    This is a MUST buy!!!!!

    I love this book and Chains. They are remarkably thrilling and interesting. I can't wait for Laurie to finish writing "Ashes" the third book in the Chains series. I am going to buy that book as soon as it comes out. I loved Chains and Forge and anyone who loves history, the Revoutionary War, African enslavement novels, or colonial times should buy this book! I would recommend this book to all my friends. After I read Chains I knew that Laurie Halse Anderson was going to be my favorite author!

    A great book for young readers This story continues the advent

    A great book for young readers


    This story continues the adventures of Isabel and Curzon, this time from Curzon's point of view. For some reason, I just didn't connect as much to Curzon as I did to Isabel in the first book. For a large chunk at the beginning of the book I kept wondering what had happened to Isabel! But Curzon himself was wondering the same thing, and he eventually found out. The circumstances that brought them back together seemed a little coincidental to me, but I can see how it was necessary for the storyline. 

    Anderson clearly did her research as she inserted her characters into real events in history. I love how each chapter began with a historical quote from a primary source, and I appreciated that the characters spoke with authentic dialogue for the time period. Listening to the audiobook version of Forge was interesting because the narrator did an excellent job of portraying a young soldier's experience. 

    This is a great book for young readers who are want to learn what it might have been like to live during the Revolutionary War. It brings history alive with strong characters and accurate historical details. The only downside of the audiobook is that it doesn't include the appendix that the print version has which helps readers distinguish fact from fiction, find further resources for research, and learn the meaning of the colloquial phrases used in the novel.

    Highly Recommend

    Forge is a sequel to Chains but stands alone. It takes place at Valley Forge during the Civil War. Strong characters, fast plot and incredibly vivid setting makes this the best historical novel I've ever read.

    Excellent read

    I really did enjoy this book. It can certainly stand alone but is so much better after reading Chains. As a teacher, I thoroughly enjoyed the primary sources Ms. Anderson used at the beginning of each chapter. It really made the story more authentic. The action moved along at a good pace and I read it quickly. Can't wait for Ashes to come out!

    This book is excellent.

    I found Forge an extremely satisfying seqel to the first masterpiece of this series, Chains. The story picks up several months after the escape of Isabel and Curzon and is told from the perspective of Curzon instead of Isabel, which I personally enjoyed. What seems to be a spontaneous encounter snowballs into a rich, enthralling plot laced with danger, action and even love. Anderson even manages to intertwine the story of Matilda Cook from Fever 1793 (another masterful book by Laurie Halse Anderson) into Isabel and Curzon's story. Truly amazing and a must read.

    Forge rocks

    Forge is the sequel to the historical fiction book Chains. I had to read chains in school, and i didnt know what to expect. Let me just say... i absolutely LOVED it. Lauri halse anderson makes historical fiction amazingly interesting. When i read forge, which is in Curzon's perspective, i could not put it down. I read it non-stop until it was finished. I cannot wait for Ashes to come out!
