Series: Wayward Children #8
Released: January 10, 2023
Antoinette (Antsy) is familiar with loss. It all began when she lost her father – not literally, but he is still very much out of her grasp, so effectively, it’s the same thing. When her world continues to change, and not for the better, Antsy realizes it may be time to do something for herself.
That something just so happens to be running away. Her running takes her to a door. A very peculiar door. And with it, Antsy finds herself in a new world – where lost things go.
She’s done it again. Seanan McGuire sure knows how to deliver a compelling read, doesn’t she? The Wayward Children series has some of the best worldbuilding around, and I am pleased to announce that Lost in the Moment and Found is no exception. If anything, this may be one of my favorites thus far.
I’ll admit that I felt a bit of trepidation when picking up Lost in the Moment and Found. There’s a forward that warns readers of some of what is to come (see my trigger warnings down below). I knew those scenes would hit hard, and it would have been an injustice to try and diminish them. Yet I can see why they were a necessary foundation for everything that follows.
Lost in the Moment and Found is dazzling and emotional, throwing readers into a dozen worlds and mini-adventures yet coated with a sense of unease. It is a masterclass storytelling showcase, and I can’t wait for the next addition to this series.
