Forestium by Christopher D. Morgan (Portallas #1)

Forestium (Portallas #1)Christopher D. Morgan takes us on a journey into a world long filled with wars, death, and soldiers that have never returned. Families are left behind missing a piece of their hearts. Joshua’s heart tells him his father, who left long ago and never returned is alive. As a young man, he sets out on a quest to either find his father, find out what happened to him or die trying. By his side is his best friend and a newly found creature long thought killed off through the slaughter of the dark forces of the Goat, evil personified. Magical portals may reveal the lost and long thought dead, but to open them, magical orbs must be procured. Follow the journey of this ragtag group as they add a beautiful and talented teen off on her own guest for knowledge. Their journey will teach them about life, about living in a dangerous world, about survival and especially learning to trust another in matters of life, death and the heart.

Forestium is a beautifully written tale that introduces us to a strange new world, its many races, feats of magic and the power of love and truth. Christopher D. Morgan has done a fabulous job of creating scenes that come to life where the sense of action and the emotional entanglements feel real. With great dialogue, a smorgasbord of characters and evil always lurking in the shadows, this fantasy is easy to fall into and hard to leave! A great start to a new YA fantasy series!

I received an ARC edition in exchange for my honest review.
