The Lovely and the Lost is the second instalment in Page Morganís ďDispossessed TrilogyĒ of gothic paranormal romance novels. This novel picks up where the previous one, The Beautiful and the Cursed, ended, following the narrative of several characters. Ingrid Waverley is struggling to control her demon powers and is still torn between her forbidden love for her gargoyle protector, Luc, and her friend, Vander Burke. Ingridís younger sister, Gabby, wants nothing more than to become a member of the demon fighting Alliance, and, to this end, she has been practising weapons training in secret. Ingridís twin brother Grayson is struggling to overcome his own half-demon nature. Meanwhile politicking and intrigue continue among the gargoyle castes and in the ranks of their sometimes allies, sometimes enemies, the Alliance. While all of this is going on, more half-demon youths are being discovered, and the Alliance searches to find them in the catacombs of Paris. In addition to all of this plot, there is a mysterious and sinister group with a history of unethical demon experiments that is desperate to get their hands on Ingrid.
