Forgotten Places by Johanna Craven

Van Diemen's Land, Australia. 1833

English settler Grace Ashwell flees an abusive lover in Hobart Town, with six-year-old Violet in tow. In her head, escape is easy: find work in the northern settlements and earn enough for passage home to London. But the terrain beyond the settled districts is wilder than Grace could ever have imagined. She and Violet find themselves lost in a beautiful but deadly land where rain thunders down the sides of mountains, the earth drops away without warning and night brings impenetrable darkness.

Deep in the wilderness, they find a crude hut inhabited by Alexander Dalton, an escaped convict long presumed dead. Hiding from civilisation in an attempt to forget his horrifying past, Alexander struggles to let Grace into his world.

When Violet disappears, Grace's fragile trust in Alexander is put to the test. And while she searches for answers, he will do anything to keep his secrets inside.

Inspired by the true story of t…

Remedy(The Forgotten Legacies Series Book 3)
By K.J.Simmill

Before there were legends there was war. 
Before fables came twisted truth and distorted tales. 
Things deemed too dangerous were sealed, and bound for all eternity. 
Or so it was believed. 

Whispers from an ancient realm threaten the peace, drawing a lone adventurer into The Depths of Acheron. 
He seeks something from within this sealed domain, and those banished want something in return. 
Something belonging to them. 

There was a prophecy forged of rebirth and death. 
But knowing what is to come can change what will be. 
And there is one who seeks to do just that. 
He intends to use every tool at his disposal, every distraction and manipulation, to ensure the future will be his. 

The time has come for the forgotten to be unveiled, and for the sealed to be unbound. Only then will the world know true fear.
