Never go into the forest alone. There are things that dwell within the woods. Things that came with the mist even as forests expanded or appeared where none before had been. Things that terrorize humanity and worse if rumor was to be accounted…people disappeared into the woods.
Humanity has done its best to limp along after the world went to hell. They hunted and tended the fields as they attempted to live the best lives with what they had. They wanted to pretend that everything was fine while avoiding the terror of the forest. Diana lived in a state of uneasy peace with the woods near her home until the same forest betrayed her and shifted her between worlds. There something hunts and devours men. And worse, it has intruded into the mortal world. Caught in a web of fate, Diana has no escape from the terror of her destiny awaiting her.
Silvas is the lucumo silvani and high king of the Eternal Forest. When he is alerted to the rise of a dangerous monster, one of the Tainted Ones half remembered in ancient myths, he is forced to take up the burden of harnessing death itself to protect both worlds of humanity and the denizens of the Eternal Forest. Betrayed once by the promise of love, he has no interest in forming a permanent bond with a human whose life-thread is woven into the upcoming events by the Fates. A role that is unclear even to the oracle. Yet as they face the darkness together, will he forge an alliance of flesh, blood and love with the one being who could destroy him?

REVIEW BY NANCY
This book reads like a saga. Get comfy because it will take you on quite a journey. Silvas is the king of the Eternal Forest. And when Diana wanders into his forest she will never return home as the same person. Cacus, and ancient evil, is destroying everything and Silvas’ fate is entwined with Diana’s. Along the way they journey to recover the sword of Nocis which they need to conquer Cacus. You’ll meet my favorite troll, Raskyuil, and get a ride on some awesome crocotta. Diana doesn’t expect to come to love her captor, but that’s just what happens along the way. I don’t want to give anything away, but I will say that there’s so much more to this story than I imagined at the beginning. Very enjoyable read. Sanders has fashioned a fabulous tale in Forest of Spirits! 4 stars!
