Can’t Wait Wednesday: Forest of Souls



Forest of Souls by Lori M. Lee

Danger lurks within the roots of Forest of Souls, an epic, unrelenting tale of destiny and sisterhood, perfect for fans of Naomi Novik and Susan Dennard.

Sirscha Ashwyn comes from nothing, but she’s intent on becoming something. After years of training to become the queen’s next royal spy, her plans are derailed when shamans attack and kill her best friend Saengo.

And then Sirscha, somehow, restores Saengo to life.

Unveiled as the first soulguide in living memory, Sirscha is summoned to the domain of the Spider King. For centuries, he has used his influence over the Dead Wood—an ancient forest possessed by souls—to enforce peace between the kingdoms. Now, with the trees growing wild and untamed, only a soulguide can restrain them. As war looms, Sirscha must master her newly awakened abilities before the trees shatter the brittle peace, or worse, claim Saengo, the friend she would die for.



Okay, there is a lot to be excited about for this one, and I don’t even know where to begin. Sisterhood? Spider King? Soulguides? Royal spies? THE TREES??? Everything is working together to make this book sound like an amazing read. I managed to scoop up an e-ARC on this one, and only all the other books I have to read before the summer are getting in between me and devouring this whole.




Moana certainly knows about having a destiny thought out and going out on our own path. I think Moana would love to see Sirscha’s journey and seeing just how far she’ll go.


What do you think? Is this on your book TBR as well?
