Review: Forsaken by RM Gilmore


Forsaken (Dylan Hart Odyssey of the Occult, #4)WARNING: Prevalent insanity.
The ever-cynical Dylan Hart has been given a run for her money. As her life crumbles around her, a new terrifying world makes itself known.
After a gut-wrenching escape from New Orleans, Dylan and her group of oddball friends are left wondering if their lives will ever be as they were, leaving Dylan with the fear she may be losing her mind altogether. When new information comes to light, it becomes clear there is a veil of ignorance that has hidden away the ancient and deadly. As the truth claws its way to the surface, Dylan learns she's in more danger than she ever imagined.
Desperate to survive the consequences of her actions, Dylan seeks assistance from a less than trustworthy ally. The deeper into her own fears she delves, Dylan's standard unwavering resolve breaks away, leaving in its wake a raw center the world has yet to see. Prepared to fight to save herself and the last of the friends she has left, Dylan has to ask herself, what is the price of badassery?

The answer just might be her soul.

Shona's review 4 of 5 stars

As I have said in the past, I LOVE Dylan Hart, she is my kind of Heroine, she is foul-mouthed and opinionated and she is real. She has you laughing along with her and cringing at her mistakes. This is the kind of girl you want as your BFF. And despite everything that has happened to her just recently she hasn't changed, she's just allowed us to see a little deeper than before.

This book unfolds at a slightly slower pace than the others, which means you actually have time to process whats going on rather than the previous "oops, shit, run" mania that Dylan found herself in. We learn more about the world Dylan has unwittingly emerged herself in, which means we find out more about Cyrus and Dominika. And we ultimately find out more about Dylan herself... while Dylan also learns a few home truths.

Gilmore has done a fabulous job of writing a heroine who defies the norm, she leaves you guessing, and second guessing the twists and turns of this rapidly unravelling tale and in doing so she gives new meaning to the phrase "bitch from hell". I for one cant wait to read the rest of Dylans story.
