The Forgotten Mountain - cover

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.



It just keeps getting better! This entire series just keeps getting better. The Collectors’ Society series is a delightful, fanciful, adventure-filled, epic journey. Alice’s adventures span centuries, continents and volume after volume of classic literature. Each quest is more powerful, exciting and surprising than the last.

The Collectors’ Society series follows Alice “after the Wonderland years” as she finds her place within The Collectors’ Society – saving worlds, taking on bad guys and finding true love. That quest for true love will take Alice and her fellow agents down some pretty scary paths in The Forgotten Mountain. Alice finds that there are countless individuals and forces working tirelessly to disrupt, hunt, and extinguish Timelines. It will be up to Alice and the other members of The Collectors’ Society to save these lives.

The Forgotten Mountain is a page-turner! I flew through the story from one crazy, legendary mission to another. One of the things I love most about Heather Lyons’ writing is her consistency. From book to book and scenario to scenario, the characters she develops grow and change as the story dictates but they stay so true to the essence of who they are. None proves this better than Alice. Alice is my absolute favorite heroine in any book series. Ever. Alice comes out swinging in The Forgotten Mountain. She is a woman on a mission to save the man that she loves. Alice is the person that you want in your corner fighting beside you and fighting for you.

The Forgotten Mountain is like a fairy tale within a fairy tale. Heather Lyons builds worlds and fantasies full of rich characters and perilous scenes. She crafts sentences that are absolutely lovely and so wonderful to read that I highlight paragraph after paragraph.

I loved this book. I didn’t want it to end and I’ll be waiting impatiently for the fourth and final book in this saga. While we wait, you can check out the Recruit Tour to make a list for prospective Agents from some really clever bloggers. AND, if you’re clamoring to get an image in your head for the characters, check out the Character Cards on Heather’s blog. (I may or may not have an urge to lick the A.D.) 😉 If you haven’t read any of these books yet – start immediately and then come back and dish with me when you’re done!

The Forgotten Mountain - Off With Their Heads



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.

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