Sophia’s family has skeletons, but they aren’t in their graves.
At twenty-two, practicing Wiccan Sophia Parsons is scratching out a living waiting tables in her Rocky Mountain hometown, a pariah after a string of unsolved murders with only one thing in common: her.
Sophia can imagine lots of ways to improve her life, but she’d settle for just getting rid of the buzzing noise in her head. When the spell she casts goes wrong, the static turns into voices. Her personal demons get company, and the newcomers are dangerous.
One of them is a man named Charles, who Sophia falls for despite her better judgment. He has connections that might help her unveil the mystery surrounding her ancestor’s hanging, but she gets more than she bargains for when she finally decides to trust him.
Survival in his world, she learns, means not asking questions and staying out of the immortal council’s way. It’s a line she crossed long ago. If Sophia wants to survive the council and save the people she loves, she must accept who she is, perform dark magic, and fight to the death for her freedom.
I’m always skeptical when I sit down to read another vampire/supernatural book, wondering if will it be any different from the ones I have read previously. The Forever Girl was not only different, it was one of a kind.
In this book you will read about familiar creatures, like Strigoi, and will be introduced to a new breed, the Cruor. Wiccan beliefs are also included, along with some mixed breeds that make for an exciting twist.
The Forever Girl is out of the ordinary, and I enjoyed reading it immensely. The companion novel, Her Sweetest Downfall is also remarkable. Should you decided to read both, which I hope you do, I must recommend, that you read Her Sweetest Downfall first. Why? Without revealing to much, Her Sweetest Downfall has some interesting insights and characters you need to know prior to reading The Forever Girl. Enough said.
Rebecca Hamilton has done a superb job of making The Forever Girls Series authentic, with characters that seize you from the moment of their introduction to the very last page. I very much look forward to reading more from the series in the future, confident, each book to be even more riveting than the last.
As always, I like to include a few of my favorite quotes from my favorite character in the book, Adrian.
“You’re funny when your angry.”
“Don’t test my patience. I’m offering you an out.”
“I was unaware the woods belonged to you alone. Is there anywhere else I shouldn’t already be when you get there, in the event you might continue with your accusations?”
“I don’t wish to be done with you.”
I give The Forever Girl five stars!
