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.

Review

The Bourne Identity is one of my favorite movies ever. Sure, super-spy with amnesia sounds a bit cliche, but there's just something about that kind of plot that is just so gosh darn cool. So of course, I just couldn't resist reading False Memory.
     I was ecstatic to find that it wasn't just some cliche plot. Yeah, it started out sounding a bit familiar, but the further I delved into this book, more originality and complete awesomeness was found. The pacing was fantastic. There was not a single moment in this book in which I was not entirely engrossed. Krokos has a serious gift for his narrative. Every action scene (There are many, I assure you) is explained in such satisfying detail, each fight sequence so intricate that you will never want to put this book down, even after you've finished it.
     With some more mature content in this book, I wouldn't recommend it to anybody who isn't at least an older teen. However, if you're comfortable with this material, you are in for one heck of a ride.

All Miranda wants is a normal life. She's determined to move past the horrible truth of her origin as a clone so she can enjoy time with her boyfriend, Peter, and the rest of her friends at school. But Miranda quickly learns that there's no such thing as normal-not for a girl who was raised to be a weapon. When one of Miranda's teammates turns rogue, it begins a war that puts the world in jeopardy. Now, Miranda must follow her instincts-not her heart-in order to save everything she's fought so hard to keep. With the image of a terrible future seared in her mind, what will Miranda have to sacrifice to protect the people she loves?

Dan Krokos's sequel to the tour-de-force False Memory is a mind-blowing thriller with high-octane action that will leave readers begging for the final book in this bold and powerful trilogy.

Review

 There are few sequels that completely satisfy me as a continuation of a book I love. I am very glad to say that False Sight fits that statement perfectly, at least in my mind. To me, this installment of a completely epic trilogy was every great thing about the first book and more. Exciting action, suspenseful suspense, and amazing plot twists. Oh boy, Mr. Krokos is a fan of the plot twists. Not a single one is predictable though; with each turn in this story, you will be shocked. You will be on the edge of your seat. You will be incredibly entertained.
     This is turning out to be a series on my favorite's shelf. I flew through these first two books in a matter of days, and I am very impatient to get my hands on that third book.
     Mr. Krokos, you have brought my hopes up greatly for the final book in this series. I have complete faith that you will make it just as incredibly awesome as the first two.

  13. I have a teenager who is a picky reader. She goes through books like nothing I've seen! I know I'm blessed but she reads a lot of books over and over because there isn't much she enjoys reading. These books, however, she would love!
