Cancel anytime. Jessica's had the nightmares for as long as she can remember. Nightmares of being judged for people who have died, of being branded by the angels. Her friends and family think she's crazy because of it all. Yet she carries the mark of the condemned, seared into the back of her neck, and hides it and herself away from the world.
With the pain of the past behind them, Jessica and Alex are ready to move on with their lives. But moving on is hard when it involves reconnecting with the family who wanted to send Jessica to an institution.
And living life isn't easy when someone who doesn't belong is watching her, threatening her life, determined to take Jessica back to the afterlife she should have joined months ago.
Valens has noticed his two missing employees. It won't be long before he knows who is responsible. It won't be long before he claims his vengeance. The race is on. Kieran and Lexi must scrape together an army worthy of taking on the Demigod of San Francisco before he destroys them all. Some people are ordained for greatness. Those people usually have a lot of drama in their life.
Drama I happily do without. I live in a forgotten corner of nowhere for a reason: there is safety in anonymity. I have enough problems just trying to get by. But when Kieran, a sinfully sexy demigod at the pinnacle of power, crashes into my life, suddenly my whole world is turned upside down.
He also wants me with a passion. I've agreed to work for a Demigod. My job? Find the spirit of his mother and release her before his vengeful father finds out and kills us all. Have I lost my mind? Thankfully, I don't have to do it alone. Kieran has brought in help. Bria Stevens is everything I'm not - magically savvy, edgy, and highly experienced. She's a Necromancer who loves to flirt with danger. With her help, I can suss out the clues surrounding the spirit of Kieran's mom, all while learning my potent and extremely terrifying magic.
Alivia's father left her a letter before he died, begging her to stay away from the king and the royals. But it was a plea made in vain. She never could have run from this life, not when she might be Cyrus' resurrected queen. The king has arrived in Silent Bend and with him, he brought the end to Alivia's mortal life. It's been four months since Alex gave everything to save Jessica. Life should be perfect; she has Alex, she's been freed of the nightmares, and most of all - she's alive.
But some things have changed, some things haven't. That's the problem. Alex still hasn't asked "the question". Jessica can't see the reason why, and it's tearing her apart. He's keeping something from her. Alex isn't the only one who has changed though. Something is different about Jessica, but she doesn't understand what's happened.
She just knows something's wrong, that she feels different than she used to, on a skin deep level. And it may keep her and Alex apart. But while Alex and Jessica struggle to stay together, Cole is not about to be forgotten. There are a few things he didn't tell Jessica, about his past and her future.
There are reasons why he came after her, reasons that are tied to his history that is darker than she could have ever realized.
Jessica is no longer being judged by the angels for the lives of other people. As a fan of the last book, it is nice to see Jessica having a chance of normalcy. However, life can never be ordinary for her. While the story moves forward in an entertaining, although sometimes predictable, direction.
My only complaint is she gets a bit whiney for my taste. True love, but full of surprises The 1st book was good so you want to read this one right What made the experience of listening to Forsaken the most enjoyable? I liked how the author was descriptive when she wrote this one i think that she really didn't do that in the first book branded. I like how in this book she got on to the story it took a little while for her to do that in branded. I loved it but i loved the first one more better.
I have to say the best part was the ending not to give anything out but i just wanna read the nest book like now. What other book might you compare Forsaken to and why? I might compare this book to the first book duh because in the first book she was alone, was scared, had the nightmares.
Now she doesn't have the nightmares,she had a lot more friends and she's not scared anymore. Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I think the parts that move me was the romance parts when they kissed and who they wouldn't leave there side. Any additional comments? You need to read this book like now if you are reading these comments but first read branded. I enjoyed this book. I found it engaging and yes a bit formulaic but sometimes the formula works, right?
I'd consider it light reading. The story weaves around the characters and drew me in. It's not the next great novel probably more on par with twilight than Tolkien but in my opinion there is a place for reading just to enjoy.
I listened to this and the other out now in this series at 1. Not sure if that is a good or bad sign but for me it means I can enjoy it trickling into my head without the need to have deep thoughts about the content or story.
Personally when I just want to veg that is the sweet spot as far as I am concerned. The book provides a glimpse into an alt universe where angels decide the fate of man and Angels include both the heavenly and devilish. Of course it has a base in a love story with intrigue. Good guy vs bad guy. Lots of misunderstandings and miscommunications. Inner dialogue that is self centered. And in the end the good guy Oops I'll leave that for you to discover. What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
A better plotline! I mean, really! A whole book that is dedicated to the main character whining about why her boyfriend of a few months won't propose to her?! A - she's only years old. B - get a freaking life! What message does this send to young women And better characters That's it. The "events" in this book hardly qualify to justify the word. What is supposed to be the "disasters" that move the book along, are bared "incidents. What do you think your next listen will be? Anything but the final book in this series.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Anne Marie Susan Silvey? Don't care. This book isn't worth narrating.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
