A boy mired in guilt is determined to never fail his family or himself again as he heads into the world of the unknown on a quest to save his kidnapped sister. Armed with his tracking skills and willing to make the ultimate sacrifice, Avikar and his best friend discover Jeslyn has been taken by the lord of Daath, a place no one has seen, shrouded in mystery and long thought to be a part of fairytales and myths. Daath is much more than a make believe land of magic, and its people are not human. Was it Jeslyn’s beauty or her innocence that enthralled Lucino almost as strongly as he magically enthralled her? What he wants from her wasn’t meant to be love, it was her aura to feed his power, but has the prey captured the hunter? Time is running out as Jeslyn falls deeper under Lucino’s spell as two brave boys race against the clock to face an enemy far superior in all ways. How do you prepare for the unknown? Will the human will to survive be enough or will the superior abilities of this shapeshifting creature doom Avikar to fail again? If he dies trying to save his sister, will he be seen as a failure or a hero? Broken Forest by Eliza Tilton is a fairly light fantasy, perfect for all ages to be mesmerized by as we hear the POVs of Avikar, Jeslyn and Lucino in a brilliant move by Ms. Tilton that she pulled off perfectly. It isn’t often that one is allowed into the mind of the villain of a story, because who would think they have feelings? Eliza Tilton has built a world that feels real, that one can almost step right into and become part of the story. She carefully takes her time to build up steam as the story unfolds. Characters come to life and their world breathes right along with them. Process her words and notice how they are replaced with mental images as the world around you begins to fade away, then hang on tight because after that it is a maze of epic emotional proportions! I received this copy from Eliza Tilton in exchange for my honest review.

4.5 Stars First off I loved the cover! It was original and not made up from stock photos that everyone else is using. This is my first book read by Eliza and I really enjoyed her style and writing abilities. I am a big fan of multiple POV’s and Eliza did an amazing job with the three main characters and their personalities. I was able to read through the chapters with ease not having to go back and see who it was that was talking . This story is full of action, determination, heart, beauty depth and warmth. The world that Eliza describes is colorful and full of many creatures of folk lore, a good thing in a fantasy book! I like her description of Daath as a 13 country that was hidden from the other countries and only thought of as a mythical place. This place is run by Lucian the villain and his people in the story. The main character is Avikar a 17 year old boy that feels like a failure for not being able to save his younger brother and accepts his life as a stable boy to try to forget his failure. When his sister Jeslyn is kidnapped and taken by the evil Lucian a non human shape shifter. He and his best friend Derrick set out to find her and bring her home. But Avikar must battle more than Lucian he must battle his inner demons to prove to himself that he has what it takes to be a warrior.
