Title: The Broken Forest
Author Name: Megan Derr
Publication Date & Length: March 18th, 2015 – 60 pages
When women and children begin to vanish, the people of Edge village summon a Huntress. Though she is long due for a break and exhausted from her previous assignment, Adamina accepts the assignment and heads for Edge. But when she arrives, the simple assignment she anticipated proves instead to be complicated—complicated enough she must consult with a witch. A beautiful, compelling witch that makes Adamina sharply aware of her own lonely life, and tempts her to make it less lonely.
A dark but very enjoyable mystic tale. Easily readable but very engrossing. The use of imagery by the author brings this novel to life. From the dark foreboding forest to the challenges being faced by the two main characters the description make you feel as if you are there.
Another strength of this author is the ease and the almost insignificance of one of the leads being trans gendered. A very refreshing acceptance.
A novel to be enjoyed by all who believe in magic, of good overcoming evil, strength of character and those who never stop believing in myths and legends.
