The Forbidden Game by L.J. Smith

This book has been sitting on my shelf for a while. I was given this book as a gift from a close friend (yes, my friend knows me that well that they give me books as gifts, got to love her). This was just collecting dust. I wanted something new to read so I decided to finally read this book.

When Jenny buys a game for her boyfriend, Tom, she finds herself inexplicably drawn to the guy behind the counter. There is something mysteriously alluring about Julian's pale eyes and bleached-blond hair. And when he places the Game into her hands, she knows their connection is becoming deeper. But as Jenny and her six friends begin to play the Game at Tom's birthday celebration, a night of friends and fun quickly turns into a night of terror and obsessive love. Because the Game isn't just a game - it's the seven friends' new reality, where Julian reigns as the Prince of the Shadows. One by one the friends must confront their phobias to win the Game. To lose the Game is to lose their lives. And that is only the beginning...

I really enjoyed this book. L.J. Smith is just a fabulous writer. I liked the way she wrote the third person where it brought the story to life like in J.K. Rowling's books. It was filled with so much action and adventure, with mystery thrown into every page. Specifically when the characters were thrown into the game. This reminded me a little of the movie Jumangi with Robin Williams. If you're a avid fan of Sci-Fi I think you'll enjoy this book.
