About this ebook

Across the United States, children are vanishing. Only this time, faeries may not be to blame …

Dante, Regent of the fae's Rogue Court, has been receiving disturbing reports. Human children are manifesting magical powers in record numbers. Shunned and forgotten, they live on the streets in ragtag groups with the already-booming population of homeless changelings. But the streets aren't a haven; someone, or something, is hunting these children down.

Wraith, a teenage spell slinger, has no home, no family, and no real memories of her past. She and her friends SK, Fritz, and Shadow are constantly on the run, fleeing from a dark and unknown enemy. But when her companions are taken by "the snatchers," Wraith is their only hope. Her journey to find them will test the limits of her magic—and her trust. A dark force is on the rise, and it could spell the end of our world as we know it.

Excellent storytelling about an ancient magic in modern times. I read this after i finished *The Stolen* by the same author. I can't wait to see what comes next. I do recommend that a better editor be employed, i found a number of wrong words in the second book. Usually spelled correctly but lacking a prefix and/or suffix to convey its proper meaning in context.

I first read The Stolen, then The Forgotten. I like reading stories about the fae, mages, and magic. I have read so many over the decades that it is hard to find an angle, a perspective, that is novel. These two books are unique and good stories. Even though I had read The Stolen first, I was quite lost when I first started The Forgotten. But I kept going. Very interesting world here. Read and get lost in it for awhile ... recommended.

About the author

Bishop O'Connell is a consultant, writer, blogger, lover of kilts and beer, as well as a member of the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America. Born in Naples Italy, while his father was stationed in Sardinia, Bishop grew up in San Diego, CA where he fell in love with the ocean and fish tacos. While wandering the country for work and school (absolutely not because he was in hiding from mind controlling bunnies), he experienced autumn in New England. Soon after, he settled in Manchester, NH, where he collects swords, drinks, writes, revels in his immortality as a critically acclaimed "visionary" of the urban fantasy genre, and is regularly chastised for making up things for his bio. He can also be found online at A Quiet Pint (aquietpint.com), where he muses philosophical on the life, the universe, and everything, as well as various aspects of writing and the road to getting published.
