In addition to the better plot, the pacing of this book has really picked up compared to book one. There was no slow start, and there was a big finish, with a cliffhanger ending!
Riley hasn’t changed at all since book one, In fact, I think she may have become even more annoying as a main character – if that is possible. There are several instances when she completely lacks common sense, which would have caused me to shout at the page if it hadn’t been so late at night. Riley also seemed very bipolar to me, especially when it came to relationships. A lot of her emotions seemed to come out of the blue, and disappear just as quickly.
I liked Beck a lot more in this book; he’s become a lot more sensitive towards certain people. Again, he seemed a bit bipolar to me. He's definitely become hotter since book one, and I think I'm starting to fall in love with him. Just a bit!
We saw a whole lot more of Ori in this book. I’ll let you decide whether this is a good or bad thing when/if you read this book! I loved him at first, but then... He's a moron. That is all.
Also, Simon... Grr! He's a moron as well. Moving swiftly on...
As for the ending - Well, I loved it! It’s left me craving for book three in the trilogy. I suspected something was going on, but at the end it all was revealed in a huge twist. Now that this certain thing has happened, I am really curious to find out what happens in book three, and I find myself dying to know if everything works out!
To those who have read the book – Is anyone else worried about Beck? I don’t like not knowing where he is...
Forbidden is called Soul Thief in the US, and is going to be released on August 30th.
