    Oh¿my¿swearword! The tension in this one was unbreakable! Syd go

    Oh…my…swearword! The tension in this one was unbreakable! Syd goes head on with a rival coven- The Dumonts- and I mean all out. The coven’s leader is known to be the sister of the coven leader of the Purity coven, who we know from previous books, challenged Syd’s Grandmother Ethpeal eighteen years ago. Purity coven lost, but so did Eptheal, by losing her mind and ending up in crazy land. It comes full circle when the Dumonts pay a visit, and it’s not a friendly one.

    We get to see Quaid again (Yaay!) but, it’s not in the best of circumstances. I literally was hating on him from the way he treated Syd like she didn’t even exist. It was heartbreaking! Syd’s circle of friends is falling apart too, something that I felt was coming, but was hard to see play out. We see different sides of Pain, Allison, Page and Syd’s Uncle Frank. The havoc that the Dumonts cause while they are in town is devastating and I completely disliked each and every one of them to the core. One particular Dumont seems to have it in for Syd really bad and I hope she gets her just desserts for doing what she did to the Hayle coven.

    I really liked the werewolves and I wonder if we’ll be getting more of them in future books. I hope so, it would be awesome! They were intriguing, mysterious and chock full of secrets.

    It’s one of the darkest books of the series and I really enjoyed the way the characters have matured and changed…some for the better, some for way worse indeed. As always I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.

    ¿The Long Lost¿, book five in the Hayle Coven Series, is definit

    “The Long Lost”, book five in the Hayle Coven Series, is definite proof that the series is getting better with each book. Syd, now with her demon and a sidhe princess Shaylee inside her to strengthen her magically, is trying to enjoy the summer holidays which is proving to be anything but a holiday. Several of her friends are leaving town, an evil grudge bearing coven arrives and, as usual, her friends and family are being targeted. Assisted by her family and her pets/friends, Galleytrot, hound of the wild hunt, and her demon cat, Sassafras, she once again has to kick butt to save and protect those who are dear to her. Of course the cheer squad - never her friends - has to complicate matters.

    Sydlynn Hayle is one of the most realistic main characters I have ever met in the numerous books I have read. A very normal rebellious teenager, she has moments of self pity, self doubt and a fierce protectiveness toward her friends and family. Her thoughts and inner dialogue are extremely natural but most of the time also hilariously funny. The author allows her characters to grow throughout the series thus keeping it fresh and believable within the paranormal setting. The witty dialogue, and especially Syd's smart mouth, had me smiling despite the nonstop action and suspense.

    The title of the book is highly appropriate as old grudges from the Hayle coven's past surface and enemies thought to be dead, gone or powerless, reappear. With every new book in the series the author finds a new and refreshing story to tell. “The Long Lost” has a tender, bitter-sweet romantic twist for those who like a bit of romance in a story.

    I won’t hesitate to recommend this book as an absolute must-read for readers of all ages. I would, however, advise that you read the first four books in the Hayle Coven series before you read this one. Believe me, you'll love them all! Thumbs up, five stars and many cheers for an excellent book and a wonderful author! (Ellen Fritz)
