The Hunter

Book_TheForbiddenGame_Vol1A“Wasn’t it Sartre who said hell was an eternity spent in a room with your friends?”  Michael asked grandly.  (p. 13)


“There is a Shadow World, like our own but different, existing alongside ours but never touching.  Some people call it the world of dreams, but it is as real as anything else.”  (p.48)


“It’s magic,” he said.  “A mystical letter from an ancient alphabet.  In this case designed to let you walk between the worlds.  If you don’t understand it, you shouldn’t be messing with it.”  (Julian p. 61)


“I can make your wildest dreams come true.”  (Julian p.69)


“I am just two and two.  I am hot.  I am cold.
I’m the parent of numbers that cannot be told.
I’m a gift beyond measure, a matter of course,
And I’m yielded with pleasure – when taken by force.”
(p. 71)


“Why are you doing this?" she said, her eyes filling again.
He sighed.  “I told you.  I fell in love with you.  I didn’t do it on purpose.”
(Jenny and Julian p. 101)


“Light to darkness, Jenny.  Darkness to light.  It’s always been this way.”  (Julian p. 101)


“I don’t think you understand,” he said.  “I’m going to have you, at any cost.  Any cost, Jenny, even if you have to suffer on the way.  If I can’t force you, I’ll persuade you – and I can be very persuasive.”  (Julian p. 103)


“I drew a picture of me opening the Bloomies catalog and finding it blank,”  Audrey said.  “That’s my worse nightmare.  Don’t look at me that way – shopping is cheaper than therapy.”  (p. 107)


Julian:  “I admire your confidence.”
Jenny: “You can admire my success – starting now.”
(p. 123)


“I’ve never been in love before,”  Julian said.  “You’re my first – and you’ll be my only.” (p. 125)


“I guess that counts as winning: getting out of your nightmare alive and with your combs intact,” Dee gasped finally.  (p. 131)


“Uh, you first.  I’m a registered coward,” Michael said. (p. 137)


“You don’t need right – if you have strength.”  (p. 175)


“Do no harm
Help when you can
Return good for evil”
(p. 177)


“You’re right.  Maybe things are that bad.  But that doesn’t mean I have to give in.  I won’t join you willingly, so you might as well try force.”  (Julian p. 178)


“This ring, the symbol of my oath,
Will hold me to the words I speak:
All I refuse and thee I choose.”
(p. 233)


“Sometimes you can’t return good for evil; sometimes evil simply has to be stopped."  (p. 241)

The Chase

 Book_TheForbiddenGame_Vol2A“You see how it is with us?  You can’t fight it any more than I can.  You’ve tried; you’ve done everything you can to kill it.  But you can't kill my love for you.”  (Julian p. 375)


“In the midst of the word she was trying to say,
in the midst of her laughter and glee,
she had softly and suddenly vanished away –
For the Snark was a Boojum, you see.”
(p. 399)


“The image isn’t reality,” Zach said quietly but with force.  “Even though we’re used to thinking that way a lot of the time.  We show a kid a picture of a dog and say ‘This is a doggie’ – but it’s not.  It’s just an image.”  (p. 413)


“I’m going to kiss you . . .  until you faint.” (Julian p. 419)


“There is no good and evil, only black and white.  But either black or white on its own is boring, Jenny.  If you mix them you get so many colors – so many colors . . .”  (Julian p. 420)


“Don’t worry about it, Mikey,”  Dee said comfortingly.  “You’ll probably be next, so you won’t be here when our Great Deception comes crashing down.”  (p. 429)


“Maybe it just means that love can be stronger than fear,”  Jenny said softly.  (p. 432)


Jenny looked up quickly.  “Do you believe in good and evil?”
“Oh, yes.  Very strongly.  And I believe that evil sometimes has to be fought – personally.  Hand to hand.  If you care enough to do it.”  (Aba p. 432)


“War and hunting and chasing—that’s all there is.  That’s life Jenny – no one can escape it.”  (Julian p. 447)


“I’m something.  I’m nothing.
I am short.  I am tall.
When you fall at your sport, then I stumble and fall.
I have never been seen yes beneath a new moon.
I thrive in the evening but vanish at noon.
I am light than air, I weigh less than a breath;
Darkness destroys me and light is my death.”
(p. 466-467)


“I never cheat,” Julian said from behind them.  “I practice Gamesmanship – the art of winning games without actually cheating.” (p. 481)


“Know anybody who wants one girlfriend, low maintenance, good sense of humor”
“God, Jenny.”  His arms tightened rushingly.  “Nope, guess you’ll have to put an ad in the classifieds,” he said into her hair.  “Oh, Thorny.  I love you.”  (Jenny and Tom p. 497)


“If you lose, there’s the devil to pay.” (Julian p. 503)

The Kill

 Book_TheForbiddenGame_Vol3B“She and the others had stepped out of the mainstream, into a place where anything could happen and the only rules were their own.”  (p.547)


“Jenny had come through the fire alive – and purified.  She may not be as powerful as Julian, but her will was as strong as his.”  (p. 587)


“I’m as cruel as life,” Julian said.  “As cruel as love.”  (p. 589)


“You’re light, all right – like a flame to a moth.  I told you once that you shouldn’t mess
with forbidden things –  I should have taken my own advice.”  (p.617)


“I am what I want to be,” he said.  “You forgot that– and that was your mistake.” (Julian p. 664)


“I am as strong as I need to be.  I am my only master.”   (Dee, p. 647)


“I love you,” she said.  “You made me fall in love with you.  I don’t care how tall you are or what color your hair is – I care about you.  You make me laugh.  You’re smart.  You’re gentle.  And you’re real, You’re a real person, not some jock with a façade that’s going to fall apart when I get to know him.  I know you already, and I love you, you idiot.  I don’t care what you do with toilet paper.”  (Audrey to Michael p. 681-682)


“I can’t explain the evil that’s out there, but that doesn’t mean I ought to join it.  It doesn’t mean I should give in.” (Jenny p. 686)


“No, I’ll dream another dream,” he said.  “I’ve made up so many things, now I’ll just go into one.  I’ll be part of it.”  (Julian p. 742)


“Nothing really dies as long as it’s not forgotten,” he said.  (Julian p. 742)


“Julian said the world was evil and horrible – remember?  But then he proved himself that it wasn’t.”  (Summer p. 746)

love is a strong emotion. darkness to light, light to darkness. with the simple yet complicated concept shows that every one and each of us deserves to love and be loved. Love all your books anyway. :lol:

This is such a beautiful book and it is definately my favourite- I love the theme of Good and Evil, Light and Darkness, Black and White. Julian p.420: "There is no good and evil, only black and white. But either black or white on its own is boring, Jenny. If you mix them you get so many colours- so many colours..."

***Slight Spoiler Alert***


You forgot one of my very favorites. It still gives me chills every time I read the book, even after almost 20 years and books so read and re-read that they literally fell apart.
"If, someday, Julian should be reborn, she wished him well."

These books were and are my most favorite of all time. When I finished the book my view of Julian changed. He went from being the villain to a hero in my eyes and that made hope for a new book. When I found out that you were going to write a new book, I was so happy. I can't wait. You are MY MOST FAVORITE author ever.

Ever heard the song Snow White Queen by Evanescence? It's perfect for Julian and Jenny!

Omg I love this book it my all time favorite since I read Twilight. The love between two forbidden world it such an amazing thing. I find both Stephanie Meyers and L.J Smith to be amazing outstanding authors. Thou I love More The Forbidden Game more than anything. I would sure luv to see a movie on this series especially since it would put a face to Julian the evil but sexy gorgeous shadow man.. I hope and pray there going be another book to The Forbidden Game where Jenny and Julian finally stay together of course after another harmless game hahahah..
