Review: Lost in the Moment and Found

Lost in the Moment and Found by Seanan McGuire

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the hardest book to read of the entire series. There’s a content warning at the front of the book that explains why – but it is truly one of the cruelest. I think it’s also a book that needs to be ready by young adults and parents and anyone else who has to deal with the subject matter either as a victim or a potential helper.

On a happier or more fun note, there are some interesting Easter Eggs in this story. We also get a bit more information about the magic working behind the doors. Combined with what we learn in Where the Drowned Girls Go, I think McGuire is setting up a larger meta-narrative that may end up in a surprising conclusion (in book 10?).

The description says this can be read as a standalone book – and that’s true. But it’s not the first book I would recommend on this series. I would either start at the beginning or, if you insist on not starting with the first one, maybe start with book .

I’m excited to see where the larger story goes.
