With Eileanan trying to recover from war and Lachlan now ruling the lands, it is time for more evil to be cleansed from the lands and the rightful rulers put back into their seats. Elfrida NicHilde, is one of these such rulers, and along with a small party of witches loyal to Lachlan and implored by him to help, sets out to take back Tìrsoilleir, and free a long term prisoner Killian the Listener.
These tasks set before the small party are not an easy feat to achieve and Lachlan appeals to the banprionnsa Finn for help. As Finn has fought beside Lachlan and the Eileanan Witches many times before it didn’t take much convincing to get her to join them. It isn’t long before the party are deep in the thick of their mission facing dangers and testing their resolve, but what they find may not be what they had counted on.
Again Kate Forsythe has given us another thrilling episode in the Witches of Eileanan series. Filled with magic, action, and suspense, The Forbidden land is a nice addition to an epic storyline. I recommend this book for mid teens and up, and I give it a rating of 7/10.
