There are secrets buried beneath the roots of Blackthorn Forest.

Luna Redlock is no stranger to the trees. However, when Isaac Brewer and his nephew, Tristan, return to the cobbled streets, a darkness descends upon the sleepy village. Their presence sets in motion a catastrophic series of events.

Luna’s story is just one of many in Blackthorn’s mysterious history, but there is one thing tying them all together: potions, portals, and above all... power.

Can Isaac right his wrongs from centuries ago before all is lost to a wicked ruler?

A mythical tale, ‘Blackthorn and Beyond’ spans 150 years and seamlessly weaves the lives of several characters to result in a story of magic, intrigue, love and hope.

I raced through ‘Blackthorn and Beyond’ and could not put it down. Each twist in the story and new character provided an extra layer of complexity to the story and the worlds and characters which Ellie has created are compelling and magical.

Ellie’s vivid descriptions in this story provide the reader with a sense of the darkness and fear surrounding some of these worlds and made me feel that I really was in the story seeing the world as the characters were.

Ellie has written an absolutely magnificent story which is masterfully written and unlike any other fantasy book that I have read. I was disappointed when the story finished and am eagerly awaiting Ellie’s future work!

I've had the absolute honor to review Blackthorn and Beyond by

Blackthorn and Beyond is a light fairytale fantasy! Told from the perspective of 5 different POV's in past and present, spanning 150 years in a little village next to a dark forest. Some common themes in this read are witches, magic portals, and an alternate world with a dash of romance in between, which adds to the plot of this read!

Personally, I LOVED this read! Once I fell in love with the plot, this was one of those books I couldn't put down! Typically, I can not stand multiple POV's, but Ellie did an amazing job drawing me in with the uniqueness of these characters!

If you love light fairytale fantasy with witches and magic portals with a dash of romance, Blackthorn and Beyond might be a read to add to your TBR (release date: October 28th, 2024) !
