After happening upon an ancient journal through strange circumstance, Rom's world is shattered. He learns that humanity long ago ceased to live, that it exists today in a living death. In a terrible risk, Rom exposes himself to the vial of blood folded into the old leather of the journal. His change is fearful and fraught with mind-bending emotion. A once-pious observer of the Order's passionless statues, he is filled with uncontrollable impulses. He is filled with love.
He is undone, terrified, and alone in the dead world.
Rom quickly learns of a child-heir of a ruling house with the power to reverse the Order's death. However, the child's house is second in line. The apparatus of power rests with woman named Feyn, and with that, Rom's task becomes clear: he must kill Feyn so that the second-in-line may assume power. To do so will bring love and passion back into existence, but at the risk of threatening the security of the world with the revolution and anarchy that nearly destroyed it over a millennia ago.

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.
TOSCA LEE is the critically-acclaimed author of Demon Memoir, a Christy Award finalist and a Publisher's Weekly Editor's Choice. Her novel, Havah received a starred review from Publishers Weekly and 4.5 stars from Romantic Times.
Whereas Forbidden doesn't have an explicit Christian message (at least in this book, the first in a series), it gives a Christian perspective on areas such as the difference between love and lust, the subtly of deception, and the existence of an immaterial aspect to human beings. In a world dominated by fear, the main characters learn the truth of 1 John 4:18: "There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear." Fans of Dekker's Circle Trilogy will recognize his style of allegory, using the plot to imitate dimensions of the biblical story in a way that makes them feel new. The stiff, hollow worship of the Maker through the rituals of the Order is portrayed as distorted at best, or, at worst, a lie used for manipulation. True worship is seen in the reverent expectation of the Keepers who have sworn loyalty to a young boy chosen to save all of humanity.
Forbidden is a strange combination of thriller, science fiction, and fantasy, but all of the genres work well together, and the plot of the novel is instantly engaging and fast-paced. The styles of the two authors complement each other, creating a vivid, moving story. One of the book's few weaknesses comes from its main premise: in a world populated by people with limited emotion (and a few people adjusting to strong, new rushes of emotion), it can be hard to connect with the characters. At the same time, the book does an excellent job of exploring the topic of what makes us human, and why emotions, good and bad, can be both beautiful and dangerous. The bloodshed in the book can be intense, but it is meant to emphasize the evil of violence in a world that supposedly outlawed all crime. The ending isn't quite satisfactory, but because it is meant to lead into another book, it will make readers eager to read the rest of the series. - Amy Green, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
