The only thing worse than forgetting her past . . . is remembering it.

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.

My Review

This was a pretty good read. It captured my interest from the start and held it until the very end. I will be reading the second in the series.

Sera is an interesting character. She is human, but has had so many things done to her that she’s almost a robot. We don’t really find out exactly what all they have done to her or how she got into that situation in the first place. I hope to find out more in the second book, as I feel there are still a lot of gaps in the story.

It is clear that the love between Sera and Zen is strong, and I was on board with it, but at the same time I wasn’t excited about their love. I never felt any feels for this romance.

Overall, it was a good read and I’m looking forward to reading the next installment and hopefully finding out more about how Sera came to be in this predicament.
