Unchanged (Unremembered #3) by Jessica Brody
So many secrets are buried within these compound walls.
I used to be one of those secrets.
After returning to the Diotech compound and undergoing an experimental new memory alteration, Seraphina is now a loyal, obedient servant to Dr. Alixter and the powerful company that created her. Happy and in love with Kaelen, another scientifically-enhanced human designed to be her perfect match, Sera’s history with a boy named Zen is just a distant memory from a rebellious past she longs to forget.
But as Sera and Kaelen embark on a nationwide tour to promote Diotech’s new product line—a collection of controversial genetic modifications available to the public—Sera’s mind starts to rebel. She can’t stop the memories of Zen from creeping back in.
As more secrets are revealed, more enemies are uncovered, and the reality of a Diotech-controlled world grows closer every day, Sera will have to choose where her true loyalties lie, but it’s a choice that may cost her everything she’s ever loved.
Wow. Okay, I really wasn’t expecting that ending. That came as quite a shock and I’m still trying to process it.
This book might just be my favourite of the trilogy. I finally get the romance between Sera and Zen. Too late though? You’ll have to read it and see! I don’t know what it was about this book that finally made me fall in love with their love, but I did. And I’m officially back on team Zen (though, I still like Kaelen).
The story was good and captivating. Sera is really quite different in this book. In fact, all three of the main characters (Sera, Zen, and Kaelen) are different in this book than in the others. The story had changed them. Zen is tougher and harder and not the same hopeless romantic he once was. Kaelen has a dark side we hadn’t really seen before this book. And Sera has been manipulated to basically think the opposite of everything she knows – the truths are lies and the lies are truths.
I enjoyed this book and this series. But this book wins out of the three.
