As you may all know we are hosting a surprise book tour for Forest of Souls by Lori M. Lee. Thank you to everyone who signed up, we are super excited to see all your wonderful posts!
Lori has talked about how important the friendship aspect of Forest of Souls is to her, and that’s something that all of us here at Hear Our Voices can resonate with. At its core, Forest of Souls is a story about friendship and the lengths we go for our friends and community.
The hosts at Hear Our Voices are incredibly grateful to the book community for rallying together to support Lori and Forest of Souls! We’re excited for the chance to meet Sirscha and Saengo, and we know that you are too! If you’d like to hear Lori speak more about writing Sirscha and Saengo, we’ve linked the panel that she was on during Social Distance Book Fest, hosted by our very own Natalia!
With everything said, thank you for joining us, and we hope you follow the tour! Don’t forget to join in our hashtag campaign #squadofsouls, and if you post about Forest of Souls and the tour, use #hovforestofsouls.

Forest of Souls (Shamanborn #1)
by Lori M. Lee
Publisher: Page Street Kids
Release Date: June 23, 2020
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy
Danger lurks within the roots of Forest of Souls, an epic, unrelenting tale of destiny and sisterhood, perfect for fans of Naomi Novik and Susan Dennard.
Sirscha Ashwyn comes from nothing, but she’s intent on becoming something. After years of training to become the queen’s next royal spy, her plans are derailed when shamans attack and kill her best friend Saengo.
And then Sirscha, somehow, restores Saengo to life.
Unveiled as the first soulguide in living memory, Sirscha is summoned to the domain of the Spider King. For centuries, he has used his influence over the Dead Wood—an ancient forest possessed by souls—to enforce peace between the kingdoms. Now, with the trees growing wild and untamed, only a soulguide can restrain them. As war looms, Sirscha must master her newly awakened abilities before the trees shatter the brittle peace, or worse, claim Saengo, the friend she would die for.
