The Forbidden Game

on 16 August 2010. Posted in Sneak Peeks

thumb_Julian_and_Jenny-SpringA sneak peek into the haunting epic of Jenny Thornton and Julian, the youngest and most beautiful creature from the Shadow World. Julian, exotic and uncanny, with hair as white as frost and electric blue eyes, mesmerizes Jenny at first sight. But she quickly discovers that he is born of a race that is completely evil, and that his only desire is to have dominion over her, body and soul. In order to win her submission he seems willing to go to any length—but Jenny has a mind of her own. (From the book The Forbidden Game.)

Out of all of LJ Smith's books The Forbidden Game is my favourite by far. I have never read a book that has made me fall madly in love with the baddie before and still have those feeling nearly 20 years later. Julian is delicious and I seriously hope they never make a tv series or movie on this series as I don't want my images of the characters (especially Julian) to be ruined. It wouldn't do them justice. Oh and my surname is Thornton too so I liked that.

There is no words to describe my love for this book. I've made all my friends read it and they love it too. Ive become sooo attached to Julian and when he died I was heartbroken (I cried) and now I hear that there might be a fourth book and he will come back. I actually starting acting like a prepubescent 13 year old lol. I'm looking forward to the next book and I hope it comes out soon!!! :F

*****SPOILER ALERT****** I absolutely LOVE my copy of The Forbidden Game series which was from the nineties. It was a omnibus I guess because all three were in one, supposedly a collectors edition. It got stolen but I remembered all the details and when I bought the newest ones they didn't really match up detail wise. I guess they were modernized. Great story still though I would've liked it if Jenny had ended up with Julian.

Is there any chance there will be a movie for this fantastic book, like for what the movie industry did for the hunger games ?

I love this trilogy. You have amazing talent that i see in few authors. I would like it so much if you wrote a sequel *SPOILER ALERT!!!* But i think that Julian should come back, after all there wouldn't have been a first book without him.

I read these books as a teenager and I loved them! I may just have to re read them again. This would be an awesome movie series..Hint hint Hollywood!! I too fell in love with Julian and secretly wanted Jenny to be with him. To those who have not read this series, I highly suggest you do!

I love the variety of characters potrayed in this novel. After the Night World Series, this was my next book that my heart was set on. Perhaps create a sequel to this novel? :D If there's one thing I would like to shout out is JULIAN IS WICKEDLY COOL! :lol:

I'm not even fully done with the book but i had to find out if she went with Julian! i don't know why i am so upset about her not being with him but i am! I read dark visions and LOVED it so i figured this would be like that, but still its a great book, i hope she makes a sequel to "the kill"!

I've re-read these books until my copies look like something the dog chewed on. I've been babying them so that they lasted over the years. I can't wait until this new book comes out. I was so upset when Julian died. I am so thrilled that a new book is coming out!

I absolutely LOVED all three books of the Forbidden Game, but the ending was so sad, please make a sequel for this book and if possible could Julian and Jenny be together(as a couple) because they obviously have feelings for each other (even though Jenny is trying to deny her feelings for Julia) LOVED THE BOOKS & PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE MAKE A SEQUEL WITH JULIAN AND JENNY EVENTUALLY BEING A COUPLE. you are an amazing author!!

I can see that I'm one of many fans that cried when Julian died and then when I heard you were writing a sequel I about died and went to heaven! I can't wait to read it!!!

I am 31 years old this year and I wanted to say that The Forbidden Game Trilogy is my favorite book from L.J Smith.

I read them when I was about 14 years old and I love Julian so much! I did not have anyone to discuss it with then(I am not living in the States), which was sad but at the same time, I could keep him all to myself. :D

I love the story so much to the extent of not returning the books to the library, instead I paid a fine to keep the books with me! :P What to do? During 1998, online shopping and internet was not so advanced.

I will like to thank the author for creating such a wonderful and in-depth character that will always be part of my memories!
