False Memory (False Memory #1) by Dan Krokos
Pirate Princess’s Review
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.”

RATING 5 STARS
I loved this book very much. 🙂 It takes place, well, in America basically. The beginning and end take place in Cleveland. Other than that, they travel.
The main character is Miranda North, and she has a pretty big problem. Miranda has no memory. Stinks, huh?
Well, here I would say the main conflict, but I basically already did. Miranda has no memory. The other part of the main conflict is there’s someone they need to stop. Someone bad(Duh). But I can’t say who.
I would compair this book to Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment. The writing style in my opinion is very similair. They both made me laugh and smile. They both made me want to punch someone an uncountable number of times(Noah for this book.)
The ending of this book was good, but it almost, barely though, reminded me of the Inheritance ending(The last Eragon book), which I did not really think was a good ending. It was good, it was a cliffhanger (*silence*), and I will read the second book. I just think it needed to be better…written.
What I wasn’t a fan of in this book, was the tense shifts. They were, just, ugh. One page it would be present tense, how it’s supposed to be, two pages later it would be past tense when it wasn’t even a memory. -_-
I loved, LOVED, the action scenes. They were so well written and I just plain loved them. There was enough description for me to imagine it, but not too much where it’s mostly words. I craved these moments of the book. They were my favorite.
I recommend it to 11-Teen, even though the reading age says 12 & up. I think some adults would like this too. Fans of Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment should read it. People who also enjoyed Artemis Fowl should check this out. 😉
