The one missing person he can’t find

is the one who matters the most.

Private Investigator Jax Rodriguez has been searching for his brother, Diego, for twenty years. When he stumbles upon another lead, he makes an agonizing decision—he will follow this last trail until it grows cold, and then he will marry the woman he loves and abandon his quest once and for all.

Artist Mikayla Grant is terrified of losing another person close to her, but she has to let Jax go after his brother. Given the secrecy surrounding Diego’s disappearance, clearly Jax is heading into danger. When all contact with him is abruptly cut off, can Mikayla trust that God’s promise to never leave or forsake Jax will be enough to bring him safely home, or does she need to take matters into her own hands?

As Jax attempts to survive the dangerous streets of Caracus, Venezuela and then face the myriad of unknown threats in the El Yunque Rainforest in Puerto Rico, he is not the only one following his brother’s trail.

A ruthless drug lord bent on revenge is using all his resources to discover the truth about what happened to Diego. If Jax can’t stay one step ahead of his pursuer, then he, like his brother, could disappear and never be heard from again.

My Review

Davison, Sara. Forged. White Salmon, WA: Mountain Brook Ink, 2022.

Forged is the fourth, and I believe final, book in Sara Davison’s The Night Guardians Series. There is some character and plot overlap between the titles but I don’t think it is necessary to read the previous books before reading Forged. Obviously you will be missing some information if you don’t, but I think you can still enjoy the story. 

Forged focuses on Jax’s search for his brother whom he hasn’t seen in 20 years. The last time Jax saw him, Diego was involved with drugs and alcohol. Jax’s girlfriend Mikayla is very supportive of his search even though she has had major losses in her life and she is afraid of losing Jax. The search takes Jax away from Toronto into some dangerous and tense situations. Mikayla also gets into some dangerous situations. 

As with life, the story has its ups and downs, its high points and its low points. Through it all Jax and Mikayla continually remind themselves and each other that they are never alone that God is always with them. This is a good reminder for every reader, no matter what they are facing. 

While the series is complete, I’m left wondering what is next for each of them. It is my hope that some (or all) of them someday re-appear in one of Davison’s books. 

Forged is definitely written for the adult audience. If placed in a K-12 Christian school library it should probably be labeled high school only due to the highly stressful situations portrayed in the book. 

I received a complimentary copy of Forged. This is my honest review.
