Thanks for stopping by my blog and welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Forbidden Forest: The Dragon Holder. I am extremely grateful to both Mythos Press and the author, Wilson Feliz for giving me the opportunity to read and review this amazing book!
The Dragon Holder is the first book in the Forbidden Forest series which promises to be a spectacular series judging from this first book. I had so much fun getting lost in the world of The Dragon Holder and I can’t wait for the series to continue. If you hadn’t gleaned from the cover and the synopsis above, this book is a work of fantasy complete with magic, dragons and warriors…all things that I love to encounter in a fantasy story. My most favorite thing about this story was the way in which the author delivered it to us. The story is delivered from the perspective of multiple characters which I loved and made the story feel very well rounded. Wilson Feliz is a superb storyteller, the language was descriptive, the pacing just right and the world building was done perfectly. All of this created a very enchanting, magical and interesting story that I could not help but find myself completely lost in. I loved all of the mystery, the magic and the peril that the characters face as they each find themselves in the middle of prophecy. I really enjoyed seeing a strong female character like Anaya in this book and I love that she’s this completely badass master magician character. I also love Liam’s character and the bond that he and Shade develop as well as seeing Liam grow into his own on this journey.
I think if you know someone who struggles with the fantasy genre or who is just getting into reading fantasy this would be one of the books that should be required reading but longtime fans of the genre will find it just as enjoyable. At 128 pages this book is a super light, super fast read that delivers a great story and fantasy experience. I cannot wait to read more and I expect to read some fantastic works from this author! At this point, I’m a fangirl and I’m not afraid to say it.

Wilson Feliz is a new Young Adult and Adult fictional
writer based out of the United States. Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, Feliz
is currently serving his country as a member of the US Army.
While his day job keeps him grounded on whatever post
he’s stationed at, Feliz’s work as an author allows him to whisk his readers
away to different worlds at the turn of a page. According to Feliz, writing has
always been an outlet. “Even when I was a kid, I’d write poems and short
stories as a way to get out of my head and focus on something other than everyday
life. My imagination was always a little strange and out there.”
It was his “out there” imagination that led Feliz to
craft the world of Sindergan in his first full-length novel, The Forbidden
Forest Series: Book One, The Dragon Holder.
“The Dragon Holder literally came out of nowhere,”
Feliz stated. “I had read stories about dragons and fantasy worlds, but Liam’s
story was something that came from my heart.”
It was Feliz’s strong family bonds and sense of
loyalty that played heavily on the creation of his characters. “What you’ll see
in all my books is that there is no bond like love…All of my characters have a
strong sense of loyalty and a deep need to protect their own. The Dragon Holder
was my first attempt to express that part of myself. Yes, the book is a fantasy
novel about a different land — full of magic and mystery — but at its
heart, The Dragon Holder is about a young man stepping into his role as a
protector, taking everything he learned as a boy and using it to take care of
In his own life, Feliz takes his theme of family
loyalty to heart. When he’s not writing, Feliz is a homebody who loves spending
time with his family.
Feliz is currently working on The Dragon Holder
sequel, as well as a non-fantasy fictional novel, Mason Cartel.
