Lilly and Shep had grown up together, neighbors and friends, and as they grew the bond grew until at the age of eighteen they knew they were soul mates. What they didn't know was that they were refugees from another world and they would be called back to rescue their mothers. A Broken Forever is the dual story of two life long playmates raised together, one set bonded and married, the other set promised to each other but not bonded, torn apart by love. One man's obsession with a woman he cannot have leads a whole country into turmoil. Angie Merriam does a wonderful job of weaving the world of Earth and Neveah together and making them seem somewhat alike. There are similarities in the stories of the two different generations, yet neither generation has learned not to sacrifice themselves to save a loved one.
A Broken Forever is scheduled to be the first in a series of books set in the world of Neveah. While this does end on a bit of a cliffhanger, it does seem to be a pretty natural stopping point in the story. The characters of Lilly and Shep are so naive and innocent it is refreshing. In fact, most of the people in Neveah are naive and innocent, more so than the regular world of today, and so it makes it a comforting book to relax into and read. There is one pretty detailed assault scene that might be a little graphic for younger readers, but for the most part it is pretty well written for young adults and adults.

Neveah (A Broken Forever)
A imaginative fantasy with romance and adventure. This story has wonderful characters that at times are unbelievable.
A journey to another world that will have you turning pages for more. This story is full of romance, adventure, laughter, crying, murder, mayhem, unique characters, and more.
What I liked:
I liked the journey and adventure to a mystical place. I usually don't read this type of book, but Neveah has changed my mind. I look forward to the next book & part of this journey.
What I didn't like:
When I started reading, I didn't care too much for Lilly & Shep. But, as time grew, so did my love for these characters.
The beginning was a little slow and kind of unbelievable. I'm a "Happy ever after" kinda girl, and I'm hoping it will come in the next chapter of this series.
