The Forgotten Mountain by Heather Lyons
“Madness—that old, dear friend of mine—has come home for a visit. And I welcome its return with open arms.”
In this third installment in The Collector’s Society series, Alice of Wonderland must act fast in order to save those closest to her. Things become more dangerous as the members of the society uncover more truths, and unexpected information comes forth about those who have acted against them and seek to do more harm.
It’s up to Alice and her people to find more answers and to save timelines in danger of being destroyed. Though the odds are against them, the fight has become personal and Alice will stop at nothing to keep those she cares about safe and unharmed.
“To follow blindly is to yield possession of your own compass.”
This is such a special and creative series, I cannot think of anything else out there like it! I love Lyon’s interpretations of characters and stories from classic novels that we are already familiar with. I love the idea that characters have a hidden story outside that which we see, a very unique retelling/new creation.
In this book we got lots more answers as to who was deleting the timelines and how, now we just need the why. Whenever I read this series I always find myself wanting to run off and read or reread classic stories mentioned within. My favorite character is Grimsdyke the spider; if he wasn’t a spider I would hug the crap out of that little creature. If only we could all have a cool spider assassin to keep us company wherever we went.
Action packed and thrilling from the very first page, this is a series you cannot miss out on! The ending was crazy! I cannot wait to read the next book.
“If this isn’t a fairy tale, then I don’t know what else to call it.”
