False Memory by Dan Krokos

Miranda wakes up alone on a park bench with no memory. In her panic, she releases a mysterious energy that incites pure terror in everyone around her. Except Peter, a boy who isn’t at all surprised by Miranda’s shocking ability.

Left with no choice but to trust this stranger, Miranda discovers she was trained to be a weapon and is part of an elite force of genetically-altered teens who possess flawless combat skills and powers strong enough to destroy a city. But adjusting to her old life isn’t easy—especially with Noah, the boyfriend she can’t remember loving.

Then Miranda uncovers a dark truth that sets her team on the run. Suddenly her past doesn’t seem to matter... when there may not be a future.

Dan Krokos’ debut is a tour-de-force of non-stop action that will leave readers begging for the next book in this bold and powerful new series.

My Thoughts:

False Memory was a great sci-fi adventure. In the first ten pages there is a disaster that happened at a mall that left me completely captivated. It had me hooked. I had to keep reading to find out why it happened. It's odd, I usually hate science fiction novels, but I loved this one. My favorite part was when Miranda, the main character, discovered that she was beginning to have feelings for one of the guys on her team. This book has a little bit of a love triangle in it, which I know quite a few people are getting tired of reading in young adult novels. However a little bit after the middle of the book, the love triangle gets solved. The book had no grammar or spelling errors. I like that False Memory was an original novel for the YA genre. So many books recently are very similar. I have never read anything like it before. The characters get a bit confusing at times. I had trouble figuring out which clone was which at times. Peter was my favorite character. I liked that he was a very responsible leader. That always did what was best for the group. I'm counting down the days until the sequel comes out. 
I give False Memory 5/5.

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I was in no way compensated for this review.
