Book Review: False Memory by Dan Krokos

False Memory
Author: Dan Krokos
Publication: Hyperion Book CH; First Edition edition (August 14, 2012)

Description: 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 an exciting debut filled with mystery and danger. Miranda wakes up an on park bench with no memory. She soon learns that she has a strange psychic ability which frightens her badly. She is found by a boy named Peter who tells her that she is part of his team. 

When she returns to their base, she meets the other team members - Noah and Olive - and learns that they have been trained to be weapons. Miranda also learns that if they don't get frequent injections their memories are lost. However, her memory was deliberately destroyed by Noah who wanted to keep her safe. 

The kids go on the run determined not to be sold and determined to destroy those who made them into weapons. The learn they are clones when the run up against the Beta team and see that the team members are identical to them. They also meet Rhys who was part of the original team and who escaped and is determined to bring the whole organization down. 

Watching Miranda learn about the other team members again and learn about her past made this a very moving story. The story is filled with twists and turns and lots of adventure. It has has a full complement of evil scientists as villains. 

This is the beginning of a trilogy. I know that I am eager to read more to find out what happens for our heroes in this science fiction thriller.

Favorite Quote:
"Wait," I say. "Tell me what this place is all about. Tell me what I'm for. Really."

He studies me while he considers his words. "You're part of an experiment. To attain peace through chaos. You are the hope for a better tomorrow."
