Lilly and Shep had grown up together, neighbors and friends, and as they grew the bond grew until at the age of eighteen they knew they were soul mates. What they didn't know was that they were refugees from another world and they would be called back to rescue their mothers. A Broken Forever is the dual story of two life long playmates raised together, one set bonded and married, the other set promised to each other but not bonded, torn apart by love. One man's obsession with a woman he cannot have leads a whole country into turmoil. Angie Merriam does a wonderful job of weaving the world of Earth and Neveah together and making them seem somewhat alike. There are similarities in the stories of the two different generations, yet neither generation has learned not to sacrifice themselves to save a loved one.
A Broken Forever is scheduled to be the first in a series of books set in the world of Neveah. While this does end on a bit of a cliffhanger, it does seem to be a pretty natural stopping point in the story. The characters of Lilly and Shep are so naive and innocent it is refreshing. In fact, most of the people in Neveah are naive and innocent, more so than the regular world of today, and so it makes it a comforting book to relax into and read. There is one pretty detailed assault scene that might be a little graphic for younger readers, but for the most part it is pretty well written for young adults and adults.
