The Untold Tale – J.M. Frey

Forsyth Turn is not a hero.

But when a raid on the kingdom’s worst criminal results in the rescue of a bafflingly blunt woman named Pip, Forsyth finds his quaint, sedentary life turned on its head.

Forsyth Turn has no desire to be a hero.

Dragged reluctantly into a quest he never expected, and fighting the kind of villains that step out of stories, Forsyth is forced to confront his own self-shame and the demons that come with always being second-best. And, more than that, when he finally realizes where Pip came from and why she’s here, he’ll be forced to question not only his place in the world, but the very meaning of his own existence.

But Forsyth Turn can no longer remain a secondary character in his own life.

The Untold Tale gives agency to the unlikeliest of heroes: the silenced, the marginalized, and the overlooked. It celebrates the power of the written word, challenges tropes, and shows what happens when we refuse to remain overlooked.
