Sixteen-year-old Sera is the only survivor of an explosion on a plane. She wakes up in hospital to find that she has no memory. The only clue to her identity is a mysterious boy who claims she was part of a top-secret science experiment. The only adult she trusts insists that she shouldn’t believe anything that anybody tells her. In a tense and pacy novel exploding with intrigue and action, Sera must work out who she is and where she came from. Eventually she will learn that the only thing worse than forgetting her past is remembering it.
I had heard lots of great things about Unremembered, and once I realized that it was being released in audiobook format, I jumped at the chance to give it a try. Bottom line: I’m glad I did! I thoroughly enjoyed the story, the characters, and the concept. It was a little different from what I’m used to reading in this genre, which was an added bonus. This book had a little sci-fi, a little fantasy, and a lot of action. There were twists (some predictable, some not), there was romance, and suspenseful moments that had me on the edge of my seat. Even though I did enjoy the story, I found there were some aspects that I had issues with as well. There were times in which the pacing felt a little slow, and some of the world building/sequencing became a little (or a lot) confusing. The romance element took a little getting used to; at times the romance felt a little too much like “insta-love”, something I am not a fan of. However, that being said, by the end, it didn’t bother me as much.
This was an entertaining start to the series, and the narration was pretty fantastic. Despite my issues I had with it, I plan to keep reading the remaining two stories in the series straight away, as I can’t wait to read about what else is in store for these characters.
