Review: The explosive high-quality action, well-developed characters, and high-strung plot-line equated "False Memory" to a striking and addictive thriller. Like a complex and clever origami creation, "False Memory"'s world and main character is folded from scratch, yet by the end, everything about this debut will blow you away in a wave of awesomeness!!
Miranda, our fantastic protagonist, wakes with no memories whatsoever, and although confused, she remains relatively calm. However, the peace lasts for only a split second because before you know it, you will be swept away in frighteningly intense action. The world of Dan Krokos is very modern yet underground, the futuristic science blending in smoothly to create a solid arena for the story. Along with Miranda are the line-ups of others with her destiny and physical abilities and the inside romances, friendships, and adventures prove the fantastic chemistry that the author lit amongst his dynamic characters.
"False Memory" has such an addicting and compelling plot-line that I honestly couldn't put it down. Climatic points accent the overall story in effective places and kept the pacing moving constantly. Complex , twisted and deceivingly layered, what you learn to think while reading is not going to turn out the way you think!
Through this book, the deeper theme of truly finding and knowing yourself and who you are will be clearly confirmed. Identity is an extremely important component of the developmental stage of adolescence so I found the author's theme very satisfying and cleverly chosen in relation to his target audience. -cue applause- This debut has great romance, momentum, and excitement that will knock you off your seat so come one come all and immerse in the magnetic and thrilling world of "False Memory"!

Final Notes:Ah, this book makes me all gushy because it was really quite the rollercoaster ride that refused to put you down! Once you get on, hold on tight because you will be in for the entire journey! The layering that I later discovered near the end had me comparing this book s bit to the style of the movie Inception. Sort of. To be honest, I was a tad confused near the end of this book, and it really took me a bit of turning the facts over around in my head before I really got it.Still, super enjoyable thrill of a ride!
