This book was actually a school assignment. when i started reading, i was captivated. the book started out with Chloe and her present situation. Then it moved on to Aulus and his situation in the goverment. For me this was slightly boring. But then it picked up and went to Chloe, then bothe of them. The boredom in the middle of the book was well worth the wait for the end, i couldn't set the book down. I think that The Forgotten Daughter was a very good book, and i recommend it to you.
