I have received this book as an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review

Marc Timms loves to write. He started at an early age, studied the art of writing during his school years, but only recently decided to publish and share his work with the world. His first book Shock went straight to number 1 in several categories. Well done, Marc!  🥂

Forgotten – The Revelations – Summary

Forgotten – The Revelations is the third book in the Forgotten Series. It features writer Emily Floyd, a best-selling mystery writer. In the first book of the series, Forgotten: – The Quest, she starts looking into a series of cases of unidentified women – all strangled.

Book 2, Forgotten – The Return continues this quest, making some startling discoveries.

In Book 3, Forgotten – The Revelations, she becomes a target of the killer, which seems to be on a mission to destroy all mentions and evidence against him.

Like the previous books in the series, the end of the book leaves the readers with many questions, enticing them to read the next book in the series. The list of books provided makes is clear that there is a book 4 and 5 coming soon. Which means that we will still have to wait a while to discover the identity of the killer.

You can’t read this as stand-alone novel, as the opening chapter will make no sense without the background story of the previous book. I will say the same about Book 2 in the series as well.

What did I love?

I love Emma Floyd, the main character. Through her we get good insights about the process involved in writing a book – plot ideas and development and the whole thinking process.

“Emma could see that. At times— like now— the thought of a secluded spot to write appealed to her. Now, she had murderers chasing her and mysteries to solve. She lost her focus on writing. On the bright side, she would have more than enough source material to keep her fingers moving.”

Marc Timms. FORGOTTEN – The Revelation (Kindle Locations 164-166). Kindle Edition.

The author manages to build suspense through a logical series of events. The way Emma discovers clues and evidence makes sense, and one discovery leads to another (through some solid investigative work.) Although, the author does produce some unexpected surprises!

And not so much?

You can classify this book as a novella (any book longer than a novelette and shorter than a novel) or novelette (between 1,000 and 7,500 words). It is hard to say, as I do not have the actual word count. The books are all short (about 77 printed pages). Personally, I would have preferred to have all of them combined in one book because every book in the series leaves you with so many unanswered questions.

Having said that, I do believe it takes considerable skill to successfully write this type of book.

Should you read Forgotten – The Revelations ?

Yes. The series so far, as well as Book 3, spins a gripping tale, and we root for Emma all the way in her quest to find the thriller.

Recommended for readers who like novels about serial killers, crime and murder mysteries and quick reads. Also check out my review of Elevator Pitch, about terrorists targeting the elevators in random buildingsin New York!

The Forgotten series, is a series of novellas, not full-length books. Do you like these type of short reads, or would you have liked the series rather in a full-length novel? We would love to hear from you. Please share with us in the comments?

Hi! I am Susan

Welcome to my adventure

Why Read or Rot?

I have started reading at the age of four. I can remember how I often read under the covers with a flashlight when I was supposed to sleep.

During my early school years, we visited the library once a week. I couldn’t pick out my new book fast enough! By the end of the period, I would have finished it already, leaving me with nothing to read for the rest of the week!

Growing up, Fridays was the highlight of my week. Dad would pack the whole family into the car, and off we go! You guessed right – to the library! We were a family of readers.

In my adult years, I’ve developed a variety of interests like technology, photography, gardening and even writing. But reading was and will always be a part of my life!

Reading for me is like breathing. If I cannot read, my soul will quietly rot away
