Unforgotten – Jessica Brody

This is the second book in the Unforgotten trilogy written by Jessica Brody. You can find my review for the first book, here: Unremembered

“After a daring escape from the scientists at Diotech who created her, Seraphina believes she is finally safe from the horrors of her past. But new threats await Sera and her boyfriend, Zen, at every turn as Zen falls prey to a mysterious illness and Sera’s extraordinary abilities make it more and more difficult to stay hidden. Meanwhile, Diotech has developed a dangerous new weapon designed to apprehend her. A weapon that even Sera will be powerless to stop. Her only hope of saving Zen’s life and defeating the company that made her is a secret buried deep within her mind. A secret that Diotech will kill to protect. And it won’t stay forgotten for long.

Packed with mystery, suspense, and romance, this riveting second installment of Jessica Brody’s Unremembered trilogy delivers more heart-pounding action as loyalties are tested, love becomes a weapon, and no one’s memories are safe.”

Overview:

This was such an amazing and satisfying sequel to the trilogy. There were so many more elements to the story and while it got deeper, I loved that we also got some answers and finally more backstory. 

Theme/Story:

Just like the first book in the series, the whole story is really fast-paced, intriguing and unique. I really loved so many of the elements within the story and the whole over-arching theme of rebellion and love. 

Writing:

The writing style in this is really fast-paced and immersive. It was consistently suspenseful and very structured. An aspect of this book that I really enjoyed was the subtle foreshadowing within the story. I especially liked that some of it was foreshadowed in the first book and then we saw it happen in this book; and then hopefully in the next book. I picked up on a glimpse of a really spectacular end-game that I hope we get. 

Plot:

The plot in this book is insane, definitely a step up compared to it’s processor. Even more so, this book was so action-packed and enthralling that I flew through it one sitting. This book goes back into the past and also into the future which was so awesome to read about. I loved that we got such diverse settings within the story. 

Characters:

We get a few new characters in this book, and also the return of some old ones. I really liked that the vast array of characters were really different, however at times it felt pretty stereotypical. 

I’m really excited to see where this last book takes the story because we got so many awesome plot points and foreshadowing of a really awesome end-game. 

Recommend: I recommend this book if you enjoy sci-fi or time-travel, kick-butt protagonist and a really action-packed story.

Karma comes after everyone eventually. You can’t get away with screwing people over your whole life, I don’t care who you are. What goes around comes around. That’s how it works. Sooner or later the universe will serve you the revenge that you deserve.

Forgetting who you are is so much more complicated than simply forgetting your name. It’s also forgetting your dreams. Your aspirations. What makes you happy. What you pray you’ll never have to live without. It’s meeting yourself for the first time, and not being sure of your first impression.

Homeland meme → 1 season [1/1]
Homeland took the best of network TV—the sexy stakes, the Us vs. Them blueprint, the remarkably well-functioning face-recognition technology—and submerged them in the moral murk of cable. Straddling a divide that would have split lesser showrunners in two, creators Howard Gordon and Alex Gansa never stopped taking chances, doing their best work in the gray areas. On Homeland, patriots could be murderers and all politics were personal.” –Andy Greenwald
