Everything is slipping away from Memory.
The bond of friendship between her, Eloryn, Roen, and Will, that was formed while running for their lives is tearing. In a world that doesn’t feel like home, with a mind filled with nothing but questions, Memory struggles to be true to herself… whoever that is. When her past self starts haunting her, she knows her sanity could be the next thing she will lose.
This book is hard to review only because I originally decided it would be a DNF but I was at 57% and since I was reading it with a friend and she told me it got better I should try again, I did. However my view wasn’t any different when I continued. Let me explain, I LOVED the first book so much that I got a picture of the last illustration that is in the book hanging on my wall. The author is a wonderful illustrator as well as telling an interesting story but somehow I just wasn’t feeling this book, I was totally heartbroken. The characters just weren’t evolving like I wanted and at times I was so frustrated with how the story was going that it was a bit predictable. Everyone was just so mean to each other and I just wasn’t understand the flow of the story by the time I did finish it I still had questions and it had a bit of a cliff hanger. It was very slow in the beginning and at one point I just kind of gave up on it all. The last 20% was interesting and the illustrations were phenomenal but it didn’t save the story for me.
The story leaves off about were the last one ended but it threw in a bunch of stuff that I wasn’t sure needed to be in the book because once I got closer to the end I realized most of it didn’t really matter at least to me and most was unresolved. I was hoping for more of progress and I felt we are still in the same place the 1st left off. I really do love the characters but the frustration of them was overwhelming and I just didn’t understand why I still have as many questions as I did after the first book.
Since this was almost a DNF I gave it 3 stars. They are characters I was familiar with but the story is what really hurt the story for me. I am hoping the next book wraps up all the ends in this book and finally pulls the story together. I just felt like this book was a set up for the next one and for some reason those kind of book, for me, never seem to work like I hope they would.
