About the Book:


Some oaths can never be broken…

The curse that haunted Lakesedge Estate has been broken, but at great cost. Violeta Graceling has sacrificed herself to end the Corruption. To escape death, Leta makes a desperate bargain with the Lord Under, one that sees her living at his side in the land of the dead.

But this world of souls and mist hides many secrets. And when Leta realizes she is still connected to Rowan by a tethering spell, she will risk everything— even her soul— to try and reach him.

Torn between power and love, life and death, Leta struggles to keep hold of her humanity as she falls further and further under the spell of the world Below… and the Lord Under.

5 Reasons to Read Forestfall

If you think Forestfall sounds like an interesting read to you but you need more persuasion, then check out my top five reasons to read this novel…

1. It’s gripping

The novel has an action-packed, fast-paced tone. This means you’ll find it difficult to put down! If you’re looking for a read that you can binge, then this is a great choice.

2. It has demisexual themes

Usually, with romance novels, the protagonist falls head over heels from first sight. This type of romance is not only tiresome but it’s also unrealistic. Demisexuals feel the need to form an emotional bond before engaging in physical intimacy, which is way more relatable and realistic. If you’re looking for a romance novel that you can actually relate to, then this is the book for you.

3. It’s the second book of a series

If you read the first book, Lakesedge, then you’re going to want to find out if Leta saves Rowan, and herself…right? 

4. The characters are relatable

Too often with fantasy novels, the characters are so far beyond our imaginations that it’s impossible to picture yourself in the story. But with Forestfall, the characters are imperfect, each with their own flaws and messes that the reader can empathize with.

5. You learn about Rowan’s POV

For fans of the first novel, you’ll remember it featured mostly Leta’s point of view. In Forestfall, you get to learn Rowan’s point of view and finally understand how he feels.
