Forbidden Forest by Tenaya Jayne

My edition: Kindle


Series: The Legends of Regia #1

Rating: 3.5

Review: Forest is a halfling which is highly looked down upon. (Like it’s her freaking fault that her parents bumped uglies without safety.) She is a traffic controller. She watches the portal on Earth to make sure only shapeshifters can pass legally. Anyone or any other species else will be arrested. Forest is mostly there because she wants to prove herself and get away from Leith. Leith is a vampire who has made Forest his slave for a few years before she escaped.

Now Forest is being called back to Regia by her boss Kindel, who kind of has a thing for her, for a black ops mission. She needs to take the vampire prince, Syrus, to a wizard to fix his blindness.

Syrus teases Forest a lot. He is use to his charm working on girls because he is the prince. Forest though is immune to his charms, or so it seems. With what happened with Leith, Forest has a sort of prejudice against vampires. She made her katana out of pure silver. She wears a ton of silver jewelry all the time. To say she has trust issues is an understatement.

So it is true that there is an insta-love in this but there is an explanation behind to why there is an insta-love. So I completely understand why some people like the insta-love in this book and why others don’t like it. For me, I do like it because well… I want to tell you but that would be major spoil alert.

Now the book doesn’t just follow Forest and Syrus’s P.O.V. It shows quite a few. Mainly it’s Forest and Syrus but there are P.O.V.s from around Regia to keep the reader informed of other stuff going on and throwing in little plot twists.

I liked the book. At first I didn’t want to read it but the more I read the more it pulled me in. The are plot twists in this. I think I will read the second one when I get the time and money to buy it.
