Mini Review – The Lost Child of Lychford

Title: The Lost Child of Lychford

Author: Paul Cornell

Series: Lychford #1

3.5 stars

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

From Goodreads:

It’s December in the English village of Lychford – the first Christmas since an evil conglomerate tried to force open the borders between our world and… another.

Which means it’s Lizzie’s first Christmas as Reverend of St. Martin’s. Which means more stress, more expectation, more scrutiny by the congregation. Which means… well, business as usual, really.

Until the apparition of a small boy finds its way to Lizzie in the church. Is he a ghost? A vision? Something else? Whatever the truth, our trio of witches (they don’t approve of “coven”) are about to face their toughest battle, yet!

My Thoughts

I have to be honest compared to the first I found this one a little confusing. As it was setting up the supernatural mystery, it jumped around our trio of witches of Lychford a bit and it took me a bit to get a handle on the voice for each one, who they were etc.

Once I got the handle on the the characters again they way the different lines of the mystery revealed themselves and brought themselves together was just fantastic. Cornell has a skill of thinking up the weirdest and most interesting concepts for the supernatural some of which caught me off guard others that made me intrigued to know more and made me wish this was bigger than a little novella.

I did enjoy this. I just wish this had a little more context for me to grab on to and learn more about the characters.


I would love to chat all things bookish with you! You can comment down below or find me on Twitter or Goodreads!

Happy Reading!
