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—at terrible risk.

The first book in a thrilling series set in a desolate future, Forbidden begins a journey that continues with Mortal and concludes with Sovereign. From the combined pens of master storytellers Ted Dekker and Tosca Lee, this tale of passionate love and dark desires peels back the layers of the heart for all who dare to take the journey.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Sarah Jamison | 2/8/2014

    " God bless you, Ted Dekker and Tosca Lee, for writing Christian literature that reads like a Bruckheimer movie. I am happy the sequel is waiting on the New Releases shelf at the library. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Kylie | 1/30/2014

    " I didn't dislike this book, but I was definitely disappointed. The story line was intriguing but I had a hard time caring for any of the characters. I also felt that the conversations between the characters were extremely repetitive and redundant. I really wanted to like this book more than I could bring my self to do. The ending has made me curious about the next book and I haven't put it out of my head to read the next one yet but I will have to have a break before I start that one. I could see this story going somewhere but if the next two books and characters in them are like the first one, I won't be able to finish it. "

    " This book took me a while to get into. Then I realized that its the first in a series...ahh setting up for the long haul...now I got it. By the end, I was intrigued and would like to finish the series. The pacing was a little slow during the middle part but the action at the end brought it all together. "

    " Dekker has done it again! He and Tosca Lee take us into a new world of intrigue and suspense. Masterfully plotted with characters that reader comes to care about. Absolutely cannot wait for the sequel. Buy this book! "
