The world building is breathtaking and the characters are complex and engaging. Highly recommended for readers who like an epic fantasy with heart and spirit."--Juliet Marillier, author of the Sevenwaters and Warrior Bards series"Forestborn took me by surprise.

Klune, New York Times bestselling author of The House in the Cerulean Sea "Like the ancient magic in its mountains, Forestborn is a tale that settles deep into the soul, a haunting love song to the dangerous splendor of the wild--and a testament to the power of friendship on the journey of grief and healing."--Joanna Hathaway, author of Dark of the West "The reader flies through Forestborn as Rora, the shape-shifting protagonist, sails over the treetops, powered by Becker's propulsively readable style."--Sarah Kozloff, author of The Nine Realms series "A captivating tale of magic, the bonds of family, and finding one's place in the world, Forestborn is a fresh take on the best of classic fantasy."--Katy Rose Pool, author of There Will Come a Darkness "Both a journey of self-discovery and a survival story . . . an epic high fantasy adventure with highly descriptive worldbuilding that is sure to please fans of the genre."--School Library Journal
