Publisher's Summary

Nora Colburn was perfectly content in life. A junior in high school, she had good friends, a great family, and did well in school. Nothing particularly exciting ever happened where she lived, and everything was stable.
But that all drastically changes when a new student arrives at Nora's school. Wild rumors swirl about his past, and Nora becomes determined to find out the truth.
As she gets to know the mysterious student, he shares with her an ancient secret - one that may yet put both of them in grave danger.
And for the first time in her life, Nora is exposed to a completely unfamiliar world. She is swept away on an exhilarating journey that takes her to a place where romance and great destiny may yet await...and where supernatural powers run wild.

WIMPY HEROINE & THE WORST NARRATOR I'VE EVER HEARD

Would you try another book from Sophia Sharp and/or Pamela Lorence?

No. Absolutely not. The author's writing is terrible, and the narrator sounds like she's reading to a bunch of toddlers.

Would you ever listen to anything by Sophia Sharp again?

No.

Would you be willing to try another one of Pamela Lorence’s performances?

Not even if you paid me to. Her weird cadence was a total mismatch for something intended for teens. She sounded like she should be reading preschool books.

What character would you cut from Forsaken?

I was only able to make it to chapter 5, but from what I did hear, none of the characters had ANY redeeming qualities.

Any additional comments?

This is a very sub-standard take on the classic 'damsel in distress.' The heroine was a complete milquetoast. I wouldn't want younger girls or tweens to listen to this because the main character is not someone I'd think anyone would want a young girl to emulate. I wouldn't recommend it for teens because the writing probably would not hold their attention and would, therefore, be a COMPLETE WASTE OF MONEY/A CREDIT.

I'm almost always able to at least finish a book and I'm not usually so harsh with my reviews, because almost every book has *some* redeeming quality. But seriously, I am astounded by the BADNESS of this book. There are some YA novels which make great listens for people of all ages. This is not one of them. Please, go read something else.
