Miranda wakes up alone on a park bench with no memory. In her panic, she releases a mysterious energy that incites pure terror in everyone around her. Except Peter, a boy who isn’t at all surprised by Miranda’s shocking ability.
Left with no choice but to trust this stranger, Miranda discovers she was trained to be a weapon and is part of an elite force of genetically-altered teens who possess flawless combat skills and powers strong enough to destroy a city. But adjusting to her old life isn’t easy—especially with Noah, the boyfriend she can't remember loving.
Then Miranda uncovers a dark truth that sets her team on the run. Suddenly her past doesn’t seem to matter...when there may not be a future.
Some authors you can just tell are going to be amazing. I’ve had my eye on Dan Krokos and False Memory since it was announced the book was being published by Disney Hyperion. Sometimes these gut feelings are wrong but, man when they’re right the books are usually pretty amazing.
This is one of those times where my gut was right.
False Memory is an exciting blend of fantastic characters, a captivating plot, and almost non-stop action. This coupled with Krokos’s mesmerizing writing style and you’ve got a real hit on your hands.
Of course, if you’re not sure who this book will appeal to, the answer is everyone. Boys will love the non-stop action, gun fights, and mystery of the roses back-story. Girls will love the action and the love story interest.
Speaking of the love interest part of the story, when it first came up I was a little scared, I didn’t want this book, which was going in such a great direction, to get bogged down in a weak attempt at a love.
But I should have had more faith in Krokos.
Krokos weaves a story that while utilizing the love aspect of the story, it is not the primary focus, but instead a strong secondary story that helps carry the primary story of discovering the truth behind these false memories (hence the title of the book). Of course, not only is it well utilized, it is also well crafted, and between that, the interesting characters, and the shocking twists and surprises filling the book, readers will be utterly unable to put this book down.
In case you weren’t able to tell from my glowing praise, I loved False Memory. I don’t know what else to say except that I can only hope that the sequel (and there will be one) is as good as the first in this fantastic series.
