At the end of the last book, Alice and Mary Lennox (of The Secret Garden) are on the hunt for their loves: Finn (of Huckleberry Finn) and Victor (son of Dr. Frankenstein), adopted brothers who may have perished when the book world in which they hunted known killer Sweeney Todd was destroyed. Against all odds, Alice believes Finn to be alive; she has lost love before, and regained it with Finn. She will stop at nothing to find him, and, if that means breaking and entering, well, she luckily has renowned thief The Artful Dodger on her side.
Unfortunately, finding Finn doesn't bring her much relief--because he's been enchanted and will likely die if she cannot find the 13th Wise Woman, from Grimm's Fairytales, to undo the curse. This entire series is an incredibly creative literary enterprise. I adore Alice, who is single-minded of purpose, and a great heroine. Now an exiled queen, she's all grown up from her first trip to Wonderland, and her loved-and-lost story is all the more powerful because she chose political peace over personal comfort. She tells the bulk of this story, and her pain and courage is plain.
The main objective of all Alice's travels is to locate Gabe Pfeffer, or Lygari, or his much older name, The Pied Piper. Trouble is, there's trouble every step of the way. Like most of the Brothers Grimm's works, this is not a light-hearted fable. Nope, it's a dark tale that includes vengeance, lies, enchantment and a teeny bit of sexytimes. I'm kinda frustrated by the end...because I MUST know what happens next, and, alas, it's a kicker cliffhanger, IMHO. I don't want to spoil the book, so I'm ending this review here. If you think you'll like creative literary fantasy with a vengeful queen who will do absolutely anything to save her prince, this book is for you.
“But time is not always a generous mistress. Time allows slow changes, the warping of beliefs based upon observations both common and uncommon.”
Heather Lyons once again takes beloved characters of stories past and adds her own spin to them while still maintaining a level of authenticity. The highlight for me though was getting to really see a different side of all her characters in the third book. With the fates of their men unknown, Alice and Mary really have to become even stronger than readers have previously experienced. Though we saw pieces and knew Alice's inclinations, it shone so much more prominently in The Forgotten Mountain. If you're a fan of Alice, I have no doubts you will love her more by novel's end! While I had appreciated all the characters in the first two books, different attributions appear and relationships are formed, that made me adore them even more.
“Make no mistake about it: we are at war. We fight not only for ourselves, but for those who will never meet us, who will never know our names. I am asking much of you all. When you joined the Collectors’ Society, you probably could not fathom that someday you would be asked to put your life on the line for those you will never know.Read more ›
MORE... I MUST have more immediately!!! Where to begin with this book? This will take you for one hell of a rollercoaster ride of emotions. Some of the plot is easily foreseeable but I promise you that the gut wrenching, e-reader flinging cliffhanger will blindside even the best plot guesser. As always Ms. Lyons has a magical way of not only infusing each character with attributes, hangups, quirks and such depth that it is impossible to not find yourself falling in love with and/or rooting for the demise of the people who populate these amazingly intricate and detailed worlds. This book finds us wading through the ever shifting, not fully tangible, sometimes downright improbable, magical realms of Fairytales.
"This woman, this queen who battles giants for me, saves me from fairy tale villains, granted me a title. She is my fairy tale, come to life."
I love her writing style and of course I adore her characters. The premise and plot twists are unique as well as attention grabbing and keep you firmly in the book's gravitational pull until the very last word. I won't go into too much detail for fear of revealing too much of the plot but it is extremely difficult to not root for the romantic unions in this book (as is a pattern with all of Ms. Lyons books). She can write one hell of a love story (and don't get me started with the love triangles which normally I shy away from)!They are fierce, poignant, beautifully humanly flawed, and unbelievably swoon worthy.
"True love is exactly what she warned us it would be: strength and fragility all at once. True love can fortify a person or it can shatter them mindlessly.Read more ›
