'Forbidden Life' Book Review

Welcome to the book tour for Forbidden Life by Kimberly Kinrade! The trilogy is now complete!

 Blurb from Amazon:
Described as X-Men meets Alias with a twist (and more romance), fans of Katniss and The Hunger Games will find a new heroine to root for in the action-packed Forbidden Trilogy.
"The road to redemption begins in darkness."
A sinister force waits for them in darkness, ready to devour their powers and take their lives.

Sam's baby is the key to a lock that must never be opened. To keep her child safe, Sam will do anything.

Drake might have found a way to get his powers back and save his family, but at what cost?

Luke and Lucy uncover secrets in an organization they thought they could trust, and the lives of all Rent-A-Kid children are at stake.
In this final installment of the award-winning "Forbidden Trilogy", the secrets to Rent-A-Kid will finally be revealed.

**My thoughts**

In a way, I was sad to see the trilogy come to an end. I have enjoyed reading about Sam, Drake, Lucy, Luke, and all of their friends as they seek justice against Rent-A-Kid. All of them have grown leaps and bounds over the series, finding new strength within themselves. They have loved and lost, bonded and separated, experiencing things that no kids should ever have to face. 

This book is also action-packed, with some great fantasy thrown in. Without giving away the story, there is an island on which some of them find themselves. I can picture it just as vividly in my mind as if I were watching the book play out on the screen. Elements of fantasy with changed characters and new creatures add to its mystique. 

This book was really easy to read and again drew you in. I stayed up way too late a couple of nights reading more and more. I do believe that there are some more adventures on their way that include Luke and Lucy. I can't wait to read those!

I received a copy of this book via Innovative Online Book Tours in exchange for my honest review.

  2. Thanks so much for taking the time to review the Forbidden trilogy! I'm so glad you enjoyed them. I'm kind of sad to see it end to, but am excited about future adventures for Luke and Lucy and a few others from Forbidden Life (Including Hunter!)
