批評家のレビュー

"Cornell weaves together a fast-paced story and engrossing character studies; he paints a setting of a gloomy English countryside, disarming his readers with magic and danger that lurks unseen. Beneath the suspense lies wry humor that buoys the tale along." (Publishers Weekly)

"Cornell introduces some genuine existential chills into this ingratiating setting." (Chicago Tribune)

あらすじ・解説

A finalist for the 2017 Locus Award for Best Novella! 

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! 

The Lost Child of Lychford is the sequel to Paul Cornell's Witches of Lychford.

Truly creepy, with some inexplicable magic.

On balance, I enjoyed this novella of Lychford as much as or even more than the first. It had great action, some truly creepy horror scenes and fantastic character development for the three main protagonists. But it also left me feeling somewhat frustrated. I listened at a faster speed than usual, so perhaps I missed key details, but I didn't get a good grasp on how some of the magic worked. I was able to make inferences to explain some occurrences, but others left me scratching my head. I haven't decided yet if this annoys me, or if it's a brilliant touch by the author to portray how magic might be if it actually existed: Arbitrary, chaotic and inexplicable.

Emma Newman's narration was quite good. I especially enjoyed her world-weary, wry voice for Judith.

Gotten irritated by annoying over use of gotten

I enjoyed the first book greatly, this, as is often the case wasn’t as good, but still engaging. However, the quintessentially English story became hugely irritating by the overuse of “gotten”; even where it was obviously inappropriate. A great shame and it would have gotten a higher score if I hadn’t gotten annoyed with the gotten repetition of gotten. My only other complaint is, that, once again no one gotten around to listening to the book before release, otherwise they would have gotten some editing out of the mistakes made by the narrator.

Sloppy production, but otherwise ok

There are a lot of “retakes/repeats" that no-one bothered to cut out, but otherwise it passes the time. If you enjoyed the last book, you'll probably find this ok. More of the same, although not quite as good

A most enjoyable read

Magic, Christmas in an English village and the sense of looming disaster kept me riveted till the end. Emma Newman's narration was the perfect fit for this sequel, giving the three principle characters an extra dimension and adding to the overall suspense.

Not as good as the first

The plot went downhill a bit. Too predictable. I think it being a short book meant we carried on, where we would have stopped if it was longer. Characters likable enough. We are not a fan of Emma Newman's over-pronounced and shrill narration, but this wasn't her worst. Unsure if we'll continue the series at the moment.

Great books but too short.

I really do love these books. The characters are well thought out and instantly likeable....even the unlikeable ones. It’s a real shame that the stories are so short though. Especially with an audiobook, I use them to pass the time when I’m exercising or driving and I like to get my money’s worth.

terrible narration

Marisa Calvin who narrated first book did soooo much better job! I can't stand Emma's voice here, it doesn't fit

A Christmassy Light-Horror or Heavy-Fantasy

'The Lost Child of Lychford' is a fun read; with ghosts, love potions and fairy swords. I wish I'd read this book at Christmas, as that's when it is set and it really takes you there.

The audio has a few quirks... I heard at least 3 re-takes that had not been edited out, but I found it funny rather than seriously confusing.
