What the mind forgets, the heart remembers.
Alone in a train station bathroom, Sophia Hernandez has no memory of who she is or how she got there. All she’s certain of are three things: her college ID is a lie, bad people are coming for her, and no one can be trusted.
The only clue to her past is the fellow student who finds her. Although Sophia’s gut tells her Kyle is lying when he claims he can’t help her, his touch makes her heart race. Is it because of a red-hot natural attraction, or a missing memory of something far more dangerous?
As two mysterious, menacing men chase them from the station, Sophia’s memories return in frustrating fragments. So do deadly skills she didn’t know she had. In the next forty-eight hours, a loved one’s life will be on the line as she sifts through a mounting tangle of secrets and lies.
Including the most heart-wrenching secret of all. Not only isn’t she a normal college student, she isn’t even a normal human.
Warning: Contains one girl who is more than she seems, one boy who knows more than he’s telling, and enough twists to give you whiplash. Expect explosions of all kinds.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
This was a very exciting and fun story, with a ton of twists and reveals. These elements, which made for a great read, make this book extremely hard to review. There are so many surprises which affect everything that happens after that point, that mentioning almost anything would be a spoiler.
The story is told with alternating present time events, and flashbacks as Sophia remembers things. It was never confusing, and lent to the mysterious feel of the story. It helped me connect with and understand Sophia as she never seemed to know anything that the reader didn’t. It made the flashbacks even more important.
Overall, I know this is a rather vague review, but anything more would have spoilers. There is so much excitement in the story, and how everything is revealed that I don’t want to spoil anything. I will say that this story is very exciting, and it will be interesting to see what happens next as events in the second book will be very different.
