Overview

Forbidden (Medieval Series #2) by Elizabeth Lowell

They call her "Amber the Untouched" throughout the Disputed Lands — a chaste, golden-haired beauty who fears the remarkable love that was prophesied at her birth . . . and the death that must inevitably follow. Now Duncan has come to her in darkness, as was foretold — a wounded warrior with no memory, seared by passion's fire and irresistibly drawn to the innocent enchantress who divines truth with a touch. Their romance is legend in a time of war. But when Duncan's memory returns, he sees Amber as his enemy. Still, he cannot forsake the lover who healed his body and heart. And he will defy to the death the dread forces that have proclaimed their love . . .

I'm glad these nookbooks weren't that expensive because this one was about on par with the first book in the series. It's just ok, I struggled to finish it because I wasn't really interested in the characters. Amber gave up too much too soon for Duncan, I wish she would've been stronger with more of a backbone. I wish she would've refused his touch at least once and put him in his place. The story was okay, I liked the twisted plot and the calculating of Lord Eric and Dominic, but I just couldn't get into the whole "love" story. It's ok, probably something I wouldn't read again though.

I did not enjoy this much as the first book in the series. The main character Amber was not likable. She was very selfish and somewhat like a parasite feeding off of Duncan. Although the ending was predictable, I found myself wishing she would die. I did not care for the characters in her family as they were all like her and very manipulative. Very disappointed in this book.

I felt like the characters in this book were so poorly developed that nothing made since. Yeah they LOVE each other right away. WHAT!!! I got about 1/4 of the way through and had to put it down. Very boring indeed!

I have never felt such emotions as when I was reading this book. To me Amber was a metaphor of an unconditional love that can pass through two people and that is rarely seen. If one pays attention to their emotions, one can sense emotions of someone they love like when they¿re sad, angry, and happy, with just a look. Elizabeth Lowell expressed that so vividly that chills ran through me and made me understand how it can be between two people that loved each other deeply. Of course, the steamy scenes made it all much better.

I thought this book would be great since I've read her before. Yet the female lead, 'Amber' doesn't seem to have any backbone. Throughout the first half of the book, she gives up her pride, strength, freedom, and life just to have sex with the male lead, 'Duncan.' I like Lowell's novels because the female has courage and strength, and the plot isn't all about wanted to fool around. But this isn't apparent in this novel.

Honestly , the first word that comes to mind is garbage. The characters are unlikable, mean and manipulative. Simon and Duncan are the only worthwhile ones in the whole thing. Definitely not worth the money.

Another great book from Elizabeth Lowell ! Duncan and Amber's story is a beautiful love and almost lost story . Just enough magic in there to highlight this book so very well. I can't wait to read the next book in this series " Enchanted ".

Good story

I found this story confusing. The prophecy storyline was hard to make sense out of. I loved the first in the series, but this was a tedious read.
