‘Whitechapel. The East End of London. Streets of tawdry degradation and grisly dark crimes of unlimited horror…..’
From the comforts of London’s middle class suburbia, to taking refuge in an old abandoned asylum in Whitechapel, Megan’s life has changed immeasurably since meeting the vampire, Harper Cain. Now living with Harper, his blood brother Garrick and Garrick’s gang of mercenaries,
Megan finds herself at the centre of an age-old war between the vampires and their enemies, the lycan-esque Varúlfur. Still struggling to cope with the turn her life has taken, Megan discovers that not only is she unable to escape the ghosts of her past, but she is going to have to contend with some very dark revelations about her future.
A vampire with the history of Whitechapel running through her veins she might be, but Megan will soon learn that there are far worse things to be frightened of than ghosts.
*** Spoiler free Review ***
`The Lost` is the second installment in The Whitechapel Chronicles. And since author Lindsey Clarke has not once disappointed me I just knew the second part of the dark vampire tale was going to blow my mind. And I was right. I thought `Playing Dead` ( book #1 ) was genius….
I won´t waste anyone´s time giving my own description of the story because I completely lack that skill ( in other words- I suck at it ). I will, however, say one thing- Lindsey Clarke is AMAZEBALLS. `The Lost` is flipping brilliant!
Megan, Harper and Brandon´s story continues and the path they take is unexpected and far from easy ( emotionally and physically ).
After the events in `Playing Dead` I never thought Megan could be confronted with anything worse. I mean- turning into a vampire and finding out your husbands fury secret is tough, but not as tough as what happens in this part of the story.
New characters are introduced, challenging Megan and Harper and the entire vampire race. The obstacles become more and more challenging. The characters thread into more unknown territories.
A lot is at stake. Are the characters up for saving the world as it´s known? Will Megan find the answers to her questions? Will she ever see the light in the never ending dark tunnel?
I cannot being to tell you how extremely nail-bite-worthy `The Lost` is ( in fact- I´d probably end up writing a full novel explaining every awesome detail about this story, so best I don´t start.).
What´s extremely noticable is how much Megan´s character has grown. The Megan from the beginning is long gone and is replaced by a curious, head strong woman who knows what she wants and won´t stop for anything to get what she needs… even if that means going against Harper.
With `The Lost` being the second book in the series, one would think that this is a bridge to the grande final. It isn´t. `The Lost ` feels like a warm up story, getting ready to blow a reader´s mind.
My mind has been blown away already and there´s still `Savage Wings` ( book #3 ).
If it were up to me, this story would never end.
The Cover- 5 stars ( It fits perfectly with the first cover. The coloring is fab and catchy. ❤ )
The Story – 5 stars ( I´m not sure my heart can handle more. But it has to, damn it! Extremely well thought through story. LOVE IT! )
The Characters – 5 stars ( The author has an evil side. She creates characters you want to take home with you and then does the unthinkable to them. I guarantee- you will want a Harper Cain, a Brandon and even a Garrick. You´ll want a Josiah, a Fenton… all at your beck and call.)
My emotional state after finishing `The Lost`– Drained in the best possible way ever. Totally satisfied but afraid to continue at the same time.
I´m giving `The Lost` ( The Whitechapel Chronicles #2 ) by author Lindsey Clarke 5 out of 5 stars
