Summary

Contains books 1-3 of The Forgotten.

Forgotten, book 1 

Sheriff Hayden Duke was born on the Pilgrim, and he expects to die on the Pilgrim, like his father, and his father before him. That's the way things are on a generation starship centuries from home. He's never questioned it. Never thought about it. And why bother? Access points to the ship's controls are sealed, the systems that guide her automated and out of reach. It isn't perfect, but he has all he needs to be content. 

Until a malfunction forces his engineer wife to the edge of the habitable zone to inspect the damage. Until she contacts him, breathless and terrified, to tell him she found a body, and it doesn't belong to anyone on board. Until he arrives at the scene and discovers both his wife and the body are gone. The only clue? A bloody handprint beneath a hatch that hasn't opened in hundreds of years. Until now. 

Forsaken, book 2 

Sheriff Hayden Duke expects to die any second. He's already been attacked by demonic aliens, rogue soldiers, and even the people he thought were his friends. 

They took his wife. He has to find her. He has to survive. Another second. Another breath. He can never give up. He can never rest until she's back in his arms. They'll try to stop him, but it won't be as easy as they think. A new hope is rising in an old world. 

Unforgiven, book 3 

Sheriff Hayden Duke has got a long way to go before he can rest. How can he when the entire world is under siege by demonic aliens and a brutal thug who calls himself King? 

It's an unknown and powerful threat that may be responsible for the end of humankind. The road may be long. The odds may be bad. The stakes may be high. But you can’t keep a good Sheriff down.

A great beginning to an extended series

What a tour de force!!? We have here a lone hero struggling to recover his wife after her kidnapping, only to find that there is a whole lot more to the issue that needs to be addressed if a decent life is to be had afterwards. There is much action, and the story romps along at a very good pace. It's well worth the listen, and this is just the introduction to a longer series that continues in the Forgotten Earth series. I found that I couldn't put it down. I'll be getting the following series as there is much to do to make matters right at the end of the trilogy. The only downsides, to my mind, were the occasional expletive, and the high body count of the hero's accomplices, some who leave you saddened as they deserved a better chance in a disfunctional world. I do commend the recording company's decision to issue this trilogy under a single cover - I find it a very attractive offer. (NB: I noticed that the author puts Proxima Centauri over 7 lightyears from Earth, when it is 4.3 ly away.) Jonathan Davis's voice and acting/reading style suit these action-thriller stories. I first met him presenting some of the Star Wars books, and also the Destiny's Crucible series. As with these, so with this trilogy, Davis seems to get into the story, and it comes out the better for it.

Oh it is bad - bit of a spoiler alert in my review

I always get puzzled by high ratings when my experience is basically the opposite. First the caveat, I have only just finished book 1, BUT THAT WAS A STRUGGLE :-) If you listen to the example you will understand my caps. I guess it was the way the story is written, but the narrator just spends his time shouting and Oh My Word, I wish Natalie had died in chapter 1 so we had a different interpretation. Then the story slowly morphs into Doom, but the twist is there are 2 adversaries- clever. So we basically have John Mc Clane making his way through the Doom slowly getting all his allies killed, plus the enemy of course. Then all of the sudden we get an oasis of a story!! And that bit got me interested, before and after that, it is just running and shooting. And if you have seen Doom, you know how boring that is, great game lousy to watch. And yes, I will listen to the next book, after all it's included in the package.

The Forgotten Trilogy

This is almost like like Event Horizon meets Alien. And that’s just book one. Where the ship ends up is a sort of post apocalyptic nightmare....This book kept me guessing until the final page. Highly, highly recommended if you enjoy Sci-Fi Horror. This is worth every minute. I’d read these on Kindle and Jonathan Davis brings Sheriff Duke to life. Hell, he brings the whole thing to life. Think, Kenobi, Maul, Shadow of the Wind. Books where be truly shines. He does that here. Every character unique, I could go on, but I won’t. 10/10

Whoa! What a thrill ride!

There's a new Sheriff in town, and he has his work cut out for him. M.R. Forbes expertly blends a dystopian sci-fi epic with the old West in this fast-paced adventure. As usual, Forbes keeps you guessing, while creating characters you can't help but root for. The audio narration is professionally done with only a few spots where the edits are obvious, but not to the point of taking away from the story. This is a thrill-a-minute epic that is well worth the time!

I mean.....how can you not?!

Inhaled this trilogy. How can you not root for the Sheriff? Very excited to read the rest! Hell's Rejects was my first M.R. Forbes series so I tend to favor Jeff Hayes for the narration however J.D. did his thing all the same (tilts hat brim) Mr. M.R. is one of my new favorite Authors! Yay! I LOVE finding new Authors <3 Now excuse me while I go purchase the rest of his works (^_^;)
