Review: Enjoyed this book so much! It's the perfect choice of read, especially because at the time I read this, I was looking for a sort of 'escape' from the real world. The world the author created in the book, while a bit dark, melancholic, and mysterious in nature, is a great one to live in even for a moment. I just thought the fantasy aspects were believable, the characters extremely likable (I do have a slight crush on the lead male character), and the writing is engaging and exciting - as it should be. I couldn't stop reading it. I couldn't put it down. It was fast-paced; a true suspenseful page-turner. The plot development, though, I have to say, was the winner for me. It was simply effortless!
So overall, while not exactly a 'favorite,' I still thought Forgotten was thrilling, exciting, entertaining, and well-executed. The concept for it is unique, and the characters are ones you'd want to get to know and want to actually care about. So yes, I highly recommend this to YA readers and fans. I would also like to say, I would most definitely be looking forward to reading more from this author, Cat Patrick. Very impressive debut!
