Dear Page Morgan...

Between sitting on the edge of my seat as the Waverly siblings constantly threw themselves head-first into danger, and sniffling over the star-crossed beautiful disaster that is Ingrid & Luc's relationship, I was wholly engrossed in this thrilling sequel.

And that ending...oh that ending!

This ending brings new meaning to the word 'torture'. The author leads you along the 'home path' and you're thinking all is well in the world...until the ground opens up beneath you and yo...more

An outstanding sequel, and dare I say better than the first book. Morgan does a fantastic job of refreshing our memories before delving into the story, which is something every reader appreciates. I loved encountering the various demons, and romance sizzles between characters at every turn. If you love Cassandra Clare's storytelling, you'll love Page Morgan's THE BEAUTIFUL AND THE CURSED series. This book is dark, passionate, thrilling, and it's set in historic Paris. In other words, it's perfec...more

That was freaking awesome!!!!!!! I need book 3 NOW!
This book killed me! I was still in love from the first book and this one made me fall even harder. Every character has something amazing about them and that makes then unique and it all shines through.

Ingrid is in love with Luc. Amazing gargoyle, protector, independent , fierce, loyal Luc. But he starts to pull away. Ingrid knows why, but she can't stand being hurt and rejected. Then there is Vander bookworm, loyal, human also in love with Ingrid. He can love openly but doesn't mean he is the...more

BOOK REVIEW by Michelle 18th May 2014:



This series keeps on rocking my kazbah.

Yeah. I really dig this series.

The cast of characters each have something to say and I am just falling for them all. It’s one of those series of books where all the characters both main and sub characters will have you wanting to switch pov’s to read more about where they are going in the story line, often.

I am admittedly, Team Luc and Team Nolan for the girls, but it’s so hard not to...more

WTF When did this cover happen?! I didn't know it was released! I like it though!

I was so excited about this after reading the first one. Just knowing that Luc and Ingrid's story was going to continue was enough to get me excited. Then while reading the book I was reminded of this wonderful world that Page Morgan has prepared.
You all know how much I loved the world that The Beautiful and the Cursed was set in. And because this one was set in the same world I obviously loved it...more

I read The Beautiful and the Cursed last year, and while I did enjoy it, it just wasn’t my favorite book. But The Lovely and the Lost? Oh my freaking God, I’m just in love with the series now. Or Luc. Or both. Let’s go with both so that no one claims I’m just reading because of Luc (Okay, fine, a lot of my love for this series has to do with him. But not only him. I promise.)Well, since I’m on Luc, let’s talk romance.
Obviously, I’m a bit obsessed...more
It feels so good to give a well-deserved 5 stars to this exceptional sequel. Page Morgan has proven herself, once again, in this action laced follow up. There isn't much to say, except, if you haven't read this series yet -- GO READ IT. Now. It's my favorite series, and gothic young adult is my new favorite genre.

It has just enough action, emotion, love, lust, hot guys, demons, and villains to keep you intrigued and flustered at the same time. My only critique is: that ending? Seriously? Why do...more

Review courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales

Quick & Dirty: Full of heart pounding action, epic romance, and one of the best cast of characters I have ever met. It’s just one of those stories you can’t get enough of and when you are finished you are left wanting so much more. This is one of my all time favorite series ever!!!

Opening Sentence: The quiet ached.

The Review:

All the Waverly’s survived their recent run in with the evil fallen angel Axia. But just because they are no longer in immediate dang...more
Bruna Bellini
Ohh another great book! Great sequel!
I love stories of demons, gargoyles and angels settled in ghotic era!
Once again, in this book, we have more mystery!
Everything is very dark, more creepy characters and new allies.
Luc, is such a loyal, bad-ass and hot as ever! Nothing can't stop him!
Ingrid and Gabby are still brave, even dealing with more and more oddities. I really like that they aren't like those annoying females characters all full of themselves, that wants to do everything and only by the...more

An ARC of this title was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

This review can also be found at The Starry-Eyed Revue.

Wow, what a mess! Not the book itself, just the way it ended. I'm still reeling from the adrenaline rush. I'm always a little wary of sequels because of the dreaded second book syndrome, where the author spends more time on world-building than plot and character interactions, but The Lovely and the Lostsuffers from none of that. In fact, I'd wager that I enjo...more
I received a copy of this from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. No compensation was given, offered, or taken to alter this review.

What can I say? Expectations were high after I finished The Beautiful and the Cursed. I'm insanely happy to say that they were all met and surpassed (not that there was any doubt; I mean, this is Page Morgan's work we're talking about here).

The rich historical setting was just as immersive as it was the first time around. Morgan has a way...more
If you are looking for a fantastic series with a great first book and an even more amazing sequel that doesn't suffer from middle book syndrome, you NEED to get your hands in The Dispossesed series! (Thank you again, Alyssa, for making sure I read them!).

The Lovely And The Lost start right after the events that take place in the first book, so you can expect some spoilers for book 1 in this review. Otherwise, I will try to keep my review as spoiler free as possible.

After their battle with Axia,...more
I received this ARC while attending the Less than Three Conference in October 2013, I was in no way compensated for this review.

When I saw Page Morgan's The Lovely and the Lost at the Less than Three Conference, for authors against bullying, I was quite happy! And I must say that Page really does pick the story up quite well, more than I expected. For in the first book, there was a lot of discovery going on for the Waverly siblings. Where those discoveries would take them was anyone's guess. But...more
Es un poco mejor que el primero, sobre todo porque las cosas que pasaban no me parecieron tan copia de otras historias, pero en sí no avanza mucho la trama que se planteó en el primer libro sino que se presenta un nuevo "enemigo". Me pareció un poco excesivo que cada personaje que aparece tenga una historia romántica, me hace pensar en series teen como Vampire Diaries donde hasta el ultimo extra tiene que tener un romance. Seguramente lea el siguiente sólo porque ahora quiero saber cómo termina...more
Saruuh Kelsey
Ah!!!!!!!! That ending!!! Nope. *quits life*

I wasn't sure if this book was going to live up to The Beautiful and The Cursed but whoa were my doubts proven wrong/ The drama, the thrills, the danger, the romance, everything is back in full force in this book. There are more demons, more gargoyles, and more of my favourite badass ladies.

Ingrid and Luc's romance becomes even more impossible and heartbreaking, Gabby and Nolan aren't allowed to be happy either (curse you, Morgan!) and Grayson and Che...more
Amber Curtis
Very often the second book in a trilogy acts as a story arc between the opening book and the ending book. This isn’t to say they aren’t good reads but they aren’t always as compelling as the opening and the ending. This is definitely NOT the case with The Lovely and the Lost! This book is easily as fantastic as or maybe even better than the first book! The action is fast paced, the characters are compelling and the storyline is rich and intriguing. Of course you would want to read the first book...more
Kathy Russo
Sequel to The Beautiful and the Cursed, Page Morgan’s The Lovely and the Lost finds the Waverly sisters in deadly peril and able to rely on no one. Morgan uses her narrators and their diverse outlooks exceedingly well; running diverse threads corresponding to each other, continuously keeping the bigger picture, the action, and the mystery advancing at a swift pace.

I found that Ingrid had quite a bit to deal with, but I adored that her relatives were able to have a far larger part than in the fi...more
This was a great sequel, and I daresay possibly even better than the first. The setting is great, being dark and magical in Paris, 1900. This book has plenty of romance, intrigue, and action, too. I love all the characters (good not bad) and their varying personalities and the fact that you get to see each of their point of views every once in a while. I always liked Marcus, but in this book I really start to root for him, and I wish he would have a love interest in the next book. The characters...more
The Lovely and the Lost is the sequel to The Beautiful and the Cursed (Review here) which I LOVED. This trilogy caught me by surprise. I started it with no expectations and came out raving and recommending it to anyone who would listen. The Lovely and the Lost did NOT suffer form second book syndrome.. it was even better than its predecessor, if that was at all possible. The plot in the book picked up immediately. We get some background info on the happenings that occurred in the first book then...more

Annoyingly, I couldn’t get Andye (Reading Teen) to engulf herself in the first book in this series, The Beautiful and The Cursed, although I thought it was surprisingly amazing. Luckily though, Andye grabbed me a copy of The Lovely and The Lost because either she must like me a lot, or she really wants to make you guys happy with a review because she knew I wouldn’t resist reading it and writing about it.

Of course, I don’t regret this at all as The Lovely and The Lost was unsurprisingly satisfyi...more
Not sure when the cover came up, but it's just as gorgeous as the first book. I really cant wait to read it.
nancy (The Ravenous Reader)
The second novel in this series is stronger and better than its predecessor. Full review to come later.
"He had shaken free of a thirty-year hibernation just over four months before, and almost immediately he’d been challenged with humans who were pure disasters: in league with the Alliance, completely aware of the Underneath, two of them with demon dust and one with an appetite for demon hunting.… Luc did need help. And he should have been relieved to have it”
Poor Luc. The book was action packed, all the siblings with their own set of problems. I usually don't like multiple perspectives but the...more
Leah (Jane Speare)
You know, I think this is even better than the first book!
Once again, I cannot get enough of the Dispossessed series! How am I ever going to survive until the spring of 2015 for the sequel?!

The Lovely and the Lost by Page Morgan was as quickly as thrilling of a read as its prequel, the Beautiful in the Cursed. In this novel, Ingrid moves closer to learning how to control her powers, Grayson still struggles with his Hellhound blood, and Gabby faces rejection from the Alliance and is determined to prove her worth. All in all the three determined siblings...more
Wow! I liked this way more than the previous one! I dunno. Maybe I was just in a really crappy mood when I read the first one, but yeah. This one was pretty good =)

There were several conflicts. My favourite was the arrival of Gabby and Ingrid's over-bearing old fashioned father. I love how everyone was so scared of him and how arrogant he was. I wish we had seen more of their home life and that dynamic.

Then there was Nolan's father and the Alliance. The mystery of what was wrong with him and whe...more
I may continue with the series to find out if the things I didn't like about the plot and characters resolves itself or not, but I was disappointed with this installment. The characters are stuck in a very repetitive cycle, especially in how they interact with each other that it's become predictable. The plot itself felt like it was moving very slowly and Axia's threat was nebulous and not that pressing. I also didn't like the additional factions that the author included to try to spice up Allia...more
Lígia Bellini
Oh wow!! Amaaazing sequel!!! I think, the second book is even better, because now we can know more about Grayson's personality and what really happened to him. I wish him to find a freedom from the evil inside him! It's also really nice the way, the girls, Grayson and also their mother "learned" to deal with the "unexpected creatures"! There's new interesting characters, but also more knowledge about the "previous" characters, like the grotesques Marco and even Lennier. I find very dark the whol...more

I'm the author of the YA Gothic thriller THE BEAUTIFUL & THE CURSED, along with its sequel THE LOVELY & THE LOST. I've been intrigued by les grotesques ever since I came across an old, black-and-white photograph of a Notre Dame gargoyle keeping watch over the city of Paris. I wanted to tell that gargoyle's story. Soon, the idea for The Beautiful & the Cursed was born.

I live in New Engl...more
