Read on Amazon

Just published! Book 1 in the Maledorian Chronicles fantasy series, Lord of the Fallen, is now available on Amazon!

Here is an overview:

"Lady Elendria witnesses the murder of a boy and discovers it is connected to a cult sweeping the city of Criswall. The cult worships Ba’al, an ancient god named the Lord of the Fallen by the city’s poorest. The cult aims to overthrow the Kingdom of Mar Thagroth and bring back an ancient empire ruled by sorcerers.

Forced to leave her childhood home a year ago, Elendria has adjusted to college life filled with people she once considered enemies. She is thrust into the court of King Galeran and attracts the attention of Prince Jondran, the king’s grandson. She is torn between her hatred of the kingdom and her growing interest in the young prince.

While investigating the boy’s murder, she discovers a dark secret about her father. Set amidst a city rife with cultists and a class war, Elendria must choose between family and her new friends. But she soon realizes the choice is really between doing what is right and pursuing revenge."

"Forrester's novel thoroughly blends the fantastical and the contemporary... There's a notable class struggle theme that's fortunately never heavy-handed... Supporting characters are equally noteworthy." -- Kirkus Reviews

Sun Mage, Blacklight Chronicles Book 2

Introducing the second book in the Blacklight Chronicles, SUN MAGE! The book is available right now on Amazon Kindle. After over three years of writing and too many revisions to count, my second novel is complete.

Praise for Sun Mage:

"Sun Mage... was AWESOME! The fast pace for this book, like the first one, makes it a great read for pre-teens, teens and adults...  I literally could not put Sun Mage down... I give this book 5 Ravens and now I am DYING to read the next one. I anxiously await its arrival."
--Great Minds Literary Community

Here is a short overview of the book:

Far out to sea, a mysterious island holds the ancient city of Darkov. The immortal sorcerer Aurellia awaits the arrival of Talis and Mara. The Temple of the Sun lures both dark and light forces to discover its power.

Talis and Mara will have to use their wits to escape slavery and trek out into the jungle. Foul fields of undead will trap them. Twin ancient cities, one of light and one of darkness, one ruined and one hideous in its power. Only one map can guide them.

But can they bear to enter the land of the dead? To face the God of the Underworld himself? If they fail, their family and city will fall to the Jiserians. And the world itself will slip into darkness. Unless Talis can first unlock the power of light magic.
