Oli Locklear has moved around from city to city her entire life until now, and though she’d always dreamed that magic was real she should’ve been careful what she wished for.
In the small town of Birch Hollow, in Western Massachusetts, the forest seems endless. Magic is everywhere. Creatures of myth and lore roam between the trees at night, people keep going missing, and there are doorways to other realms. Here, Oli will discover that she and her twin brother Xander are on the verge of becoming monsters, themselves, and that an ancient faery queen is out for their blood.
The Shadow Queen wants every one of the Outcrossed not under her thumb to die. She knows that only one of them can defeat her. It has long since been foretold. But she wants more than just their deaths; she wants to tear down the walls between the worlds.
As Oli and Xander—along with their friends—are thrown into a new reality of vampires, werewolves, faeries, magic, danger, secrets, and prophecy, they are forced to choose a path. But will the one they take lead them to the light, or down into shadow?

River J. Hopkins, bestselling author of SOMETIME AFTER MIDNIGHT: A COLLECTION OF POETRY & SHORT STORIES, now presents a world —much like our own—with hidden depths, in INTO THE FORGOTTEN FOREST. It’s a place rife with magic, curses, an ancient, brewing evil, and a prophecy that rests on the shoulders of a young woman and her twin brother.
The stories River writes are usually a mixture of genres, including fantasy, paranormal, horror, adventure, and science fiction. She writes for new adult—that weird stage between being a young adult, and full-on adulting—and adult audiences.
Beyond writing, she is also a musician, an artist, a poet, and a cyborg. River became disabled in 2014 after her third back surgery. Her surgeon implanted a Spinal Cord Stimulator to help regulate the pain from the nerve damage caused by scar tissue from her previous lower lumbar laminectomies. She is semi-ambulatory, and walks with a cane, mostly. When she needs to go somewhere that involves a lot of walking, she’ll use a walker or a wheelchair instead.
Ever since she can remember, River has been fascinated with mythology, lore, and legends. For the past decade, she has researched and dreamed and worked harder than she ever thought possible to begin piecing together a rich world full of magic, and twists on some stories you thought you knew. THE OUTCROSSED SERIES is just the first in what promises to be an ever expanding fictional universe.
