Review of Forbidden Life by Kimberly Kinrade

The road to redemption begins in darkness.

A sinister force waits for them in darkness, ready to devour their powers and take their lives.

Sam's baby is the key to a lock that must never been opened. To keep her child safe, Sam will do anything.

Drake might have found a way to get his powers back and save his family, but is it too late?

Luke and Lucy uncover secrets in an organization they thought they could trust, and the lives of all Rent-A-Kid children are at stake.

In this last Forbidden Trilogy installment, the secrets to Rent-A-Kid will finally be revealed.


This book was great.  It was full of imagination and I loved the creativity.  The trilogy had finally come to an end and I'll be sad to see it go:(  Never-the-less, this was a great end to the story.
I loved the scenes between Lucy, Luke and Hunter.  I felt like I was in a scene in Avatar or something of that level of creativeness.  The giant beetles were my favorite as were the star flowers.
The scenes with Sam and Drake were sad and a little Romeo and Juliet tragic.  I felt immensely for their situation and cheered them on as the story progressed for a happy ending.
There were so many twists and turns that led to an amazing ending.  It was a wild ride that never stopped.  I was so involved in the characters and invested in the story.
I would write forever, but don't want to spoil the trilogy by giving away the ending.  It's too fantastic for that.
This book was a super YA paranormal read that I highly recommend to adventure lovers of all ages.  I give this story five glittery stars for just being one of the best trilogies I've read:)
