Book Review – Forestium

Forestium book coverForestium by Christopher D. Morgan

Joshua, a young Woodsman, from the village of Morelle, goes in search of his missing father and discovers a much deeper destiny. He and his companions must find three magical orbs to open the Portallas, the gateway between worlds before the evil creature, the Goat, finds them. This self-published fantasy novel was professionally edited which is always a huge plus for me, however, the writing still seems underdeveloped. The characters and the story are lacking complexity and final polish. Also, while I appreciate a quickly moving plot, the character development felt rushed and unbelievable. The protagonist and his love interest fell deeply in love very quickly without any substantial descriptions of how their feelings evolved. I would have liked more depth in this novel given the story’s potential.

*Disclosure: I was provided a free copy of this novel with a request for an honest review.*
