Forsyth Turn has finally become a hero—however reluctantly. But now that Lucy Piper has married him and they’ve started a family in her world, his adventuring days are behind him. Yet not all is as it should be. Beloved novels are disappearing at an alarming rate, not just from the minds of readers like Pip, but from bookshelves as well. Almost as if they had never been. Almost like magic.

Forsyth fears that it is his fault—that Pip’s childhood tales are vanishing because he, a book character, has escaped his pages. But when he and Pip are sucked back into The Tales of Kintyre Turn against their will, they realize that something much more deadly and dire is happening. The stories are vanishing from Forsyth’s world too. So Forsyth sets out on a desperate journey across Hain to discover how, and why, the stories are disappearing… before their own world vanishes forever.

In this clever follow-up to The Untold Tale, The Forgotten Tale questions what it means to create a legacy, and what we owe to those who come after us. 

 The Forgotten Tale by J.M. Frey (The Accidental Turn, #2)

The Forgotten Tale (The Accidental Turn, #2)Have you ever thought about your book friends coming to life? What would the world be like if some of our favorite characters walked our streets? Would they possess their same traits? What if they met their creator? What if they weren’t happy with how their creator handled their story? Would the balance of the universe, history and the world of literature be tilted or skewed? Forsyth Turn, a secondary character in The Tales of Kintyre Turn by author Elgar Reed has outgrown the character he was created to be. Like father and son, his relationship with Elgar is one of misunderstanding, lack of trust and maybe a healthy dose of resentment and fear.

Now a father and husband, Forsyth is the first to notice that great literary classics of fantasy are suddenly disappearing from history, but how and why? Is it magic or something far more sinister? There may be only one way to find the truth and it involves returning to the fantasy world he came from, willingly or not.

Is the legacy that books have left for us being destroyed? What will stop the unraveling of some of the greatest tales ever told? If Forsyth’s tale is lost, what will it mean for him?

Follow Pip, Forsyth and their beautiful little girl as they travel to places far and wide in the world of Hain before all stories from everywhere vanish and Forsyth’s world will disappear.

Quirky characters, hidden secrets, fascinating twists and the amazing imagination of author J.M. Frey bring THE FORGOTTEN TALE to life, but for how long? A strong and snarky heroine, a character who actually became a true hero and a race for survival against an unknown destroyer, my fingers are crossed that they will succeed or I’ll never be able read this well-told tale or write this review!

I received an ARC edition from J.M. Frey in exchange for my honest review.
