Review - Unremembered by Jessica Brody

Unremembered (Unremembered, #1)Release Date: March 5th 2013
Buy it: Amazon
Add it: Goodreads

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.

I am a huge fan of Jessica Brody's work, so when a chance came up to win an ARC of Unremembered I jumped at the chance and entered the giveaway everyday and I was lucky enough to be one of 5 winners.

I actually read Unremembered in January when my ARC turned up and it was amazing it only took me 2 days to read and for them 2 days I was up till silly O'Clock reading (and I got to miss a lecture
because I slept through my alarm).

I love the way Jessica took a news story about a sole survivor of a plane crash and put her own spin on it and turn it into an amazing book. I am trying not to give away any spoilers because that will just ruin the book for anyone so I am going to keep this review short.

The first few chapters of the book are all about trying to discover who the girl floating among a plane wreck is, she has no injuries and no memory of who she is. There is little known about the girl, there's no DNA records, no finger print records in any database and no one knows why she was on the plane in the first place and we don't get to find out the answers to any of these until near the end of the book.

Then there's the mystery guy Zen who says he knows Seraphina but she doesn't remember him even though she feels a pull towards him. He knows things about Seraphina that other people don't know about her which just confuses her even more and when the two get together Seraphina gets flashbacks of the two of them - and much more - so we can see more about them both together as a couple and more about Seraphina and some of the unanswered questions get answered.

Seraphina is awesome and because she can't remember anything it leaves the reader guessing as to who she is and where she is from and Zen is a great character but other than the flashbacks we don't really know much about him other than what his parents do. I also like Cody because what geeky teenager who hates 'perfect' girls will do what he did for a girl who is 'perfect'?

This is the first sci-fi book that I have read and it was full of action, twists and turns and one shocking part of the story that I did not see coming and the ending was a big WOW and I didn't see it coming.

Unremembered would have got 5 stars from me but Jessica ended it on a cliffhanger and I hate cliffhangers.
