As a longtime Dekker fan/reader, can I just say one thing: IT'S ABOUT TIME! Dekker fans of The Circle will squeal in delight as they see Dekker return to his earlier roots of fantasy and the darkly spectacular in Forbidden, but Lee's fans will glory in the beautiful prose and innate elegance that is completely Tosca. Combined, Dekker & Lee have crafted plainly a powerful story with compelling characters. Absolutely stunning! The characters are so well developed, the pacing breathtaking, and the storyline so utterly satisfying that I am in tears that its sequel, Mortal, is not yet available. I just have one thing to say after reading Forbidden-it's good to be ALIVE!

Ehhh...

I didn't care for it. I couldn't decide if they were using stories from The Holy Bible for ideas or mocking it. It left me not wanting more. I really did want to like it.

    Not Impressed...

    ...at ALL. I'm honestly shocked by all these great reviews. I agree with the reviewer, a definite waste of time and money. If I hadn't paid for this book, I would have just stopped reading it. BUT since I did, I read til the end and still not impressed. I wasn't pulled into the writing style, plot, or the characters. This writer has awhile to go.
