This book kept me reading from the beginning to the end, which is unusual for a non-fantasy reader. Although the book has sixty- nine chapters, the chapters are short and that mesmerized me and motivated me to want more and more. The short chapters helped me to read all three hundred and thirty-nine pages, every drop.
Mulvihill went to great length developing her characters; that included the protagonist, Elsie, those who helped her and all the many villains. One interesting point was how she described her non-human characters. One example, which was one of my favorite chapters, included Elsie’s encounter with a tree that engulfed her.
The foreshadowing technique the author used, readers can easily underestimate the value of the clues.
If you are a fantasy lover, this book is a must read for you. Like me, I believe others will enjoy The Lost Daughter of Easa.
