Welcome to another book review! This one is for Archetype, Book One of Two. Duology books are rare for me. It’s either a series, trilogy, or standalone. But this one was worth reading and now I need book two!
The cover is fairly accurate for the story. Emma wakes up, confused, lost, and uncertain as to what’s going on. She slowly recovers from an “accident” and has amnesia. I generally am not a fan of amnesia stories, but the author does a fantastic job with it here. This story has made me an instant fan of hers, especially the way she surprisingly weaved cool astronomy tales into it!
Emma’s mind is a jumble, but I like her inner self, who guides her in who to trust, what to say, and where to go. The sarcasm is flawless, and I give her five stars for the unexpectedly awesome humor throughout.
The plot wasn’t what had grabbed me, but the fact that it’s described as a “breathtakingly futuristic suspense”. It had some quite steamy sexy scenes in it, however. Wowza! *fans face* Though it wasn’t overly heavy in the details, and those scenes were mostly past the halfway point.
Fans of joggers and running would like this book!
If I am missing anything else, it’s because I don’t want to spoil a truly unique reading experience. The author is a fabulous writer, and I highly recommend reading/buying the book asap.
Five wonderful stars!
