Lowcountry author Signe Pike’s The Forgotten Kingdom, the second novel in the critically-acclaimed “Lost Queen” trilogy, will be released on paperback on June 8th. Praised by the Associated Press, First for Women, and Redbook, Pike continues to detail the real life of a sixth-century Scottish queen believed to be the twin sister of Merlin.
The trilogy is currently being developed as a television series by Made Up Stories after Bruna Papandrea won the rights in a competitive Hollywood auction in 2018.
