BLOG TOUR and GIVEAWAY: The Three Lost Kids and Cupid's Capture by Kimberly Kinrade


Lexie is very unhappy this Valentine’s Day. She can’t get anything right, and her hearts all look horrible. In fact, everyone at school seems to be in an extra grumpy mood.

When she and her sisters consult her magic Mirror of Ice to find out what’s going on, they are transported to Heartland, the home of Cupid herself, which is under attack by a scary monster.

When Cupid is captured, the girls must navigate the Maze of Misdirection, pull themselves out of Apathy, and survive against attacking Cruel Crawlies in order to find the Chasm of Broken Hearts… and save Cupid.

But first, Lexie has to learn to love herself just as she is, otherwise Valentine’s Day will forever be filled with broken hearts. 


Kimberly Kinrade was born with ink in her veins and magic in her heart. She writes fantasy and paranormal stories for children, YA and adults and still believes in magic worlds. Check out her YA paranormal novels Forbidden Mind and Forbidden Fire and her illustrated children's fantasy chapter books Lexie World, and Bella World, all on Amazon.

She lives with her three little girls who think they're ninja princesses with super powers, her two dogs who think they're humans and her husband, also known as the sexy Russian Prince, who is the love of her life and writing partner.

     Another cute story about Lexie, Bella, and Maddie, this one taking place in the realm of Cupid.  When every one starts feeling gloomy and mean, Lexie and her sisters decide to use the magic gained on other adventures to find out what is wrong.  The end up in the realm of Cupid, but before they can find the problem, Cupid is captured by a monster and the three sisters must set out on a quest to find her. The only question is can they overcome their own fears and doubts and rescue Cupid before it is too late?  Kinrade provides another fun adventure with Lexie, Bella, and Maddie.  This book provides not only a cute read with lots of fun details like heart-shaped clouds, but also an inside look at the battle many kids fight to find their self-worth.  I appreciated that message especially when it was delivered in such a creative way. I would recommend that the series be read in order because references are made back to previous adventures.  However this is not required because there is enough back story provided for the reader to understand what is going on, I just know that I like to know what is being referred to in such flashbacks. Recommended for children, especially girls (I'm not sure many boys would read this since almost all the characters are female), who enjoy a fun fantasy with a good message.
