Paige Crutcher, author of the "mystical, magical, and wildly original"* The Orphan Witch, weaves a spellbinding tale of contemporary fantasy, romance, and Irish mythology as a woman torn out of time faces a dangerous coven, otherworldly creatures, and a seductive demigod to save the souls of a cursed island in The Lost Witch. 1922. The town of Evermore off the coast of Ireland is under the protection of a Goddess. She has bestowed power upon village healer Brigid Heron to ensure the heart of magic within the Lough of Brionglid-the lake of dreams-remains untouched. For the witches of Knight want to absorb its powerful energies and release the Damned from the Otherworld. Brigid has devoted her whole life to being Evermore's guardian, immersing herself in witchcraft, and sacrificing her own dreams. Until Luc Knightly, a trickster god with his own claim on the lough, offers Brigid her heart's desire in exchange for betraying her Goddess's trust. 2022. A century later, Evermore is under siege. The witches of Knight wield chaos magic, opening the rift between the island and the Otherworld wider every day. Beings born from folklore nightmares prey on the villagers, consuming their very humanity. Ophelia Gallagher, Brigid's descendent, and her fellow witch Finola McEntire do their best to keep the monsters and mayhem at bay. Brigid awakens in this world with no memory of how she traveled into the future, and why Evermore has been cursed. To seal the lough and stop the witches of Knight, she must work with Ophelia and Finola to help her remember the events of a hundred years ago. But the knowledge she seeks lies with Luc Knightly himself--mysterious, handsome, and powerful--and the one who once upon a time granted Brigid her dearest wish-a daughter. To save Evermore, Brigid may have to lose her daughter-again "Enthralling and lyrical"-J. R.

Not plotted very well. Was sometimes hard to follow. Characters not well-developed. It was entertaining in a genre I enjoy reading. ( )

Fun story filled with witches, time travel, spells and a hot bad guy. ( )

The Lost Witch by Paige Crutcher follows Brigid Heron on a journey through time to find her daughter and save her beloved town of Evermore. When Brigid’s daughter is taken by magic, the Goddess of the lough transports Brigid through time to find the answers she needs to make everything right again.

When Brigid arrives 100 years later in her town with little to no memory, she finds two other witches living in her house who help her discover the past in order to save the future. With the help of her family and the long-lost love of her life, Brigid vows to find her daughter and save Evermore from the monsters and evil witches that will stop at nothing to destroy her for her powers.

While I enjoy a cozy mystery once in a while, this one didn’t really do it for me. The narration of the audiobook was not enjoyable. Certain character portrayals were incredibly annoying. The storyline, while somewhat interesting, was so confusing that I didn’t know what was going on or if the events were real or taking place in a dream. The story jumped around a lot and I lost track of which character was doing what. There may have even been a little bit too much action in the story to be able to make sense of it all. The book was like a nine-hour battle with very little background information. I liked how the story started and ended but the middle was too confusing. I listened to the audiobook for fifty percent of the book and then had to switch to the physical book just to get through it; reading the words made the story much easier to understand.

The theme of this novel was the basic love, family, and good vs. evil that has been done many times before but I will say the inclusion of bits of Irish folklore is was helped bring this story to life. Had there been more background information about the characters and the events taking place, I feel that the story would have had better flow. I feel there should be another novel just about the Goddess and the different realms to prepare the reader for this novel. One thing about this novel that was entirely unneeded was the podcast segments inserted into the story; there is nothing I dislike more when I’m trying to follow a storyline.

Sadly, I would not recommend this novel as it failed to hold my interest for the majority of the time. If you do decide to give it a try, I suggest reading the book versus listening to the audiobook.

Thanks to NetGalley for providing me with a digital ARC to read and review. ( )

The Lost Witch by Paige Crutcher.

Although it took me almost halfway in to become fully engaged with this novel, I wasn’t bored. The little crush I developed on Knightly probably helped that! I did find the occasional banter between Ophelia and Finola juvenile, and the alpha posturing from Finola to Knightly annoying. Just not my cup of tea.

I had a good sense of the characters and I saw personal growth in them. I feel like I knew Brigid and was suffering with her when she felt a tease of memory out of reach. Her emotional turmoil and heartache were expressed well.

I liked the cover art and book description. That would be enough to have grabbed my attention at a bookstore.

My appreciation to St. Martin’s Press and author Paige Crutcher for the Goodreads Giveaway and ARC edition. ( )

1922 - Before
“The town of Evermore floated outside the ring of Kerry, off the coast of Ireland” and is mostly invisible to outsiders. There is a white stone house with a slate roof and a bright blue door just a wee bit from the Lake of Dreams. A witch lives there - Brigid Heron is her name and she is the everything in this story. She is a healer. She has a daughter, her name is Dove, and she is the result of a deal gone bad. She is lost to Brigid - lost to the Lake of Dreams. A man was involved but not just any man. There is a lost memory reminding there is always a hidden cost to magic, especially the magic of a god.

2022 - Now
Brigid is facing her fear, awakening in her cellar not remembering anything, exploring what is her house but not hers, calling upon her Goddess for help, receiving no answer. It is now inhabited by Ophelia Gallagher, a descendant of Brigid Heron, and her roommate and best friend Finola McEntire. They are modern day women with cell phones but they are also women of magic who are trying to protect their village from the Lake of Dreams.

Nightmare fairies, goblins, pookas, banshees, monsters, the damned and other things that go bump in the night are hungry in their search for victims. The circle is closing. The clash is going to be monumental and catastrophic as Brigid, Ophelia, Finola and The Man join forces to combat the witches of the Lake while trying to find and save Dove.

I loved the characters - Brigid who likes to argue and The Man who likes to listen, Ophelia and Finola for their irreverent thoughts, chatter and pop culture references. The Ever More Podcast was close to being hysterical and so happy to hear that the sheep are once more thriving. I enjoyed the inclusion of just enough Gaelic and Celtic traditions, terms, expressions, festivals so there was no mistaking that this was a tale of Ireland and it’s many mysteries. I loved that this was a love story on so many levels. It was all a bit of magic.

Thank you St. Martin’s Griffin and NetGalley for a copy. ( )
