Forbidden is unlike any book I have ever read! I was so excited to see Tosca Lee join with Ted Dekker and KNEW immediately it was going to be an amazing book! Guess what.... IT WAS!
Imagine a world where everyone is dead. There is only one feeling they experience, and wouldn't you know....it's FEAR. No anger, No greed, and No LOVE, UNTIL.... Rom Sebastian is entrusted with a vial of blood and a cryptic message that will change EVERYTHING for him, and the world He knows. The blood brings LIFE and with that life comes all the emotions he has been dead
Of course, with Rom being the chosen one to receive the life-giving blood, he must figure out how to handle these emotions he never even knew were missing. He needs his small circle of friends to help him and Rom finds himself an unlikely hero. Unfortunately, having a hero also means somewhere lurks a Villain. Saric, for me was the most jaw dropping villains I have ever read.
Forbidden is an amazing read. I am waiting anxiously for book 2 in this trilogy, "Mortals." Ted and Tosca are incredible Authors but when they join their great minds together ~ WATCH OUT! You may not be able to put the book down AT ALL!

SHORT BOOK DESCRIPTION:
Many years have passed since civilization's brush with apocalypse. The world's greatest threats have all been silenced. There is no anger, no hatred, no war. There is only perfect peace... and fear. But a terrible secret has been closely guarded for centuries: Every single soul walking the earth, though in appearance totally normal, is actually dead, long ago genetically stripped of true humanity.
Fleeing pursuit, with only moments to live, a young man named Rom stumbles into possession of a vial of blood and a piece of cryptic writing. When consumed, the blood will bring him back to life. When decoded, the message will lead him on a perilous journey that will require him to abandon everything he has ever known and awaken humanity to the transforming power of true life and love.
But the blood will also resurrect hatred, ambition, and greed.
Set in a terrifying, medieval future, where grim pageantry masks death, this tale of dark desires and staggering stakes peels back the layers of the heart for all who dare to take the ride.
