was supposed to be a small escape. A few hours driving before turning
around and heading home. But once you arrive in Lost...well, it's a
place you really can't leave. Not until you're Found. Only the Missing
Man can send you home. And he took one look at Lauren Chase and
So Lauren is now trapped in the town where all lost
things go-luggage, keys, dreams, lives-where nothing is permanent,
where the locals go feral and where the only people who don't want to
kill her are a handsome wild man called the Finder and a knife-wielding
six-year-old girl. The only road out of town is engulfed by an
impassable dust storm, and escape is impossible....
Until Lauren decides nothing-and no one-is going to keep her here anymore.
The plot of The Lost was really original, and I liked the idea of it quite a bit. There were parts that I really enjoyed, but the middle seemed to really drag for me. I liked the characters for the most part, but felt like Peter was almost a little too quirky, and we really knew nothing about him besides that.
The ending was good, and made me want to read more, so I may read the next book in the series when it comes out.
I received an e-copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
