Review: The Forgotten Mountain by Heather Lyons

Title: The Forgotten Mountain
By: Heather Lyons
Series: The Collectors' Society #3
My Copy: Ebook from Publisher
The BookWhisperer's Rating: 

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.

If you have been following my reviews on in this series, you will know that the first two books rocked and received our 5 out of 5 (might I add lovely) books icon as a rating.  So how did the third book fair?

The Forgotten Mountain is basically pure brilliance.  I have no idea how Lyons dreams up these amazing characters and worlds.  I would have never thought to take most of the classic books and spin their characters and plots around to build an entirely new and wondrous series. 

As always, this book, like the following two, is filled with every kind of situation that kept me on my toes and actually fist-pumping to myself while others were around.  I will also admit that once I received the ARC, I gave a few fist-pumps just because I was so excited.

The last that we know of, Finn and Victor are hurt and in another time line while Alice is back at the society and searching not only for Finn (and Victor) but some serious answers.  In this book, we the readers get some of those questions answered.  We learn how all of these villains are interconnected with each other and we find out just how far Alice and Finn are willing to go for each other.

Instead of going on and on about how much I loved this book and how much I love the series (because I think I made it very apparent in the first three paragraphs of this review,) I am just going to end my review soon and let you be the judge.  I have no doubt that you will feel the same way that I do: mad love for this series and Heather Lyons.

*Just a side note: the book covers are so beautiful and it is amazing how they capture that specific book’s plot.*
