The Forgotten Ones
The Danaan Trilogy – Book One
Brandee’s Review:Laura had me at the cover….ok and then the blurb….then the Teaser she posted of the first couple chapters…. I was surprisingly hooked and could not wait to read this. I used to be a big fantasy/paranormal reader and have recently gotten away from it a bit since gears are being changed a lot recently and these books are not as “common” as they once were.When I say paranormal, I do not solely mean vampires/werewolves/ghosts….my definition of the genre is much more broad and includes anything that is not 100% “real”, guardians/protectors, fae, chosen, angels/devils, vampires, shapeshifters/werevolves, ghosts, seers, time-travel, etc. Not saying that I do not believe in the possibility of some of these types of paranormals being “real”…..I am open-minded LOL (or a dreamer….you can conclude which one).The book is not long, but the story was told completely and I did not feel slighted. This book is beautifully written, which made it so easy to read. I did have to pay closer attention when it got to more detailed descriptions of “the fantasy aspect” of the story, but that is only because I am not as familiar with this type of “fantasy/paranormal”. My ONLY complaint is the ending….there was not a cliffhanger, but more of a “to be continued……” type of ending, and I wanted MORE…right then….BUT hey that is the game right?!? …..hook….line…sinker! Good job Laura, I am hooked and now anxiously awaiting book #2! Can’t wait to see where Laura will go next with this series!If you are a lover of fantasy and romance or want to get away from “real” for a little while, I highly recommend this debut story from Laura Howard.

Nancy Drew, Sweet Valley High and other girly novels were routinely devoured in single sittings. Books took a backseat to diapers when she had her first child. It wasn’t until the release of a little novel called Twilight, 8 years later, that she rediscovered her love of fiction. Soon after, her own characters began to make themselves known. The Forgotten Ones is her first published novel.
