Book Review: Forsaken

Once you’ve been touched by darkness, it never leaves you…

Abandoned by her parents as an infant; seventeen year old Hannah spent her childhood wading through countless foster families until being adopted by the Whitmans three years ago.

Unfortunately, Atlanta’s high society wasn’t quite ready for Hannah…or the strange events that plague her.
Chilling visions of murder, unexplained hallucinations, and a dark, mysterious guy who haunts her nightmares all culminate to set in motion a journey of self-discovery that will challenge everything she’s ever believed; not to mention her sanity.

Sent to live at The House of Lorelei on Bald Head Island, NC for ‘kids like her’, Hannah quickly realizes things are not what they seem. Her fellow ‘disturbed’ teens are actually the descendents of mythical Sea Gods and Goddesses. And so is she.

But when Finn, the ghost from her dreams, appears in the flesh; her nightmares become reality and her dark visions begin coming true. Inexplicably drawn to him, she can’t deny the dangerous hold he has on her heart. The deadly secrets he harbors will ultimately test her courage and push the boundaries of her love.

She must decide if she is ready to embrace the ancient legend she is prophesized to be a part of. The fate of all the descendents will forever depend upon it.

How can you say no to a book with a cover like this? It seems magical and fairytalish and beautiful. So even though i didn't have time, i just said yes.

And lucky me, the story is as captivating and magical as the cover. It takes you in from the very first page, full of twists, romance and even some action. The mystery around Anastasia and the world surround her is just so original and clever that you just can't stay away from it. The easy writing helps a lot, with description that give life to the scenes.

One thing that i really admired the author for, was how when you have a character that has nothing in common with you but you still manage to make them so believable and real that the person who reads totally connects with them. And i'm talking of course about Anastasia. One of the most lovable character's i've read about.

 I did had two main problems though. One was the fact there was that "stalking while sleeping" which is creepy and doesn't make sense to me. It really got my bad mood up when i read that part. Still, the most important part was the repetitive on how beautiful and sexy Finn was. No idea how many times i've read those words. The things is, that the descriptions are so alive and vivid that you don't need a reminder after the first time. It's actually like seeing him while the author describes him, so everything more on the obvious is like too much and sometimes annoying too.

Great read! Going to the next one immediately!
