Claire and Alec return October 30, 2018

The world is trying to tear them apart.

Will they stand together and fight back?

After a season of psychic visions and super-powered drama, Claire Brennan and her angel-gone-AWOL boyfriend Alec MacKenzie can finally be together. Under the protection of Claire's grandmother, they are trying to lead a normal life, going to high school at Emerson Academy and hanging out with their friends.

But jealous friends, vengeful enemies, the city's new Watcher, and even the school play threaten to break them apart. Not to mention Claire's surprising second power, which could sabotage the trust of everyone she holds dear. And just when they need to stick together, they finally get a lead on where Claire's mysteriously missing father might be.

The threats, which come not only from without but also from within, will test the strength of Alec and Claire's relationship. Is their love enough to keep them safe? If they want to stay together … can they learn to fight together?

"A YA novel that hits all the right notes... the plot and storyline are great, and the characters strong... If you enjoy angels, 'forbidden' romance and dashing heroes, then this should be added to your TBR." —USA TODAY

"This new entry into the angelic fiction genre is written in both Claire and Alec's voices. Both main characters are well-drawn, with believable motivations and reactions to their situations. The ending leaves enough room for a sequel, and fans of the genre will definitely demand one." —-School Library Journal

"Forbidden has the best trio since Harry Potter! I loved it! It had plenty of humor, romance, action, mystery, and suspense. The villain was totally badass. What truly drives this story is its amazing characters. Oh! and the cliffhanger - SO cruel. But in that I can't flippin' wait to read book two kind of way. 5 stars!" —The Book Slayer
