About the Book: The world is ash, destroyed, and now controlled by Strangers. Survivors live in constant peril. But in the heart of Envy, resistance grows . . .
Somehow Bruno “Fence” Washington survived the apocalypse—emerging from a Sedona cave into a strange and terrible new world . . . fifty years later. Now, scouring the ruined earth for answers about the malevolent Strangers, the former extreme sportsman encounters an Amazonian beauty who calls to his every desire, but whose secret could mean his end.
Ana grew up in the ocean, diving far beneath the waves to the remnants of a world she never knew. Try as she might she can’t resist the man who tempts her in ways she never knew possible . . . whose touch elicits truths she swore never to reveal. But the passion between them won’t be denied even though it means facing a new evil rising up from the roiling waters to blanket the world in unending night.

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: Tonks a beautiful Lab/Pyr mix (Farm Rescue), Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), and Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
