False Memory #1 False Memory

Ambitious and fresh..... Presenting False Memory #1 False Memory by Dan Krokos.

Here is the summary of the book:

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.

Dan Krokos’ debut is a tour-de-force of non-stop action that will leave readers begging for the next book in this bold and powerful new series.

You wake up one day and you don't know who you are, where you at, and why you can't remember what got you to this place. This is what starts Dan Krokos' exciting story with Miranda waking up on a park bench with forgotten memories...... but that's not right, she seems to somehow be able to create mass chaos and that boy Peter maybe her only source to get the information she wants...... which maybe detrimental not only for her but for mankind as well.

Miranda, Peter, Noah and Olive form a team of the perfect soldiers. Albeit them being teenagers, they are biologically created killing weapons created for one purpose and one purpose only .... world domination. Equipped with the ability to cause mass panic and hysteria and the various forms of fighting techniques integrated in them since conception..... they must take timely shots that helps them retain their memories as their brain processes things much faster than normal....... shocked? Well not quite I suppose because it is our heroes who get a nasty shock when they find out what is going on around them.....

I'll keep it short. Dan Krokos packs a punch with this book. There is so much going on here that it is virtually impossible to put everything in words. But I must point a certain few things out. Good world building. Strong characters. A well worth plot. The highly charging thriller and sci-fi and all those twists & turns while may make the book a bit predictable but the author manages to leave his mark with us.

Not to forget, there is some tingly and goosebumps inducing romance in here and I personally am rooting for Miranda and Peter all the way. She is one kickass heroine who almost carries the weight of the plot on her shoulders but not to worry Peter, Noah and Olive are there to help loosen some of it.

False Memory, truly packs the much needed punch. An unputdownable book. Commendation need to be given to the author. I loved the concept, the way it is presented, the action..... oh I loved everything about it and i loved the next one even more (I got the e-arc from netgalley).

  1. I can just tell this book will be awesome by that stunning cover and captivating synopsis. I think what really sucked me in is that the main character is trying to uncover her past. Great review! This needs to be on top of my TBR list.
