Forbidden by Ted Dekker and Tosca Lee

A terrible truth has been revealed to one man: the entire human race has been drained of every emotion except one– fear. To bring life back to the world, Rom must embark on a journey that will end either in his own demise or a reawakening of humanity. But to bring love and passion back into existence will also threaten the powers of the world with the revolution and anarchy that had nearly destroyed them previously.
After happening upon a journal through strange circumstance, Rom’s world is shattered. He learns that humanity long ago ceased to “live,” that it exists today in a living death of emotions. In a terrible risk, Rom exposes himself to the vial of blood folded into the old leather of the journal. His change is fearful and fraught with mind-bending emotion. A once-pious observer of the Order’s passionless statues, he is filled with uncontrollable impulses. He is filled with love.
He is undone, terrified, and alone in the desolate world.

Lovers of the Circle Series: You will love this one!
I just finished this book less than five minutes ago. It is honestly one of the most amazing, beautiful, heartbreaking novels I have ever read!
I am in deep awe of this story. After hearing that Ted and Tosca were collaborating and reading Tosca’s work, I knew that I was in for a wild ride.
Forbidden explores what it means to be human. What the aspects of it is. The joy. The sadness. The pain.
The plot is one of the most original things I have ever come across. Set in a dystopian setting, this story really does whisk you away from this world.
The characters are so wonderfully crafted that you feel their journey from death to life. I felt sadness when people died. Despair when it seemed there was no hope left for those in the story.
Ted and Tosca have brought this world a story that will rock everything we knew about being mortal.
Join us, the other mortals, and feel what it really means to be human.

    Beautiful review Evan! I’ve read it and this made we want to read it again!!! ;P You really touched on the deep level of emotion and sacrifice of the characters and the suspense that the plot intertwines with into the theme of being a Mortal drowning in emotion.
