Giveaway Review UNFORGOTTEN by JESSICA BRODY @JessicaBrody @FierceReads


Book Description

 February 25, 2014

Some memories are better left forgotten

After a daring escape from the Diotech scientists who created her, Seraphina and Zen believe they are finally safe from the horrors of her past. But new threats await them at every turn as Zen falls prey to a mysterious illness and Sera’s extraordinary abilities make it more and more difficult to stay hidden. Meanwhile, Diotech has developed a dangerous new weapon designed to apprehend Sera. A weapon that even Sera will be powerless to stop. Her only hope of saving Zen’s life and defeating the company that made her is a secret buried deep within her mind. A secret that Diotech will kill to protect. And it won’t stay forgotten for long. Packed with mystery, suspense, and romance, Unforgotten is the riveting second installment of Jessica Brody’s Unremembered trilogy, and delivers more heart-pounding action as loyalties are tested, love becomes a weapon, and no one’s memories are safe.

MY THOUGHTS - ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT

So, yes, there are spoilers if you have read UNREMEMBERED

After traveling back to to the English countryside in the year 1609,  Sera and Zen hope to gain what they lost in their relationship.  Things don't exactly go as planned when Zen comes becomes ill.  Sera is convicted of being a witch and scheduled to burn when she and Zen are rescued by a Diotech operative named Kaelen, who is manufactured like Sera, but supposedly without the defects.  Sera learns that Zen is ill because of the time jumping and she seeks to find a cure for his defective gene.  

This leads them on a search, complete with clues, to Dr. Maxxer, who is still at odds with Alixter.  Yes, it appears that Sera is still just another pawn in their game.  The clues lead Sera to Cody (YAY), now grown, married and with a kid of his own, has discovered the cause of Zen's illness and this also leads her back to Maxxer.  Kaelen seems to be a bit defective as well when Sera is able to reason with him.  This all climaxes in a battle which comes down to good over evil, but it did leave me hanging a bit.  So I guess I will have to wait for the next one in a year.  

This installment was even better than the first.  I was glad to see Cody back and grown up and just as smart as he was in the first book.  There is a lot of action, battling and sheer wit that Sera must see herself through to save Zen.  It used to be Zen saving Sera, but that has turned a bit now.  ARGHH!  So this one did give me more information on Diotech but there are so many questions that haven't been answered yet.  Parents:  This one had a bit of graphic violence, some kissing (ok, a lot) and some language.
