Book Review: The Lovely and the Lost by Page Morgan

The Lovely and the Lost (The Dispossessed #2)
Author:  Page Morgan
Publisher:  Delacorte Press, 368 pages
Expected Publication Date:  May 13, 2014
*Received ARC from publisher via NetGalley

From Goodreads:
Ingrid and Gabby survived the Underneath. They saved their brother, Grayson, from a future of dark servitude and exposed a plot to undermine the Alliance. But danger still lurks in the streets of Paris, and the Dispossessed, perched on the city's bridges and rooftops, might not be able to save their human wards this time.

Review:
Reasons Why You Should Read This Book (and Series):

1.  Gargoyles.  It has gargoyles!  Hot, sexy, and tortured gargoyles who are known as the Dispossessed.  They did something really horrible when they were human and now they live forever, slaves of the angels, assigned to a certain area and tasked with protecting the humans that live in that area from demons.  But the Dispossessed don't like humans (and they hate the angels).  There's also an Alliance of humans who fight demons and do not trust the Dispossessed.  What a unique and wonderful world Page Morgan has created.

2.  Forbidden love.  The ultimate forbidden love.  Luc is a gargoyle who is in love with Ingrid.  If they even do more than kiss, he unwillingly transforms into his hard gargoyle self (which means no physical intimacy).  Oh yeah, and the other gargoyles will kill him for being in a relationship with a human.  And then there's the mean angels who also won't allow it.  Not good.

3.  Sibling love.  Ingrid and Grayson are twins who have always had a special relationship.  Which means she'll do anything to save him…and help him through what he's currently doing through. And there's also her sister Gabby.  All three of them love each other and would lay down their lives for each other.  So it was nice to see a paranormal book with such strong sibling relationships.

4.  More than one romance.  Usually there's the main romance and that's it.  But not in this series.  You have other romances to root for (and more than one swoony guy).  

5.  It's set in Paris.  Enough said.

The sequel was amazing!!!  And that ending…oh Luc, Ingrid, Gaby, Nolan. *sob*  Just read it!

  1. I need to read this series!! How have I not heard of this before?? I've only read one other gargoyle book (White Hot Kiss) and I'm always looking for books with great sibling relationships since I have such a close relationship with my two sisters.

    1. I think you would love this series. I know the TBR list just keeps growing longer, but definitely add this series! All of the siblings play a big role…I think you would really enjoy that part of it (along with the gargoyles and swoony guys). :) ~Pam

  4. I don't know anything about this one! But it seems that gargoyles are becoming a more popular mythical creature. Along with Jinni's I'm noticing. I don't know much about either of them and curious how they can be human. Anyway, this one sounds good. I'm all for forbidden romance and sibling relationships and Paris! I'm assuming there are no love triangles here?

    1. It definitely comes in waves, it seems. There is a slight triangle with one of the MCs, but you know where that character's heart is so it didn't bother me. I would love to know your thoughts if you read it! ~Pam
