4.5 Star Review
Forbidden is a powerful opening to what I hope will be just the beginning of a compelling series. The short story opens with the introduction to a fascinating, albeit dark world, where women are breeders, men warriors or simply cannon fodder to the terrifying demons lurking on the outskirts.
We are introduced to the main character Jax. A warrior who begins to struggle with his role, his position in the world that he is living. He begins to question the sanity of the life that he is leading. J.V.K effectively opens up this captivating character to us, allowing us to feel compassion towards his cause.
It is when Jax is at his weakest, when he begins to doubt the world around him, that he meets an intriguing and somewhat cruel man. A man that turns his world upside down, and sparks desires in him that he wasn’t prepared for.
Forbidden flows smoothly and has lovely moments of real tension. Moments that are almost palpable. J.V.K has effectively developed a world that came to life, and characters that were terrifyingly real. Bex ‘n’ Books rated 4.5 sassy fairies.
