Fallenwood

February 12, 2015 Author: lesliesoule

Welcome to Fallenwood, where your dreams and nightmares are only a portal away!

Follow the journey of 23-year-old Ash Kensington, enveloped in grief, who runs away to a portal in the woods and finds her way into a magical realm known as Terra Illumina, or Fallenwood, to the locals.

The Fallenwood Chronicles is a 4-part series published by Melange Books.

The world of Fallenwood is populated with magical creatures, and filled with danger and adventure. Ash must find a way to confront the dark lord Malegaunt, who lurks in his tower, on an island in the Acerbus Sea. But will she?

Fallenwood: Ashley Kensington is a girl overwhelmed – 23 and in college, she works an unforgiving retail job, still grieves over the loss of her stepfather to circumstances beyond her control, and despairs over her mother’s heartlessness.

With self-doubt creeping in, and a sense that a bright future is beyond her reach, she runs away from it all and finds her way to a magical realm known as Fallenwood, a place that for all its charms, is no less plagued by problems of its own.

Nevertheless, she meets up with friends like the mysterious sorcerer Will Everett, the talking cat Greymalkin, and the court jester Terces Solario, who show her the way down a path that can only lead to trouble, but with the promise of a bright future lurking on the horizon.

Review!

Morgan K. Wyatt (Writer Wonderland): “Reading Forgetting Fallenwood was such an unadulterated pleasure. The contrast between her old life and new life was striking. The creation of suspense, doubt, and anticipation created a heady combination that kept me turning pages. I appreciate a writer who considers the placement of each word, the construction of each setting, and the hidden motives of each character. Bravo, Ms. Soule, you have achieved much with Forgetting Fallenwood. I can’t wait to read the entire series.”
