The Turning by Phil Price


He had escaped the horrors of the last few months, starting a new life, with his new family.

His life was returning to normal, scars healing. Until they found him, taking his loved ones back through the doorway.

To their world. To their horrors.

Now Jake must follow, hoping it’s not too late.

Will he reach them in time?

Before they are turned against him.

My thoughts:

The Turning is book two of the Forsaken Series but read well as a stand-alone. I think the reader would gain a little more from the characters by reading book one first, but the story was complete, enjoyable and make full sense.

Jake will stop at nothing to save his wife and baby who are trapped in another dimension, a dimension plagued with evil beings and most notably, vampires. I loved Jake’s strength and determination, and was totally invested in his perilous journey.

I felt tense as the metaphorical ticking clock sped up, pushing this tale into an all or nothing situation – eek! I loved that I, as the reader, firmly rooted for Jake and his father to save the day. There is a book three – if you want to know if all ended well, you’ll have to read book two – haha.

I’d describe The Turning as fantasy-horror. The antagonists were dark and cruel. I felt fearful and tense as Jake stepped through the portal where his big rescue mission began.

Another fab instalment in the Forsaken Series! If you enjoy the fantasy genre and far-away lands through portals leading to mysterious dimensions, then this is your series!

Thanks so much for reading. 💟💟💟
