THE FORGOTTEN SEER

When Prince Linden dumps her at their own wedding festival, Tess Canyon is left utterly humiliated. In a moment of weakness, she betrays a tightly guarded secret to a charming enemy spy. Hours later, the Dominion of Glademont is thrown into chaos, and Tess must flee into the Hinge Forest, hunted and ashamed. There, with the help of a wild owl and a two-hundred-year-old bear, Tess unlocks the forgotten mysteries of her own people.

Deep in the woods, the spirit of a long-dead seer beckons the next Keeper of a fiery weapon. When war descends on Glademont, Tess must master that weapon’s power to save her homeland. But even if she can rescue her people, will they ever forgive her treason?
