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.

My Review

“Not all fairy tales have happy endings, this much is true. There are times when the innocent suffer, the good are defeated, and evil and wickedness reign supreme. I refuse to allow such an ending to this fairy tale, or my own. I cannot fail in this quest. None of us can.”

Once again, Heather Lyons has managed to leave me speechless. I am sitting here, struggling to put my thoughts and emotions into words. This is one of those books that I knew when I got it in my hands that it was going to be EPIC! And The Forgotten Mountain does not disappoint. To say my mind has been blown is a complete understatement…..

The Forgotten Mountain picks up right where The Hidden Library left off. The quest to find their loved ones is critical. Finding the evil mastermind who is destroying the timelines before it’s too late, is of the up-most importance. Alice will stop at nothing to find the answers she seeks. She must trust in her self and what her instincts tell her.  “Hear me now: I am coming for you. If you think I will not hunt you down and extract payment for your sins, then you don’t know my story well enough.” The wind howls incoherently around me. “Your head,” I shout, my voice is loud and clear in the insanity of the crumbling cave, “IS MINE!”  As the mystery slowly unravels, unbelievable truths will be discovered, questions will be answered. Just when I think I’ve figured things out, Heather Lyons throws in a twist that has me questioning everything that I thought I knew.

The Forgotten Mountain was a fantastic read. The writing so unique, so captivating. I literally felt like I was right there in the story with these characters. I got lost in the words and the world that Heather Lyons created. I didn’t want to put it down. I was on pins and needles waiting to see what would happen next. There were so many twists and turns. Nothing and no one was safe.

The Forgotten Mountain introduced a lot of new characters and timelines. I loved the way that Heather Lyons flawlessly connected the stories together. I felt that the story was perfectly paced. It was full of action, suspense, romance, and adventure. There was never a dull moment.

Finn and Alice…I have been in love with those two for such a long time and they do not disappoint. Their love, connection and strength are so strong. “Hold on, love. Even if it requires me moving heaven and earth, I will find a way to fix this. All I ask of you is to hold on.” “Finn is my family. He is my heart, my north star.” “We are partners. We are equals. We are, as he is so often to remind me, binaries of the very best kind.” -These quotes are the perfect representation of their love for one another. And you know what they say, true love is the most powerful of all love.

The end….I have no words. Seriously. My mind has been blown. Did this really just happen? Has this been the truth all along? Is this just twist in the Pied Pipers game? I have so many more questions and I can not wait to get my answers.

The Forgotten Mountain takes you on such an incredible journey. You will be captivated from start to finish. The writing and storytelling is just brilliant. Honestly, there aren’t enough words. I can not recommend this book/this series enough. I am so excited to see how everything will come together in the end!

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.

Review: On My Knees (Stark International Trilogy #2) by J. Kenner

Posted on

onmykneesJackson Steele and Sylvia Brooks continue to thrill in the second novel of a scintillating, emotionally charged new trilogy that returns to the world of J. Kenner’s beloved Stark novels: Release Me, Claim Me, and Complete Me.

I never thought I’d lose control, but his desire took me right to the edge.

Powerful, ambitious, and devastatingly sexy, Jackson Steele was unlike any other man I’d ever known. He went after what he wanted with his whole mind, body, and soul—and I was the woman in his sights. One touch and I surrendered, one night together and I was undone.
Jackson and I had secrets, dark pieces of our pasts that threatened to swallow us both. We couldn’t outrun our demons, or the people trying to tear us apart. But in our passion we found salvation, and in each other’s arms we found release.
I was scared to trust Jackson fully, to finally let go. Yet no matter the dangers that lay ahead, I knew I was his—and now that we’ve laid claim, there’s no more holding back.
On My Knees is intended for mature audiences.


My Review

“It’s as if he needs to consume me, to prove to himself that I’m real and that I’m here and that no matter what, I’m not going anywhere.”

Wow! What a great ride! On My Knees picks up right where Say My Name left off. And let me tell you there is never a dull moment. Just when you think you’ve got a handle on things and things are going to be smooth, a nice little curve ball gets thrown at you and all you can do is brace your self for the ride……

After the way things ended with Say My Name, I just had to know more, what would happen next for Jackson and Sylvia? And this book does not disappoint. I was pulled into the story from the very first page. I was completely captivated and unable to stop reading. I fell more in love with Sylvia and Jackson, if that was even possible. Sylvia and Jackson make such a great team. Their connection so deep, so real. They can calm each other with just one look and their ability to understand each other, without fear of judgement is just amazing. I loved watching their relationship move forward and seeing them trying to navigate all the obstacles that life kept throwing at them. And boy did life throw some curve balls at them.

Jackson and Sylvia’s bond was really tested in On My Knees. Lies, Secrets, and Blackmail is enough to rock even the strongest of relationships. But, no matter what was thrown at the two of them, no matter how hurt they may have been in the moment, Jackson and Sylvia were both very determined. They weren’t going to give up on each other without one heck of a fight.

To say I enjoyed On My Knees would be a total understatement. I was hooked on Jackson and Sylvia’s story and couldn’t wait to find out what would happen next. On My Knees is sexy, captivating, HOT, and full of some great twists. Twists that will surprise you and have you asking questions. And the end………You know me, I always have to warn you when there is a cliffhanger…..And this is a good one! I was totally having one of those, things are too good to be true moments and then BOOM! The carpet was pulled out from under me. I can not wait to get my hands on the final book and see how it will all play out!
