Publisher's 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.

Super value!

I really enjoyed this trilogy. Interesting characters and a few plot twists that are fresh for the genre.

it's ok

it's an OK story with an OK performance. I think 3 books is a little long to tell the story or flesh out a bit more of the story beats. you can see the twists a mile away though.

Protagonist is a moron.

Plain and simple main character is an idiot. You think he'd pick up a thing or two from his wife since she's so intelligent, didn't help that the narrator makes him sound pathetic. Was very hard for me to finish the first book I'll try to get through the others. The MC just isn't that likeable imo.

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

What the FEZ...?

I wrote a much longer review but amazon would not publish it because I wrote, "What did the author use FEZ instead of the F-word?"

Well, apparently you can't spell out the F word in a review. Anyway, I just could not finish this series due to the terrible story. It just kept making less and less sense.

----from my initial review----

One of the characters appears to have schizophrenia - one minute yelling the next minute calm. You'll see who I'm talking about as you read. But the dialog with this schizophrenic character will throw you off because no one except a wimp would react meekly to what this schizophrenic character says.

There was a spot at the beginning where I THINK the main character was ok with someone else having sex with his wife. I can't tell if that happened, but she got a visit from the schizophrenic character and he gave her something of value for no real apparent reason. It left me with an uncomfortable feeling..

Another female character sounds like Alan Rickman doing Hans Gruber doing William Clay (in Die Hard). Very distracting.

The scenario where the main character is "on the run" seems very unlikely for a tight-knit spaceship.

Story and narration hooks you in quick!

The headline sums it up. And this story begins an entire universe of stories. Highly recommend!

Not what I was expecting

Had good expectations about this storyline but the twist kinda killed it for me. Just not what I was wanting at the time.
As far as the author and narrator, it was good and I have no complaints.

Great Trilogy!

This trilogy ticks every box on my list. Written beautifully; characters written well; narration is superb. Although....one tiny pet peeve regarding Jonathan Davis's narration--I would love his female characters to sound as intelligent as they're written.
The story is compelling and moves at a satisfying rate. And, during this volatile political time, I very much enjoyed living vicariously through Sheriff Duke trying to rid the Earth of the sadistic, self-absorbed, sociopathic King.

AWESOME!!!!

This is an excellent series that had me captivated through my many hours/days of commuting. It's a great story with plenty of background info on the important characters. Moving on to the rest of the series.

Great premise and characters.

Story is very believable. Love the characters and drive. But too much killing, not enough solutions.

A very engaging story

Overall it was a very engaging story and one that would translate well to a movie or tv series. The story gets only one thing blatantly wrong and that is the distance to Proxima Centauri. Proxima is 4.2 light years, not 12. The sheriff is a classic fish out of water but adapts quickly. His wife, however, makes bad decisions with good intentions that result in good people getting killed and the sheriff is at times too indecisive and learns the hard way that you do what you must when bad people do bad things and think they have power over you because you are weak. Next up, the other side of the story with bad things happening at the colony.
