“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.”
As we're brought further into the mystery of what has happened, I find myself yearning more and more to never escape this adult fantasy series. The Forgotten Mountain is action-packed with equal parts of suspense and romance. Lyons enchants in both an exciting and nostalgic manner. Once you pick it up, prepare to lose several hours of time because the last thing you'll want to do is put it down.
“Madness – that old, dear friend of mine – has come home for a visit. And I welcome its return with open arms.”
I have been so strongly pulled into this fantasy world that Heather Lyons has created. The characters are nefarious and complicated, mysterious and nostalgic. The crossover between stories readers have come to love is absolute brilliance. Not to mention, the writing style of Lyons is unpredictable and mesmerizing. What she has done is so inventive and works perfectly for the ideas she spins with these personalities. If you haven’t started this series yet, you are seriously missing it out. The Forgotten Mountain is the best yet, and I have no doubt that the series will go out with a bang in the next book!
“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.”
There are a number of typos. Maybe because we weren't in Wonderland I noticed them more? Even with incorrect she/he or no attribution to dialogue--It wasn't too hard to suss out who was talking, or what I think the author intended.
These are just five of the words that are descriptive of The Forgotten Mountain. Author Heather Lyons delivers an intricate continuation of The Collectors’ Society tale. While I feel that the book is a bit longer than necessary, I still find it very enjoyable.
Most of this book takes place within an unexplored timeline. Although interesting, I miss the connections to the Society as a whole. I do enjoy the level of action, at times, within this adventure. I am bothered by a certain a plot device. While it moves the story toward a certain goal, it makes no sense for a team that is usually technologically prepared.
The characters, as always, are fascinating. I am particularly enamored with the Twelfth Wise Woman. The usual characters remain complex and entertaining. Among them, I am most impressed with Jack Dawkins, the Artful Dodger. Lyons does an amazing job developing this character, and she truly brings a three-dimensional quality to him.
It is safe to say that the cliffhanger at the end of this book is mind-numbing. It will not soon leave my mind. 4 1/4 stars
