Tell Me About It
Just when Sophia Pierce thinks her eternal life will be happy and peaceful, something else happens to turn it upside down. With rogue vampires approaching the town she has learned to call home, the Pierce family must prepare for battle. With some magickal help will they be able to save Wenham? Even more trouble arises when Danika, the newest vampire of the family decides this might not be the right place for her. The Pierce family has already lost one love, Caspian, when he felt he was no longer worthy of their family name. Will Danika follow his footsteps and will he be able to save her from a fate far worse than his own? 
My Thoughts
I started Forbidden Embrace straight after Immortal Embrace as I couldn't wait to read it. Those of you who have had to wait between books don't have to worry. Forbidden Embrace picks up straight were it left off in Immortal Embrace, and occasionally reflects back on a few things to keep the reader up to date.

I started this book already with my own thoughts and feelings for each of the characters. I loved Sophia even more in Forbidden Embrace, she was protective of her family even more than ever and her feelings for Nate are growing and she tries her hardest to do what is right to keep him safe, even if he dislikes it.

Danika....what can I say about her. From my previous review you already know I dislike her a lot and in the first few chapters my dislike grows even more, but in the end, when we actually get to see her thoughts I do feel sorry for her and can understand how she acted the way she did. This doesn't mean that I don't dislike her at all, just that I don't dislike her as much.

Forbidden Embrace introduces more characters. We get to learn more about the background characters from Immortal Embrace and watch as the witches, Ebony and Eliza work more on their magic to help out Sophia and her family, especially in helping prepare for the fight and making sure that they have the advantage over the Cerberus.

Again Charlotte has added just the right amount of detail to her writing, giving us the props to imagine what is going on, but not too much that it takes away from the story. Forbidden Embrace flows perfectly, not only towards the fight but even afterwards, and although the danger isn't coming directly to the Pierce Family anymore, you are made aware of it being in the background and in their thoughts.

Forbidden Embrace ends nicely, with all the story wrapped up and no big cliffhanger.
I can't wait for Mystic Embrace to be released and see what happens next.
