Song of Eidolons
By Jessica McHugh
About the book:
Delaney Lortal is a unique breed of girl. She is well spoken, extremely well read, and highly ambitious for love, but it is not those qualities that make her so unique. It's not even because in twenty-two years of life, she has never set foot outside of her grandfather's house. What makes her so unique is the truth behind a mysterious secret that has made her the target of a clandestine Order called the Orisanima. As wondrous as it is heartbreaking, Song of Eidolons follows Delaney's journey of enlightenment as she struggles to peel back the layers of deceit to discover the amazing truth about her origins.
This is my second review for Jessica McHugh as I have previously read Rabbits in the Garden.
Song of Eidolons was an interesting read. The author, Jessica McHugh has a way of describing her characters in a way that you either love them or don’t. McHugh’s writing attracts your attention from the very beginning to where you feel the need to get to the end. McHugh weaves a tale of mystery, suspense, romance, and fantasy.
This book centers around Delaney and Dags, who is Delaney’s grandfather. Delaney is now 22 years old. She has spent her entire life inside of her grandfather’s house. He never kept her prisoner, she just grew up believing that everyone lives like they do, inside. As you read Song of Eidolons, you will discover why Dags rasied Delaney the way he did. Delaney wants to experience love and find her soul mate. At first, it didn’t make sense as to why Dags kept Delaney within the walls of their home. When we learn of his reasons, I can understand. He was protecting and caring for her from her own origins. I think Dags made an unselfish decision to raise Delaney the way he did.
Delaney is confused as to why she can’t find her true love. She knows what she is looking for and its so close. She finds her love and gives her whole heart.
Song of Eidolons is mixed with love and evil and pitting both against each other. There are heroes in this story and each made sacrifices to save others. A very powerful book of love, family, understanding, and evil.
