Publisher's Summary

The unforgettable story of one woman’s perilous journey to save, The Forbidden.

Rebaa’s adopted tribe lies slaughtered behind her. Rebaa’s lover, Juran, lays down his life for hers, and now she must use all of her cunning and extraordinary powers to survive the inhospitable wilderness alone, ensuring that Juran’s sacrifice was not in vain.

But Rebaa’s battle for survival has only just begun...

Hunted by savage predators and more terrifying still, the nightmarish Eldrax, a murderous chieftain who will stop at nothing to possess Rebaa’s mysterious powers for his own, her very existence becomes a life-or-death chase in the pursuit and quest to reach the one place that surely offers salvation and a safe haven she can call home. But what haven could possibly exist for one who bears The Forbidden?

Will Rebaa find her salvation, or will crushing loss, hardship, and the burden of carrying The Forbidden first destroy her from the inside out?

Includes a bonus story, Forbidden Son.

Not Compelled to Finish

Didn't finish. Too many negative emotions. Stressful and anxiety producing. Very few positive points

Great!

This is a wonderful story! I enjoyed it so much. The narrator brought it to the plate. She did all of the characters with passion.

Had my Attention

This book had my attention from page one. Originally I found the detailed descriptions a bit too much as there is a lot of gore and "pity me" to start off. Then as I got into the actual story line the detail painted a vivid picture. I was surprised to "see" the color of the skins and clarity of sizes come to life. I have already pre-ordered the next book.

They desperately need a different reader

The reader sounds like a young girl trying to do mens’s voices but it just sounds like boy’s voices. I quit at chapter 5. I couldn’t get into the story maybe because the voice was distracting but I really didn’t find that the story caught my interest. Too bad I used an audible credit for this one.

excess violence ruins decent storyline.

started out with a decent premise but I really didn't need the gorefest or slaughter of kids and teenagers and rape at which point I stopped listening. I prefer something a bit more cerebral but I'm sure this will appeal to a different demographic. I had high hopes for it but was disgusted at the totally unnecessary violence. A female narrator doing a poor job at a man's growling voice reminded me of jackanory....v. disappointed.
