Another great book in this series! There is adventure, suspense, and mystery mixed in here. I think it would make a great tv series. The books have a sort of serial format :) I loved reading about the characters so much, and am glad for a rest before the next one!

Received from Author in exchange for honest review.

I've read Discern (first book in Mosaic Chronicles) a while ago and really enjoyed it. I loved diving back to this world. I especially love magic system in these book. Only fourth child in the family has magic, that is elemental in nature, and are called Aretes. There is even a university for Aretes.😊 Forsake is set before the events of Mosaic Chronicles.

Nicole is in the last year of high school. She has one really good friend Lizzy. They are fr

Andrea Pearson has smashed it again !!! If you have never read any of her books then read this and then all the Mosaic Chronicles. This prequel had all the hallmarks of Andrea Pearson's talent to make you feel as if you are a fly on the wall. You are able to experience all the plots and places that become so vivid in your mind, then you get to feel every emotion of the characters as if they was your own. The main characters part is always told in the first person which I personally prefer, then ...more

Demon dogs, prophecies, old castles, good and bad ghosts, magical powers. Totally awesome!

In this entry into the Mosaic universe, wich shows us a younger Nicole, still in high school, all the elements we've come to love in a book by Andrea Pearson are in place. The storytelling is top notch, the suspense slowly builds to some rather explosive action sequences, and there is some great merging of dimentions in this alternate reality where magical powers is normal. Nicole remains a strong character

Wow! I was very impressed with the story. Andrea has a great imagination! Nicole was ignored by her family because she was different. Being the 4th child she has special magical abilities that her mother seems disappointed in. But when Nicole is contacted by a strange woman who says she must help protect her friend Lizzy, Nicole isn't so sure if she will be up to the task. As days and nights progress Nicole decides that she will do anything to guarantee her best friend Lizzy will live to full fi ...more

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. Andrea Pearson creates a richly conceived universe of magic and a multilayered plot sure to see us through more than this one novel with anticipation. Nicole comes of magical age amidst murder and mystery. With no support from her family and the life of her best friend at stake she has little but her own ingenuity at her disposal as she finds herself fighting mystical enemies and fleeing from one continent to ...more

Forsake, the prequel to the Mosaic Chronicles is a fun read, exciting and very well presented. Filled with magic, hounds trying to tear apart Nicole, a golem and a dragon trying to save Nicole, and a Magician. All add up to preparing Nicole for her future life and taking care of her best friend, whose role in the future will be immeasurable. Grab this book, curl up on the couch and spend exciting hours wi

I really enjoyed this book. Best friends since
grade school, Nicole and Lizzie are excited to be going to the same university in the fall where they can develop their latent magical abilities.

Nicole finds out, however, that her best friend’s life is in jeopardy and undertakes a journey to save her friends life. Along the way she starts to wonder about the motives of another classmate who is helping her.

An exciting page-turning read that I recommend to one and all. It sets the stage for the futur

Forsake is the prequel to the Mosaic Chronicles. It sets up the upcoming series set in the world with Aretes, but focusing on Lizzie this time. I could barely put the book down, finishing it in just two sittings. It is full of action and is very well-written. I only noticed a handful of mistakes (usually a short missing word so it was easy to tell what was meant). I very highly recommend Forsake and the entire Mosaic Chronicles series! This one can be read alone or either before or after reading ...more

Great action series with wonderful characters

This series is best read in order. The character development and plot twists combine to create friends and heros you'd like to meet in person. The action becomes more intense and each adventure helps the characters to grow and bond. It's fun to learn about the abilities each person develops and works to master. Clean and wholesome reading appropriate to young adults on up.

Wonderfully written, easy to follow, smooth flowing read with unpredictable surprises around every corner and twists that keep you captivated from the very beginning. Scenes so realistic you can almost feel the adrenaline pumping and heart pounding as the characters face danger. Relatable characters and personalities that show through as the tale unfolds. Andrea did an excellent job bringing this read to life.

Such strong characters with vivid storytelling. Nicole was a Arete and her friend Lizzie was a Arete also but Nicole hadn't come into her powers yet. They bummed around together but unknown to both their lives will change in the coming years. In arrives a man/dog to upset everything that had already happened but Nicole had her memories erased. Good reading book! I received a complimentary copy of this book.

I loved getting to know Nicole and Lizzie at the beginning. This prequel to the Mosaic Chronicles was perfect in giving teasers and information to guide me into the M C and Lizzie's series. Kissing and snuggling are the most PDAs in this book and with no swearing, made this book perfect. A great read for teens and adults alike, this book has tons of adventure and the lengths to which a best friend will go to save one she loves.

I have read many books by Andrea Pearson and have enjoyed each one.
Forsaken is the prequel of an awesome series, Mosaic Chronicles.
This was fantasy, suspense, and paranormal romance all rolled into one. Wonderfully written. Beautifully detailed. Excellent character development. Each and every character was illustrated masterfully.

This book again took me a little to get into and catch onto the storyline. However It was a good fast read. I think I need to read them in order that might help catch up faster. But It didn't take long. She know her fantasy and what I like is that her fantasy stories stay within the guidelines of her fantasy. They don't waver in there rules. I really like that fact in her books.

Great prequel to the Mosaic Chronicles Series. It's a fast paced thrill ride nearly around the world. New monsters, new challenges and a very interesting explanation as to why it is not referenced in the series. You can read it at any time, you don't have to start here. But this is a great book. Loved it!

I read this book after I had read the first 5 books of the series.
I like the book, though I don't know if it gives some spoilers of the other books I have not read yet because it describes some of the abilities to have one of the main characters.
Considering all I think is a book worth reading it.

I enjoyed this book.This ties in Nicole's series and Lizzie]s new series. It was fast paced and made me nervous. It was interesting to see Nicole's life from a new perspective. I am not sure if Alexander is a good character or not. I am glad I had read many of Andrea's other titles before I read this one. I was able to make connections. It was a quick read.

Great adventures to look forward too!

This book was wonderful! I loved reading how Nicole restarted and the adventures she had to go through to keep Lizzie safe. Nicole and her boyfriend went to England first and then.... Will you need to read this book to find out what happens it's exciting and will keep you up reading late. So enjoy!

From celebrating her “Restart”, when an Arete’s magic starts to function, to adventuring to save the world, Nicole is going to have her hands full with the adventure of a lifetime. We are lucky to travel along. This is one wild ride of fun in a book. Highly recommended.

Good story but lacked depth in the characters. I had trouble connecting with them. But I liked the story for the most part.

I don't know how Nicole kept going as she traveled back and forth to Europe a couple of times, not to mention the stress she was under from being chased by shape-shifting hounds who were trying to destroy her . . . yes, I do. For the love of her best friend Lizzie. This is a great read!
