If I thought I knew how this book was going to end—and I admit I had all the relationships stereotyped from the beginning—that was all thrown out the window in the final chapters. Taylor Pasbury is a 29 year old former secret service agent who now runs a nationally recognized security firm. Taylor is thrilled to receive the high-profile assignment, but she has no idea that Simon already knows more about her than she could imagine. There are spiritual overtones to Forsaken, but it does not loss any of the dramatic effect as an action packed thriller. I was on the edge until the very end and I'm already looking forward to read the second book in the series. I found myself sometimes cheering for a character and other times tearing-up.
After a controversial stint in the Secret Service, she has become the most prominent private security specialist in America. When the terrorists strike, making a demand of the pastor that would shake the most steadfast saint, Taylor draws on all of her hard-knock toughness and training as she fights to save Simon and his daughter. This is a story worth checking out. It is my new favorite book and Jordan is my new favorite author! The way she was talked about and portrayed, she seemed much younger, in her early or mid-teens. Some scuffs on the spine. I'm half way through the second book and hoping the writer brings it all together by the The character's are interesting and I was intreged enough by them to finish the book and order the next by this writer but the book seemed to have no beginning or end and the middle disappointed me. You will not be able to put it down, but you will also not be able to quit thinking about it afterwards.
But soon, she learns there is more to Simon then the media hype around him. A good book, entertaining, and well-written. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good+. His peers have voted him one of the Best Lawyers in America in commercial litigation. I won't spoil the story by revealing too much about the plot except to say that a pivotal player is a world renowned evangelist who must make a soul wrenching decision that few peo I found Forsaken to be exceptionally well written. Along the way, she discovers that she is not the only one who has done things she would like to forget—and she is not the only one who understands that some things are more important than living.

It makes one think deeply. Will be bubble-wrapped and carefully packed in a sturdy box to ensure safe transit. And the book was great all the way through. Well, not really, but, you know. The ending didn't inspire me like I think it was meant to. She was hired to protect Simon Mason, a famous televangelist, who has been the subject of terroist threats.
How did these great men conduct their relationships and decision-making? I only write a review if I think a book is an outstanding read and Forsaken definitely fits that category. Just for once in my life I want to be good enough. But he especially loves baseball, the sport that is a little bit closer to God than all the others. I love these books in which the ending twist throws a completely new light on all the prior character interactions. I almost forgot about this! That's all I want is to be good enough.
It is totally different than Forsaken, but equally outstanding. Thick, black flies zipped and bounced from floor to wall and ceiling to floor, occasionally smacking my arms and legs as if I were a bumper in a buzzing pinball machine. I turned away from the mirror. I won't do any spoiler alerts, but you will be surprised when the plot twists. The climax of the story seemed to happen too early and then the rest of the book tried to build up to another climax that never occurred. So the twists in the plot tickled my fancy from the get-go, and having more than one problem an intricate plot in a modern Christian novel is refreshing.
The characters were varied, complex, and dealt with realistic struggles alcoholism, adultery, kidnapping, etc. What does sleeping on the ground have to do with a world-famous preacher like Simon Mason? Forsaken is a moving and relevant saga of faith on a collision course with the brutalities of our world. I think the show vs. They also deal with the role of royalty and sideshows such as Italy, where Britian and France came to the aid of faltering allies. Really looking forward to the next volume, Double Cross, but it looks like I'll have a long wait. Book lovers, you will not be disappointed with Forsaken.
It definitely set it up at the end for another book, and I see that he has written one.

It made for an interesting character, but wasn't as powerful as it could have been, because it was told, and not shown. The story is told by Taylor Pasbury, a former Secret Service agent who now does private security work. The story begins twelve years ago—eleven years before I met Simon. But Taylor has no way of knowing that her mother, who ran out when Taylor was nine, is about to reappear and lead her down a twisting path of danger and deceit.
