CHECK OUT THE COMPLETE SERIES HERE!!




THE LOVELY AND THE LOST was a bombshell of a sequel!! Filled with everything imaginable, it made for a epic adventure that I absolutely loved exploring! Page Morgan steps her game up in this thrilling second installment, that had my heart-racing, hands-shaking, and fingers turning the pages faster then I could read them in awe and anticipation. Everything is more intense, more raw, more dangerous, and more suspenseful as ever, as the Waverly's explore their otherworldly gifts, their demon hunting talents, and face-off against the evil hunting them!!

The writing yet again was breathtaking... Truly heart-pounding and suspenseful from beginning to end!! The audiobook is DEFINITELY the way to go for this sequel, as the narrator Mary Jane Wells amply's Morgan's gifts of storytelling, and blows your audio app alive!!

The characters once again were fantastic. Every single one of them were developed and had their own distinct voice that separated them from each other. I loved them all for their own special reasons. They had such growth, yet were still learning about themselves and the world around them. And it was such an adventure watching it all unfold as they got stronger, wiser, and more prepared to battle the evil hunting them.

THE PLOT...

~ INGRID ~

In the short time since arriving in Paris, Ingrid's life has change drastically. Switching from her glittering gowns and ballroom parities, to taking up learning how to conjure lightening at will, and directing it from her finger tips. Oh, and slaying a demon or two while running from the fallen angle/demon Axia, and her plot to overtake the Angelic Order with her angel blood she stored within Ingrid's blood when she was a baby.

But Axia and her demon lackeys are not the only ones hunting Ingrid, their are others, humans who want her blood just as bad, if not more, and are determined to go to any length necessary to get it. But Ingrid's protector gargoyle Luc, would rather die then let that happen to her. And then theirs the hardest obstacle of all, the forbidden affection she feels for her protector gargoyle, and the serve punishment of death that follows if ever discovered it was acted upon. But with each passing day, Ingrid's love only grows stronger, but what hurts most of all, she's not even sure he feels the same way anymore, if ever...

~ GABBY ~

After attacked by a hellhound, Gabby is left forever scarred. Feeling self-conscious about her appearance, Gabby goes to great length to coverup her ruined face, especially from the love of her life, Nolan Quinn. Though Nolan doesn't seem to notice or even care about her scars, or what they look like. But their are others who think her scars are hideous, that they should be covered and surgically removed. But that is something Gabby is unsure of, even if she does hate those wretch marks raking down the side of her face. They are hers, and proof that she survived, that she is strong enough to become a demon hunter, that she can overcome anything short of death...

But nevertheless, scars aside, Gabby has never felt more alive since arriving in Paris and secretly taking up her calling on demon hunting. She loves it more then anything she's ever experienced, and wants to become a true member of the Alliance, a secret demon fighting organization that rids the streets of demons. But the Alliance has other plans for Gabby, plans that she is not ready to face, plans that she is determined not to fulfill...

~ GRAYSON ~

Now back home with his family in Paris, and fully exposed of what he truly is, Grayson battles his inner-demons day-in and day-out, and rivals with his thirst for the one thing he despises most, blood, and the urge to shift into what he truly is, a hellhound...

But when his father makes a surprise visit to Paris, and shuns him as he always does, demanding he stay away from "his" family, Grayson can't help but to want to give in and give up. But just when all seems to be lost, Grayson runs into something unexpected that may be worth fighting for, or should I say, someone worth fighting for...

I LOVED just about everything from this sequel. The romance, the action, the evened out pace, the paranormal aspects, the experimental side, the evil villains, ALL OF IT!! It was just the second installment I was hoping for and some!!

Overall, THE LOVELY AND THE LOST was truly breathtaking, enchanting me from the very first page, and leaving me yearning for the explosive finale that was sure to come. I really can't name anything that I found lacking, I loved just about everything in this thrilling sequel!! I would HIGHLY recommend this complete series to ANY paranormal/fantasy fan out there, I don't think you'll be disappointed!! Trust me, THE LOVELY AND THE LOST is one sequel you don't want to miss!!
