Delaney Lortal is a unique breed of girl. She is well spoken, extremely well read, and highly ambitious for love, but it is not those qualities that make her so unique. It's not even because in twenty-two years of life, she has never set foot outside of her grandfather's house.

I love fantasy novels and have an expansive collection that date back to long before most readers were born. I’ve kept them over the years because they ‘spoke’ to me, promising to become epic sagas that deserved more recognition that what they garnered.
Song of Eidolons is one such novel. Beautifully written, Jessica McHugh’s tale is filled with misfortune, secrecy, and romance. The lead character, Delaney, has led an odd life. At 22, she’s never been outside her grandfather’s house. Strange as i...more

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...more

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. She doesn’t dumb down her vocabulary and she isn’t afraid to make you think. McHugh’s writing is exceptional on its own; when you read it with a dictionary and an encyclopedia on hand, you actually learn. And, even more amazingly, you enjoy it.

Song of Eidolons is an exceptional novel. It weaves togethe...more

I wasn’t really sure about the book at first. The plot consisted of a grandfather that basically kept his granddaughter a prisoner in their home for her entire 22 years of life. I read the passages with complete disbelief; child abuse, child endangerment, and a lack of Child Protective Services intervention. 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
