From the Back Cover
The time has come to make a stand.
Gray Weathersby and his group of rebels are determined to bring down the Franconian Order. But they may be too late. The Order is closer than ever to its ultimate goal—building an unstoppable army—and every generation of Forgeries is more sophisticated, harder to detect, and deadlier than the one before.
Now the rebels have joined forces with new allies, the Expats. But when even the most familiar faces can't be trusted, Gray will have to tread carefully if he wants to succeed—or survive.

I was anxious to read the final installment after being torn to pieces by the end of the second installment, Frozen, but had faith Erin Bowman would set things right. I had my wish fulfilled, though first I had to read through more gut wrenching scenes and hair yanking suspense, but the ending was a balm for those shattered pieces.
In a world where trust in another could lead to a death sentence, Gray Weathersby clings to those he loves and risks everything to expose the truth which divides the nation. Forged becomes an example of the challenge to humanity when faced with no clear moral answer, and the fortitude of unbreakable bonds between family, friends, and lovers.
This books is fast paced (I finished it in one reading as there was never a good stopping point) with the perfect amount of suspense, humor, and endearing moments. But the true strength of this book can be found in the characters. The entire cast is so well-written, each with their own unique voice and set of quirks, that they linger even after completing the book. I could write more, but there would be spoilers.
If you love books full of suspense, adventure, moments where you want to scream because everything is about to fall apart-then read the Taken trilogy. If you love books with characters who are raw and real and flawed, then read the Taken trilogy. If you love books which present challenges to the human spirit, then read the Taken trilogy. If you loved Hunger Games-read the Taken trilogy. And if you love that big fat thing called cosmic irony-then this series is for you!
-I loved the setting, which is a world that has been devastated by war and split into two parts, West and East. The little towns, like Bone Harbor were so interesting to read about and figure out what secrets are hidden there and how these places are going to affect the story.
- The characters in this book are some of my favorites I have read about this year. They are so relatable and it’s so easy to understand their emotions and the hardships their going through, but at the same time nothing can prepare you for the emotional journey they are on. My favorite characters are definitely Gray, Bree, and Clipper. They are just so unique and fun to read about. It’s also interesting how Erin Bowman can so easily make these characters seem so real. The decisions they make and the emotions they portray during certain conflicts are decisions I feel I would make if I was them.
-Overall this book was amazing from the first word to the last word. This book is definitely an emotional rollercoaster, but in my opinion that’s what makes a book good. I find a book boring when I feel the same emotion that I always fell when I read, happy. When a book is truly good, in my opinion, it makes me feel all the emotions whether that’s sad, angry, or happy. This book pulled me into the story and made me mirror the emotions and pain that the characters were feeling. I LOVED IT!
I cannot say enough good things about this book it was just too good for me to even comprehend.
I highly recommend this book to any YA lover or anyone who wants a trilogy to begin their reading journey. It’s so good everyone needs to read this trilogy!!
