The Turning by Phil Price is the second book in The Forsaken series. I wrote about the first book, The Unknown a few months ago. The first book is brilliant so I am so pleased Phil asked me to review this one too.

The Turning by Phil Price – The blurb

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.


The Turning by Phil Price – review

The Turning picks up pretty much where The Unknown leaves off. Jack and his new family are home and settling in to their new life. Unfortunately their past comes back to haunt them and Jake’s family are taken. Once again Jake has to go back to the other world and try rescue his family.

In my review of the first book I did mention the story jumping around a lot at first to set the scene which needed to happen but was a bit confusing. The Turning doesn’t do that as it isn’t needed so it was much easier to get in to it straight away. The story instantly pulls you in and keeps you reading right up until the very last page. It is full of suspense, plot twists, romance and bromance, comedy and a cliff hanger ending. I love that the original characters are all in it as well as some new characters too. The Turning is not a stand alone book, you will need to read The Unknown first to fully understand it. Whilst it is a horror / mystery novel it isn’t too scary if you are a bit of a wimp like me.

The only complaint I have is that I need the next book to come out as soon as possible so I can find out what happens next!
