Few days back I read a review on this book by one of my fellow bloggers who raved about just how much she loved this book. I decided then and there that I have to get this book. I just can’t thank that blogger enough for introducing me to this awesome book and obviously Silver Dagger Book Tours for sending me the review copy for the blog tour.
In the initial pages, I was almost certain that I know what this book would be about, but then, just then this book threw all my speculations out of the window. At around 19% this book gripped me first, and then with each passing page this book gripped me even tighter, finally loosening it’s grip after I turned the very last page.
As the story progressed and new revelations were made, The Forgotten Ones became more and more chilling and thrilling. From 19% to the last page this book was completely unpredictable, and always kept me at the edge of my seat. Finally, I have to add, I totally loved each and every character of this book. From the main characters to the small characters, all the characters were well built, relatable and in one word just awesome.
If you are looking for your next breathtaking read, then search no more, The Forgotten Ones is the one for you.
LIFE AT 17 RATING
(4.5 STARS OUT OF 5)
( why I didn’t give it five stars? Because of the start, till 19% this book had not gripped me much, so….)
