The White Forest by Adam McOmber Blog Tour

The White Forest

Young Jane Silverlake lives with her father at a crumbling family estate on the edge of Hampstead Heath. Jane has a secret—an unexplainable gift that allows her to see the souls of manmade objects—and this talent isolates her from the outside world. Her greatest joy is wandering the wild heath with her neighbors, Madeline and Nathan. But as the friends come of age, their idyll is shattered by the feelings both girls develop for Nathan, and by Nathan’s interest in a cult led by Ariston Day, a charismatic mystic popular with London's elite. Day encourages his followers to explore dream manipulation, with the goal of discovering a new virtual reality, a place he calls the Empyrean.     

A year later, Nathan has vanished, and the famed Inspector Vidocq arrives in London to untangle the events that led up to Nathan’s disappearance. As a sinister truth emerges, Jane realizes she must discover the origins of her talent and use it to find Nathan herself, before it’s too late.   

Adam McOmber, whose short story collection This New and Poisonous Air earned glowing praise for its evocative prose, here reveals a gift for fantastical twists and dark turns that literary fans will relish.

I really enjoyed The White Forest. It's an adult novel,  but I loved both the setting and mystery involved!

Jane is a really great character. I was able to connect with her and I thought she was such an overall awesome person! She has two close friends that I also found pretty interesting.

Their was some somewhat supernatural parts involving the main character which were kind of weird. Overall, though, I loved the plot and I thought the mystery in it was really interesting .

I won't say too much, since I don't want to spoil it, but overall The White Forest has an amazing setting and great mystery :) I'd give to 4 of 5 flowers.
