For Sam Ryan, life began at age fourteen. She has no memory of her parents or her childhood. In a decade of service with the State Police, Sam has exhausted the resources of the force searching for clues to her identity. But all mention of her family seems to have been deliberately wiped off the record. Everything changes the night Sam’s missing partner resurfaces as a vampire . . . and forces her to kill him in self-defense. Now Sam is charged with murder. Suspended from the force, and with no one left to trust, Sam accepts some unexpected help from Gabriel Stern, a shapeshifter who conceals startling secrets.
While investigating the circumstances surrounding her partner’s strange behavior, Sam discovers that Garbriel’s been involved with a dangerous organization that’s planning a war on the human race. More immediate, someone is guarding the truth about Sam’s past—someone who’d rather see her dead than risk her knowing too much. To stay alive, Sam must unravel the threads of her past—and find out not only who she is but what she is.
Memory Zero was first published in 2004, but has since been republished in 2014 with a new book cover. I have to say I really like the 2014 book cover. It’s eye catching.
WOW!! Memory Zero hooked me. I couldn’t put the book down and read it almost in one sitting.
I absolutely adored the mystery behind Sam and who or what she is. She doesn’t remember her past and the records that could help her, do not exist or were hidden by influential people. But things in her life soon take on a new turn and now she’s got to discover a new mystery besides finding out about herself. It’s all so intriguing!! Sam’s past, the mystery on her partner Jack, this war that’s coming, and everything else that pops up. I can’t wait to fully unravel it all in this three book series.
I loved the characters, plot, mystery, and well, everything. It’s action-packed throughout and the plot takes us away. Sam soon finds herself in the middle of something. The suspense and mystery keep her and us on our toes and on the edge of our seats. Sam, our heroine, is a determined person, dedicated to learn the truth, loyal and sweet, but that’s not all, because she’s full of flaws and fears. We get some answers, some changes in Sam, and then there are still more things to figure out. I’m very curious to see what Sam will become and where the mystery leads us.
As for a romance, don’t expect anything big, because there is none, but it does have the potential and the possibility for there to be a romance.
Memory Zero focuses on the mysteries and a war that’s coming to this world. So much happens and I can’t wait to dive into Generation 18.
This review will also be posted at Angel’s Guilty Pleasures next week.
