Summary (from Goodreads.com)
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.
Dan Krokos' debut is a tour-de-force of non-stop action that will leave readers begging for the next book in this bold and powerful new series.
False Memory is action-packed with a fun yet enthralling with an almost comic-book like plot and settting.
Miranda, the heroine, is generous with her punches in the face and doesn't mind a stab wound or two. With no memories, she is thrown into a dangerous world where she must kill to survive and be free. With that in mind, and a team of similarly gifted teens who claim to be her friends, she sets out.
While I did like that she was tough, I felt it was a little overdone. She never had a weak moment- not even a close meltdown. As a male author, I don't think Dan Krokos can really understand that female hormones can really just attack us randomly and one moment we're just randomly having a meltdown.
The other characters are nice, if a bit flat. Hopefully, Krokos will elaborate on them and make them more dimensional.
Like I said, the plot is very interesting. I think you'll enjoy this and find it a quick read.
