Reviews for Unremembered
Great Blend mystery and sci-fi make for unique new series!
Wow oh wow! Did I love this novel! I read the e-arc and I gotta say I couldn't put it down. There was a little slowness in the beginning because Seraphina doesn't remember anything, not what she looks like, not how to eat or take care of herself, absolutely nothing. And certainly, she doesn't remember how she survived the crash that killed everyone else on board Flight 121 bound for Tokyo. But she doesn't remain anonymous for long. Her picture is flashed on the t.v. screens and news papers everywhere asking if anyone recognizes her. Of course, it goes viral. But some mysterious boy keeps popping in and out of her life, first in the hospital saying she shouldn't be there and he'd get her out and then later in various other places. He's always trying to convince her to trust him and believe her, but she's always trying not to believe him. Seraphina is a very logical, reasonable, ordered person and the things this boy tells her don't follow logic and reason.
This is part mystery, part romance and definitely heart pounding. I just can't tell you how much I loved this novel! I couldn't follow the clues fast enough and it wasn't until the very end that I finally figured out how Sera ended up in the middle of the ocean when she wasn't on the airplane that crashed. The clues are slow in coming, but not so slow that you're bored or lose interest. Sera is smart and strong and as her memory comes back so does her will to survive and save. This book is exciting right up until the very last line! I didn't realize this was a series because, to me, the ending was so good. I mean, I just trusted the ending. But I am more than happy that there will be more books in this series. They just can't come fast enough!!
I received an e-ARC of the novel from the publisher through NetGalley. The opinions expressed in this review are my own. I was not compensated in any way for my review.
Don't forget that currently the first 5 chapters of the novel are available for free on most digital formats. I don't know how long that will last so get it while you can! by Heather Rosdol
A Compelling Start to a New Sci-Fi YA Series
Unremembered is a compelling start to a new sci-fi YA series. I was continually intrigued by Seraphina and even more so by the boy from her past. I didn't expect the reasoning behind everything to be what it was, so that was a well received surprise for me. The mystery aspect of the story was well played out and as this is a trilogy, there is still much that remains undiscovered.
While the focus is on Seraphina, the other characters that we are introduced to along the way are all very memorable and substantial in their personalities. There were a few moments in the latter portion of the novel that I had to reread a few times to understand what was going on, but as Seraphina was a bit confused as well, it wasn't an issue for me. I will certainly be picking up the next book in the series to see where the story takes us.
