The first two books in the "Lost Voices" Trilogy have been among my favourites, but I wasn't prepared for just how much Book 3 would up the ante in every conceivable way. In a literary wasteland of too many vampires, werewolves, witches and angels a series featuring mermaids is a welcome departure, but there's so much more to say about it than that. From the somewhat insular and melancholy tone of the first two books, "The Twice Lost" suddenly takes Luce and the entire world into a state of war. Quite honestly the sheer scope of the story about the war between mermaids and humans left me reeling! I don't want to include spoilers so I will simply say that "The Twice Lost" is a harrowing, triumphant, heartbreaking, exhilarating conclusion to the trilogy and left me crying both in sorrow and in joy half a dozen times throughout.
I'm not sure how I felt about the ending, but it is open enough that it leaves me hopeful of a further venture into Luce's world – and if not, then there is plenty of room to imagine whatever future for Luce that we wish. I can't recommend this book highly enough.
