Publisher’s Comments:
The final installment of Sara Harvey’s steampunk trilogy finds Portia Gyony trapped in a circus cage. Her ghostly lover, Imogen, has been resurrected to corporeal form, but a happy reunion must wait. Dark forces still lurk in the land of the dead, and they are bent on stealing the energies of the living to power a machine that will break the barriers between the realms of the living and the shadowlands beyond. This time, Portia may not have the full support of the Primacy behind her as she battles to save humankind from powers beyond the understanding of mortal man.

Deceit and disaster abound, bringing Portia and Imogen closer to each other and to doom than ever before. Old allies and old enemies converge in this final chapter of the nephilim’s power struggle over the world.

Hello Ghouls and Boils,

Super Minion Heather Royston is here to share her thoughts on “The Tower of the Forgotten”, the final book in a very intriguing trilogy. But I won’t keep you waiting. Enjoy, my fiends!

Abstrusely,
Sarah L. Covert

The Tower of the Forgotten is the final installment in Sara M Harvey‘s Nephilim trilogy. The first two, The Convent of the Pure and The Labyrinth of the Dead each took me far too long to read, having a lack of time and energy. So when I found myself with a very rare period of time alone I snatched this up and read the whole thing like it was going to dissolve in my hands.

It picks up sometime after the events of The Labyrinth of the Dead, Portia is captured and on display as a curiosity in a circus. She endures this as best she can, knowing that eventually someone will come for her. And they do, friends and foe alike though mostly unbeknownst to her. The action happens quickly thereafter, and there is a lot of action here folks. Battle after battle after strangely peaceful scene then back to battle. The war for humanity, living and dead, is on and Portia and her friends are at its heart.

This book managed to incorporate elements of just about every genre out there. There’s adventure, horror, fantasy, romance, mythology, and even a little science fiction. And it’s done well.

Final Thoughts:
Each piece is carefully constructed and combined, making the whole story like one of those weird foods that sound so bizzare but taste so good. Like a bacon cupcake, or so I imagine. The first taste leaves you intrigued and each bite thereafter takes you deeper into a world you never imagined could exist but yet here it is, tangible and ready for further exploration. Much like said cupcake, I finished The Tower of the Forgotten in record time and it left me wanting more. I give this book 5 out of 5 tentacles and beg Sara M. Harvey to write more of this world and it’s inhabitants. I’m feeling peckish.

Heather Royston, Minion (Reviewer)
