My Review
Katie M. John's "The Forest of Adventures" is the first book, in her 'Knight Trilogy' series, and it is not a book that disappoints. Although based in a magical realm, deep within the dense and dark foliage of an enchanting forest, the novel still remains deeply rooted in reality, and is full of characters that are real and believable.

Mina Singer is happily going about her life, with a steady and loving boyfriend in Sam, and a wonderful group of friends. And then Blake appears on her horizon, and instantly, she feels an attraction and familiarity with him that she cannot shake off. Following her gut, she begins getting close to Blake, and realizes that all is not as it seems in Blake's life. Before she can stop it from happening, tragedy strikes, sending Mina and Blake's life into upheaval. Will their romance stand the test? How will Mina deal with the surprising turn of events in her life?

"The Forest of Adventures" is a gripping read, that keeps you turning the pages, all the while maintaining the tense and electrically charged atmosphere. I must admit, that although Vampires and Werewolves are dark and sexy, the thought of of an Arthurian Knight is far more sexy. There is just something so very chivalrous and selfless about Blake's character, one can't help but be attracted to him. The author has a beautiful way of describing the forest, and the book has a few action-packed battles that will have the reader's heartbeat rising in anticipation. But the book balances the roughness of battle, with the sweetness of romance - and it is this blend that makes this book such an enjoyable read. If you're a fan of fantasy-romances, I'd definitely recommend you read this book!
