Sneaking in a post before the madness begins! This weekend began with dropping off the dogs for the weekend, working, and then getting together for dinner to plan our upcoming engagement shower! Today the weekend continues. This afternoon is the first birthday party for my soon-to-be cousin followed by my other cousin’s wedding. It’s gonna be a busy one!
Thanks to Inkshares for the free advanced copy in exchange for my hones review.
THE PHANTOM FOREST – Liz Kerin (Releasing July 16th, 2019)
Anyone else loving this book cover? I hope this sets the tone for the book!
Here’s the synopsis:
Every tree in the sacred Forest of Laida houses a soul. Though each of those souls will return to the mortal world for many future lives, not all of them deserve to.
Seycia’s father told her this story as a child — a story of the most holy place in the Underworld, The Forest of Laida, where all souls go to rest before embarking on a new life. But Seycia’s father is dead now, and his killer has put a target on her back.
After being chosen for her village’s human sacrifice ritual, Seycia is transported to the Underworld and must join forces with Haben, the demon to whom she was sacrificed, to protect the family she left behind from beyond the grave. In this story of love, survival, and what it means to be human, Seycia and Haben discover that the Underworld is riddled with secrets that can only be unlocked through complete trust and devotion, not only to their mission, but also to one another.
