Following the major cliffhanger at the end of The Hidden Library I cannot tell you how desperate I was for this book. Heather does a fantastic job of recapping the previous events to refresh the memory within the first few chapters. The action is high-octane all the way through while simultaneously pulling all the plot threads together.
As soon as one puzzle piece is solved another takes its place making the storyline equally tantalising and tormenting. There are constant revelations surrounding some of the major players within The Collectors Society; I have to say I am in utter awe of how Heather Lyon's mind works, twisting the numerous tales into the narrative ingeniously.
I adore how the narrative showed clearly that no two readers will take away the same thing when they read the same book (you get what I mean RIGHT?)
I have to mention the beautiful vocabulary used within this series, it is a joy to read and adds to the imagery evoked.
With each book in this series I fall deeper in love with the characters especially Finn, Alice and Jace.Read more ›
Alice's partner/ lover/ best- mate Finn has gone missing, her wrath knows no bounds as she tears through the lies of the enemies. In this book, Alice, Mary and A.D works hard to find their missing comrades, No stone left unturned, no enemies left standing. This version of Alice is the one that I like most, because for once, a girl is not afraid to get her hands dirty to keep the ones she loves.
While some might find her bloodthirstiness (and her guard spider) a bit hard to swallow, but I like heroines that are not afraid to show their darker side, or their determination to destroy everything until she gets her way, sort of like an anti- hero, because she never called herself a hero anyway.
Halfway through the story Alice finds what she is looking for, or part of it anyway. New allies, new mission and together with Mary her unlikely partner, they managed to find new answers to the question of: Who is Gabe Lygari...
So this plot is rapidly turning into a messy situation where readers have more questions and answers: who is the enemy? Is the Librarian good or bad? Who might turn up in book four,my bet is someone nasty, as more villains are turning up where they are not supposed to be.
Will Alice get her happy ending?
If you love books, adventure, mystery, magic and a bit of madness, this is for you. It has heroic heroes, villainous villains and of course a healthy mix of romance and action.
I laughed and cried. Believe me when you finish The Forgotten Mountain you will want the next book. I need it already.
As always Thank you Heather for your wonderful characters and your fantastic story, you are truly a genius. I don't think I will be able to see any of these characters in the same light again.

That is exactly how I felt when I finished this book. I don't even know where to begin.
This book here, The Forgotten Mountain is the reason why I started this series. I came across the book cover and immediately fell in love with it. I was completely mesmerized by it. Then I read the premise for the Collector's Society and I couldn't help myself. I read and read until I couldn't stop. I fell in love with it all.
The book picks up right where The Hidden Library left off. And for that, I am thankful. Like the previous books, this one does not disappoint. There is definitely action from the very beginning.
I’ve had a flutter of butterflies that have taken residence within me since I started reading this book. The more I read, the more intense they felt. There were times when I felt like I was going to burst because of the intensity or suspense of the book. And that there is exactly what I look for in a book. Something that I can lose myself in. Something that can bring me to the edge of my seat and keep me wondering and hoping.
I have to say, Heather has a gift; to tell a tale and twist many into one and still have a good outcome. I loved that we got to know the A.D. A LOT more! There is more to him than just being a Master Thief. There are more sides to him that Alice certainly noticed, although she didn’t admit to anyone. But she noticed, and coming from The Queen of Diamonds, that’s a lot to say.
I absolutely loved Alice. Her attitude and the drive that she had to overcome the trials that they were presented with. I loved that she was able to develop and cultivate her relationship with Mary. I loved that they were both there for each other, and that they never gave up. They were both strong female characters that wouldn’t take no for an answer.
The relationship between Alice and Finn was as good as or even better than the previous books. They both knew what they wanted and were willing to do anything for the other.
"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."
There were moments that I wanted to cry because of what they were enduring as a couple. They had already been through so much, how either of them could handle more was beyond me. But they did. Because they had something that not many experience in their lives…
"True love encourages you to live."
I do have to say, that the last chapter in this book gave me severe anxiety. So much so that I was in tears. I felt like I couldn’t breathe because of what was going on. I thought I was going mad/insane. I wanted to reach right into my iPad and pluck her out and set her straight.
I enjoyed every bit of this book. From the main characters, to the minor ones. And the turn of events with everything that was going on and the attacks on the society. I seriously can’t wait for the next book to be released. This has turned out to be one of my favorite series. Thank you Heather for your gift, and for your willingness to share with us - your readers.
“But time is not always a generous mistress. Time allows slow changes, the warping of beliefs based upon observations both common and uncommon.”
Heather Lyons once again takes beloved characters of stories past and adds her own spin to them while still maintaining a level of authenticity. The highlight for me though was getting to really see a different side of all her characters in the third book. With the fates of their men unknown, Alice and Mary really have to become even stronger than readers have previously experienced. Though we saw pieces and knew Alice's inclinations, it shone so much more prominently in The Forgotten Mountain. If you're a fan of Alice, I have no doubts you will love her more by novel's end! While I had appreciated all the characters in the first two books, different attributions appear and relationships are formed, that made me adore them even more.
“Make no mistake about it: we are at war. We fight not only for ourselves, but for those who will never meet us, who will never know our names. I am asking much of you all. When you joined the Collectors’ Society, you probably could not fathom that someday you would be asked to put your life on the line for those you will never know.”
As we're brought further into the mystery of what has happened, I find myself yearning more and more to never escape this adult fantasy series. The Forgotten Mountain is action-packed with equal parts of suspense and romance. Lyons enchants in both an exciting and nostalgic manner. Once you pick it up, prepare to lose several hours of time because the last thing you'll want to do is put it down.
“Madness – that old, dear friend of mine – has come home for a visit. And I welcome its return with open arms.”
I have been so strongly pulled into this fantasy world that Heather Lyons has created. The characters are nefarious and complicated, mysterious and nostalgic. The crossover between stories readers have come to love is absolute brilliance. Not to mention, the writing style of Lyons is unpredictable and mesmerizing. What she has done is so inventive and works perfectly for the ideas she spins with these personalities. If you haven’t started this series yet, you are seriously missing it out. The Forgotten Mountain is the best yet, and I have no doubt that the series will go out with a bang in the next book!
“Madness—that old, dear friend of mine—has come home for a visit. And I welcome its return with open arms.”
In this third installment in The Collector's Society series, Alice of Wonderland must act fast in order to save those closest to her. Things become more dangerous as the members of the society uncover more truths, and unexpected information comes forth about those who have acted against them and seek to do more harm.
It's up to Alice and her people to find more answers and to save timelines in danger of being destroyed. Though the odds are against them, the fight has become personal and Alice will stop at nothing to keep those she cares about safe and unharmed.
“To follow blindly is to yield possession of your own compass.”
This is such a special and creative series, I cannot think of anything else out there like it! I love Lyon's interpretations of characters and stories from classic novels that we are already familiar with. I love the idea that characters have a hidden story outside that which we see, a very unique retelling/new creation.
In this book we got lots more answers as to who was deleting the timelines and how, now we just need the why. Whenever I read this series I always find myself wanting to run off and read or reread classic stories mentioned within. My favorite character is Grimsdyke the spider; if he wasn't a spider I would hug the crap out of that little creature. If only we could all have a cool spider assassin to keep us company wherever we went.
Action packed and thrilling from the very first page, this is a series you cannot miss out on! The ending was crazy! I cannot wait to read the next book.
“If this isn't a fairy tale, then I don't know what else to call it.”
There are a number of typos. Maybe because we weren't in Wonderland I noticed them more? Even with incorrect she/he or no attribution to dialogue--It wasn't too hard to suss out who was talking, or what I think the author intended.
