Excerpt:

The van door behind us slides shut. A click signals Marianne’s adherence to my wishes, and then we three descend upon the front door, the crunch of dead leaves and twigs beneath our feet cutting through the uneasy silence the gloom sunrise has brought. In a surprising show of gentlemanly manners, the A.D. moves to open the door. When the handle does not depress, a half smile curves his lips. “It’s locked. But no worries. I can have it picked open in no time.”

“There is no need.”

Darkish-blonde brows scrunch together. “But—”

“Stand to the side, please.”

When he fails to move at my thinly veiled order, Mary not so gently yanks our companion away.

The door before us is thick. The handle is ornate. It is a beautiful door, no doubt chosen specifically to adorn a building as fine as Bücherei. It takes me three strong, measured swings of my war hammer against the handle and its surrounding area to break it apart and permanently scar its beauty. Picking a lock is kind, respectful even. A picked lock can be relocked. I do not wish this door to close behind me. I do not wish to be respectful of Bücherei.

The time for genteel manners is gone.

The A.D. is in danger of catching flies with his mouth as he ogles the door’s remnants. For someone who professes to be so clever, he certainly underestimates ladies far too often.

Stale darkness, oppressive and opaque all at once, looms before us. I am unafraid, though. I am not even taken aback. I believe in the impossible, after all. I have seen, lived the impossible.

I step past the wreckage into the house.

The Forgotten Mountain - Off With Their Heads

About THE FORGOTTEN MOUNTAIN:

After years spent in Wonderland, Alice Reeve learned the impossible was quite possible after all. She thought she left such fantastical realities behind when she finally returned to England.

Now Alice has become a member of the clandestine Collectors’ Society, and the impossible has found her again in the form of an elusive villain set on erasing entire worlds. As she and the rest of the Society race to bring this mysterious murderer to justice, the fight becomes painfully personal.

Lives are being lost. Loved ones are shattered or irrevocably altered. Each step closer Alice gets to the shadowy man she hunts, the more secrets she unravels, only to reveal chilling truths. If she wants to win this war and save millions of lives, Alice must once more embrace the impossible and make the unimaginable, imaginable.

Sometimes, the rabbit hole leads to terrifying places.

My Review

Ok, this is a tough review for me to write. This book was fantastic. It really was – so if you have read the first two book, you must, MUST read this one.

Heather Lyons is an amazingly talented writer with an imagination to rival any. While it took me a little while to get into this book, it’s probably because I didn’t read the fist two. And even though I feel that you should, I won’t be. Why? Because I feel totally brought up to date and I don’t feel the need to go back.

The Forgotten Mountain takes books and fairy tales to a whole new level with the series and I am so, so glad I read it. The details, the journey, the characters – holy wow! So well done, so enthralling! Weird that I had a hard time with the review right? Well, there is an aspect that I was unprepared for, one that I would have known about if I had red the previous books I believe. the dreaded love triangle.

Now, this is not prominent in the story – at least not to a first time reader. The entire book had me rooting for the good guys and wanting to kill the bad guys. And then I found out about the triangle. I hate these. Especially when the two guys are great. Will I continue the series? No, i don’t think so. Is it because the book isn’t good? Absolutely not! In fact, if not for this aspect I would be ready to devour the next installment. I would. But I can’t; it just doesn’t suit me as a reader.

However, if you don’t mind that, then do yourself a favor and read the entire series. It is so well written, so original, and definitely an impressive piece of fiction. I even give it a 5 cup rating. This is why it is so hard to write. I don’t want anyone to think I didn’t like it. I did!! It just isn’t my cup of coffee.

Don’t miss the first two books in this series…
