The Forbidden Game

Original book art for L.J. Smith's Forbidden Game Series, book 1, "The Hunter"

I got this series when I was 11 and I still read it over and over.

Julian The Shadowman was so sexy and dangerous. If you liked Henson's "Labyrinth" then you'd love this series. <3

It was THIS cover of Julian that I fell in love with. Seems that Julian influenced my recently love with another very similar character (a witch) with a similar arc & last scene. Every fan fell in love with the hottie bad boy (also with blue eyes) and we all cried he deserved love

My all-time favorite series. It so needs more fan art. If I was a millionaire, I'd totally pay to have it turned into a manga, anime, movie or television show.

I think he looks a bit old here... But I love the picture!
Love the books, but I hated Jenny though. I would most definitly had dumped her stupid boyfriend (forgot the name... Tom?) and go with Julian!

Oh no doubt! Jenny would have been more likable if she weren't portrayed as so perfect and so submissive to her dumbass boyfriend, Tom. That irked me to no end.

Julian had a lot of character growth. Why give him such a great arc when it's all for naught, and he still doesn't get the girl?
