Delaney (love the name btw!) is twenty-two years old and lives with her Grandfather ‘Dags’. Because he worries about her safety, Delaney has never been allowed to leave the house. She spends her time reading and has never questioned the fact that she can’t go out. Then one day while looking out of the window, she sees children ‘outside’ flying a kite and looking happy. This makes her wonder if the outside world is really as bad as Dags has told her and for the first time she questions his reason

I should get it out of the way right from the start: I love Jessica McHugh’s writing style. I love it for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is that she doesn’t talk down to her readers.

Song of Eidolons is an exceptional novel. It weaves togethe

Who keeps a child completely captive (completely to the point of her never even breathing fresh air) and allows him/her to believe that it’s normal. I actually had to put aside the book for ...more
Can I just say...Wow! I could sit and tell you everything about this book and still not touch the complexity that it is. Jessica McHugh is one phenomenal writer. She provides a lush scene that isn't talked to death like I have seen. She has the ability to put you into this story as a voyeur and keep you coming back to be a fly on the wall. I thoroughly enjoyed her character Delaney. She had innocence, strength, and passion that I admire. Just when you think you've got what Jessica has for you sh ...more
