Publisher's Summary

Gorgons might be stony-faced but they know how to rock.

After his adventure in an apocalyptic alternate dimension, Cain is ready for some downtime and mangoritas. But when a gorgon asks Cain to help her remove the curse of Medusa from her bloodline, he sees an opportunity to learn about his origins. He might even be able to help Aura with her curse.

Three birds with one stone seems like a pretty good deal. Their quest leads them to the Shalthaes Woodlands, a.k.a., the Dead Forest. Somewhere inside lies the lost city of Fyeth Elunore and its ancient library that may hold answers.

The forest is guarded by a small army of drow, and those who get past the drow have never returned. Cain has been to alternate dimensions, fought godlike beings, and faced down Cthulhu himself, but the forest holds secrets darker than anything he could have expected. In fact, the forest has morphed into something otherworldly and deadly.

An Elder Thing has infested the forest with her minions. And at the heart of this cursed place beats a rotting heart full of tentacles and madness. Cthulhu, for all his power, has nothing on the creature who rules here.

As if that wasn't enough, Cain learns that this forest of madness holds a secret that could overturn the balance of power across the realms and there are powerful beings who will stop at nothing to protect it.

There's no turning back. It's do or die, and Cain was never any good at dying.

If you like Jim Butcher, Shayne Silvers, Orlando Sanchez, Sarah J. Maas, Kevin Hearne, Steve McHugh, Michael Anderle, Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs, Shannon Mayer, or K.F. Breene, you won't be able to put down the highly addictive Chronicles of Cain.

Bow before Cthulhu and listen to the Chronicles of Cain.

Well it started out all right but.

There comes a point in the story where you need to stop and think and pull you so hard out of the book and ask why. That point cane when they were in the middle of the most deadliest forest in fairy where if you go inside It’s a death sentence. The monsters are deadly one bit and your dead The griffins are so scared they hardly ever fly over it because they’ll get a pulled out of the sky And there’s a secret city inside that holds all these answers but it’s guarded by deadly demon worshipers. And no sooner and then they escape they just have a threesome was it needed in the story? nope. Where the characters punished for doing that in the middle of a forest? nope. How about all those dark elves guarding the forest not let anything escape in infect the rest off the world with a plague. that’s a BIG Nope and a time skipping to boot with the next scene being at his house ……..


I think I’m done with this series Turning into too much DND wish fulfillment then you know the bare minimum for books. “Telling a good story.”

Best in the series so far

Discovered this series earlier this year and enjoyed 1-3 checked again and saw this released. Decided to get it a whirl. Oh boy I absolutely loved this one. This has been a good series but this one I definitely enjoyed this this one most. The introduction of new characters and overall lore drops have been such a delight. If your reading this and enjoyed the other books this is a must listen.
