Review for Must Remember by Colleen S. Myers - 5 out of 5!
SYNOPSIS - AMAZON LINK -
Nineteen-year-old Elizabeth 'Beta' Camden is a survivor. When the E'mani-those pale alien freaks-destroy Earth with a plague of madness and scoop up the remains, Beta is one of the 'lucky' ones. For years, she endures their tortures, experiments and games. Then one day, she manages to escape their ship with her life, and no memory of her time with them. Stranded on their world, Beta wanders the mountains, looking for a way home. She stumbles onto the Fost-the E'mani's ancient enemy. Their war with the Imani is old and rooted in magic that the Fost once had and the Imani crave. Magic Beta soon discovers she's developing along with strange tattoos and disturbing glimpses of her past. The Fost take her in and train her in their ways. As she spends more time with them, she falls in love with their culture and with Marin-he of the hot hands and slit eyes. But the E'mani took her for a reason and they want her back-dead or alive. If Beta doesn't remember that reason soon, they're all going to die.
MY REVIEW -
Unique and very interesting! Loved the whole premise for this story! Elizabeth wakes up on an unknown planet missing some of her memories, she's taken in by a group of people. Elizabeth doesn't know if she can trust them, and they don't know if they can trust her, but an uneasy alliance is formed. When Elizabeth's memories begin to come back, she realizes something terrible happened to her, and seeks revenge. Elizabeth also has a couple of suitors that are trying to win her affections, which leads to some steamy and intense moments. I liked both guys, but I liked the direction it went. The romance has some really hot moments, and the connection between the characters is sweet. I do think Elizabeth is a pinch of a hypocrite at times, but I still liked her, and I like that she's confident. The world Colleen S. Myers created was very cool, and the story was entertaining throughout the whole book. I liked her take on an alien planet and the aliens that inhabit it. Really enjoyed this, and on to the next book!
