There’s something that lies within my memory. Hidden in the dark. Something that can kill me and those that I love. But I was in an accident, covered in mystery and deception. And my memory…was lost. There are those who want me to remember. I don’t trust them. And those I do trust…are fighting for me to forget.
Elsabetha Ellery wants to get her memory back, even if it kills her.
After waking up in a hospital with no memory, Elsabetha quickly learns those who claim to be her friend are anything but. And those who are her true friends keep themselves unseen.
Stuck with piecing together her broken memories alone, Elsa struggles with having faith in those she trusts and heeding the warnings of the dangers in recovering her memory. Ignoring them, she faces heavy consequences. Ones she doesn’t see until it’s too late, and a life is lost.
Here we meet Elsa, who is suffering from memory loss and finds herself in a hospital without any knowledge of why and how she ended up here but she recognizes some people who are her friends but do they truly want her to be safe or there is a big secret behind their so-called friendship? On the other hand there are others who seem to be calculative and plotting against Elsa but is that their true motive or do they are the people who want Elsa to be safe for real?
This read was an engaging and gripping read for me which was really enjoyable. The fast pacing and well thought out plot really made the story intriguing. The mystery is thick and pulsing with unpredictable outcomes that will leave you breathless and totally shocked. The characterization is really remarkable and I liked the way the author excelled in portraying the emotions and confusions that Elsa felt while she was memory less.
The suspense really nagged me and made me anxious to know the end but the author spaced evenly the revelations of the secrets and the truth and I liked the slow discovery of Elsa’s memory. I liked the writing style of the author and it really made the story believable and sucked me within the plot and within the life of the characters. The action scenes were power-packed and it gave the story more and more exciting and interesting.
Overall it’s a good read but I have a complaint that is the story ended too soon and too abruptly on a cliff-hanger. I would have loved it if it would have been a novel and the ending would have been smooth. I would recommend this book to all and hope that you’ll like it as much as I did.
