Quick Review: 'His perseverance unnerved me, scrutinizing my every move like a twisted guardian angel. Jace waited patiently for me to join him. Like he knew my defiance would crumble under his intense gaze, which was exactly why I avoided him…until twilight. He hijacked my dreams and proved to be a different kind of nightmare – unhinged, rebellious, and dangerously mouth-watering.
“Escape from reality, Gwyneth. Sometimes life can be too painful to live in, even for immortals,” Jace whispered in my dream. His heat, fervor, and unrelenting confidence resonated around me when he closed the gap between us. His lips hovered above mine, waiting for me to give into him.' <excerpt from book>

Gwyneth’s chronicle began long before she witnessed her family being brutally murdered and lost her sight. Living as an orphan, her world is anything but black and white. She sees her vivid future that promises suffering and death. Cursed with these visions, Gwyneth pretends to be like everyone else, until a dangerously charismatic, young man walks into her life. From the moment Jace lays eyes on her, he refuses to believe Gwyneth is normal. He knows information about her past that only a psychopathic stalker could dig up. He reveals her dirty secrets. Unbeknownst details of Gwyneth’s former life unfurl.
Unsure of what to believe, Gwyneth searches for answers that lead to her inconceivable fate. However, the ancient truth she uncovers is more dangerous than any high school romance she’d bargained for. Gwyneth is drug into an inevitable battle brewing between immortal Gods and ageless Hunters – both of which have sworn to swear to kill her if deemed necessary. 

Detailed Review: <review copy received from the author herself>

At the start of the story, I was blown away. I mean, the start of the book was already sooo good! So... at the beginning, we learn about a boy who's killing Gwyneth and suddenly she wakes up to find out, it was all a dream. Actually we also learn that Gwyneth's been having these dreams lately, knowing fully that one day that would be her destiny; being killed by *that* guy in her dreams.

Sarah J. Pepper (the author) wrote such an excellent plot that practically the book was brimming with excitement that made you go... "Woah." I was really impressed with the author's writing as well as her expressive words! 

At first, I was genuinely surprised by her bestfriend's boyfriend, Ryker. Gwyneth's bestfriend, Bree is a really good friend and at the same she had the really opposite boyfriend of herself. Ryker is totally mean, hateful towards Gwyneth and a total bleh to everyone. 

The characters were written quite well with detailed descriptions that 'frame' each character wonderfully. You'll definitely enjoy this book once you get a taste of it! 

GWYNETH; I love this character! She's strong but she's more than a typical normal teenage girl - actually - there's more to this dark tale and under that pure blond hair of hers. Once she meets Jace, can she get enough of him or is this the start of upside-down relationship? 

JACE; Charismatic, in-between, who is Jace really? When he meets Gwyneth, everything he's ever known is just blown away. They're both drawn together like gravity as the relationship blossoms, who knows who will kill each other first? 

A story of Goddesses and ageless Hunters like in summary, a world filled with the unknown is a dangerous place for Gwyneth. Hunted down and found, the question is; what can Gwyneth to stop this madness? To end this battle that has brewing before her time? 

I guarantee you'll fall in love with this book! Sarah J. Pepper has developed and created a story surrounding the world where a girl is someone she never knew before, a life that has been shadowed, enemies at your every turn, this book has a delicious ending and twist that will make you want MORE! 

Brief Review: Forgotten by Sarah J. Pepper is an author who has created a world where the unknown is sweetly dangerous with twists and a secret hush between the past and present, this book will NOT disappoint you. 

My Rating: 5/5  "Totally Amazing!"
