“Joss Ware’s vision of the future is dark, complex and sharply original.”—Nalini Singh
In Joss Ware’s sizzling Envy Chronicles, the world is ash—destroyed—and now controlled by the merciless Strangers. Survivors live in constant peril. But in the heart of Envy, resistance grows…Night Forbidden is another installment in the smart and sexy post-apocalyptic paranormal romance sure to please adult fans of Suzanne Collins’s The Hunger Games, as well as the readers who devour the novels of Suzanne Brockman, Alyssa Day, Lara Adrien and Keri Arthur. Time travel forward with Joss Ware to a wildly inventive, dystopian future where danger and hot passion reign—and where one man’s perilous search for answers leads him to the love of a lifetime.

HUGE COVER PET PEEVE: Really how much does it take to get the look/feel of the leading man correct on the cover? Not that the cover guy isn’t hot but he isn’t Fence.
First thought when finished: Night Forbidden was an excellent continuation of the conflict between the Water Dwellers and the Land Dwellers!
What I thought of the story: Night Forbidden delivered on story! I was really thrilled to see how the story really picked it up a notch and the way some things changed. I can’t wait to see where it goes from here.
What I thought of the characters: Don’t throw anything at me but I think I can handle Fence’s sense of humor on a smaller scale. That being said, I freaking loved Ana. I thought she was a fantastic leading lady.
Final thought: Night Forbidden is the 5th book in the Envy Chronicles. I won’t say you have to read them in order (since I didn’t read book 3 or 4–going to correct that) but I will say you need to read book 1 first (thank you The Jeep Diva for my copy) so you get a feel for the world.
During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
