ForsakenForsaken by Gina Detwiler
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A well-crafted Christian-themed fantasy...

Gina Detwiler is the author of the YA Supernatural series FORLORN and is co-author with Priscilla Shirer of the bestselling middle-grade fantasy series, THE PRINCE WARRIORS. Her non-fiction books include The Ultimate Bible Character Guide and The Ultimate Bible Character Devotional. She's written novels for adults, including HAMMER OF GOD and AVALON, under the name Gina Miani.

Gina Detwiler’s FORSAKEN is Book 2 in the FORLORN series. It’s an excellent Christian fantasy that will grab readers and hurl them far beyond the boundaries of our limited world. This YA fantasy has intriguing twists and turns that will easily captivate the reader from the first page to the last. Although the book is part of a series, it can be read as a standalone. However, I would highly recommend starting with book 1 in the series FORLORN.

In summarizing the synopsis, we find that Grace Fortune watched her boyfriend, Jared Lorn, die nine months ago. Grace doubts Jared's death. She and her friends investigate Silo City, an abandoned silo complex with dark secrets and abandoned people… Jared is alive and working with the enemy, Blood Moon frontman Lester Crow, to save the girl he loves. Jared's "deal with the devil" will take him cross-country into darkness. Jared must use Blood Moon's music to fight while defending his mind and soul… Jared and Grace desperately want to be reunited, but first, they must overcome the demonic powers, and pray for God-forsaken Nephilim Jared's future…

If you are looking for a well-written and exceptional fantasy book with unforgettable characters and a gripping plot, Gina Detwiler’s FORSAKEN will not disappoint you. It’s a Y/A fantasy that maintains a compelling hold from start to finish. Highly recommended and a well-deserved five stars from me.
