    One thought on “The Lost Child of Lychford”

    1. Lizzie, Autumn and Judith are back to defend Lychford from another attack by demonic forces As she prepares for Christmas, Lizzie begins to see the ghost of a young boy who seems utterly lost and when she investigates Judith realizes that the two are somehow linked.This series continues well with a strongly Christian influence and slant, which is interesting given the occult and mythic angles It will be interesting to see where Paul takes this.

    2. I absolutely love this novella series 3 strong women, a small town, some fairy neighbors What could go wrong can t wait for the next one.

    3. This was another excellent instalment in Cornell s novella series By turns terrifying and heartwarming, and although supernatural, manages to perfectly capture small town village English life in neat little slices.

    4. Received to review via NetgalleyI was a little worried I wouldn t remember enough about the first novella to follow all of this, but I quickly cottoned on again The characters were fairly memorable, after all, particularly Judith her cantankerous practicality was as fun and refreshing this time round as last I felt like that character had a little less screen time, so to speak, while the Reverend Lizzie had , but it did make sense in the context of the story Lizzie is really the key figure in th [...]

    5. It was quite easy to jump into the second Lychford novella, and it was of a higher quality than the first More refined, and some great fantasy elements It is also set during Christmas, so it was getting me into the Christmas spirit, albeit a wintery one for a Southern Hemisphere dweller.Lizzie, reverend of Lychford and also a witch of sorts, see the ghost of a child one morning in her church The ghost has a plea, and Lizzie, Autumn and Judith, the three Lychford witches must solve a Christmas my [...]

    6. Oh dear, that was quite suspenseful I was reading at Mach 3 because I absolutely had to know how it ended My eyes were probably as round as saucers

    7. My Opinion I won this from a giveaway It in no way impacted this review I liked this book, but, felt all along that I was missing the back story It can stand alone as a book, but, I would have prefered to read the first in the series beforehand.The book flowed nicely and it had enough intrigue to keep you reading and turning the pages Which was a big plus for me I sometimes can not get through a book because it is just, blah But, this one is full of turns I won t say twist cause you know what is [...]

    8. Review also published hereThe Lost Child of Lychford arrived in my mailbox a few months back, and since I had already planned on reading Witches of Lychford anyway, I figured this was worth reading and reviewing With all the setup done in Witches, I ended up loving The Lost Child of Lychford than I did its predecessor Not only does it fix some of the complaints I had about the previous book, but it also turned into something genuinely creepy.My biggest disappointment with Witches has got to be [...]

    9. I m impressed, and I definitely must find myself a copy of Witches of Lychford to read I found the cover and blurb tempting and, despite having not read Witches of Lychford how I have missed it is the question did I find myself quickly engrossed in this book It s a short story, but it manages to contain a lot of action, humor and some paranormal things like an unhappy little boy apparition Personally, I just love the love portion part of the story It gave the story a hilarious aspect.This may be [...]

    10. Wow, just wow I read this in one sitting because, well, how could I not The three witches we are introduced to in The Witches of Lychford are once again called upon to fight dark forces messing with the boundaries of the town and threatening to destroy Christmas For such a short book, Paul Cornell has this jam packed with action without it feeling forced or rushed I really hope he continues with this series.

    11. Quirky and fun A very interesting story with a Christmas setting The trio of witches built up a great chemistry through the first installment and it carries well here Imaginative in many ways , although a few steps in the plot seemed a little easy It had the feel of a good Christmas special on TV

    12. It s Christmastime, and Reverend Lizzie has than enough on her festive plate when what looks like the ghost of a small boy appears to her asking for help She immediately calls on her friends Autumn and Judith, who helped her in defeat the evil corporation in Witches of Lychford.I really love this series there s a very English cosiness to the rural village setting, which blends surprisingly well with supernatural forces of evil rather like the way the local reverend Lizzie is able to be BFFs wit [...]

    13. Lizzie, Lychford s reverend, finds her Christmas upset by the arrival of a boy s ghost and a questionable couple who want to be married on Christmas Eve.This novella includes the three women from the first in the series Judith, Autumn, and Lizzie, with Lizzie having focus here The three pull together to try and stop evil from breaking the barrier to our world I didn t like this one quite as much as the first one, but I ll still definitely be reading the next The fact that it s set at Christmas [...]

    14. I m grateful to the publisher for an advance copy via NetGalleyI am NOT Paul Cornell Like him, however, I am married to a Church of England priest and live in a small community in Southern England So I am loving this series see here for review of The Witches of Lychford as much for its depiction of the joys and frustrations of life in such a community, as for the supernatural spooky stuff.The supernatural, spooky stuff is, is though, magnificently done, truly eerie and frightening Lychford seems [...]

    15. On sale 22 November 2016 from Tor Sent to me by the publisher at no cost.Previously in Lychford, three women discovered that Bad Things were going down in both a spiritual and literal sense in their village Together, they managed.Now, it s some time later in fact, it s Christmas So you just know something bad is going to happen Lizzie is the pastor and she s relatively settled Autumn is still running her magic shop and she s taken on Judith, ostensibly as her shop assistant but actually because [...]

    16. I read the first book in the series called Witches of Lychford and enjoyed it very much This one wasn t as good I was halfway through the novella before it got interesting Overall, the story was okay, a solid 3 stars, but nothing special Because the first book was very good and the second book did pick up in the second half, I would read a third book in this series I received this from NetGalley for an honest review.

    17. Is horror supposed to be this funny Especially Lizzie, the vicar We have similar thoughts about popular Christmas music and the extra numbers who show up in church on Christmas Eve.Some favorite lines She waited for the other shoe to drop, but as always with Finn, it failed to It was like he only wore one shoe And you don t get proper Christmas Number Ones these days, she said Just whoever s won the bloody X Factor Judith looked at her and blinked like a tortoise What does that have to do with a [...]

    18. I didn t like The Lost Child of Lychford nearly as well as its predecessor It seemed to have of a tone of horror, with the humor centered around a bad Christmas song It was pretty obvious what was going on once we started talking about statues I guess each of our three heroines made some contribution toward the resolution, but overall it wasn t nearly as much fun as Witches Perhaps I enjoyed Witches so much that my expectations were too high.

    19. The leading ladies carry the story here, just like in the previous entry I particularly enjoyed a hysterically funny sequence near the middle where things start going comically wrong for Liz and Autumn However I was kinda disappointed by the villains they re just cookie cutter Big Bads and felt like an afterthought by the end 3.5 stars, rounded up because I really liked the middle bits.

    20. Again, I wish this had been longer I really like the world building and main characters I d love to spend longer in their company

    21. The Lost Child of Lychford is the sequel to The Witches of Lychford, and I don t think it s gonna make much sense if you haven t read the first one However, it s a nice little addition to the world Cornell has created and I enjoyed it I will be keeping my eyes on further books in this series world and I ll definitely check out Cornell s other books.As it was established in the first book, Lychford is an important town located at the crossroads of many worlds The boundaries of the town create the [...]

    22. I was a big fan of these characters in the first book and sad that it was so short, so when the opportunity arose to get this one from NetGalley, I leapt at the chance Paul Cornell has definitely mastered the short novel I m not sure if it s short enough to count as a novella in a way that many writers frustratingly fail to do While I m left hungry for , the book itself doesn t feel incomplete or rushed, and it reads like it s been given the time it needed to be told I ve read a few novellas lat [...]
