“Bow-Breaker. Half-breed. Cursed. Forsaken.”
The YA fantasy genre has exploded with a multitude of great books this year so far, from Dennard’s Truthwitch to Mead’s Glittering Court. Because the genre is ridiculously multi-faceted with many different sub-genres to wander through bookstores and choose from, there is, quite literally, an endless supply. One of the most popular sub-genres? High fantasy.
Harbinger, book one in Shae Ford’s Fate’s Forsaken series, follows a troubled male character, Kael, who is a “whisperer” with healing powers and an outcast in his village. After rescuing a special, sword-wielding girl, he embarks on a crazy, yet dangerous, adventure through the lowlands.
Our 50-second, cinematic book trailer for the Fate’s Forsaken series is visually-pleasing and plenty exciting enough to get the heart racing of every fantasy-lover, ever.
Seventeen years ago, a long and bloody rebellion wracked the six united regions of the Kingdom. Now the new King wields the vast and unvanquished army of Midlan with his right hand, and with his left has granted a small group of thugs — the nobles he calls his Sovereign Five — unbridled rule over the other regions. As if this weren’t bad enough, the King has also outlawed the practice of whispering — which is a problem for Kael.
It’s not like he asked to be born a whisperer: he didn’t ask for his strange healing powers anymore than he asked to be the village runt. And when he rescues a wounded girl from the perils of the Unforgivable Mountains, his luck only gets worse. She couldn’t have been just any girl: she had to be Kyleigh —the sword-wielding renegade knight with all of Midlan on her trail. Then one miserable, snowy evening, things go from bad to worse, and Kael is left with no choice but to follow Kyleigh down the mountains and into the tumultuous lowlands. She leads
him on one mad quest after the next — eventually pulling off an act of such mischievous proportions that it threatens to change the Kingdom as they know it.
