Riley has always wanted to be a Demon
Trapper like her father, and she's already following in his footsteps as one of the best. But it's tough being the only girl in an all-guy world, especially when three of those guys start making her life more complicated: Simon, the angelic apprentice who has heaven on his side; Beck, the tough trapper who
thinks he's God's gift, and Ori, the strikingly sexy stranger who keeps turning up to save her ass. One thing's for sure - if she doesn't keep her wits about
her there'll be hell to pay...
At first when I picked up Forsaken, I didn't think it will be a book that I would enjoy reading. The first few pages didn't get me into reading it. However, when I really got into the book and into Riley's world, it sure was something.
My views changed as I continued reading the book. I loved how the narration was divided between Riley and Beck giving the book a much better anticipation. I really connected with Beck. And Riley. And all the other characters. They just were different. Good different :)
As you can guess, Beck was one the one that stood out for me. Yeah he’s got a hell of a lot of issues but all in all he’s a great guy. I think probably because of the way he handles everything, even though he messes up sometimes ...that’s what I love about him.
Jana sure gave alotta action. Very intense stuff here. There were quite a few times where I was really freaked out; I guess it’s because of the detailed descriptions and because its about these creatures and demons, it does get a little too messy sometimes!
I am glad to know that it’s part of a series. I am really looking forward to the ones that follow. Escpecially so I can get to read more about Beck's character and see how his secrets are uncovered! I can't wait to read Forbidden.
