and friends evoked many smiles. The action scenes are fast paced and you’ll want to reread to savor how well written they are.

    Although classified as a young adult book, readers of that age or older will thoroughly enjoy reading Cassidy’s latest adventure. I look forward to reading the next in the series.

    Review by Steve Mathisen:

    I am going to admit right here at the top that I am a huge fan of Cassidy Jones. I have read all of the series and thoroughly enjoyed each one. Every time, it seems that the author has taken the characters to a place there is no way forward from. Each time, she has proven that she has the imagination and the skills to take them to completely new places and it all organically flows from the previous book.

    In this book, there are strange other worldly threats that are so subtle and insidious at the beginning that you really don’t seem them coming until they are practically right on top of you. And, Cassidy is the only one that can get you out. Cassidy seems to struggle with herself a lot in this adventure, but what fifteen year old doesn’t?

    If you are looking for betrayal, danger, intrigue and heroes to save the day, you have come to the right place. Cassidy Jones and the Luminous has it in spades. This is top flight entertainment that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
