To lose the game is to lose your life in bestselling author L.J. Smith's THE FORBIDDEN GAME.
To capture the love of Jenny Thorton, Julian--a visitor from a dark world--draws Jenny and her friends into forbidden games; the contest for a human soul. The prize is Jenny's freedom. The stakes are all of their lives. Jenny's friends are determined to help her win. But Julian is the master of the Game. Jenny's most desperate fight will be with him, this eerily handsome boy with electric blue eyes. He knows her deepest secrets, her darkest fears. He has almost infinite power. And the only thing he wants is for Jenny to surrender to him--body and soul.
L.J. Smith has always been one of my favorite author. And this is one of my favorite YA trilogy.
Julian's character is so strong that despite the fact that he is the antagonist, you can't help yourself not to fall in love with him. His love, or rather obsession with Jenny led to a terrorizing game for Jenny and her friends.
Jenny, driven by her love for Tom and her friends, tries to out-wit Julian in his games.
I quite expected what's gonna happen between Jenny and Julian in the end. It is how it should be. But, i already fell in love with Julian. And hoped it would have been different.
This page-turner book will keep you entertained until the very last page. The story is creepy(Shadow Men themselves???Ever wonder why sometimes you feel like someone is watching you???), maybe that's why it appealed to me. You'll get hooked till the very last page wondering what will happen to Julian, Jenny and her friends in the end.
