Review: The Collectors’ Society by Heather Lyons
From the author of the Fate series and The Deep End of the Sea comes a fantastical romantic adventure that has Alice tumbling down the strangest rabbit hole yet.
After years in Wonderland, Alice has returned to England as an adult, desperate to reclaim sanity and control over her life. An enigmatic gentleman with an intriguing job offer too tempting to resist changes her plans for a calm existence, though. Soon, she’s whisked to New York and initiated into the Collectors’ Society, a secret organization whose members confirm that famous stories are anything but straightforward and that what she knows about the world is only a fraction of the truth.
It’s there she discovers villains are afoot—ones who want to shelve the lives of countless beings. Assigned to work with the mysterious and alluring Finn, Alice and the rest of the Collectors’ Society race against a doomsday clock in order to prevent further destruction . . . but will they make it before all their endings are erased?
This book is enchanting, captivating, unique, creative, and one of the BEST books I have ever had the privilege of reading! I wish I could give it more than 5 stars because it is an absolute must read. It is a unique twist on the classical boring fairy tales and brings to life your wildest book dreams. The story starts off with Alice in an asylum, working to regain her mental health as an adult. Then an man comes along and offers her a job and an escape and soon she finds herself surrounded by others who are like her, Finn, Victor, Wendy…you meet some interesting characters but my favorite is by far Finn!
The goal of The Collectors’ Society is to preserve these fairy tale characters by finding the catalyst in the stories. There are villains about who are trying to destroy them and wipe out these characters. It is a unique tale, that will leave you breathe-less, enthralled and begging for more. If you thought you knew classic fairy tales, think again! Heather Lyons has truly created an exquisite masterpiece and I cannot wait for the next installment.
