Kurzbeschreibung

When the young and ambitious Doctor Paul Clément takes a job at a mission hospital on Saint Sébastien he has dreams of finding cures for tropical diseases. What he finds is a place where the black arts are just a way of life. After witnessing the ritualistic murder of a young boy who was allegedly already dead, he is warned never to speak of what he has seen.   Back in Paris, Paul’s attentions turn to studying the nervous system and resuscitation using electricity. Paul is told of patients who have apparently died, been brought back to life, and, whilst they lay between life and death, witnessed what they believed to be Heaven itself. Using forbidden knowledge he swore never to use, he attempts to see what everyone else has seen, but something goes wrong. When Paul returns to the living could it be possible he brings something else back with him, an unspeakable evil so powerful it can never be banished? Is this paranoia, a madness slowly consuming him, or has Doctor Paul Clément witnessed Hell itself…?

4.0 von 5 Sternen Unexpected story, easy reading 25. August 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
If you are fond of a mixture of mystery, history, a pinch of the erotic and sinister, this is your book. It is easy to read and I did enjoy the description of the encounter with the afterlife. The twist about the daemon coming back with the revived patient into this world is even gripping... however, the end is rather too trivial in my opinion. But altogether: fun to read!

4.0 von 5 Sternen A very interesting psychological thriller 28. Juni 2012
Von Jorge A. A. Araujo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
First of all, this is not a masterpiece of literary fiction. There are a lot of flaws, specially in character's development and some moments in the plot that the actions are not at all according with the personality of the characters. But despite these points it's really a very interesting story, it develops from a very commmon report of near death experiences in wich people see a tunnel of light and have a glimpse of what lies beyond. The protagonist starts to catalog these experiences using an eletrical device to make people came back to life (simular to the modern day crash carts), and at some point, in order to validate the research, he decides to take the trip himself. I think at this point the author should have explored more this decision, that seems to me too frivolous and unconvincing. Anyway, when he does it, instead of seeing a tunnel of light and a preview of heaven, he travels to what appears to be hell itself, and comes back a different person, with some lind of evil with him.

To anyone, like me, who is used to read the Max Liebermann's stories (from the same author under the name Frank Tallis), will find in this book a very different way of writing. Paris does not have the same appeal (in the book!) than Vienna in the Liebermann series, and the female protagonist is not at all as interesting as in the other books. This novel has a darker atmosphere, a lot of religious references and has a more crude violence and almost-explicit description of sex scenes, so it's not for imature people at all.

All things considered, it's a small book that worth reading, specially for its originality. I believe the author has much more to offer in the near future.

This was an interesting read, but it was extremely slow to read....It could have been so much better if it wasn't for that....If you are looking for a fast paced thriller that's fun to read, then this isn't for you......
3.0 von 5 Sternen Good Ideas and Descriptions But Hard To Connect With Main Character 9. November 2014
Von Sarah L. Gruwell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
3.5 Stars

This novel is a hard one for me to rate.

On the one hand, it shows the author’s engrossing skills at setting and descriptions. The setting of 1870’s Paris, descriptions of hospitals and churches, details on the emerging field of neurological treatments with electricity, and the pathways of Hell itself are all brought to very vivid life. I would definitely advise some caution, however, when the reader reads the scenes from Hell or the descriptive scenes of demonic possession; the author takes a no-holds-barred approach and brings the definition of “hell” to sickeningly bright life.

And once the story really got rolling, the reader is taken on an intriguing journey as a man tries to find redemption and fight the evil that he himself brought into the world. Once Paul is possessed and starts to show the symptoms, the reader is kept engaged by trying to anticipate Paul’s next moves and finds themselves sucked in, sometimes despite themselves (thinking the exorcism stuff here), reading page and page to find the resolution to this terror in late 1800’s France.

Yet, the author makes a glaring error that I found myself having a hard time getting over. At the start of the novel, there is a lot of “told” scenes, Paul describing how he ended up in the Caribbean, starting his career in resuscitation experiments, and his budding medical career. As a result, I had a hard time connecting with him as his possession and struggle against evil escalated. I was kept intrigued enough to want to finish the book and see how everything played out. But I felt almost an invisible wall between Paul and I that kept me from really caring about him as an individual.

This book has some very intriguing story ideas, and the author knows what he’s doing when describing the setting for his characters. Yet, deciding to start the book out with telling his readers what’s happening rather than having them experience the events left me cold to the main character and his ultimate status as an individual. I’m giving this book a 3.5 stars but rounding down to a 3; if I can’t connect with the main person telling this story, then I’m not connecting with the book itself. Not sure if I’d recommend the book, but I think I’m intrigued enough with the descriptive nature of the author’s work and the interesting story ideas. Who knows? I’m going to go out of my way to hunt down more works, but if one fell in my lap, I’d probably read more.

Note: Book received for free via Good Reads First Reads program in exchange for honest review.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Descent into Darkness... 20. Oktober 2014
Von Rachel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I received a copy of this book free through Goodreads Firstreads.
This book definitely fits the bill of psychological suspense. It is not particularly action-packed, and there are a few slower parts, but ultimately an excellent read. The last half of the book was particularly hard to put down. I was somewhat repulsed by Clement's descent into depravity, and some of the descriptions got a little in depth, although I will give Tallis credit, I appreciate that the descriptions were not as graphic as they could have been. I also felt that Tallis paints a vivid and realistic picture of the kind of daily battle and consequences that can result from falling into the obsessions and addictions Clement became entangled with.

The Forbidden follows the work of Dr. Paul Clement as the man of science walks a thin line between medical advancement and dabbling with the dark side, and his descent into madness as a consequence of his failure to believe in the power of the unseen and unexplainable. I think the book sends a strong message that just because we cannot see the realm of the spiritual, its power cannot be discounted, and there are serious consequences for treating it lightly, or being haughty enough to believe that we can harness or control the spiritual to bend it to our own purposes. And, that once we are involved with darkness, as long as we have faith, there is hope for redemption, but even still, it is unlikely that we will escape unscarred.

In the words of a former teacher, dabbling with darkness will take you farther than you want to go, keep you longer than you want to stay, and cost you more than you are willing to pay.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Suspenseful page turner!! 2. Juni 2014
Von SkullQueenWriter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I won this as a free ARC giveaway first reads and it was far from disappointing!

It's like Dr. Frankenstein meets The Exorcist in the concept of exactly how much "do you", the audience, really know about God and The Devil? Do you really believe in possession of ones soul or existence of evil spirits? What if you witnessed an exorcism, would you still believe?

In this suspenseful mind gripping tale of The Forbidden, Dr. Paul Clement witnesses an unspeakable act of horror which he is never to mention. In his trip back to Paris he begins to study resuscitation through electricity. Shortly after, he becomes fascinated with people who have had near death experiences and witnessed some type of Heaven. But the "forbidden curiosity" takes over and he births a nightmare that will not only affect him but the very lives he touches. Can Dr. Paul Clement extinguish this hellish nightmare before it takes over himself and others? Will Paul be able to save his soul and the soul of a young girl's before it's too late???
