Blog Tour: What is Lost by Lauren Skidmore

Tour Schedule
What is Lost by Lauren Skidmore

Book Description:

Angry at his failure to exact vengeance on the prince, mask maker Joch flees Venesia to find his lost love. When a red-cloaked assassin promises answers, he has little choice but to trust her -- even though he knows he may be walking into a trap. Unravel the deception in this dazzling story of second chances that will keep you guessing to the last page.

Review:

What is Lost is an enjoyable sequel to What is Hidden. If you haven't already read the first book, I'd highly recommend reading it. Stop reading this review if you haven't read that yet, unless you don't mind spoilers.

I liked that What is Lost was told from Joch's point of view (the bad guy from the first book). That was somewhat unusual, but it helped to understand why he did what he did in book one. I came to like him and Kit, and their interesting relationship.

I suspected who Kit was right away, but did enjoy the story as it came about revealing her true identity.

I was very surprised at the outcome. I definitely didn't see it coming. I enjoy a happy ending, and although Joch ended with good potential for his future, I wouldn't call the ending happy. It was left open for a sequel, which I will happily read. 

About the Author:

Lauren Skidmore grew up in Kansas, with stints in Ohio and New York, and currently lives in Utah. She attended Brigham Young University where she earned a BA in English Teaching with an emphasis in Teaching English as a Second Language and Japanese. She then spent a year in Japan teaching and traveling. When she's not exploring new places, you can probably find her on the internet with fifteen windows open and looking at just one more thing before actually getting something done.
