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 rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is why I love reading!!! This. Series. Right. Here.

I continue to be amazed by Heather Lyons’ imagination. Each new revelation blows my mind and leaves me in complete awe of this author. There’s so much detail, and so many twists and turns. These books are without a doubt highly addictive page turners!! Ms. Lyons has created such an elaborate fictional world using a cast of classic fictional favorites. I love when new characters are introduced, it’s like being on one of those celebrity spotting tours in Hollywood! The excitement is the same, I can assure you.

I don’t want to say too much and give away the story line, but I will say the fight again the Pied Piper and his associates is still on, and Instead of just navigating the timelines of the classics, we now have fairy tale timelines as well! Can it get any better than that?! Oh I’m sure it could. Each time I think Ms. Lyons has exceeded my expectations she always manages to kick it up a notch. Each installment in this series is without a doubt better than the last.

We get a closer look at the A.D. this time around and surprisingly enough he’s really not that bad! Sure he’s a womanizer from time to time, but he has quite a few redeeming qualities. He would do anything for the society and his friends, including putting himself into dangerous situations. He’s strong and extremely competent in battle making him a desirable partner, and his love of adventure puts him right in the middle of every mission. I can easily see him and Alice becoming the best of friends. They really made a connection, not a romantic one, and their respect and admiration for each other grew noticeably. It made me feel all warm and tingly inside! And I may have a teeny tiny crush on the A.D. now.

Alice has always been pretty badass in my opinion, but this new scorned, take-no-prisoners Alice is freakin awesome! From the very beginning she’s in recon mode, determined to make everyone who played a hand in the attack on the society headquarters pay big time. A person who feels like they’ve got nothing left to lose makes for a very dangerous adversary, as Alice proves time and time again throughout the story. There’s no doubt in my mind that she will prevail and come out on top. The story of Alice in Wonderland was always my favorite, so being able to see her brought to life in another story makes me love the original book even more.

I took my time reading this one because I just didn’t want it to end! The Forgotten Mountain is definitely the most action packed and intriguing book in the series so far. I can’t wait to find out what happens next! I must admit that I typically only read series that are complete, meaning all of the books are out and available, and the story itself has ended. My patience is severely lacking so I need the next book STAT, but when it comes to The Collectors’ Society I will take these books any which way I can get them! So if that means waiting months in between each release then so be it. You can’t rush perfection, and that’s exactly what this is.
