Hopeless he'll never be more than the boy who didn't save his brother, 17-year-old Avikar accepts his life as the family stable boy, trying to forget the past. But when his sister, Jeslyn, is kidnapped, the thought of losing another sibling catapults him on a desperate quest. 

With his best friend by his side, and using the tracking skills he learned from his father, he discovers Jeslyn has been taken, kidnapped by one Lucino, the young lord of Daath, a mystical place thought only to exist in fables. 

And Lucino has plans for Jeslyn. 

His shapeshifter brethren feed off the auras of humans, and Jeslyn's golden hue is exactly what Lucino needs to increase his power. The longer it takes Avikar to reach her, the more entranced she becomes with Lucino's world, and the harder it will be for Avikar to set her free.

He failed his family once. He won't fail again.

BROKEN FOREST is an epic tale about the bonds of family, the guilt from tragic mistakes and the ultimate quest for love, forgiveness, and acceptance. With shapeshifters, romance that's both sweet and everlasting, and action-packed fights, this coming of age story will appeal to both teens and adults.
"Lucino is a very intriguing villain -- I think including the POV of the villain is a great way to make his character much more three-dimensional -- and scary! I'd definitely recommend Broken Forest to fans of light/fairytale fantasy" ~ YA Romantics
"Be warned--you may end up rooting for the least expected character by the end of it. I sure did! I thought that said a lot about what a talented writer Eliza Tilton is. That she could have me hating someone at the start of BROKEN FOREST, and loving them completely by the end is no small task!" ~Jessa Russo, author of EVER 
"There's danger, there's desire, and there's decision. Every scene was manipulated for maximum impact. This was Tilton's fantasy world, but I felt like I was a part of it" ~ Jamie Ayres, author of 18 THING
