Road of the Lost – Book Review

Road of the Lost by Nafiza Azad

Croi is a brownie, glamoured to be invisible to humans. Her life in the Wilde Forest is ordinary and her magic is weak—until the day that her guardian gives Croi a book about magick from the Otherworld, the world of the Higher Fae. Croi wakes the next morning with something pulling at her core, summoning her to the Otherworld. It’s a spell she cannot control or break.

Forced to leave her home, Croi begins a journey full of surprises…and dangers. For Croi is not a brownie at all but another creature entirely, enchanted to forget her true heritage. As Croi ventures beyond the forest, her brownie glamour begins to shift and change. Who is she really, who is summoning her, and what do they want? Croi will need every ounce of her newfound magic and her courage as she travels a treacherous path to find her true self and the place in the Otherworld where she belongs.

Road of the Lost is a young adult fantasy that centers on a girl’s quest for self-discovery. Croi has been lied to her entire life. And while she starts her journey as a fragile, sweet girl – she changes a lot through the story – sometimes making shocking decisions that seem out of character. The tone of the book changes as well, darker and surprising. I thoroughly enjoyed this magical, dramatic journey. There are several twists that I didn’t see coming that finished out a captivating and inspired story.
