Elsabetha Ellery doesn’t know who to trust, who her enemies are and more importantly, who her friends are. Six years are gone from her life, no one seems to know why, and those who do know are keeping it a secret. Lone survivor of a tragic accident, Elsabetha struggles to put the pieces of her past together and soon discovers her friends and even family know more than they are telling.
Two friends, Alexander and Jenna, are trying to help her remember, while mysterious forces are trying to keep her, and everyone else, from the truth. As Elsabetha searches for answers, she soon discovers that the people in her life are not who they seem, and the truth is much more devastating than she ever imagined.
Made to Forget, Samantha LaFantasie’s sophomore title, is set hundreds of years in the future, where the mysterious Nepherium fight to protect mankind from the an evil that many believe no longer exists. This fast paced mystery is LaFantasie’s first foray into the science fiction genre, and as an avid sci-fi reader, I have to say that she has done a damn fine job. The plot moves along swiftly and gives the reader just enough to keep them involved while not revealing too much, keeping the suspense and intrigue in high gear.
LaFantasie does a great job of capturing the emotional roller coaster that Elsabetha is forced to ride while trying to remember her past. My only complaint is that a few of the subplots that seemed integral to the plot were not ever fully developed. That being said; this was created as a novella series and as such, works fine as the first part.
The sequel “Echoes of Memories” is set to be released in late July 2014 and I’m looking forward to seeing what these new memories have in store for Elsabetha and her team.
