Forgotten Sins - Rebecca Zanetti


For this review and more visit my blog


Forgotten Sins was one hell of a ride and I am not really sure if I liked it or not. It was an action packed and had a great dark atmosphere but it was extremely far-fetched and I couldn’t really take is seriously.

I have read quite a lot of Rebecca Zanetti’s work in the past and have to say that I much prefer her contemporary work to her supernatural. Forgotten Sins is in the middle of the two genres, it is not about werewolves or vampires but there is a science fiction edge to this. I have seen the ‘super soldier’ thing before and it takes a little getting used to when reading but generally I like it. I still prefer her contemporary romance works but the idea behind this one was not bad at all.

There is a lot going on in this book and to be honest that was part of the problem. I lost count of the amount of time Josie was kidnapped and attacked. It seemed that everyone and their mother wanted to take her away and after the third or fourth time I got a little bored of it.

The characters were alright. Josie was a little too stubborn and a little to forgiving if I am honest. Shane does some things that in my opinion are unforgivable I would not have been able to stay in a relationship with him. Shane was ok but was a little too bossy and pushy for my taste. The romance was explosive and there was chemistry between then but it was all a bit of a mess to be honest.

If you don’t mind suspending reality for a little while Forgotten Sins is a fast paced and action packed read but it is out there and farfetched so won’t be for everyone. I am still undecided but liked it enough to ensure I will pick up the next book in the series.
