I wasn’t sure what to make of this book when I read the description. The first part made me imagine a book about a cop investigating Vatican officials who somehow involved themselves with criminal activities. That would have made for something interesting. And then this line followed:

“This leads to the overthrow of world religions, a shocking finale and the second coming of Jesus Christ.”

I was like, “Excuse me?!”

I should have just stopped right there and passed, but my curiosity got the best of me. Curse my curiosity because this book turned out to be quite… bad.

Forgotten Word follows Zena McGrath, an Irish lady working for the Interpol. She gets assigned to the case regarding priests dying mysteriously and is sent to the Vatican to investigate. Cardinal Donatello chalks it up to exorcism and convinces her to stay out of it. Another priest dies inexplicably in New York, Zena gets called on to the case again, and everything goes downhill from there.

Very early into the book I realized that this wasn’t going to be the crime mystery I hoped it was going to be. The moment it started mentioning the appearance of a demon, I knew it was going to be something else. The book had a supernatural edge to it, an aspect that is kept throughout the entire book and was cranked up to crazy levels of maximum towards the end. The investigation about the deaths is really just an instrument to move the events over; the real goal of the book is to convince you to stay religious.

To make matters worse, the writing in the book is atrocious. Never mind the fact that it’s written in present tense (this actually doesn’t bother me at all). The whole book is very robotic, making it boring very quickly.

This was a good, interesting plot. It was let down by the writing. It is difficult to write in the present tense and I find it unnatural to read it. There were many grammar errors and sometimes the tenses were very confused. I think this could be a really good book with some editing. Having said that I did persevere to the end, which I don't usually do , because I found the plot intriguing.

Similar to Dan Brown's Angels and Demons, and just as good. A real page-turner. Sam Jane Brown is a natural.

With the Catholic Church as the background, this book opens in a very chilling manner.

I was glued to this book from page one.

If you like white knuckle suspenseful reads, you do not want to miss this book.

I saw that a few people commented that this book is written in the present tense. It is but I don’t think it in any ways detracts from the meat of this story.

Eerie, suspenseful and fast paced the author takes us down a twisting and turning road.

There’s a lot of action and a plot that will have you reflecting long after you are done reading.

Definitely recommend this book.

I seldom post a negative review, but I will not read a book by Sam Jane Brown again. I wanted to read an entertaining mystery, not a book with an obvious, poorly written religious agenda. I kept reading hoping the book would get better but this was truly a disappointing read.

Was this author beaten with the Baltimore Catechism as a child? Oh boy……..I am so very thankful I downloaded this book when it was free. If I had paid money for it, even 99 cents, I would have been ticked off. With that said, I persevered to the end, hoping with each ‘turn’ of the page it would improve. It did not. I could have ignored the grammatical errors if the plot was interesting but it was not. It was silly.

I can’t begin to count the amount of times I had a vision of Flip Wilson, in drag as Geraldine, announcing “Whoa! The devil made me do it, honey!”

After reading Sam Jane Brown's debut novel 'Forgotten Word', I believe there are two different ways to view her work. First, you can look at this as a complete work of fiction and realize that Sam is quite a talented author and has created an intriguing and compelling story about the battle between Jesus and Satan. The second viewpoint would be from someone that believes in Jesus and knows that unseen battles happen between good and evil everyday and most people do not ever see or even know about them. For those that align with the latter, this is an extreme case in point but an excellent reminder that Jesus is real and that the Bible is quite often forgotten. Regardless of the viewpoint you take, this is quite an exceptional book and I am looking forward to Sam Jane Brown's second novel.

As I read this book, I was anxious to see how it would end. I was often confused as to what was going on. I felt no fear as I was reading about demons. I was also very disappointed in the ending. I'm a Christian but don't believe the same as the author about the end times.
