Two kingdoms vying for an ancient power. One witch on the verge of releasing it. But all magic requires an exchange.

Memory Witch, Cecilia, is used to sacrificing for power. She’s exchanged her blood for memories, her pride for respect at court, and her forbidden and unrequited love for her guardian, Rainer, for the sake of her duty. It will all be worth it if she can complete the Gauntlet and release the power of the Lost God.

But when the god of war attacks, sending the two kingdoms from simmering tension to open war, Cecilia and Rainer set out on one final perilous journey. They venture deeper into enemy territory than ever before, aided by a charming hunter who offers Cecilia a glimpse of the adventure and romance she’s always wanted.

As the trio encounters vicious memory-stealing hunters, enchanted illusion forests, and meddling gods who speak in riddles, they draw ever closer to the pinnacle of the Gauntlet, and the sacrifice that Cecilia has been dreading. When faced with the most important magical exchange of her life, Cecilia must choose between her kingdom, and her heart, knowing one will be left irreparably broken.

My Thoughts

Two kingdoms vying for an ancient power. One witch on the verge of releasing it. But all magic requires an exchange.

The Lost God is the first book in the Lost Gods Series by author Sheila Masterson. In the Lost God we meet our main character, Cece who is strong with a little bit of a reckless streak. I really liked her and she was easy to root for. There is a love triangle present in the book, and I know people either love those or hate them so I wanted to point that out. I enjoy a love triangle if it is done well, and I really liked this one.

Cece is on a quest to release the lost god, and along the way she is joined by Rainer (her guardian) and Xander. I loved that there was a lot of romance in this book, and the pacing kept everything flowing along. A lot happens so there was really never a dull moment. I am super excited to continue on with the series and read the Memory Curse really soon! if you are a fan of fantasy romance with magic, lost gods, quest style adventures then I think you will really enjoy this book.
