YA Sci-fi Romance
Published: March 5rd 2013
When Freedom Airlines flight 121 went down over the Pacific Ocean, no one ever expected to find survivors. Which is why the sixteen-year-old girl discovered floating among the wreckage-alive-is making headlines across the globe.
Even more strange is that her body is miraculously unharmed and she has no memories of boarding the plane. She has no memories of her life before the crash. She has no memories period. No one knows how she survived. No one knows why she wasn't on the passenger manifest. And no one can explain why her DNA and fingerprints can't be found in a single database in the world.
Crippled by a world she doesn't know, plagued by abilities she doesn't understand, and haunted by a looming threat she can't remember, Seraphina struggles to piece together her forgotten past and discover who she really is. But with every clue only comes more questions. And she's running out of time to answer them.
Her only hope is a strangely alluring boy who claims to know her from before the crash. Who claims they were in love. But can she really trust him? And will he be able to protect her from the people who have been making her forget?
From popular young adult author Jessica Brody comes a compelling and suspenseful new sci-fi series, set in a world where science knows no boundaries, memories are manipulated, and true love can never be forgotten.
MY OVERVIEW: Exciting, boring, exciting... wait! That is the ending?!?!?!? That is how you are leaving it?!?!?!? Talk about a cliff-hanger (literally).
PROS: Seraphina's character is written in a way that is likeable and relatable, even though she has no memories. It is a quick and intriguing read, filled with mystery and romance. Zen's character was also written well. You could tell that he cared a lot for Sera and would do anything for her.
CONS: I felt that the romance was a little too overdone in this book. It seemed that Sera was encouraged to focus more on that, than finding out why there are people after her. It also got a little dry in the middle.
MY FINAL THOUGHTS: With an ending like that, why wouldn't I read the next one! I look forward to finding out what happens with Sera and Zen.
