Forbidden is an YA paranormal novel in which we can witness Claire Brennan's discovery of her own amazing nature.
At first, Claire is a silly normal girl that has moved a lot trough the years and wants to find seeks stability in her life.
On the first day of school she meets a exchange student, from Scotland, called Alec. Alec is a strange guy and Claire doesn't know what to think of her attraction for him.
Claire starts having visions and has to keep them a secret, what she doesn't know is that Alec has some secrets of his own, and those secrets should keep him away from her.
This book talks about typical teenage life like hiding secrets from parents, having trouble with friends and struggling to overcome some complicated teachers at school but all that jazz while Claire discover who she is as a supernatural being.
Love and self discovery are key themes in this book but Claire doesn't only discovers herself as a nephilim but she discovers a whole new world, the world of angels, and in that world she discovers who Alec really is.
Loving Alec proves that wether you are human, angel or part angel love is always the most powerful force in the whole world.
In my humble opinion I just think that Claire and Alec are like the perfect contraparts of each other. He has a dark past with awful actions and she is a sweet innocent girl who is just now discovering the true meaning of love and fear.
In the end I think that those who love paranormal fiction, expecially about angels, will love this book and even if you don't usually read this style I think you should try to read this book, since it's very easy going and balanced in terms of action and deep plot.
I would love to see a sequel of this book, since it ends with a humongous cliff hanger, so please authors, if you're reading this, please write a sequel.
