The Forsaken by Estevan Vega Review & Giveaway

From Amazon - The first victim has no natural wounds. No prints left behind. No lacerations. But the life has been gruesomely drained from the corpse, and a broken cross is now imprinted inside the skin.  Left for dead a year ago by his former partner, reckless and medicated Detective Jude Foster now endures mindless therapy sessions in order to be given another chance at his life.When the chief of police discovers the first victim strangely killed in this sadistic fashion, Jude enters a dark world all-too-familiar. He knows he’s seen this method of murder before, but he never caught the killer. Could this be a copycat, or is it the one that got away?

I enjoy books that are supernatural in nature, a good police procedural and intense thrillers.  I'm happy to say that The Forsaken had elements of all three, which made this book hard to put down.  Jude Foster has his own monsters to slay - especially after being left for dead by his previous partner.  Now, he has a new partner, but the monster's wont stay gone. 

A killer is on the loose, leaving drained bodies and a signature of a broken cross.  The same killer that got away before or a copy cat? Jude is determined to get his man, no matter what this time.  Whether it be pure evil, supernatural or human, nothing will stand in his way.  Along the way, the reader is glimpsed with parts of Jude's past, things that have made him what he is today and the things that still haunt him.  Add in some twists, turns, taut and chilling circumstance and you will find yourself on a heart-thumping ride.  I won't say more - I don't want to spoil it for you but if you enjoy thrillers, superb writing and the unexpected, read The Forsaken! Fantastic!

  1. This book sounds as if it has elements of everything I like to read about in it. Police, supernatural, and catch-me-if-you-can story-line. To me, this is a must-read book.

  2. my kind of book, thanks for the chance


The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
