a honest review.Written by S J HarperSeries Fallen Siren Series , Book 2.5Published By OmniLit All Romance eBooks, LLCPublished Jul 01, 2015 Genre Paranormal RomanceISBN 9781936387960Rating 5 StarsAll Romance Author PageFor Reviews and More Check out Forsaken picks up the story right after the ending of Reckoning so things are pretty tense between Emma and Zack It s not been long since Zack found out that Emma had messed with his memory and he s angry and hurt It doesn t help that Emma can t explain her actions because she refuses to risk his life by telling him the truth She is terrified he is going to walk away from her forever but at the same time she knows that is probably the safest option for him They have to put their feelings to one side when the child of a well known billionaire is kidnapped though The two are sent to New York to work the case and they know that the child s life is important than any hurt feelings between them Can Zack and Emma find a way to work together in spite of their issues or will a child suffer because of them I ve really fallen in love with this series so I was incredibly excited to read Forsaken, after the way things ended in the previous book I was nervous about how things would be between Zack and Emma It s hard because as a reader we can fully understand where they re both coming from If I was in Zack s position I m not sure I d be able to forgive Emma s actions because he doesn t know her reasoning but obviously knowing what we do about Demeter and Emma s curse we can understand why she keeps the secret There really isn t an easy answer to the issues between them and it s hard to see how much pain they re both in I do love that they are able to put their problems to one side and get on with their job though, of course there is tension between them and they still have that spike of attraction that isn t going anywhere but they will do whatever it takes to find the missing child and I respect them both for that It was nice to see them starting to work things out too, they still have a long way to go but we re left with a feeling of hope that Zack has started to figure out that something is going on that Emma can t talk about.This was a great addition to the series and I m sure fans will love it My only issue was that I wanted it to be longer, not because the story wasn t satisfying because it definitely was, but because I love this world and these characters and I wanted to spend time with them I can t wait to get my hands on the next instalment of the series 3.5 StarsEmma Monroe is a fallen siren who is trying to gain redemption and return to Olympus after Zeus and Demeter banished the sirens for not protecting Persephone when Hades kidnapped her The gods have decreed forgiveness will come from rescuing mortal kids who are missing or kidnapping In this addition, her partner Zack Armstrong, a werewolf, recently remembered that they were lovers but Emma erased his memories So their interactions are really tense and awkward.One of Zack s friends, billionaire Roger Maitlan just asked Zack for help finding his missing son He is hoping Zack s black ops background will help Zach rescue his son So Emma and Zack put their issues on the backburner because Emma is possibly one soul away from redemption.These two clearly care for each other Part of what I hate about mythology stories is the heavy handed way and complete arbitrary way the gods rule There is no clear path to redemption Emma could gain forgiveness today or never So I don t see how the gods just have these sirens working with just a slim hope of getting back to Olympus.Emma and Zack work well as partners and their supernatural abilities give them an edge in law enforcement Overall it was a good addition to the series. Man, I love this series I m still kind of surprised I do because 1 I tend to not like police procedurals and very episodic fiction and 2 I hate books, movies, stories, anything that has something bad happening to kids The content of the investigations in these books always puts a tightness in my chest, but I ve managed to still thoroughly enjoy the book I think maybe because they ve all had happy ish endings so far Can t remember if they all have.Anyway, I totally did not know this book was out It was a huge surprise, and that means I must get myself on the author s mailing list or FB page or follow them on or something I don t want to miss the next one And I want the next one now.FORSAKEN is like the previous books novellas in this series It starts with Emma and Zach investigating a new child abduction case Emma is a Siren, cursed by Demeter this is why she has to save abducted children, and why she can t fully open up and fall in love and Zach is a werewolf A dreamy werewolf Love him so much, and really enjoy the toughness of Emma s character, too.I m glad the wallowing that I feared my creep into the next book after the ending of book 2 didn t really happen here Emma and Zach are working together, and Zach isn t acting like an idiot many other series go in that direction and I always get annoyed, so yay for keeping Zach attractive.If you like urban fantasy at all, this is a series you MUST read But don t read this book Not yet Definitely start with book one Or, you could even start with the prequel It was excellent And that s another awesome thing about this series The novellas read just like full length books You will miss out on a great story if you only read the full lengths.Summary LOVE mon avis en Fran aisMy English reviewWhen I saw the summary of this novella, I was very surprised by its important length wondering if it wasn t saying too much But ultimately, it shows the events of the first two novels and only a small part of the story is presented here which is just perfect I must say.I really enjoyed the first two volumes of the series starring this fallen siren and a werewolf whose history is cursed long before anything starts But it is true that the situation at the end of the second volume between the two was not really simple and I was curious to see how they would resolve the events together So yes it is true that the situation is very tense between the two and this is how they will find themselves together on a new case.Indeed, the son of a Zack s friend, a very rich man, was kidnapped in another state and both are called to help the police Before putting aside their differences, the two will have to work together to save this little boy Yet the story could end up being complicated than expected and Emma will have to infiltrate the dungeons used by the wealthy men to understand what exactly is happening.It was a very good little novella highlighting the relationship problems between the two heroes but also a complex and very interesting investigation I look forward to reading volume 3 Emma and Zack s relationship is fraught Demeter s interference has left Emma reeling and Zack angry with a terrible case of magical amnesiaBut all of that has to be put aside when a multi billionaire s son is kidnapped and his babysitter murdered possibly due to an extreme act of revenge or just simple greed Answers that can only be found by being professional, putting their issues aside and going undercover in a sex clubAs a book reviewer, there s a repeat problem I have when reviewing a series I like How do you say I love this book for all the reason I loved all the previous books in the series without sounding repetitive or lacklustre It s hard to make it clear that the elements that you love about a series are still making these books ones you really love to read without sounding like it s stalled or run out of ideasThis is a short story in the Fallen Siren Series and, yes, it contains many of the elements that have made this one of my favourites We have a police investigation that is interesting, tense, exciting and relies as much and on actual investigative skills as it does on magic now I do love magic heavy series but I also prefer my investigative protagonists to actually have skill rather than deus ex machinae powers that are so often used as an easy way to solve the mystery without a coherent plot.We have characters who have a romance but put it aside Again, in a genre where all too often characters have sex at inappropriate times, especially a character whose woo woo is sex based, it is refreshing to see characters that have such a good sense of priorities In this story there could be no alternative you cannot have people in charge of finding kidnapped children be distracted by sexy times But this also reflects not just in the romance but also the other character developments between them.Over the course of the books, Zach and Emma have had a fraught history Her curse, her justifiable fear of love and the constant threat of Demeter has made their relationship difficult and have left them with a lot of issues and rifts between them And, as professionals, as capable dedicated adults, they are quite capable of putting aside all this emotional drama to focus on the essential task at hand I really appreciate that.Read More Forsaken by S.J Harper is book

angry relationship rebuilding between Emma and Zack Starting right where we left off in Reckoning, Emma is still recovering from the injuries inflicted by Demeter She s just tired and hurting on so many levels So sitting on a plane next to a very angry Zack isn t helping much.Once they land things move rather quickly in the case they have been requested to intervene in, and Zack begins to see things a bit differently I suspect he is beginning to grasp that there are things going on he isn t aware of Forsaken is a short read, however a very engrossing and thoroughly captivating one as well So I won t revel anything about the case as not to spoil it for you All I will say is that this series is getting better and better with each installment.5 STAR READ GUYSFollow us onKT Book
