ARC Review--Lost by Alyssa Rose Ivy

When all that you love is left behind, you are lost…

Owen is devastated. He was willing to give up everything for Daisy, but she refused. He wants to believe there is a way to bring her back, even if it means getting help from the unlikeliest of sources.

Daisy is numb. She has lost any ability to feel human emotion. Her dreams are her only escape from her dull existence, and even those are fading.

Owen and Daisy are both lost, and only their love for each other will bring them back together.

*New Adult Paranormal Romance*

I received this ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review. I was in no way compensated for this review.

Have I fully mentioned how much I LOVE Alyssa Rose Ivy’s books?! Her New Adult series is one that’s so widespread and it’s PARANORMAL!! I absolutely LOVE how all the series connect and interact with one another, and yet stand entirely on their own! Basically we get a lot of cameo appearances from previous characters and I love that! I love seeing the familiar faces, I love the new faces…it’s all soooo incredible!

Lost is the third installment in the Allure Chronicles! That’s right! We’re not done with Daisy and Owen yet! I initially thought that this one would be the finale, but as the story moved on and that percentage at the bottom got closer and closer to 100, I knew there would be at least one more book!! Now just to wait for that to happen! Alyssa hasn’t let me down yet and I refuse to believe she will do so now!

When we last left Daisy and Owen, Daisy had made the ultimate sacrifice. She agreed to be an Allure in order to save Owen’s wings; though he would’ve been happy to give them up to be with her. Daisy is now struggling to adjust to the Allure lifestyle and oddly enough, she’s failing. She refuses to take in the feelings from people she manipulates, much to her new friends’/group’s(?) dismay. It’s hard to give a name to Violet, Hugh, and Roland. They’re her pack of sorts, but she really doesn’t like being an Allure and fighting off Roland’s advances is getting tiring.

We see Owen still in a depressive state, but it’s Hailey who comes to the rescue and tells him to come home and soon enough the siblings work with their father and newly met uncle in order to find something to help bring the old Daisy back. Courses are set for the characters and the adventure is underway.

I love how these books now give us both the perspectives of the heroine and hero! I just love being able to be inside both of their heads. Plus, the change of scenery is a breath of fresh air, especially when the two are separated constantly. And it’s not necessarily by choice either! So it leaves you acing to see what the other is up to and when the action gets moving, you want to see it keep moving forward!

We see some new characters in this one. And of course, a few familiar faces! Though my constant reading of different books has me struggling to remember everyone! If only I thought to start taking more detailed notes and forming summaries sooner! But I’ll definitely be prepared for the next one!

I’m really hoping Hailey will be getting a story next! I feel like we’re being set up for it with a few tiny moments she has throughout this book! She’s such a fun and feisty character! I love her loyalty to her friends and family. She is definitely someone you would want to have your back!

I don’t want to get into too many details about this one, but we definitely get a few more plot directions for the story! And I am all the more excited to read it!! Hopefully Alyssa will be dishing out details soon, because I am dying for a nibble! LOL!

You can expect to see a lot of great things in this one! The action in this one is more regulated to suspense! We’re building up to things to come and there’s still a few secrets and mysteries to uncover! It leaves you in a very good place, with just enough of a twist to have your jaw dropping! So now we can all eagerly await for the fourth book in this series, because it’s sure to go out with a bang!

Overall Rating 4.5/5 stars
