Forsyth Turn never wanted to be a hero. And yet, even in the Overrealm, a hero is what he’ll be.

After their last adventure in Hain, Forsyth expected to return to the life he’d built with Pip and Alis, his days of magic and heroics behind him. But then Pip starts suffering night terrors laced with images of glowing ivy and Elgar Reed calls with fears of bizarre threats and

I received an e-ARC from the publisher and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Review can be found on *Milky Way of Books*

The thrilling conclusion to this amazing series is here! I can't express my love enough for this book which, along with the series, should be given more attention. It's not your usual story, the author hints lots of social issues through her writing in a brutal, yet sarcastic way and there is a wonderful cast of characters!

So, after the end of the second book and its

The Silenced Tale, Book 3 of the Accidental Turn Series, J.M. Frey

Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews

Genre: LGBTQIA , Sci Fi & Fantasy

I've loved this trilogy, fresh and unusual, it hinges round the characters in a series Elgar read wrote. By some quirk of fate he wrote magic so perfectly that it – and the actual characters, places and events, became real. As a Reader, Pip was pulled into the world and met Forsyth. Now they both live in the Overrealm, our world, with their daughter Alis.

I received this ARC through NetGalley.

Wow! I don’t think I’ve ever read the third book in a trilogy without having read either of the first two, before. And I probably wouldn't have done it this time, either, except that I somehow committed myself to writing about the third, and I didn’t think that there was time to read the previous two. Or even one. For some reason, I got it in my head that this needed to be done by the end of November. I was wrong, but, oh, well.

Given how much background I wa

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. 


There is no end to how wonderful these books are. It's much different than the last two, as it never takes place inside the book, but entirely in the Overrealm. As much as I personally prefer the Turns' world, I think Frey has just as much talent writing in our world. The suspense and a three-dimensional view of Elgar Reed showed her incredible writing skills in any scenario. 


Of course I'm so glad for the return of Frey's characters, her femini

All good things come in threes and the Accidental Turn trilogy is no different. Whilst I loved The Forgotten Tale, after reading The Silenced Tale I have to admit that it did suffer slightly from the second-book slump—though only in comparison. The Untold Tale was absolutely brilliant in how Lucy pokes at the fantasy novel from within the novel, and The Forgotten Tale continues in that tradition, but The Silenced Tale takes it into a whole different plane.

In this third book, the focal point move

I started on this book and I feel like I have to dive more into this wonderful world that our Writer has given us. Below is a longer fan rant but overall my review is that this book is fun and has well written characters that goes over issues and topics that are difficult to talk about sometimes but still keeps action and the story be absolutely amazing.



I have edited out the names of characters to keep spoilers to the minimum.
but spoilers just in case.
Oh my goodness I loved many of your characte

Amazing end to a wonderful series in which the normal rules of fiction don't apply. The author speaks through these characters with such a clear view of the way things really are. Not the way we want to believe that they are. The way they TRULY are. JM has wonderful insight into what makes people tick and has created a world which unfolds before you in these three books so smoothly you'll feel like you live there too. I especially love the D&D game scene at the Con! Just when I thought JM co ...more

Absolute WOW. I have basically read this entire trilogy in the span of one week, and now that I've finished the final book, I want nothing so much as to pick up the first one and start it all over again. This ending to the trilogy has captured me so completely and wrung out my heart, and it is because this superbly written story stands on the shoulders of two amazing books that came first. The Untold Tale and The Forgotten Tale set the stage that allows this finale piece, The Silenced Tale, to b ...more

Writers of fiction provide Readers with places of escape from a mundane world of ordinary happiness and sadness, human hurting human, by providing them with worlds of excruciating goodness and evil in which to revel. Writers can inflict whatever degradation and horror imaginable upon their characters without fear of reprisal. When you think of it that way, Writer as God and Reader as Accolyte, the world of books and stories becomes a vile and evil place where the worst can happen without consequ ...more

The Accidental Turn series is one of my top 10 favorite series. I have loved every single book (and short story) that was in the series. I was very much looking forward to The Silenced Tale. I am happy to say that I wasn’t disappointed by this book at all. The Silenced Tale was everything that I expected and then some. The Silenced Tale weaves a magical tale that will not let you go.

The plot of The Silenced Tale was great. It is split between Forsyth, Pip, and Alis in Victoria, British Columbia

Where to start with this? Or should I say end, considering this was the last in the main trilogy :(

If you’ve followed me for a while, you’ll know I LOVE this feminist fantasy so much and the third novel continued it’s excellent meta analysis of fantasy storytelling in the unique way I’ve loved across all three books.

The Silenced Tale is set solely in our world, so even though I wanted to see all the characters from Hain, this kept the story fresh by not having a third fantasy quest. It also alt

This book focuses on Elgar Reed even more than The Forgotten Tale did. We spend a lot of time with him and his problems. He has always been a very specific type of person, and he’s very set in his ways. Frankly, he’s a sexist, selfish jerk, who has been coasting on writing a very popular fantasy series a long time ago. He is someone who is probably pretty familiar to anyone in fandom. Now we see his own problems, and how he is slowly starting to change thanks in large part to meeting Forsyth and ...more

The Silenced Tale was a good conclusion to the series. In this book they are not going back into the book world, since the villain has come with them into this world. In this book the Author has much more to say and since the villain is closely connected to him, we see him much more. But why, ou why, was it necessary to change the Author who at the beginning of the book is jolly old man, who is slightly overweight and slightly freighted of everything, into a drooling brute, who is after fan girl ...more
